The Ice Cream Theory by Steff Deschenes

The Ice Cream TheoryThe Ice Cream Theory by Steff Deschenes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Ice Cream Theory is not only about ice cream! It's also filled with anecdotes about life, love, friendship, family, dating & well...I could go on! If you're looking for something not only interesting, but entertaining to read, look no further!

Though I typically do not read these types of genres of books I thoroughly enjoyed this one! Not only is it about ice cream & let's face it....who doesn't love ice cream!? I found that not only could I relate to most of the stories in between each ice cream theory, but they were very entertaining as well!

The author Steff Deschenes did a great job explaining each of her theories relating people to ice cream & also telling her stories of life & how she came about coming up with each theory.

This book is a nice, light read that is perfect to curl up on the couch with while being entertained & even laughing along the way! You don't have to be an ice cream lover to enjoy this book!

Dont Miss the Gomez Brithday Event!

"No Hope for Gomez!" Birthday Party. Win kindles, iPods, and get free books!

I'm am helping spread the word about the Huge Gomez Birthday Event! If you want a chance to win some cool stuff (& who doesn't!?) then keep on reading below to find out all the details on how & where to enter!

“It's the age-old tale:
     Boy meets girl.
     Boy stalks girl.
     Girl already has a stalker.
     Boy becomes her stalker-stalker.”

It's hard to believe, but it's been a year since I handed in the final proofs for my weird little book ‘No Hope for Gomez!’ To celebrate this, and the fact that it just became a finalist in 2010's Best Book Awards, I decided to throw an international party. As I’ve had a debilitating fear of throwing parties and no-one showing up since early childhood, I’d be more than delighted if you’d come!

Of course, with every cool, international party comes a gift bag. Here's just some of the stuff attendants will get:

  • ‘Unspent Time’ exclusive short story collection
  • No Hope for Gomez: The Lost Chapters
  • Making of Gomez: behind the scenes eBook
  • Signed hi-res poster + bookplate

(These are all exclusive items and will not be available again.)

Additionally, several lucky attendants will win a Kindle or an iPod!

Oh yeah, you can bring as many friends as you like, just don't bring your crazy uncle who drinks too much and then tries to get me to go to the attic with him to see something wonderful. I've fallen for that before and I don't mind telling you, I came away very disappointed!
