  • This book is absolutely laugh out loud FUNNY I was born in the Midwest and lived there 12 years, moved to the South and lived there for 12 years, and moved back to the Midwest 20 years ago, so I consider myself a transplanted southerner Not only did I live in the South, but my Nanny maternal Grandma was born and raised in West Virginia, so my upbringing was heavily influenced by a Southerner This book brought a smile to my face, laughter to my lips and tears to my eyes in turn, bringing back a f [...]

  • My ReviewThis is my first book by Shellie Rushing Tomlinson and I was in for a surprise Shellie is the creator of All Things Southern, and strives to give everyone tips and lessons on the southern life Being a southerner, I appreciated her efforts and could identify with some of her sayings She just has such a extremely funny way to teaching I have to say the same as Jeff Foxworthy s quote on the front of the book, It is truly a Laugh Out Loud book Shellie covers many topics in this book includi [...]

  • Enjoying this one so much that I m rationing the final chapters, so as to extend much needed laughing aloud moments Shellie s unique story telling talent translates into her writing perfectly So glad I ve heard her voice it seems to arrive on the page with the perfect inflection on each sentence Also appreciating the collection of phrases and anecdotes They are generating forgotten childhood memories, causing a desire to go back home and capture stories time for a cousins reunion before it s too [...]


  • This book is absolutely hilarious Laugh out loud tears down your face funny At one point I found myself laughing so hard with tears running down my face that I couldn t hardly answer the phone when it rang Then I started telling the person on the other end of the line all about the book The big question is How did I miss the first book Suck Your Stomach In Put Some Color On Now I am gonna have to look that one up Ladies and I say ladies because men just can t appreciate this kind of funny, you d [...]


  • How I wish I could give a book NO stars I don t even know where to begin I believe this might be the very first time maybe second that I have abandoned a book before actually finishing it I m currently on page 69 and I can t bring myself to continue reading I just CAN T do it, and not for lack of trying Annoying is the word that comes to mind Well, annoying and irritating and unbearable I currently live in the South, and have lived in the South for quite a few years now, and I have yet to meet a [...]


  • Shellie Tomlinson is the Erma Bombeck of the South If you ve ever lived in the South or even wanted to live in the South you ll laugh out loud at some of the eccentricities Southerners have that Shellie brings to light She s spot on with some of the quirky Southern behavior Cute book.



  • I wasn t sure what to expect from Shellie Rushing Tomlinson s latest book, Sue Ellen s Girl Ain t Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy The Belle of All Things Southern Dishes on Men, Money, and Not Losing Your Midlife Mind.Tomlinson was a new to me author and one whose website All Things Southern was a place I had never ventured Julie from Book Hooked Blog recently raved about the book, and comedian Jeff Foxworthy wrote a blurb saying it was laugh out loud funny, so I decided it must be worth my time.Sue [...]


  • I m kind of on a Southern humor kick right now, can you tell When I saw that a tour was available through LitFuse, I jumped at the chance I am a HUGE fan of this author Before I tell you about the book I have to tell you my story about this author Two years ago I had major surgery and was in bed for three weeks I took my pain medication as directed, no overdosing, but I did not understand the need to taper off So, I wound up having a terrible withdrawal I spent several days doing nothing but cry [...]

  • Now I have to say that when I picked this up, I thought it was a chick lit book But I saw it was a book of essays observations ala Erma Bombeck with a little sweet tea for flavor Shellie is a great storyteller, and does what I love best tells about 12 tales at the same time This book is sit pay attention funny, not in your face funny, and it works for her Southern tips I use quotes because for me, this is common knowledge though my mother would hate to know that I don t use my knowledge all the [...]


  • Being from the Texas, I love Southern books I picked this up because of good reviews and the title was catchy Being in need of a few laughs, I had high hopes I tried several times, in vain, to trudge through this book I just did not find it funny There were cute moments, but that is about it Overall it made Southern women seem like conniving airheads Maybe if I was a teenager I would find this humor funny Sadly, I didn t It was pure fluff It was redneck than southern, unfortunately I was very d [...]


  • I received this book for free through a Giveaway The following is my unsolicited review.As my username implies, I m a Northern gal, but I have plenty of friends and relatives from down south I knew I d enjoy this book and I wasn t disappointed Ms Tomlinson is a witty Southern belle with a great sense of humor I especially enjoyed the little snippets in the margins which appeared throughout the book I can t wait to try the recipes too, as they had my mouth watering.


  • I marked this as to read because I was informed I won a give away I sent all my information as instructed and NEVER GOT THE BOOK sigh And it was one I wanted too Certainly not buying it now, though.


  • Parts of this book were hilarious, and for the most part I really enjoyed it However, I did find that there were a few little stories topics I really just couldn t relate to.


  • I can just hear my mother in law telling some of these stories in my head I m sure she used some of the recipes too.


  • Totally adorable So many laugh out loud moments The recipes are wonderful They remind me of dinners at Mama Chris house back home.



  • Wasn t as funny as I d thought it would have been based on the title and reviews Was hoping for something closer to a Celia Rivenbark or Jen Lancaster book.




  • n ssome parts were laugh out loud funny most of the book was not it was very hard to get into I m from the south love when we make fun of ourselves but this just wasn t itstopped on pg 67



  • Funny book, but a little too scattered for me The recipes sound fantastic though I can t wait to try a few of them out.
