Hey Ladies!: The Story of 8 Best Friends, 1 Year, and Way, Way Too Many Emails

Hey Ladies!: The Story of 8 Best Friends, 1 Year, and Way, Way Too Many Emails

Based on the column of the same name that appeared in The Toast, Hey Ladies! is a laugh-out-loud read that follows a fictitious group of eight 20-and-30-something female friends for one year of holidays, summer house rentals, dates, brunches, breakups, and, of course, the planning of a disastrous wedding. This instantly relatable story is told entirely through emails, texts, DMs, and every other form of communication known to man.

The women in the book are stand-ins for annoying friends that we all have. There’s Nicole, who’s always broke and tries to pay for things in Forever21 gift cards. There’s Katie, the self-important budding journalist, who thinks a retweet and a byline are the same thing. And there’s Jen, the DIY suburban bride-to-be. With a perfectly pitched sardonic tone, Hey Ladies! will have you cringing and laughing as you recognize your own friends, and even yourself.

    Here's the thing: I hated this book, I thought it was obnoxious and insufferable, and hated my life while I read it. However, damn, I couldn't stop reading it. This book is the definition of a train w...

    Listen, did I hate something about every single one of these women, except Gracie, who is me, and therefore perfect? Yes. They’re all terrible people who you care about in the way you care about you...

    This is the Girls of fiction. I hate skimmed it. What could have been a funny exploration of modern female friendship was just an unending list of female caricatures. Not one character in this book wa...

    Listen. Is this high literature? NOPE. Did I hate every single one of these characters at one point or another? YUP. (Except maybe Gracie. Also I might be her, down to the very last page. #owningit.) ...

    If this had been written by men, it would be considered a hate crime. It certainly was not what I was expecting from anyone associated with The Toast.I love a good satire, but not one that just perpet...

    Reading this book was like watching a marathon of Real Housewives: you can do it compulsively, but you sort of feel icky about yourself during and after the whole debacle. The book was easy to finish ...

    Every time I read a espitolary style book I always think about how fun it is and how I wish there were more novels written in this style. I think part of the appeal for me is that I feel like I’m ge...

    I’m so glad I didn’t spend a penny on this book and was able to skim throughout it pretty quick @ a bookstore. #sorrynotsorryThis maybe the most unnecessary, obnoxious book I came across, and defi...

  • Elise Fegler

    The only redeeming part of the book was that there were some parts of NYC I recognized. Otherwise the characters were horrendous, the friendships were nothing but toxic, and I didn’t laugh once....

  • Emily

    This is one of the funniest and most cringe-inducing things I’ve read, maybe ever. It is utterly ridiculous and 100% based in reality. I’m going to start gifting it immediately......
