    A darn funny listen y'all

    I truly enjoyed listening to this book read by the author. There were humorous observations of life from the perspective of a southerner, but they ring true no matter where you are! She tells it like it is.

    My southern spirit animal

    This book is funny. Really funny. Maybe because Celia is like the southern version of myself. From falling in love with granite, to dealing with popular moms and tween sleepovers, she is my spirit animal.

    This book was written around 10 years ago, so there are some references yall might not get if you are younger. But they are still funny.

    Story? What story?!

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think that maybe southern belles would enjoy this, although, not knowing any, I still have my doubts.

    Has Belle Weather turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. This is pegged as a comedy book and I love nothing more than laughing so hard it hurts. This didn't even get a snicker.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator is the author and I don't know who told her she should read her book herself because it's almost painful to the ears.

    What character would you cut from Belle Weather?

    The main character.

    Hilarious, and down to earth!

    Where does Belle Weather rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is one of the more hilarious books I have read. It was my first Cecilia Rivenbark books, and I will definitely say there will be more to come in my future!

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cecilia was my favorite character of course because she is so down to earth, the other moms seem so ridiculous. I love someone that can be real and has no problem letting others know just why and how they are so ridiculous.

    Have you listened to any of Celia Rivenbark’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have not but I will be in the near future!

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was, and luckily I was on a long car drive. It kept me laughing the entire way!
