Summary: I'm not one to sit around and wait for something to happen. I wanted a man. My Dating Profile Writing this book became an obsession with me. I want you to think, feel, eat, sleep and live the dating experiences I had over the course of a year. As you meet Sponge Tom, "Skip-To-My-Lou" Stew and Lame Joke Jim, I hope you recognize my determination to maintain my self respect and high standards in a relationship as well as the ability to find humor in any situation. The men I dated are all nice enough guys, I just took the opportunity to make light of their idiosyncrasies and things that happened in my relationships with them. With the help of my "advisory committee" I learn that physical appearance goes hand in hand with what's inside. Join me as I learn the ins and outs of online dating.  (Taken from Goodreads)

Thoughts: I was looking for a light and funny read and when I was flicking through my adobe digital editions I started reading What Was I Thinking and didn’t stop.  It was really light and entertaining and I guess it was really good because it wasn’t my usual kind of book.

I don’t tend to read much in the way of non-fiction these days and I was starting to feel a little bored with what I have been reading lately so What Was I Thinking was a really good refreshing read and it made me think I should be reading a bit more non-fiction because it was definitely enjoyable.

While I didn’t get as many laughs out of What Was I Thinking as I thought I would, I still cracked a smile here and there.  It was just interesting to read about someone else’s experiences with dating, especially when they had some funny little quirks about them.

If you’re looking for a fun, light afternoon read then I think that What Was I Thinking by Annie Earley is definitely a good choice of book.  I think it would especially make for a good beach read too!
