by Jen Lancaster
Inspired to do her own "Happiness Project," Jen Lancaster devotes a year of her life to living a Martha-Stewart lifestyle, having perfect parties, cleaning, homekeeping and hosting holidays a la the guru of all things domestic. Of course, things were bound to get messed up. The author describes her achievements and failures with equal detail, all while adoring her pack of animals and her husband. In the end, she lives, she loves, she learns - and she glitters a lot of things in her house and her life.
While this is an interesting memoir-project by the author of Bitter is the New Black, it's not for everyone. But if you are a Michaels-stalking, tablecloth-ironing, dog loving person who strives to be a little more like Martha and a little less like a mess, this is a great story for you. The audiobook is read by the author.
