Life As I Blow It: Tales Of Love, Life & Sex . . . Not Necessarily In That Order by Sarah Colonna, Chelsea Handler

Sunday, January 22, 2012
In this wickedly funny and irreverent memoir, Chelsea Lately writer and comedian Sarah Colonna opens up about love, life, and pursuing her dreams . . . and then screwing it all up.
Sarah believes we all struggle to grow up. Sometimes we want to have fun, not take things too seriously, and have that fourth margarita. Other times we would like to get married, stay in, order Chinese food, and have a responsible, secure life.

From her formative years in small-town Arkansas to a later career of dates, drinks, and questionable day jobs, Colonna attempts to reconcile her responsible side with her fun-loving side. Sometimes this pans out, and sometimes she finds herself in Mexico handing out her phone number to anyone who calls her pretty. She moves to Los Angeles to pursue acting, but for years is forced to hone her bartending skills; she wants a serious boyfriend, but won’t give up nights at the bar with her friends. She tries to behave like an adult, but can’t seem to stop acting like a frat boy. In the end, she discovers that there doesn’t have to be just one or the other. And if there’s one thing Colonna has learned from her many missteps, it’s that hindsight is always 100 proof.

Goodreads Summary

Want to know more about this particular star from Chelsea Lately?  Sarah holds nothing back, the reader will have the pleasure of reading every vivid detail and experiencing the embarrassment, horror, pleasure, and odd delight of Sarah.  Sarah was not always on Chelsea's show, she had to struggle through finding jobs, boyfriends, and herself like the rest of us.  The trials and her reactions to these obstacles are priceless, the reader will be laughing and biting his/her lip along with Sarah. 

Sarah attempts to balance her responsible and fun-loving side to no avail, the problems that ensue due to this are hysterical and worth reading about it if a reader is so inclined.  Sarah is brutally honest and likable for the most part.  Some portions of the novel are so hard to believe that they actually seem realistic.  The reader will be rooting for Sarah for the most part, especially when she is particularly in the gutter...or bottle.  This book is definitely for adults.  The language and scenes depicted vary from the graphic to the crude.  Readers who appreciate this type of humor should run out and purchase this book.
