    1. As a grown man without children, it goes without saying that I know absolutely nothing about motherhood. I do, however, know what’s funny, and A.K. Turner’s “Little Piggy” is very, very funny indeed. The writing is crass, uncensored, frequently profane, and almost always witty and genuinely laugh-out-loud hilarious. It rather reminds me of the film “Bridesmaids”, where a guy can see the crude, down-to-earth and human situations that women go through and appreciate the humor, despite [...]

    2. somehow i forgot or wasn't aware that this was a memoir when i started. i wanted it to have more of a story line - even as a memoir. i feel like it's billed incorrectly - it claims to be about someone who swore off ever having kids who suddenly "finds herself with child" when really she made a conscious choice to have kidsme of the individual anecdotes are amusing enough, but there is no real coherence to the book as a whole, and the theme of wanting to drink while being a parent got a little ol [...]

    3. This might be the funniest book I have ever read. AK Turner shares hilarious stories about owning pets, traveling, drinking, raising kids, and hanging out with the in-laws, among other things. I especially appreciated her raw honesty about parenting -- the subject we've all been tempted to lie about, pretending that it is just as easy as the parenting manuals suggest. I might just read it again (and again) when I need a good laugh!

    4. This book is freaking hilarious. It think it does for motherhood what Autobiography Of A Fat Bride did for marriage -- take all the sad, or maddening, or silly bits about life and make it so funny that I cry. There were moments when I felt like maybe I could manage the whole motherhood thing after all. I mean, if she could do itbut then she pees down her leg, and I laugh again and resolve to just be a crazy cat lady for the rest of my life. Either way, I devoured this book in just a couple of da [...]

    5. Like Irma Bombeck at her very best, A.K. Turner talks about outgrowing adolescence and embracing marriage and motherhood with side-splitting humor and profound understanding. It would be unfair to give away even one "for instance," as every scene is so carefully set up and the laughs perfectly timed. Make sure you've emptied your bladder and warned anyone within earshot to expect snorts, hoots, giggles, and belly laughs. You'll hate seeing the remaining pages dwindle to none.

    6. One word.HILARIOUS! For a debut Indie author and a Kindle freebie, I was extremely wowed by this author's wit, charm, and raw honesty about family and motherhood. She is right up there with the likes of Laurie Natoro and other best selling authors of this genre! I highly recommend AK Turner's This Little Piggy and will definitely be purchasing the next book in the series. Without a doubt, one of the funniest, laugh out loud books I've read all year! This is a must read! 5 stars!

    7. 3.5 starsThis is more vignettes than story. Humorous and surprisingly readable. Usually with this sort of book, it's better if I read in snippets because my sense of humor becomes jaded, but somehow with this I didn't feel that sense of bombardment. The running theme is the alcohol that helps parents get through child rearing. That did start to feel like it was a little repetitious, and if I didn't think it was meant somewhat tongue-in-cheek, I'd be concerned about the author's drinking problem. [...]

    8. This is a hysterical take on marriage, motherhood, and everything in between. I was wondering how appropriate it was to read while pregnant, but found that there's a lot more humor in it than simply drinking. Witty, well-written roller coaster of a book about the sometimes mundane everyday life. Must read for all moms needing a laugh.

    9. I don't know why but when I started reading this I totally thought it was a fictional novel. I was laughing outlout at the Turner Speak chapter because it's so relocatable and still so funny. That was also the chapter when I realized I was reading more of a memoir than a story. Still I enjoyed it.

    10. I'd like to give this a Between 3 and 4 Stars. The essay about her in-laws' use of language (and more specifically, her brother-in-law while singing), truly made me laugh out loud and wipe tears away (ask my husband). The rest of it I enjoyed, even if I couldn't really relate it to so much because I'm not a parent. The drinking aspect was one I felt might have been a little more on the surface as a way to give the book an "edge" and help it sell (otherwise who wants to just read about being a mo [...]

    11. A relaxed, funny read. I enjoyed the first half much more than the second, perhaps because I'm not a parent and don't identify with some of the humor as easily as I did early on. Overall though I did like the direct, "dear diary", chatting-with-sister kind of humor. Turner doesn't add any frills she knows what's ridiculous, embarassing, or/and hilarious and shares. Something for which I'm appreciative. It's nice to just read a few paragraphs at a time and still feel the need to smile almost imme [...]

    12. I just started this book today, got it as a free e-book d/l from over a month ago. I have been laughing out LOUD! I mean DEEP FROM MY SOUL LAUGHING from chapter One! I am not a Mother (and no intention of EVER being one), but I must say this is a MUST READ for any soon-to-be-mother or a New Mother. It will help her keep a-hold of her sanity with a side-dish of laughter. Pay close attention to Chapter 6 and 16, "TRUST" YOU'LL THANK ME! Well if not me(since I'm not a mother) the Author!!!!

    13. AK Turner's book on parenthood, in laws and just what to do when those plans for not having children don't go as planned. No mattern which chapter you pick,there will be section that will make you laugh until it hurts and also sections that every parent or spouse will say "Yeah I can relate to that." My personal favorite was when she decided to try marijuana for the first time in her 30s while vacationing in Mexico. If it doesn't make you laugh so hard you'll cryen you are a very hard person to [...]

    14. A light, funny book to read when you just want a relaxing read. There is some foul language, especially at the beginning, but if you're not offended by that, it's a nice, quick little escape. The author tells of her upbringing and ventures through marriage, in-laws and eventually parenthood. She tells it from the perspective of a "not so perfect" person, which makes it more real-life and just fun.

    15. I freely admit that I found this as a free Kindle download, and wasn't really expecting much.What I got was an outright hilarious look at one woman's life as wife and mother.Witty, sarcastic, laugh aloud funny this book has been one of my best finds of 2013 so far.If your sense of humor is twisted, evil and sometimes just downright sick, I recommend you read this book. You just won't stop laughing.

    16. This is a really terrific and quick read! I read this book and the sequel one after the other, and enjoyed the hilarity of both. I didn’t always agree with some of the author’s parenting choices, and definitely not with the constant state of inebriation, but there were a ton of things that made me laugh loudly because, as mom of a six-year-old, I could identify and nod my head in agreement. I’m looking forward to reading book three!

    17. I loved it. It was so well written and FUNNY. No, Amanda is not perfect. She's not a good pet owner. So she does not have any pets anymore. She's smart. She knows she's not Michael Vick and she's not Martha Stewart either.I love her style of writing. It's smart, sassy and irreverent. It was like reading a really close friend's diary. lol

    18. Very funny! This author reminds me of one of my favorite funny authors - Celia Rivenbark. A person raising young children right now would especially enjoy this but even though my son is grown I could still relate. Very few books make me laugh out loud but this one did! If you want a quick read and some comic relief, this is your ticket!

    19. Fun read. I think our kids are around the same age so the reference to some cartoons I could relate. Lots of funny story's about in laws, raising kids and life. Stories you would rather bury deep down and never let out!

    20. This is by far one of the BEST books I have come across. These short stories will leave you giggling and wanting more, MUCH more. And AK Turner gives you more The cost for this book was nowhere near the value I got from reading it! Thank You AK Turner!!! ♥

    21. I don't have children but I was still able to appreciate this tasty little tidbit about motherhood. It was the crass humorI love crass humor - and sarcasm. Mixed with a little booze and it's the perfect summer read. I look forward to the flask, Ms. Turner.

    22. I felt like the author had ADHD. I felt like she never finished a story and I was left to go back and make sure I didn't skip a page or two. (I never did) Her parenting stories are funny and I could totally relate but the skipping from story to the next really took a lot out of it for me

    23. Hilarious. As the parent of a toddler, I don't know if there was anything in this book that wasn't an accurate depiction of parenthood.

    24. Hilarious! Laugh out loud funny book. She writes with the wit and sense of humor I truly enjoy. Can't wait to read "Mommy Had A Little Flask"!!

    25. this book is hilarious. I loved it. I strongly suggest you not try to read this if your husband is sleepingyou will wake him up with all the laughing.

    26. Funny! Laugh out loud funny. And I don't even have a child nor any plans for one. It's uncensored but it's everyday life (from what I hear) with small kids in the house.

    27. A fantastic read! Laughed until I couldn't read the text, dried my eyes then laughed some more! Thanks for sharing such great life moments.

    28. Why am I reading about someone else's rambles and thoughts??? This was disappointing. Mildly funny in some moments but not worth the time it took to read it. There was no value and little entertainment in going on this random journey that wasn't really a journey. Next.

    29. I have read a fair number of humorous parenting books, from trite, sitcom-style books, to mildly amusing. None of them -- NONE -- even approach the hilarity of this book. Several times, I laughed heartily, and once (the scene with the men on the beach in Mexico) I had to put the book down, I was laughing so hard! The beginning of the book was a little hard to get into, but once the children arrived, the fun really began. This is a mom I could be friends with; she focuses on the important stuff a [...]
