IMPRESSION:

Mr. Humblebrag is a super witty parody book that describes this extravagant life that Mr. Humblebrag shares with his wife Little Miss Porn Star. He brags about all of these unrealistic achievements and assumes that his boasting is okay as long as he has a little humility about it. The validation he gets is satisfying to him because nobody understands his sarcasm.

 For example, Mr. Humblebrag goes on a tropical cruise vacation, but posts to social media, "Leave it to me to twist my ankle doing the limbo, now I have to stay off my feet for a week!" while posting a photo of him and his wife sipping papaya coladas in the pool.   Somebody posted they could relate.  This makes Mr. Humblebrag feel humbled.

This parody book is for adults, although you could teach children a thing or two about how society hates and reacts to these types of people!  I personally got a good chuckle out of this light hearted read. The illustrations by Dylan Klymenko were cute too. 

The author has other books of this style in a series and I cannot wait to collect them all. These would make a great stocking stuffer or birthday gift for people who share a love for sarcasm and light humor.

Oh and one more thing, if you love hashtags.. #MrHumblebrag #blessed #grateful #poor, lol.. then this is definitely for you! ;)
