I voluntarily reviewed an advance readers copy of this book. No remuneration was exchanged and all opinions presented herein are my own except as noted.
Hilarious, candid, and full of shenanigans, YouTube sensation Mamrie Hart—the New York Times bestselling author of You Deserve a Drink—is back with more adventures.
When Mamrie simultaneously enters her 30s and finds herself single for the first time since college, the world is suddenly full of possibilities. Emboldened by the cool confidence that comes with the end of one’s 20s plus the newfound independence of an attachment-free lifestyle, Mamrie commits herself to living life with even more spirit, adventure, and heart than before. Mamrie dives into new experiences at full-tilt and seeks out once-in-a-lifetime opportunities (like meeting the Dixie Chicks), bucket-list goals (like visiting the Moulin Rouge), and madcap adventures (like going anchors-away on a Backstreet Boys cruise)—all while diving back into the dating world for the first time in a decade.
In I’ve Got This Round, readers will find the same shameless honesty and I’ll-try-anything-once spirit they loved in Hart’s New York Times bestseller You Deserve a Drink. Mamrie doubles down on her strong female friendships, her willingness to engage in shenanigans, and her inimitable candor, taking the reader along for a wild and unforgettable journey through adulting. http://www.penguinrandomhouseaudio.com/book/538766/ive-got-this-round/
Laugh-out-loud funny, Mamrie Hart’s memories are suspect only because of the prodigious amount of booze and pot she consumes and inhales. But who cares if the memories are perfect as this woman provides narrative in which I think I heard her have to stifle laughing at her own writing – a sign of the recognition of the ridiculous and the ridiculously hilarious nature of her life.
Where has this comedian been all my life? I had not heard of her – proving that I am older than effing dirt. That she can stand traveling and is apparently a pleasant drunk who doesn’t ascribe her consumption of booze as a failure of character.
I admire her personality and character which, even drunk, has an integrity many people do not even own drunk. She has fabulous and loyal friends who really are siblings of the heart.
I thoroughly enjoyed this series of essays which starts off with the break up of her long term relationship and ends up with her feeling just as fun, but more responsible.
I loved it and now I need a drink!
