Review: I Regret Nothing by Jen Lancaster

I Regret Nothing
by Jen Lancaster

Publisher: NAL
Pages: 320
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  Sure Jen has made mistakes. She spent all her money from a high-paying job on shoes, clothes, and spa treatments. She then carried a Prada bag to the unemployment office. She wrote a whole memoir about dieting…but didn’t lose weight. She embarked on a quest for cultural enlightenment that only cemented her love for John Hughes movies and Kraft American Singles. She tried to embrace everything Martha Stewart, while living with a menagerie of rescue cats and dogs. (Glitter…everywhere.)

Mistakes are one thing; regrets are another.

After a girls’ weekend in Savannah makes her realize that she is—yikes!—middle-aged (binge watching is so the new binge drinking), Jen decides to make a bucket list and seize the day, even if that means having her tattoo removed at one hundred times the cost of putting it on.

From attempting a juice cleanse to studying Italian, from learning to ride a bike to starting a new business, and from sampling pasta in Rome to training for a 5K, Jen is turning a mid-life crisis into a mid-life opportunity, sharing her sometimes bumpy—but always hilarious—attempts to better her life…again.

Kritters Thoughts:  Jen Lancaster is known for her hilarious memoir like books that usually are focused on one topic or another, but this one takes a new route - a bucket list that can encompass many different topics.  I loved it!  

I have read almost all of her books and have loved them all, I just love her form of comedy - it can be crass and in your face, but if you like that kind of thing then grab any of one of her books and laugh until you are crying!  I loved that this one covered many topics and maybe I missed something, but I loved how she included her husband Fletch in a few of the stories.  

If you haven't read any of Jen Lancaster memoir books, you can start at the beginning or anywhere in between!  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
