Publisher's Summary

Andi Dorfman, breakout star of ABC's The Bachelorette and New York Times best-selling author of It's Not Okay, returns with this new collection of her adventures as a still-single gal surviving and thriving in New York City.

Sharing moments like finding her first New York apartment (the front door broke so she had to use the fire escape), her first dates on "celebrity Tinder" and finally, watching her ex-fiancé propose to another woman on Bachelor in Paradise, Andi Dorfman doesn't shy away from pulling back the curtain on the life of a reality star who's returned to reality.

Dorfman's supremely relatable personality has inspired incredible devotion from her fans, who follow her every move on social media. Filled with a mix of romantic mishaps, city adventures, and, of course, plenty of insider Bachelor details, Andi's new book is Sex and the City for the reality TV generation.

Shallow

Don’t waste your money. Borrow from a friend or the library. Shallow, disappointing and very annoying with the author as narrator. Sorry! I liked the first book.

You're a former Bachelorette, not a celebrity

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I gave this story 3 stars because some of the stories are interesting and it's an easy read. But I was so bothered by her attitude. She clearly thinks she is the coolest thing since sliced bread and it's a little ridiculous. She made herself sound very bratty, she compares it to Sex and the City and I think those girls were more humble than she makes herself sound.

Entitled Whining disguised as SATC

Andi Dorfman loses all the kinship her readers felt in her first book. Complaining about #firstworldproblem scenarios most NYC transplants can’t even BEGIN to afford as if she’s some Everywoman and clearly just trying to turn herself into Carrie Bradshaw. She’s clearly a privileged princess who coasts by without anything relatable for her r

Pass on this one

Seemingly a self serving account of a desperate late blooming female’s foray into living away from home for the first time (she goes about things as if) and all the college level C Movie related adventures that are pathetic at best...wish I could get my credit returned from Audible ;(

A waste of time

I liked Andi on the bachelor and really enjoyed her first book (mostly for bachelor gossip). Her second book was just a story of her super privileged life in NYC while she complains about everything. Her dating stories are sad tales of her insanely high standards, where she writes guys off for saying “how r u” instead of “how are you”. This book was a huge waste of my time and I lost brain cells reading it.

More enjoyable than her first book

What did you like best about Single State of Mind? What did you like least?

Compared to Andi's first book (about overcoming heart break), I found her second book to be much more enjoyable. Finding / redefining yourself is something every person has done at some point in their lives, and Andi's fun and honest account allows readers / listeners to laugh and cry along with her ups and downs around moving to a new city for a new start. I thought her storytelling was much better in this book, and it had a nice flow.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I'm still deciding what my next listen will be, but I will say that I didn't read / listen to Andi's novels because I love Bachelor fan fiction. I actually just really like her and her style of storytelling. I'm sure, though, that fans of Bachelor Lit will eat it up.

What does Andi Dorfman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love Andi's raspy voice. I loved it when she was on TV, in her first book, and now again. It's raw and honest, just like her writing.

Do you think Single State of Mind needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I don't think there needs to be a follow-up book, but I wouldn't mind seeing Andi write about some other topics now that she's covered heart break and dating.

Not the best

Easy read but lacks depth and carries many conceptual contrasts. Furthermore, author’s over-crediting herself for an state-to-state move, in a city where half its workforce essentially moved from different “continents” and had to overcome many real obstacles in much younger ages, can’t be more of a non-existing privileged person struggle. While as a modern woman I don’t take issues with objectifying men, author’s overly usage of adjective to describe men that are enticing to her being their “hotness” is almost degrading, quite sad, and has a LA kind of state of mind to it not NY. It is as if the writer really is convinced to have finally fit in but can’t help to quickly reveals her cover by unconsciously narrating the story from her LA sort of mindset. The one good thing about NY is that people are career oriented and more intellectual. Even in the Sex and the City there are elements of progressiveness and consistently in the theme. For god sake the writer ends her book by saying soon or one day I won’t be the fifth wheel of the family ruining the whole book. She even goes further and referring to all her exes as losers, oddly self serving and portrays low level of self awareness.

Meh

I had high hopes for this book because I love Andi. But I found it more about her hookups then her life in New York. Kind of struggled to finish.
