I've Got This Round: More Tales of Debauchery - Mamrie Hart

I've Got This Round: More Tales of Debauchery by Mamrie Hart was just what I needed after the last couple of books. Without realizing it, I desperately required a fresh dose of humor and Mamrie's voice in particular pulls one out of their own funk and reminds them that life should be fun. If you want to read a book by someone who feels like they are in your corner and rooting you on then you are in the right place. She has inspired/reminded me to continue to live authentically and for me. Also, I should travel more. Like a LOT more. If you've never heard of Mamrie I highly recommend you do two things: Watch her YouTube channels and read her first book. After you've done those two things you'll have a better understanding of just what you're getting into by diving into her second book which focuses less on the distant past and more on living in the moment. In I've Got This Round Mamrie set out to make moments that could be turned into a book and she succeeded with flying colors. She tests out a dating app which I had never heard about before and then I heard about it again the week after I finished reading this. (It's called Raya and I think it's for celebs. Full disclosure: I never researched it.) She goes on crazy trips with friends where everything is planned last minute and insane things happen. Some of the stuff that happened was so surprising that I literally looked up from the page and stared into space for several minutes. (I so badly want to tell you which things I'm talking about but I don't want to ruin it for you.) I have no idea how someone can consume the amount of alcohol that Mamrie does and still function as a normal human. It does make for hilarious content though so...worth it? This is a fun read that still manages to have a lot of heart. If you enjoyed You Deserve a Drink (the book and/or her YouTube show) then you will undoubtedly love its sequel. 10/10

The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass
The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass - Mandy Hale sadly I had finished this book long ago & didn't know because it just didn't seem like the end. You feel like you're getting advice from an old friend so I thought there was more life lessons! LoL I was wrong! I however loved the book & Mandy did an excellent job!

Single Infertile Female: Adventures in Love, Life, and Infertility - Leah Campbell

Besides Lauren Graham’s novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe this was my second most anticipated book I’ve read this year. Unlike Graham’s novel however, I had no worries on whether or not I was going to enjoy the book. I had already been reading Leah’s blog for awhile now and I knew that I liked her and her writing style. So I was confident that whatever was enclosed in those 400 plus pages, I was going to enjoy reading. But there was still a little part of me that worried that I was either going to see Leah differently than how I’ve come to know her over a year of blog reading or that it was going to be a repetition of what I’ve already read on her blog.

Fortunately none of those things came to pass. My opinion of Leah hasn’t changed except give her even more respect than I already have for her…and the book actually filled in her life before I started to read her blog, or stuff she hadn’t posted a all so it was (almost) completely new to me and at no time did I get bored or skip through parts that I had already read…and even though I knew how things were going to work out, I was still emotionally engaged all the way through. I didn’t actually cry, but there were definitely moments where I misted up.

And kind of a spoiler alert….Leah does wind up with a happy ending. Eventually.

51/50 The Magical Adventures of a Single... 51/50 The Magical Adventures of a Single Life - Kristen McGuiness Even though this book isn't that long page-wise it seemed to drag on and on. If I would have known that all 51 dates that Kristen goes on are written out in detail I probably wouldn't have read this book. I found the parts about her childhood interesting, but I just couldn't get interested in her 51 dates. I'm sure writing this book was therapeutic for her, but it just wasn't a book for me. I probably wouldn't recommend this book to anyone I know. I do applaud Kristen McGuiness on her journey to get sober and stay sober though.
