Book Review: If You Ask Me by Betty White

Before I even get into this review, I feel the need to point out that Betty White wrote other books before writing If You Ask Me - including Betty White in Person and Here We Go Again. I personally didn't know that when I picked this one up (and no, I haven't read them yet) - but I feel like any small disappointment I felt over this book would have likely been tempered even more had I known about her prior works (and read them, of course).


To be honest, I don't have all that much to say about this book. It's a very quick, light read. I'm a bit surprised at the people who gave it lower-than-average or even outright bad reviews because it "wasn't all that funny". I thought it was cute, even a bit quirky, and to me that's always how Betty White has expressed herself - that's why she's funny. If You Ask Me has it's amusing moments, and it's also quite heartfelt, if a bit brief. 3.5/5 stars.
