Ellen DeGeneres's winning, upbeat candor has made her show one of the most popular, resilient, and honored daytime shows on the air, and her life makes for great (and very funny) reading. Relatable, her first stand-up special in 15 years, aired on Netflix in 2018. "I've experienced a whole lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?" Seriously... I'm Kidding is a lively, hilarious, and often sweetly poignant look at the life of the much-loved entertainer as she opens up about her personal life, her talk show, and more.

Like my title says, it's not a bad read takes some time to warm up to the book, but meh... I rather watch her on the Ellen Show instead of reading the book. Just a thought. Still her fan though!show more

Did I enjoy this book: I picked this book because I love Ellen Degeneres. She�¢??s hilarious so I knew I�¢??d love the book. Turns out, I was wrong; not about loving Ellen. That�¢??s impossible. I was wrong about loving the book. If any other writer in the world sent this pointless, rambling collection of short stories to a publisher, it would land with a sickening thud in the trash heap. Her humor works so well live but is too disjointed and circumlocutory to hold my admittedly short attention span. I got a few chuckles out of the book but had to work so hard to finally get to them that I was too frustrated to enjoy it. You can watch her for free. If you work, set your DVR. She�¢??s hysterical. But save your money on the book. For me, it just didn�¢??t work. Would I recommend it: No. As reviewed by Belinda at Every Free Chance Book more
