I Regret Nothing
"The point of this project, and really, my overarching goal for the year, is to minimize that which I regret." ~ pg. 116
Jen Lancaster is funny. There was a time that I knew I was in for a treat when I crack open a new memoir of hers. She is a New York Times bestselling author for a reason. For years, Jen has been transparent about her life. Bitter is the New Black is damn near a classic. Now in her eighth memoir, I Regret Nothing, she focuses on regrets.
Readers may remember her mistakes—such as carrying a Prada bag to the unemployment office—but a girls' weekend prompts Jen to turn a mid-life crisis into a mid-life opportunity. I Regret Nothing has its entertaining LOL moments but is not as hilarious as her earlier memoirs. There were a few anecdotes that could've been explained more to really drive the humor home. Nevertheless, it is worth reading for bookhearts that follow Jen's journey through life. Just don't expect our gal in pearls to make you bust a seam laughing.
