Delightful. Gave me much to think about in terms of what I'm doing with my life. At times funny, at times poignant. It doesn't read as fast as other memoirs I've devoured, and I'm not sure why. Usually I can tackle a book this length in 1-2 days. This one took me a week. But maybe that's how the author would've wanted it anyway. ( )

I have either really loved Lancaster's memoirs (Bitter is the New Black) felt meh about them (Pretty in Plaid) or just downright did not like them ( Jeneration X).

This was I felt just meh about in the end. This memoir follows Lancaster trying to cross things off her bucket list. Now age 46, Lancaster finds herself throwing herself into more things since her beloved dog Maisy passes.

Some of the things on Lancaster's list like learn a language and travel to Italy are really engrossing to read about. However some of the other bucket list items just didn't grab me (find a new hobby and discover an entirely new playlist) and maybe this is me being a jerk, but finding a new hobby and creating a playlist just didn't seem bucket list worthy.

Also this memoir really was not that funny. I don't need it to be non-stop laughter, but unlike with previous books I did not smile or laugh out loud once.

It also reads as if some other huge issues were happening with Lancaster and she alludes to it a bit, however, she says that this is not that kind of memoir so she doesn't go into it in depth at all. I don't need to read the nitty gritty of the self discovery that Lancaster went through, however, this book felt as if several chapters were left on the cutting room floor. There seems to be a sense that Lancaster is not happy with several things going on. I guessed that via some things said and unsaid in her last two books that Lancaster had a falling out with her family though they now may be reconciled. Readers are also given a hint that Lancaster has entered into therapy. I don't need to read about it. I just always find it weird in memoirs when the author leaves out key things.

Lancaster's writing felt a bit choppy too. Instead of doing the footnotes in this book she decided to keep interjecting with sidebars. Doing this broke up the flow of her writing and it distracted me while reading. I think it would have been better to just stick with the footnotes.

There were some things that Lancaster discussed that did speak to me. Such as how social media has made people more distant from each other. And I agree with her about how sometimes the internet outrage machine needs to take a day off when recounting an incident that got blown up via a post she made on Facebook. Also when she describes going to Italy I found myself reminiscing.

I have no idea what other memoir Lancaster has in her back pocket. I just hope the next one brings back some of the older magic that made her memoirs must reads for me. ( )

In true Jen Lancaster fashion, this book is hilarious. ( )

A snarky memoir about getting older and living a life without regrets. It has come to the author's attention that she is entering her "second act" in life. Most of her wild college friends have children and all of them have jobs and responsibilities. He nights of drunken excess and spur-of-the-moment tattoos are basically over. This realization causes her to examine her life and compose a bucket list. What will she wish she had done with her life? What goals has she left underachieved?

This author's life experience is close enough to my own that I find her memoirs exceptionally helpful. If she is struggling with something, I probably will too. Likewise, if she can do something, I feel all the more encouraged that I can as well. It was very inspiring to watch her take on grown up eating habits and sensible travel goals. I needed this book.

If you want to be entertained, read this book. You aren't going to be taken to another dimension, live in another world or learn how to fix something. What you are going to do is take a ride through Jen Lancaster's life and laugh a little and see yourself a little. I really enjoyed reading this and enjoyed being entertained for a few days. ( )
