Book Challenge Book- Pretty in Plaid

Image via GoodReads
I read this book for the winter book challenge with Megan.
This was for the category:  Read a book you already have at home but haven’t gotten around to yet (from the library, from a bookstore, borrowed from a friend, on your e-reader, whatever).

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jen Lancaster. I read one of her books for the first time about 3 years ago.  I came upon the first one I read by accident. I was walking through the book store just picking things up when I saw Bright Lights Big Ass. That title will grab you lol. The cover was so cute! I picked it up and read a few pages. I was laughing as I walked to the register to purchase the hilarious book. 

Her books have never disappointed me. Pretty in Plaid was just as fantastic as the others I have read. Jen lives in Chicago and writes about her life. Her life is so comical. In Pretty in Plaid she goes back in time to tell the story of how she became the unfiltered smart ass she is today. I love her. I want to meet her and tell her how funny she is. I'm sure she probably already knows that or she wouldn't have sold so many books.

She's written several non-fiction books about her life and two books that are fiction, one of which won't be available until February.

If you want to laugh out loud at home or in public...
If you enjoy sarcasm...
If you need a pick me up...

Go read one of her books. Any book will do. My personal favorite is Bright Lights Big Ass. I've read it several times and I still laugh. It is fantastic!

Switching gears for a moment. I just got back from the library. I went to go check out a few books on my list of books to read for the challenge. Making a list of books to read is one thing. Actually holding four of them in your hand is another. I'm a little overwhelmed lol. 
I have a lot of reading to do!

Also I have Panda Express...and that is just stupendous! 
I ate all of the cream cheese rangoons in the car on the way home shhh!


  1. I will have to add her on my goodreads list!

  2. Love this author and her humor, my favorite of her books is definitely the first one too!

  3. I really wanted to participate in Megan's book challenge but just don't have time. I will have to live vicariously through you, her and Jess! Read some more good ones for me :D
