(42) Such a Pretty Fat by Jen Lancaster


I *heart* Jen Lancaster.

I discovered her when I read the Advanced Readers Copy of her first book Bitter is the New Black . I laugh my ass off each & every time I read about some new mess she has gotten herself into. In fact, I have read an excerpt from her second book, Bright Lights, Big Ass, to almost every bookseller in my store. If you are one of my booksellers, you know which one I am talking about. The Ikea escalator blurb. What kind of dumbshit puts their most precious cargo on a fucking CONVEYOR BELT!?? Ugh!! My biggest pet peeve, ever!!!
(by the way, that wasn't a direct quote from the book, but you get the idea!!)
Anyway....
Her writing is the perfect mix of intelligent wit & self deprecating humor. Her new book is just more proof that her books are the manifesto of the average American woman.
In her new book, Such a Pretty Fat, Jen takes us all on her wild ride of weight loss. From her visits to Jenny Craig, to attending a Weight Watchers meeting, to her sessions with her personal trainer, Barbie, you can't help but laugh til you cry when you read about her experiences.
If you are a normal woman who just wants to laugh, you need to pick up her books. And if you are too cheap to buy the books, check out her blog. http://www.jennsylvania.com/ You will get an idea of her style & when you stop laughing, you can go buy her books.

I still need to read her books. I may just have to break down and buy the first one. If you like them so much, I'll probably like them too.

I will see if I can scrape up the ARC of the first one. I have it somewhere.

I can't wait to read this book..plan to bring it on my honeymoon when I don't have textbooks staring me in the face constantly!

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
