it was amazing
Read from May 01 to 04, 2012

I feel like this book was Jen Lancaster's comeback. My Fair Lazy and Pretty in Plaid were entertaining, but I haven't enjoyed reading one of her memoirs this much since Such a Pretty Fat.

I read more than half of the book the first night I got it, and I felt myself comforted by her snarky tone. I was amused by many of the stories; I was giggling while reading. I didn't want to put it down. I rushed home from work Wednesday through Friday and the first thing I did was grab my copy. I was into it; I didn't want it to end.

This book was different from the others because it was more of an essay collection. It flowed, but there were some chapters that weren't quite chronological. It took a second to get used to, but was definitely a welcome change.

I wouldn't necessarily say that this was the funniest, or my favorite, Lancaster book. But it's definitely on the top of my list. Highly recommended! Can't wait for more.

I know it's still somewhat chronological, but it seems more like a bunch of related essays than a continuous story. Either way, I like it. So far, it's more entertaining than Pretty in Plaid and My Fair Lazy. Nothing can top Such a Pretty Fat, though!"
