We Should Hang Out Sometime: Embarrassingly, a true story

  • TAG : We Should Hang Out Sometime: Embarrassingly, a true story
  • Since I've been a huge fan of Josh Sundquist on YouTube for quite a while, when I found out that copies of We Should Hang Out Sometime would be at BEA, I was SUPER FREAKING EXCITED. Like none of my blogger friends knew who he was, but I couldn't help but shout that I NEEDED THIS BOOK IN MY LIFE. And I was right - this book was freaking delightful and just as clever and amusing as his videos. I absolutely love his voice, his method of storytelling, and that translated to print perfectly

    At times hilarious, at times deep, We Should Hang Out Sometime is a book that spoke to me on many levels. It brought back memories of past mistakes and things left unsaid, a lingering question that consumes us human beings at times: how would my life be different had I acted like that instead?

  • I really enjoyed We Should Hang Out Sometime. I was really surprised by how much I liked it. It's so well written and just a lot of fun. I think one of the reasons I liked it so much was I could relate to Josh in a lot of ways. I was also homeschooled and Josh's observations of homeschooling had me rolling with laughter.

    Paralympian, Bestselling author, and YouTube personality, Josh Sundquist, joins Rhett & Link this week to discuss how his battle with cancer at age nine and subsequent loss of his leg has impacted the way he lives his life, the importance he places on traveling around the world as a motivational speaker, the deeper meaning behind his new book “We Should Hang Out Sometime,” and why his unique halloween costumes have “won the Internet.”

    Humans, I really have to stop declaring that I KNOW that I'm going to love a book because I've been striking out lately. I KNEW that We Should Hang Out Sometime would be awesome and hilarious but instead it was one dimensional and repetitive. I read the synopsis of this book a few months ago and I was SOLD, it was gonna be like that Adam Brody movie Some Girl(s) but this book wasn't for me. We meet Josh I think in the eighth grade and I get it, eighth graders are weird and scared of rejection, but then that's how he was at 14, then 16, then 17, throw in college, and he is still this way in his late twenties. WHAT? That doesn't sound like any change to me, oh wait, there wasn't. It was the exact same story over and over again, and none of it made sense! I just, this book wasn't for me.  The main problem I had with this book was that his entire goal in life was to have a girlfriend; he even said that he wanted to kiss any willing girl. HAVE BETTER GOALS! I get that this book was about his lack of girlfriends but I wish that we could have focused on anything else.  I did like that he drew a lot of graphs and charts to help illustrate his point and I like the cover. It wrapped up nice enough, I guess, though by the end I didn't care at all.  Listen, I know that people really like this and I don't want to deter others, this just wasn't a book for me.  

    Readers will be impressed by Josh's humor, vulnerability, and some of the universal truths he sums up in WE SHOULD HANG OUT SOMETIME. They'll relate to his comments about how awkward first kisses always are, or how, in middle school at least, "not having to actually interact with my new girlfriend definitely made the having-a-girlfriend part way easier."

We Should Hang Out Sometime: Embarrassingly, a True Story

Josh Sundquist writes about his experiences trying to find a girlfriend (and find himself) in his memoir We Should Hang Out Sometime. The results are funny, awkward, sweet and relatable.
