    One thought on “The Best of Dear Coquette: Shady Advice From A Raging Bitch Who Has No Business Answering Any Of These Questions

    1. Krystin Rachel

      I discovered Dear Coquette online a couple of years ago and immediately fell in love. My husband got me this book for my birthday last year, and I've been digesting it small pieces at a time. It's far too dense, overwhelmed with issues and solutions, to be consumed like a regular novel. The totally anonymous Coquette is everything I admire. Her advice is everything I need to hear when I need to hear it, and everything I wish I could say to others or just know to say to myself. Sometimes I don't [...]

    2. Lindsay Seddon

      Sometimes you need a good kick up the arse, not someone who is going to tell you what you want to hear. "Coquette" more than fills this need. This is a self-help book (the first I have ever read or even been interested in), comprised of the best questions and answers from "Dear Coquette" and "CokeTalk", an anonymous (possibly famous) blogger living in LA. Coquette is frighteningly insightful - I'd be scared to ask a question and have her reveal the hidden parts of my soul in one snippy sentence. [...]

    3. Quentinloca

      Sharp. Direct. Funny. "Handle your shit" attitude that I appreciated. Instances where I realized that I too need to grow up and handle my shit a bit better. Additionally, an overriding theme of simply being a good person to yourself and others; don't be selfish, don't be cruel.

    4. Charissa Modeste

      I first came across this blog when I was about 20 and was shocked and disgusted by what I read. Then it became my favorite blog. Now I just re-read my favorite posts nodding in fervent agreement. The blog -to -book format here is kind of lazy. All of this content can be viewed on her website, there's little-to-no exclusive book content- so unless you just prefer a curated, book format you can head over to here website and read the entries there. But I guess this is really for her die hard fans a [...]

    5. Meghan

      I like reading these short answers to short advice questions on the Internet, but a whole book started to feel so blunt and overwhelming.

    6. Bri (girlwithabookblog.com)

      I picked up this book form of a long running advice column without being aware of the source material – it was on a display at my local library and I found the cover compelling (yep, judged the book by its cover!) so I snatched it up and dove in, enjoying the segmented chunks that allow you to quickly read when you had the time and easily pause whenever was necessary (aka a perfect type of reading when you’re balancing grad school and life).I definitely enjoyed the vibe of Dear Sugar's Tiny [...]

    7. Cass -Words on Paper

      I wish I had known about Dear Coquette years ago; if I had I would be a completely different person with different outlooks on life and other aspects thereof. No sugar coating, no fucks given, no-holding-back pure, raw advice straight from a woman who has seen a lot of the world. The Coquette--whoever she is--is either someone I would love to meet or someone I would never want to meet, which is a very big contradiction but it certainly makes sense to me since overly opinionated people intimidate [...]

    8. Gabrielle

      "I'm wrong all the damn time,"Coquette proclaims in the very last pages of the book.Not knowing of her website before picking up this collection, this was a sort of "initiation" for me into her deeply practical philosophies and tough-love style. Since I just went through the worst breakup I have yet to experience in my young life, the first half of the book seemed like a Godsend. I didn't care too much for the political and "point-of-life" answers toward the end, but I can say her frank ("frank" [...]

    9. Diana

      This is the third "advice column compilation" book I've read in the last couple of years, so I guess this is a thing now. Cheryl Strayed remains the gold standard, but I liked this one better than Heather Havrilevsky's book. Sure, all the profanity is a bit much and honestly, I feel like Coquette is trying a bit too hard to be the "cool girl" but on the whole she still has a lot of valuable advice to impart. She's definitely a straight shooter--I imagine many who write to her later regret their [...]

    10. Grace

      I want to go for a drink with this woman.Harsh but fair, this is advice the people asking need but don't necessarily want to hear.Sadly it tapers off a bit towards the end of the book but it is funny, heartfelt and has a great level of sarcasm and sass.

    11. Miss Ryoko

      I think I might be The Coquette. maybe I just black out when I post as her and I don't remember ;-)I wish I would have thought of this great idea to have an advice blog where I just answer questions honestly. I could be making tons of money right now.This book was great. I wasn't familiar with Coquette before I came across this book, but she's fantastic! I agreed with so much of the stuff she said - it was both hilarious and truthful. My favorite line of the whole book was the first line of her [...]

    12. Brian Palmer

      Apparently Coquette is an LA-based blogger/advice giver whom I had never heard of . But I picked this up, and enjoyed diving into it a little bit at a time. The advice is more on the Savage Love side of the spectrum than the Ann Landers (but the relationship questions seem dominated by heterosexual relationships, at least based on her responses). It's also tends to adopt a "take charge of your own self" attitude, briskly shaking the people writing in to communicate and take responsibility for ho [...]

    13. Natasha Chowdory

      This was absolutely BRILLIANT. Ad the type of thing that needs to be read over and over again. Some truly invaluable advice from - how you think of yourself (whatever you do, don't be mediocre) to her attitudes on cheating, affairs and sex. I think this is essential reading for everyone - especially for young adults. Her stuff on relationships was spot on as well - i.e. they're hard, make a decision on how hard you wanna work! If you ever wanted advice on - how to have better sex, how to do more [...]

      If I were president, I’d demand to know Coquette’s true identity, then I’d appoint her as my top life advisor, stat.

    15. Bailey Powe

      Much love to Austin for sending this my way! I feel as though I now have a WWCD filter in my brain and life will be easier to navigate with it.

    16. Bookishsmaug

      Dear Coquette was such a hilarious read. I don't read that Non-fiction very often but I couldn't put this book down. It was so good! I'm new to Coquette's work as well as what she does on the internet and it was really interesting getting to know what she's like through the questions she answers.I have to admit though, the author can be a bit harsh. Being new to her work and all, it took me quite a while to get use to her vulgar tongue and bluntness. But once I was familiar with the way she writ [...]

      This review was originally posted here on my blog, Magic & Musings.* I was fortunate to receive a copy of Dear Coquette for review from Icon Books, thank you! *If you like foul language, questionable advice, sass, and the hard truth, this book is for you. Putting some of her most popular and informative blog posts into print, The Best of Dear Coquette reads like an abrasive advice column, because that's basically what it is. Our mysterious agony aunt regales us with tales of cocaine, one-nig [...]

    18. Sarai

      I'd never heard of Dear Coquette until I saw this book sitting on our new book shelf. It's like a Dear Abby for a new age, with more sex, drugs, and cursing. I'm not a huge fan of cursing, and if reading the word f**k a thousand times will bother you, you probably don't want to read this book. Other than that, the advice is mostly good, sometimes funny.Book description:Dear Coquette unleashes the brutal truth about life, love, dating, sex and everything in between.For nearly a decade, The Coquet [...]

      To be honest, I would do almost anything to have CQ be my therapist. She's harsh, but goddamn she's good. I didn't hear of her blog until summer of 2015 when her Tumblr was shut down and I'm sort of glad it got shut down because I'm not sure if I would have heard of her without that happening. As a new reader, I liked being able to see some of her old golden stuff (you can only go so far on her blog without getting tired that blog is old as HELL). I only gave this book 4 stars because I think wh [...]

      I loved, loved, loved this. I don't always agree with all of The Coquette's beliefs, but she's smart, witty, brutally honest and mostly spot on when it comes to answering the questions that readers are sending in. It's brilliant - and I already have a waiting list to read my copy. There's explicit language, and very straight talking. Well worth your time.

      *3/5*read 188/320 pages Loved the sarcasm and how bitchy she is! however, it gets a little too repetitive overtime which made me really bored, overall pretty good from what I have read. Will pick up again and hopefully finish when I need something light hearted !

    22. Joe

      I have been reading the Coquette's blog for a long time and her writing has helped me re-examine and improve my life. I'm a great fan and admirer and I hope you all enjoy her work as much as I have.

    23. Laura Marquez

      It's so interesting to see how much of my life was influenced by CQ's advice. On certain occasions I'll even catch myself asking, "What would Coke do?"
