MY BOYFRIEND WROTE A BOOK ABOUT ME By Hilary Winston

SEE IF YOU'VE WON THIS BOOK:





You all are going to LOVE this book. It’s a memoir, and I’m absolutely crazy about this one. Who wouldn’t be with a title like this:

My Boyfriend Wrote A Book About Me (And Other Stories I Shouldn’t Share With Acquaintances, Coworkers, Taxi Drivers, Assistants, Job Interviewers, Bikini Waxers, and Ex/Current/Future Boyfriends But Have)

Of course, at first glance, you’re dying to know WHO IS THE BOYFRIEND WHO WROTE A BOOK ABOUT HER? This book includes true stories about Hilary Winston and it starts off with the story of her discovering that her ex-boyfriend of about five years who she lived with and talked about what they should name their babies actually wrote a book about them and in that book he refers to her as the “fat-ass girlfriend.”

OUCH.

Revenge is such sweet sweet victory. Because Hilary Winston’s book ROCKS. It’s filled with hilarious stories about her ex, in a self-deprecating yet humorous tone that doesn’t make her sound vindictive. She’s just a funny, funny writer. Yes, some of it is a little over the top if there are a few of you who might be squeamish with a bit of raunchiness, but I truly believe Hilary gets the last word in. As she should!

BLURB:

I’m a single girl and I have stories I feel the need to tell, including the one about the death of a relationship and its resurrection in the "New Fiction" section at Barnes & Noble …
Just when Hilary Winston is finally getting her life together she finds out her ex-boyfriend wrote an unflattering novel about her, referring to her as the "fat-assed girlfriend." This sends her into a downward spiral that's sometimes hilarious, and other times heartbreaking, causing her to question that almost-five-year relationship - as well as every relationship she's had before and after it. Now Hilary reveals her dirty laundry in a laugh-out-loud, non-fiction book written for every woman who's ever been dumped. 

You can go here to read excerpts from the book, most of the beginning on the ex-boyfriend, which incidentally, I have done book reviews of his on MaNiC as well! 

Here’s more about Hilary, because I think she’s a really talented person, probably with a smallish ass: Hilary is currently working as a writer and producer of the critically acclaimed comedy Community and was one of the writers for the Emmy®-award-winning show My Name Is Earl. She began her writing career by getting people coffee at various places like National Public Radio and Hollywood Squares. She can now proudly say someone else gets her coffee. Unfortunately, she doesn’t like coffee. Winston lives in Los Angeles with her cat Lolly. 

Whether you win it or not, if you’re a fan of funny memoir, this is one you’ll definitely want to check out! OH MY GOSH, I first posted this and FORGOT TO ASK A QUESTION! Maybe because I was so freaked out about the last book's question! But here's a FUN ONE! If you're ex were to write a book about YOU, what would you think he would say about YOU!!!! I think mine would say, "SHE GIVES TOO MANY HICKEYS!!" hahahah, Of course, I haven't had an ex in A VERY LONG TIME!!! OK, you tell me now, what your ex would say about you if he were to write a book!

Remember, MaNiC MoMMy is aiming to feature great books each and every week this year, and you’ll have a chance to win it as well!

Oh what a scream! I could picture my luck that way (although few of my exes are literate enough to write a grocery list, let alone a book).

I only had one big relationship before I got married at 21. I think if he wrote a book about me he would call me the commitment girl. I was all about it and he wasn't.

TaraUB said...

Probably would say I was crazy. It's been such a long time, I don't really remember (blocked out) most past boyfriends.

Carly said...

Even when we parted ways my ex never had anything bad to say about me. Perhaps I was too nice. That could have been a fault, for sure.

Kimberly Pearlman said...

I'm so buying this book!! :)
Why can't they all be like her?

equinn726 said...

My ex once referred to me on Facebook in a post where he asked "Why do I always pick the crazy chicks?"

Seriously, this book sounds hilarious - I'm so going to have to buy it.

Kelleyc said...

Its been a long time (back in college), but I would like to think it would be something along the lines of "she was really awesome, why did I let her go?!?". Lol. But it would probably more like "good riddance, Crazy Girl"!!!

Kristi said...

This sounds really good!

Based on how some of my most meaningful relationships ended it would probably be "That Evil She-Bitch Ruined My Life.

EBrowning said...

I don't know...he's probably call me the girl who drove him crazy! ;)

Ally said...

My last ex was in college...he would probably say I was too needy.

Kelly said...

My ex would probably call it - The Bitch Broke My Heart and All I Got was the Cat

Amy R said...

EKB said...

Read Baby Read said...

I think they would say I was a wolf in sheep's clothing. (insert evil laugh)

CAnative66 said...

This sounds hysterical. Got married at 20 a loping time ago. Wouldn't have a clue what they would write about nor do I care. Haha

Christina said...

jdstec said...

better as friends.

Terri said...

Ugh. Since my ex turned into an ass, I'm sure the majority of his comments would be nothing I'd want to hear, so let's go with "She's a great Mom!"

She picked her family over me.

Margaret said...

Hmmm....probably that he is missing my cooking. That was one thing he used to love was my cooking. My story does have a happy ending though because I married a guy who can cooks for me lol!

Margaret(singitm)

kayo said...

I bet the ex would say.... "Who's Kayo? "

ncsuloges said...

She's freakin crazy! haha

Emily said...

Hmm...probably, "She refused to put out." lol

absolutahnie said...

she was far too good for me and my family, i'm so glad for tehr that she escaped our clutches!

robynn78 said...

Not sure what he would write, he contacted me through facebook and told me the good guy got the prize... so who knows haha!

Lindsay Elizabeth said...

"its not you its me... I'm not ready for a real relationship......"

except he was, with someone else. ouch.

accidentalgypsy said...

How fun!! Mine would probably be, "WTF? or The fine line between acting aloof and not being interested because she's doesn't know what she wants or I don't know, maybe she's crazy" lol

Juliet Farmer said...

my ex would say, "everything happens for a reason."

TinaPow said...

Probably that I talk to much, and call to much!

Kimmi said...

I can tell I'm going to love this book already.

My Ex would say I didn't put out quickly enough. I would say I should've waited longer. Like once I'd regained my sanity.

Lizett Torres said...

I think that my ex would say that I am the one that got away.

Crystal said...

"oh she's so awesome!" LOL! jk actually this is something he said to me, that I'll never forget:

"you know what, I'm too good for you. You don't deserve me."

(note: we were like 16ish)

(also note: i went on to graduate valedictorian, finish college, and I'm almost a licensed engineer. Whereas he still lives with his grandparents...and his baby momma)

This book was hysterical - clearly I have rea dit already but good luck to the happy winner!

Jenn3128 said...

"I can't believe I cried in front of that bitch".

buttah said...

My Ex would say I was the one that got away, because I am awesome like that! HAHA!

your invisible pixie said...

my ex would probably say something along the lines of "i can't believe she let me borrow that much money and i ended up paying her back. she was a real bitch." shrug. he's an ex for a reason.

this one looks great!

BrendaL71 said...

Hmmm this is hard. I can't think if anything juicy. But I'm sure he would say she wasn't the girl for me. or she wasn't what I wanted in a wife. Something along there I guess.

ludy2288 said...

I've read this book & loved it!
My ex would say something like 'What is this girl's deal?'

Dawn in CA said...

I think my last boyfriend before my husband would say I was a lot of fun but immature. I was in college and he was older, already graduated, and kind of serious. He was there on my 21st birthday and had to carry me home from a bar. Our relationship went downhill after that.

lucy872 said...

I actually had an ex from high school tell someone that I was the kind of girl you marry and that he was too young when he was with me and that at the time all he cared about was, well, you know and I wouldn't, so he dumped me. He said he wished he had met me much later in life. I consider it a compliment...although at the time I was totally heartbroken!

Denise said...

"Oh, you mean the one with all the irrational fears?"

-Denise F.

Krystal said...

It's been so long ago and we were young....I have no clue what he'd say, nor do I care! Haha

Joelle said...

I don't have an ex-bf...what about an ex friend?!?! That would be scary. lol...

Leah B said...

One might say "the one that got away" and one might say "fights r us"

Tina B said...

"That 2-Timing B#@$* Cheated On Me!" Haha!!

Sslinsky said...

I can't wait to read it!! An ex of mine might say, "She was too nice."

Amelia said...

all I will say is I hope they forgot about me....

Erin G said...

This sounds like a great book! My ex would probably call me crazy too. That's why they're exes right?!?

Emma S. said...

I think my ex would say I swear too much. I curse more than a man, and am not offended.

Katie said...

Probably she was too needy. haha

Anonymous said...

My ex-boyfriends would write about me "She could've been the one...".

-Donna W.

Kim W. said...

One of them would probably say I was too crazy to handle! Haha! I didn't handle relationships too well...I was like Carrie Bradshaw. Tried to hard, went for the wrong man, every single time. Til I met my husband -- finally I got it right!

Probably that lucky bitch dodged my crazy ass family! That family was super weird!

Susan @ The Book Bag said...

Darn! I didn't know what I had till she was gone!

Tracey M said...

It was just a matter of bad timing.

Hally said...

Huh...mine would probably say something about 'wanted to be Suzy Homemaker, but SHEESH....that girl couldn't stop talking. so I slept with a girl that had the same name and didn't say anything.'

Thanks Manic.

Anonymous said...

"That relationship could have ended three years earlier and we both would have been better for it...". At least that is what I would say!

Tallulah Scribbles said...

She's very laid back like a guy & lots of fun - as long as she has had enough sleep. When she says she needs a nap - BELIEVE IT. You have been warned.

Kristi said...

She cries too much...

Which I will totally own, because I am a crier. I cry with any strong emotion whether I'm happy, sad, angry, etc.

keltban said...

I think he'd say...I hope she's happy and I was stupid to let her go.

Leslie said...

Control freak...in my defense though, someone had to have some initiative! LeslieGC

Wohlski said...

oh boy, i think it really depends on the ex. The last one, who still texts me after five years, would say he didn't appreciate what he had until it walked away.

betsy_blixt said...

I don't drink enough. He drank way to much and claimed I wasn't fun when I wasn't drinking with him. Yeah, that ended fast.
