Jan 19, Arianne The Bookworm on the Loose rated it really liked it. While the first few chapters discussed protagonist Emily’s organized life and love affair in general, I couldn’t help but wince when her sshole of a boyfriend had the nerve to break up with her.
He was one pathetic loser who didn’t realize Emily’s worth. But then, I also found myself smiling and sometimes rolling my eyes at Emily Keane because she is sooo naive and ignorant. It seemed like she’s so afraid of ch definitely had tons and tons of laughs while reading this ebook. It seemed like she’s so afraid of change and get out of her comfort zone. Especially after she resigned from her job. Her way of thinking kind of reminded me of myself some 10 years ago when I first had a job and I had my life organized.
Then when one unexpected event happened, I was scared to move on. But eventually, i embraced change. And so did Emily, although reluctantly. Thanks to a weird organ broker-slash-surgeon, Emily postponed her attempted suicide for a year in exchange of organ donation. After meeting the doctor and was given 1million dollars as early payment for her vitals, Emily made a bucket list.
And what a list it was! So far, she got a pet, a German Shepherd, actually, which was named Ass-Wipe. Wait till you see what it does!
And then she got a flaming skull tattoo, got drunk and learned how to country dance and even almost went on skinny-dipping! What else were on her list? To go to a tropical island, watch the bulls in Pamplona and meet Woody Allen. Would she be able to do that in 1 year? And what if she decided to back out from her contract?

Along the way, Emily adopts a neurotic dog that even confounds a dog whisperer, sells her organs to a madman, falls in love with a gay man, and treats a biker bar to a new round of tats. As is her wont, Ford mixes tons of humor into unpredictable situations to create a unique and rather unforgettable story.

Carpe DiEmily is like Eat, Pray, Love… but with a large dose of hilarious twists and turns, and a few witty unsolicited insights from Woody Allen. What I love most about Emily Keane is how she has ongoing issue with her hair, which is sometimes as messed up as her life is turning out to be. I could relate to that because I have a love-hate relationship with my hair sometimes.
I knew from the start that her story would be funny and ridiculous because of a somewhat unbelievable plot. What on ear Carpe DiEmily is like Eat, Pray, Love… but with a large dose of hilarious twists and turns, and a few witty unsolicited insights from Woody Allen. What on earth is she thinking, signing a contract Emily may be an ordinary, boring, and organized person but she has a good heart. And why that sometimes, terrible things happen to a good person? Because one day, we know that she will redeem herself… but not before completing her outrageous set of a bucket list.

This had me laughing all the way through it. I could really relate to Emily and her control issues. I have them too. As well as her fear to try new things. I could also relate to her depression when her life turned to crap and she felt she had nothing to offer the world. As I read, I found myself making a bucket list of my own.
