    I feel it s appropriate to say that I texted one of my friends while reading, I am legit holding back tears reading this book at work because a girl s best friend died and I can t process the idea of you being dead She is a person I text when I get home There are so many of her and I am so incredibly lucky to have all of these women in my life who support me and love me and get me and let me tell them in so many ways, Let s keep talking Would really recommend to anyone who has ever loved a lady [...]

    Perfect Galentine s Day reading This book makes you want to grab your gal gang and hug them hard Female friendship is a force and I don t know where I d be without the ladies in my life I love how this book celebrates everything that female friendship is and the love we have for one another As Keira Knightley put it, Female friendships are fucking extraordinary.


    Betsy Kipnis

    Ugh This book was a complete waste of time The author is self indulgent and weaves her fantastic state of friendship affairs in and out of historic discusssion of the evolution of feminine friendship as represented on television I read to avoid television and reading this book is like watching all the television shows I ve avoided sans Sex In The City The author s replay way too much of the episodes and as a premise this hardly reads as a sociological analysis but as a bunch of chicks bonding o [...]

    An examination of the importance of female friendship, Text Me When You Get Home is sure to inspire a reflection about the role of female friendship in your life Part memoir and part social history, Schaefer s stories and illustrations show the many ways female friendship has evolved over the years Text me when you get home is a statement women use for many reasons It s to make sure our friend is safe or because we want an update on the cute guy they met at the bar or because we simply don t wan [...]


    Vanessa (splitreads)

    A mix of memoir Schaefer s personal friendships as well as those of friends she knows , some discussions about recent friendships in pop culture Parks Rec, Insecure, Broad City, Big Little Lies , and some history biology on female friendships It was a charming book that related the importance of female friendships and made me think of my own friendships There is nothing mind blowing here though, but the audiobook was a nice listen.


    Stacey Kimmel

    I wanted to like this book, but I was hoping for something well researched and thoughtful Instead I found it repetitive and sophomoric I returned after the second chapter, which focused on, of all things, the movie Beaches I would not have thought this movie worthy of than a paragraph, but she spends a CHAPTER on it, recounting the plot, how it differs from the book, and actor actress reminiscences of its making She claims that there are no movies about female friendship, and no literature on f [...]

    Rarely in recent memory have I had such strong feelings about a book, both positive and negative While reading, I kept texting a friend of mine to tell her about the various anecdotes and stories laid out in this book, sometimes in frustration, and sometimes in joy If nothing else, this book is compelling.The author, Kayleen Schaefer, does an excellent job of weaving her own memories and stories of her friends in with an exploration of female friendship in the 20th century although shoehorned in [...]

    The women I love are like a life raft I didn t know I was looking for before I got on it Text Me When You Get HomeThis Book Y all I highlighted so many passages in this book that are relevant I rarely read non fiction, I rarely choose to read memoirs I read the synopsis for this one on and basically sprinted figuratively, of course over to Dutton to request a copy In a nutshell Text Me When You Get Home The Evolution and Triumph of Modern Female Friendship by Kayleen Schaefer is about the evolut [...]

    Pretty excellent meditation on female friendships and how they should be just as important as marriages and children and cats I especially liked the early chapters that talked about being a young woman in high school and college and how a lot of us are taught that our female friends are just stand ins while we wait for marriage Oh holy hell, I was guilty of this This book doesn t aim to bash marriage or say that friendships should replace it if marriage is your jam , but it says that women are a [...]


    Bri (girlwithabookblog.com)

    Text Me When You Get Home s title is based off of how lady friends will often end an in person hang out by telling each other to text me when you get home, like a subtle I love you and acknowledgment of the potential for danger that lurks beneath any women s experience moving from one place to another As someone who does this regularly with my friends, I LOVED the premise of this book anecdote I also paid attention to how my friends reacted to me saying this at the conclusion of our hangs while [...]

    Kayleen Schaefer has written an interesting and heartfelt analysis of female friendships and its significance She uses both real life and fictional accounts to demonstrate her points, which include the judgments passed on female friendships, as well as the growing trend of women choosing to rely mainly on friends instead of husbands spouses The stories make you feel good and remind you of the positive ways that women exist without men Unfortunately, the analysis could have been a bit deeper at t [...]

    Kayleen Schaefer never considered herself a girly girl As a child and pre teen, she felt largely excluded from other girls her age As she reached adolescence, Kayleen had a bit luck developing female friendships, but began to see them as little than way stations and stop gaps en route to her next boyfriend This feeling continued for Kayleen through college, prompting her to leave her sorority for a guy she was currently seeing Even as a young adult writer and journalist, Kayleen distrusted her [...]

    I got this galley over the weekend, finished it within the day, and then immediately sent I LOVE YOU texts to all of my best friends Like, think of your closest girlfriends The ones that immediately pop into mind, the ones that have been with your through everything, the ones that just thinking of them makes you feel an overwhelming wave of love This book is 298 straight pages of that exact amazing feeling It was a day of reading and thinking about the best people in my life the women who have e [...]

    This book is just a buzzfeed article about 20 reasons Your Galentine s Day Gal is More than Your BFF She s Your LITERAL SOUL MATE no homo But instead of Galentine s Day GIFs the author writes things like Galentine s Day was introduced to the world by Leslie Knope, a fictional midlevel bureaucrat in an Indiana parks and recreation department on the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation The real question this book shaped listicle poses is who, or WHAT, wrote it Was it written by a real human person who [...]

    01 18 2018Relatively fun read, but lacking in direction RTC.02 06 2018 This review can also be found on my blog I was stoked when I saw this book on NetGalley, a feminist book about how important female friendships are It was right up my alley Unfortunately, I ended up being somewhat disappointed by the content Overall, the book is well written and makes a lot of important points But these points are surrounded by a meandering narrative that ultimately seemed without purpose.This is because wome [...]


    Courtney Hurley

    So disclaimer I am not a girl with one nor many super strong female friendship bonds So my review may be a little jaded perhaps BUT if you re a girl who fucking LOVES friendship girlfriends being obsessed w your BFF, you WILL enjoy this book.I really enjoyed most of it, I appreciated the cultural references and background on lots of friendships depicted in pop culture Except no mention of The First Wive s Club Hello, Friendship goals at it s mid 90s best However my biggest fear going into this b [...]

    This was a lovely, warm book, and I saw so much of myself and my friend group in these pages As I get older and remain steadfastly and enjoyably single, it s a relief to read about other women who also aren t focused on romantic relationships, deciding instead to cultivate friendships to give them support and joy Schaefer also touches on how dangerous it is to put all your emotional needs on one person, as well as how that s mostly a modern development One that hopefully we as a culture are in t [...]

    Inspired by a phrase that many women leave one another with after a night out, or in, Kayleen Schaefer s new book Text Me When You Get Home is a veritable catalogue of female friendships in movies and television of the last 30 years The themes from media are paired with many anecdotes from Schaefer s life as well as those of women she interviewed including her mother, a mean girl from her high school days, and Judy Blume What it doesn t appear to be is a book that studies the Evolution and Trium [...]


    Marileekay

    I very much enjoyed listening to this book It wove research, interviews, pop culture, and personal experience into a very compelling argument for the importance of female friendships I found it life giving and challenging Many of the stories or topics provoked reflection, such as the female friendships modeled in my mother s life, the changing dynamics in friendships as an adolescent, and the blessing of many exceptional women in my journey I definitely recommend it My only critique was that, wh [...]


    Desiree

    This was one of those books that I dipped in and out of I read a chapter here and there, when I finished a main read and had a spare minute Every time I picked it up though, it gave me warm, fuzzy feelings about my lady friends I found myself messaging them almost every time I was reading it to tell them how grateful I am for their friendship I wouldn t say this book is revolutionary it s not an in depth sociological look at female friendship and it s emancipatory power although that would be re [...]


    Hanna

    4.5 s This book was so uplifting As someone who typically opts for dystopia or informative infuriating nonfiction, it was a great change of pace I loved learning about the historical contexts of female friendships It was super interesting to see how the significance of female friendships has altered throughout history due to different societal norms My only complaint is that it felt a bit heteronormative and didn t venture much into queer straight or queer queer friendships But other than that, [...]


    Emily

    I really wanted to like this, but it just did not work for me It combines elements of cultural criticism, psychology sociology, and memoir, but the balance is off too much memoir, not enough of everything else to make Schaefer s argument compelling Instead of a study of the evolution of female friendship in contemporary culture, it reads like one woman s struggle with and basically triumph over, so good on her internalized misogyny patriarchy I guess that could be an interesting story, but there [...]


    Georgia

    Reads like an oral history of female friendship in cultural history, with a lot of personal narrative Not a revolutionary read but comforting and affirming 4 stars because it invoked introspection in me.


    Emily

    I couldn t relate to the author s journey from trying to distance herself from most girls to being in several killer female friendships because my friends have been my whole world since I was tiny But while our journeys may not have been the same, this book was supremely relatable, insightful, and heartfelt The way Schaefer ties her own growth to historical and cultural views and portrayals of female friendship was both educational and moving I enjoyed this immensely.

    They are our advocates, who, no matter what, make us feel like we won t fail They are the people who will struggle with us and who will stay with us They are who we text when we get home This is an entire book about the power of female friendship There were moments where I was screaming, I DO THAT TOO Or okay, whew Thought we were the only ones And there were moments where I welled up thinking about certain friends and how vital they are to my life.My best friend is my soulmate above everyone el [...]

    Had higher hopes for this Celebrity gossip and shallow TV and movie reviews Tag Me on Instagram may have been a better title.


    Amanda Brill

    I really enjoyed reading this book and told everyone who stood next me longer than 5 minutes about this book Going into detail about how friendship between female friends have changed over the decades was thought provoking and incredibly interesting The Pros The way Kayleen Schaefer writes had just a nice flow and rhythm and I was deeper into the book than I thought on than one occasion I really enjoyed her own stories mingled in with the examples from women she interviewed, as it brought a per [...]


    Erin

    I feel I should add a disclaimer that I basically crammed this book It is due at the library and I am juggling a few other books, so I basically read this book in two days poortimemanagement sorryifthatimpactsmyreflectionsI do love the subject matter, as I do feel like platonic female friendship is often undervalued for the incredible gift that it is I feel like Schaefer was trying to tackle a lot and so there were many times she would lightly touch on a subject I would want her to dig into a li [...]


    Rebecca

    A very interesting exploration of the history of female friendships, and the different permutations in which they can show up and be experienced in the world This was very refreshing to read The author takes on the great task of validating the authenticity of female friendships, and acknowledging the need that many women find themselves having for these strong, supportive, nurturing, and invested non romantic relationships There were several voices incorporated into this novel as the author expl [...]
