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.”
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!
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.

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!
