Review: Women Know Everything!

User Review  - Ellie Cambron - Goodreads

I can flip through this book on any occasion to suit my emotions. I love the vast collection of these qupis and quotes. I did not, however, like that many of the quotes contradicted each other. That was abit inconsistent. But overall, i like having it as a resource for wise quotes! Read full review

Since I read this cover to cover, the conflicting opinions were a little disorienting, lol. And naturally there were a lot of statements I didn't agree with, but it's a great collection. My copy is very dog-eared. Read full review
