I believe the first time I heard about author Jen Lancaster was from the blog Summer is a Verb which is totally fitting because Jen Lancaster started out as a blogger herself. Jen has turned the art of blogging into a wonder career as a New York Times bestselling author. (I may or may not be a little bit jealous.) So when I saw her latest memoir at my library I knew I had to check it out.
According to Goodreads:
One would think that with Jen Lancaster’s impressive list of bestselling self-improvement memoirs—"Bitter Is the New Black"; "Bright Lights, Big Ass"; "Such a Pretty Fat"; "Pretty in Plaid"; "My Fair Lazy"; and "Jeneration X"—that she would have it all together by now.
One would be wrong.
Jen’s still a little rough around the edges. Suffice it to say, she’s no Martha Stewart. And that is exactly why Jen is going to Martha up and live her life according to the advice of America’s overachieving older sister—the woman who turns lemons into lavender-infused lemonade.
"The Tao of Martha" is a great summer read. My own home is far from "Martha Organized" but I am trying so I found it quite humorous to rad alone as Jen takes one year to get her home perfectly organized. I also truly loved reading all about Jen's beloved dog, Maisy and the little life lessons one can learn from their pets.
I am be bias since Jen is a former Jersey-girl, like myself but if you are in the market for a good read I would have to recommend this one!
