Just so you know, this is actually a really good movie and everyone should watch it for the numerous occasions Chris Evans is shirtless for inexplicably no legitimate reason, like that one scene where he greets Anna Faris naked with a newspaper over his dick. Delilah Darling has a history of banging a collective pool of dudes with shitty circus-sounding names and shitty personalities to match that no one in their right minds would ever want to bang, let alone WRITE about banging Tim the Townie?
Delaware Pepper?? Grody Gourdy??? Why not just add in Krusty the Clown? Twenty pages later, Delilah is laid off from her job, but inexplicably has enough unemployment money to go on a road trip across America hitting up her exes one at a time in the hopes of rekindling a relationship with THE ONE, which is clearly supposed to be a reformed shitty carnival dude. Delilah proceeds to spend the rest of the book allowing random, obscure statistically inaccurate numbers from a random, obscure, statistically inaccurate magazine dictate her sexual integrity, despite the fact that no one else in the book gives a shit about how many pathetic penises her vagina has accosted.
The introduction of Not-Chris-Evans Colin leaves a lot to be desired. Like, why are you not Chris Evans? Colin: Yes, you were. Delilah: Ok. Colin: Ok. Delilah is not even accompanied on said road trip by Colin for there to be any potential romance to evolve. Instead, she spends the entire duration of her road trip accompanied by Eva, her Yorkie dog, who offers all the emotional counseling and support of a loofah.
In sum, there was no opportunity for Delilah and Colin to develop any real chemistry. In fact, Delilah has more chemistry with her shitty exes than with Colin. This is because Delilah and her exes are all bat shit crazy.
20 Times a Lady
Just like with sex partners, make the right choices, and don't choose bad books. Overall Rating : 1 star. Scandalized by the fact that I made myself read this with my own two eyes. View all 5 comments. I wanted to get back into the romance genre since I've put it on hold on for almost a year but This sadly, was just not the read for me.

I like the plot, it's kinda crazy but super fun. I think the main character grows throughout the book and even though she does silly things sometimes, you can't hate her, you simply laugh. Sep 19, Krissy Delovely rated it did not like it. My main reason for picking up this book was because my favorite writer in the history of ever, Jen Lancaster, recommended Karyn's books. That may be because they're friends. I'm pretty sure of it. Jen has never steered me wrong with her recommendations but after finishing this book I.
I wanted my time back! For me, this was one of those books where halfway through I began thinking "finish it? Or abandon it? Which is the lesser of two evils at this point? I am loyal. I am committed. And I made a mistake because I chose to finish this book. The premise of this is OK: girl's slept with 20 guys. She freaks out because that's far above the average and she doesn't want to sleep with any more because she doesn't want to seem slutty.
Who the fuck cares about her number? It was clear from the book that nobody but her cared. She didn't realize this. She also doesn't realize that her brilliant plan of road tripping the country to see if there's anything left with any of them is not so much brilliant as it is completely batshit crazy. Basically she lost me after she mapped out her plan to travel the US in an attempt to reconnect with these guys. Who does that? Not only that! There's more! Conveniently she's axed from her job, so she has time to take this little trip around the country.
She also has a severance package. Maybe I have a bit of a skewed view since I just used my savings for things like, um, food and rent, while I'm in between jobs, but that? Is a stupid fucking idea and a horrible premise for a book, even one as light as a chick lit novel. McKrissy is not impressed. And pissed that I chose to not chuck the book across the room after her road trip began.
Because I am a positive person, I want to find some good in this hot mess.

So here are the things I liked: - She gets a puppy quickly after she starts her trip. A bad life choice? Perhaps but I love her little puppy. That dog is the best part of the book, in my opinion. Again, it takes her thinking that faking an addiction is a great idea for this to happen. I did also learn about the dangers of Peyote, so there's that, too. Yes, this is a "Chick Lit" book, so perhaps I shouldn't have had high expectations. But the premise for this book is laughable at best. Delilah is an unrelatable and practically unlikeable heroine.
I questioned her motives in every chapter. She's almost 30, too, so I have a hard time believing that she wouldn't have done a bit of soul searching before now. Instead it takes an article about likely false social norms in sex and then being in a rehab center for her to take a look at herself and what she wants. The premise could have been a fantastic jumping point for a book about a woman who learns about herself and questions societal expectations.
Instead it was page filler that got more and more unbelievable with every new chapter. Don't read this. There are much much MUCH better novels out there if you need a light-hearted beach read. Mar 10, Cienne Olaes rated it it was amazing Shelves: , favorites. I just never knew that I am going to love it this much.

Every page is like sneaking in and taking part to the life of Delilah Darling, feeling as if it was your voice speaking for her. Although, there may be minor flaws as to the way she wrote it, the structure and creative setting of characters have somehow concealed it, thus, allow readers to feel more relax and literally laugh page after page. It also felt nice to have a Filipino touch in it; there is a special page.
It may not be flattering but it just amazes me how some foreign authors were able to embed it in their novel like it was some kind of a French word. It was inspiring to realize that mistakes make up the better person we are now and is bound to become. It is a bit naughty but assumed safe to read for the not so naughty. It is definitely a must-have to every chick-lit fan. View all 3 comments. Apr 10, Ronald Lim rated it did not like it. I was expecting the bare minimum from this book. KB: Yes. When I was [still] writing the book, I met with some producers who were interested in it.
They all wanted to make it a girl who had ten boyfriends, 10 guys she dated, not 20 men she slept with, and I was like "No, no, no, no, no, that's not the story. The book was originally titled "20 Times a Lady. KB: I was told that they thought "20 Times a Lady" sounded too much like a chick flick, and they didn't want the movie to just appeal to women. They thought the issue itself would appeal to men and women. Do you think men have a "number"?
Do they hit a point when they're like "I've slept with a lot of people maybe this is not great"? KB: Maybe, but I think it is very different for men. When I was doing my research, there was a guy getting married whose fiancee asked him, "How many women have you slept with? That was his lie! He was actually at around You wrote your first book, " Save Karyn ," about getting into and out of deep credit card debt.
Which do you think women have a harder time forgiving themselves for: high credit card debt or a high number? KB: I don't think either one proves anything about the person that you are. I don't think either one is shameful. We make them shameful, but they're actually not. I've got a lot of other really great qualities.
