I don't know what it is about Tori Spelling but I really enjoy reading her books. Although sometimes a little out of touch with reality she seems like a down to earth person and a good parent. I also like how she admits she really doesn't know that many other celebrities and often is just as awed as the general public when meeting them. I look forward to her next instalment.

This is a lovely book by Tori Spelling. She talks about how her family are coping with life during the fifth and sixth season of Tori and Dean. The book is written in a chatty manner like (girlfriend to girlfriend) and a very easy read. Reading about her trials and tribulations in the book, the book feels in places like the book of Job meets The singing detective. It has interesting but in places a bit graphic hospital scenes. She manages to make having a bed rest seem fun and I think the book can be uplifting to someone who has a longer stay in hospital. What I love the most of all her book, is the ideas she gives for holding children's parties and craft session alike. The books have served as a big inspiration for my own children's parties. What is also enthralling is the positive spirit in the book, and I really like the way, she is showing her reasoning for taking her various decisions. The books makes you root for Tori and the problem she is facing, and you feel happy when she is able to successfully come through the various difficulties. She writes about family life in a very engaging manner and the book can also serve as a useful guide for anyone with small children.

I would warmly recommend this book, an enjoyable and easy read, to be there among the best of Tori's books.

Dean needs to get a J. O. B. great read but frustrating 26 Oct. 2013
By Parks Family - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very quick and easy read. What I like about Tori's books is that she really tells it like it is but shes in total denial. Her family moves several times as they can't afford their current house(s). Then then when they decide they can't afford a Christmas vacation....one comment from her children on Christmas Day about the lack of snow and she's desperately looking for a holiday condo in Tahoe. When she doesn't like the 3 bedroom condo she has rented cause you can't ski from the front door to the slope...she's uprooting the family mid vacation and moving into the HYATT. Even though they have NO money. Ridiculous.
AND can someone tell me what does Dean do for living apart from moving from hobby to hobby??? I mean if he's at home taking care of kids while Tori works power to him. BUT throughout the book Tori talks about the baby nurse, the part time nanny, the full time nanny and the live in housekeeper....so what's Dean doing? Get a paying job and help out.
Though Tori admits her issues with money she does nothing about it. I liked the book but I wanted to shake some sense into her.

A Very Honest Book 22 Feb. 2014
By DNI - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed all of Tori Spelling's books, she has a great sense of humor and doesn't take herself too seriously. This was probably the most honest of her books, dealing with a very serious and scary time in her life. She doesn't spare any details when talking about the struggles she went through in her last pregnancy and the health risks she endured. It's a very interesting story about what can happen to your body when you get pregnant again 1 month after giving birth. It's a miracle her baby Finn survived and that she made it through that pregnancy. She is a fighter and a strong woman. She also talks a lot about her constant desire to move homes and their struggles to live within their means when she never had to worry about such a thing her entire life. Reading this book now, knowing she is going through a real cheating scandal with her husband Dean made the story more sad, but also a view behind the curtain to see what might have lead him to make such selfish & poor decisions cheating on Tori. Her life never seems to slow down. Her mind is ALWAYS on what her next job will be, how to do it and do it best. Plus be a mom with dangerous pregnancy complications on top of that. I got the impression that although she loves Dean dearly, she may have unknowingly pushed her husband aside for her work and her kids. She is the bread winner of the family, so you can't blame her for go-go-going all the time, but she needs to find some balance & learn to actually stop when she has a free moment & not decide to move again or think or another new project.

This is an enjoyable book and as a reader, I appreciate her humor & her honesty.

Such an honest and funny read 27 Nov. 2013
By David F. Fuchs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This girl is so underrated. People can diss Tori all they want, but the truth is... She is just a very funny girl.
Some network needs to give her a sitcom. The story about the nice old couple had me laughing out loud.
Kudos to her for being so completely honest.

Not as good as the others 27 Jan. 2014
By Toni McNinch - Published on Amazon.com

She seemed so superficial in this book. She had a terrible pregnancy and went through quite an ordeal but the way she talked about things just didn't compare to the Tori from her previous books.

Spelling's sTORI ~ a tool to make you appreciate that you don't live in a zoo & relocate every few months 23 Sept. 2014
By CM Albert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Here's the thing. If you "like" Tori, or just like being voyeuristic and watching her life unfold, you will like this book -- even though it did not deliver nearly as well as her first few books did. As always, the cover is gorgeous, as are the pictures inside. They are fun to look at and feel like you get a little "peek" into her life (or, the peek she chooses to share). If you aren't a fan of Tori, don't bother with this book. I don't understand people who buy books and then rip them all to shreds. Surely, if you feel that way, you aren't really a Tori "fan." For me, she's a fascinating woman, who on one hand is just like the rest of us when it comes to her kids, and on the other, is this enigma you can't look away from. I admire her moxie and genius-ness when it comes to running her business and brand. Despite her inability to stop spending and making poor real estate decisions (which she goes into details about in this book), she is actually a smart lady. She plays dumb sometimes. She's not.

That said, while reading this book, I physically felt sick to my stomach with the real estate decisions she made, the money she lost hand over fist, and the debacle she found herself in with her home. She is much more of a risk taker than I am, and I physically wanted to shake her and tell her that a new house isn't going to make her happy. She's looking in the wrong places for the right things we all want in our lives. And I think all of this became evident in the wake of the news that broke after this book was published, around the instability of her marriage.

But, at the end of the day, her books are meant to be fun and funny, light reading, a little juicy and revealing (this wasn't as much on that side, but you still feel like you're hearing "insider" secrets), and relatable--especially for mothers and women.

So, was this a ground breaking book? No. Was it good? Yeah, it was all right. It was exactly what it promises to be: a quick bubblegum read that takes you along a small part of the journey Tori and her family have taken.

Now, what I'm really excited about is the book that I hope comes out next! And I hope she can reach a little deeper for that one, and be as truthful as possible. Because at the end of the day, that's why we read Tori's books time and again. Because we feel like we "get" her and "know" her on some level, and we're rooting for her to come out okay in the end.
