The Tao of Martha by Jen Lancaster
I love Jen Lancaster's non-fiction. Her books crack me up with her sarcasm and her wit. In this book, Jen has decided to live 2012 following Martha Stewart's wisdom--regarding cooking, holidays and living. Each chapter details a task/thought/goal that Jen is working on following Martha's thought process. Some chapters show more success reached than other chapters. Along with Martha, Jen details her life--a sick dog, a great and supportive husband, a health scare of hers, in such a way that readers will feel so bonded to her that it will be like chatting with a good friend.
Several times I laughed out loud while reading this book. Jen tells of her cat on prozac and since I have a cat on prozac too, I could totally relate. Her health scare was something that I could relate to as well. The ups and downs of marriage, while maintaining your sense of humor, seems familiar. I recommend this book; I enjoyed it a lot.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review through the Amazon Vine program.
