My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book I’ve read by Lucy Woodhull—the first was her 2016 release, 667 Ways to F*ck Up My Life.

Super 40 is a gem that celebrates womanhood in all forms while hooking us with Woodhull’s amazing sense of humor.

7. meets a wonderful guy
8. who she can’t fall for
9. because she’s lying
10. and this obviously won’t end well
