Everything Is Perfect When You're A Liar - Oxford

Everything Is Perfect When You're A Liar is a series of disjointed, but quite hysterical, essays written by Kelly Oxford, a writer who found success first via the internet. She is well known and loved on Twitter. 

Oxord offers vignettes from her life, starting with her childhood efforts to become a famous director by staging a live performance of Star Wars (spoiler: failed!) and peeing in her pants while trying to purchase cigarettes, to running away to Hollywood to try to find Leonardo DiCaprio and inform him that she is his soul mate (spoiler: also failed!), being "gay bashed" in a state park while having sex - with her husband, and ultimately Disney World with her husband and three children (complete with children vomiting, adult melt downs, and the destruction of  a child's innocence) - but seriously, its funny, trust me.

As the title intimates, life is not quite perfect...but when you look at it from afar, it really is quite funny! Entertaining and well worth the read for its easiness to get through when you are trying to just clear your head and relax.

3/5- Good. Read it, have a good time and move on. Or not.
