In light of my recent trips, Disney last week and Atlantis next week, I decided I needed some new reading material. I have followed Jen Lancaster’s blog, jennsylvania for a while now. I have read lots of people’s reviews on her books and I have even had them on my goodread’s shelf, but I decided to pick up all three about a week ago. AND I AM HOOKED. Jen is such a gifted writer. I read these three books, BAM! BAM! BAM! Right in a row. I was physically unable to put them down. I read them on planes, trains, all over the place. Laughing out loud constantly. I have NEVER read books before that make me crack up like a crazy person like that. People literally were staring at me, and I had tears coming down my eyes at a few points from the laughter. Lancaster is freaking hilarious.
I would re-read particularly funny passages back to boyf and he would think I was nuts. People in the metro would laugh at me for laughing, but that was just fine, because I was having the best time reading her books. It felt so good to laugh like that from reading about the life of Jen Lancaster. She touched upon great topics such as money issues, city-life, weight loss and so much more, but she put her own fabulous two-cents into everything, and it was just a pure joy to read.
I am very sad I have finished all three so fast and now I have to find something else to read. I am really not looking forward to making that kind of decision and I feel bad for whatever book comes after Lancaster’s fabulous trio.
At least I have something to look forward to! Jen’s new book, Pretty in Plaid is coming to DC – May 8! To the Barnes & Noble on 12th Street! Bet your bottom doller that date is highlighted in my planner!
If you are looking for a fabulous read, check out these books. They seriously rock!
