I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

This is my first ever book review so go easy on me for it.

Agatha Whitt-Wellington is such a funny woman and a great author but this book took a while to get into and took so long to complete. Her opinion on things are so funny and she has a great lifestyle, I must admit. I do recommend this book as it is pretty cool and rather funny but I advise you to read something else alongside it. So yup, 3 stars :).
