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.

  • Abby Lance

    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...

  • Ashley

    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...

  • Ngiste

    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...

  • Lindsey Hresko

    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 ...

  • Mary

    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.) ...

  • Brooke Nuzie

    I almost feel weird giving this book 4 stars because it’s not a “good” book. I read it in about 3 hours, and it was entertaining. I hated actually every character (except Gracie and probably Mor...

  • 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......

  • Mandy

    Quick read with a lot of under-delivered potential. Few of the characters seemed like real people and yet they also weren’t quite over the top comic enough to satisfy. There are a few great zingers ...

  • Alison

    Like another reviewer, I stayed up way too late so I could finish this book. I was a huge fan of the Hey Ladies column at The Toast, and the book is amazing. It's absolutely hilarious, and it builds o...

    Je veux effacer ce livre de ma mémoire pour pouvoir avoir le plaisir de le relire et le redécouvrir ad vitam aeternam. J’ai tellement ri et j’ai tellement eu envie d’enfoncer la tête d’Ali ...
