blogger book swap.

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

so i joined a book swap a few weeks ago! and failed to blog about it yet. but we're moving - so that excuses me of all my failures for now, right?

sweet green tangerine hosted it along with some other gals. my swap partner, ashley from this unscripted life, was also a host and such a fun partner!

we're both mamas and former military spouses so we had plenty in common! we pretty much have the same taste in books too. which is totally awesome.

she sent me THE funniest book. i mean, it's so funny i've already ran to the library to stock up on every other book they had by the author. SO good! she sent me Bright Lights, Big Ass by Jen Lancaster. of course, i devoured the book in just a few days. the more i read, the more i related to jen. she's a whole lot of personality and a whole lot of funny.

it's basically jen telling stories of her life - in a 'in your face, totally honest' kind of way. really - go read the book!

i'm on my third book already and counting...

  3. I'm so glad you and Ashley got along so well. I knew you would. :) She's actually one of my oldest friends from when we lived in Germany together. Isn't it so cool when your blog life and IRL come together like that? haha
    Anyway, this book sounds hilarious. I will check out if I need a fun read.
