I have either really loved Lancaster's memoirs (Bitter is the New Black) felt meh about them (Pretty in Plaid) or just downright did not like them ( Jeneration X).

This was I felt just meh about in the end. This memoir follows Lancaster trying to cross things off her bucket list. Now age 46, Lancaster finds herself throwing herself into more things since her beloved dog Maisy passes.

Some of the things on Lancaster's list like learn a language and travel to Italy are really engrossing to read about. However some of the other bucket list items just didn't grab me (find a new hobby and discover an entirely new playlist) and maybe this is me being a jerk, but finding a new hobby and creating a playlist just didn't seem bucket list worthy.

Also this memoir really was not that funny. I don't need it to be non-stop laughter, but unlike with previous books I did not smile or laugh out loud once.

It also reads as if some other huge issues were happening with Lancaster and she alludes to it a bit, however, she says that this is not that kind of memoir so she doesn't go into it in depth at all. I don't need to read the nitty gritty of the self discovery that Lancaster went through, however, this book felt as if several chapters were left on the cutting room floor. There seems to be a sense that Lancaster is not happy with several things going on. I guessed that via some things said and unsaid in her last two books that Lancaster had a falling out with her family though they now may be reconciled. Readers are also given a hint that Lancaster has entered into therapy. I don't need to read about it. I just always find it weird in memoirs when the author leaves out key things.

Lancaster's writing felt a bit choppy too. Instead of doing the footnotes in this book she decided to keep interjecting with sidebars. Doing this broke up the flow of her writing and it distracted me while reading. I think it would have been better to just stick with the footnotes.

There were some things that Lancaster discussed that did speak to me. Such as how social media has made people more distant from each other. And I agree with her about how sometimes the internet outrage machine needs to take a day off when recounting an incident that got blown up via a post she made on Facebook. Also when she describes going to Italy I found myself reminiscing.

I have no idea what other memoir Lancaster has in her back pocket. I just hope the next one brings back some of the older magic that made her memoirs must reads for me. ( )

In true Jen Lancaster fashion, this book is hilarious. ( )

If you want to be entertained, read this book. You aren't going to be taken to another dimension, live in another world or learn how to fix something. What you are going to do is take a ride through Jen Lancaster's life and laugh a little and see yourself a little. I really enjoyed reading this and enjoyed being entertained for a few days. ( )

If you like Jen Lancaster, you'll like this book. It's not her best, and it's not the first one I'd recommend to those new to her oeuvre, but it was definitely enjoyable. Bonus: it totally made me want to start restoring/upcycling antique furniture. ( )

I always enjoy checking in with Jen. After reading so many of her memoirs, I feel like she’s a friend. Speaking of her being my friend, she came to Kansas City a few weeks ago and I went totally fan girl on her. She had mentioned during her talk that one of her dogs is on Prozac. When I went through the line, I told her that if it made her feel any better, one of my cats is on Prozac. (For real!). In I Regret Nothing, she writes about her trip to Italy and I told her that I have also been to Italy. I could tell she was fearful that I would never shut up because she looked me directly in the eye and said firmly, “Thank you for coming.” What she meant was, “Get a hold of yourself and move along scary fan girl.” And I don’t blame her at all – I could have yammered on forever if not prompted to beat it.

This memoir is more introspective than Jen’s other books because it’s about her making a bucket list and then trying her best to cross off the items on it. Some stories, like the one about her attempting to ride a three-wheeled bicycle, are really funny. Other stories are not so funny, like the one about her Internet trolls. Which by the way, that’s another thing I wanted to talk to her about. I’ll just write it here since I’m sure she reads my blog every day. Jen, don’t let the trolls get into your head. They are pathetic individuals and giving them attention just makes them worse. You are awesome no matter what any anonymous coward online says. Do not feed the trolls.

This book had some really funny parts but overall was not as humorous as her other books. And I don’t think it was meant to be. As Jen is maturing and taking her life more seriously, I expect that her books will reflect that. And I’m fine with that because she’s my BFF and I still want to know what’s going on in her life, funny or not. If you haven’t read any of Jen’s books yet, I recommend starting with her first two – Bitter Is The New Black and Bright Lights, Big Ass – to get a sense of her biting wit and sarcastic yet sometimes clueless self.
