By day, I'm a domestic violence prosecutor. By night, I read romance to restore my faith in love, relationships, and humanity in general. 

More Self-Helpy than I Expected

Everything I Know About Love I Learned from Romance Novels - Sarah Wendell

I love Sarah Wendell's blog (Smart Bitches Trashy Books) and her podcast with Jane Litte of Dear Author (DBSA Romance Fiction Podcast), and I really really loved Beyond Heaving Bosoms: The Smart Bitches Guide to Romance Novels, which is both smart and uproariously funny. So, I was very excited when I found a used copy of Everything I Know about Love for pennies, and I liked this book, but didn't love it. I think the problem is that having already followed Wendell's blog and podcast and twitter and read her prior book, I'd heard all of this before, so it didn't feel fresh. Also, this is almost a self-help book (though humorous), which I wasn't really expecting, and which isn't really my cuppa.
