    1. I won this book on and I'm so glad I did, it was hilarious and couldn't have arrived at a better time.It's the story of David who decided to take a series of trips with his mom (who he describes as a mix of Bea Arthur and Karen Walker from Will and Grace). They are a very close, very funny family.The book was so funny that I couldn't put it find and finished it in one day.I seriously hope that the author writes about the next trip he takes with his mom !

    2. I highly recommend this book by this brilliant new author. Laughter ensues on every page as David and his Mother travel the globe on wild adventures!

    3. this was a good bookparts had me laughing out loudi laughed until i cried a partsvery well written i loved it itthanks for letting me read and review for you

    4. Potential tags for this book: Sarcastic; comfortable; relationships; Xanax and Chardonnay.This book wouldn't normally be on my radar, but after a couple chapters I started to plow through it and enjoyed the journey. David suffers anxiety and an emotional colon, which is comical to see in print. Those with anxiety will quickly gravitate toward the character. As David fears he is dying of cancer, he decides to take his mother on some good-bye vacations around the world. Although he makes it throug [...]

    5. I love this family and book. When this book ended I was sad because I wanted more adventures, stories and laughter. I normally do not laugh when I read books, I might chuckle, smile, etc. but not a full out laugh. Well this book if you are looking to laugh is it. In some scenes I laughed so loud and hard I had tears in my eyes. I had family and strangers ask me what I was reading because I was laughing at the library, Panera's and everywhere else I was reading.Wanderlush is a quick read that is [...]

    6. This book is so funny that I almost spit out my Orgy Juice! When David, a self-proclaimed anxiety-ridden introvert, convinces himself he's dying of cancer, he invites his delightfully unpredictable, Xanax-popping, chardonnay-swilling mother on a series of international good-bye vacations. By doing so, he unwittingly opens a Pandora's Box of hilarious and humiliating events that will test just how far they are willing to go to get a laugh.Wanderlush brought back lots of happy memories of vacation [...]

    7. Wanderlush is a quick read but a fun one. I think that David and his mom would be an absolute blast to travel with, in some respects. Then absolute nightmares in others.but in the best way. The obsession with chardonnay cracked me up. The dynamics of the family are just so freakin' funny that I can't help but laugh. And I so rarely laugh at books! I can't decide if I think the stories are true or not. I'm inclined to believe that they're all real, but with the author's emotional colon I can't sa [...]

    8. David Robert believes he's dying of (ready?) ass cancer so he proposes going on a trip to random spots throughout Europe, in a last minute bonding exercise with his spitfire mom. I can't tell you how disappointing that this is only 187 pages. It is absolutely hysterical. I haven't laughed this hard at a book in a long, long time. I truly love it and will recommend it to anyone I know who has a good sense of humor, loves travel, and loves unorthodox situations. For no matter how David and his par [...]

    9. I expected Wanderlush to provide a compelling, enjoyable ride, and author David Robert did not disappoint my expectations. His story of adventures with his mother was not only frequently laugh-out-loud funny, it was personally relatable for me in a number of ways. I admire Robert's brave exposure of both his mother's and his own neuroses. These qualities made them both more endearing as characters, and because they were interesting, flawed, three-dimensional people, I became much more invested i [...]

    10. I won this book in a giveaway. When I read the first sentence of the description- specifically the words "a self-proclaimed anxiety-ridden introvert", I knew I had to enter the contest because those words are a description of myself. I was very excited to find out that I actually won a copy. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and all the crazy antics that went on. My recommendation is to not read this book in a public place because you will get funny looks when you burst out laughing. His emotional [...]

    11. Wanderlush is a free FirstReads advance reader copy of an autographed paperback book that I began reading in late October to avoid playing videogames. So, thanks, Wanderlush!This book is a fun mom-and-adult-kids travelogue where everyone has a witty thing to say, no matter the occasion. I had an okay time reading it, but unending stream of wit and humorous self-effacing jabs kinda wore at me after a while.

    12. Love, love, love the author's humor.I recommend this book a 5 star. While patiently waiting in a Doctor's office reading this book, time flew by and I couldn't stop myself from laughing. I am sure the other patients sitting across from me thought l was crazy. Without a doubt, recommend this book as a , "Must Read and Share book"Can't wait for his next book to be published.

    13. I won this book through a first-reads giveaway. I thought it was really cute and funny. You can tell how much the author loves his family, even though they cut up and give each other such a hard time. The book was humorous, although sometimes I felt like I really "had to be there" to fully get it. Still glad I was given the opportunity to read this book and will pass it along to other friends looking for a light, funny read. :)

    14. I knew from the first page(when I saw an explicit) that I loved the book. It was real, raw, and unfiltered. The author's honesty really allowed me to engage with the book and I didn't want to put it down. Great read for when you want a laugh, need a pick-me-up, or a reminder that you're not the only one with a crazy family!

    15. I won my copy thru LibraryThing and thought it was really cute. I adored the author's sense of humor and chuckled out loud while reading this book. My only problem with it that it was too short and I wanted more. I would love to read more by this author and would recommend this book to anybody who wants to read a quaint pick-me up adventure.

    16. This book was well written and I found it quite interesting. Though it wasn't my favorite book and it wasn't something I just had to keep on reading, it was good. I have to wonder if it is based on a story, since the main character shared his name with the author.

    17. Fizzy and fun, reading Wanderlush is like attending a dinner party with a great conversationalist who tells one hilarious story after another. Roberts is a gifted writer whose debut promises more to come. Highly recommended.

    18. hilarious! Couldn't put this book down! I loved the way it was written. Such a wonderful story of the love in a crazy family that accepts each other for what and who they are.

    19. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. David and his Mom were hilarious. I really hope he decides to right that second book he was hinting about in the afterward.

    20. This is a very enjoyable book. Quite funny and thought provoking. I would absolutely love to travel with these people. Really hope that David will soon have another book out.
