Jen Lancaster's JENERATION X!


Winner announced HERE!




I know you’ve all been waiting for this one and I’m always so happy to have my friend Jen Lancaster on the blog. I can’t believe she’s got another book out and this may actually win for having the longest (and coolest!) title to date: 

Jeneration X: One Reluctant Adult’s Attempt to Unarrest Her Arrested Development, or Why It’s Never Too Late for Her Dumb Ass to Learn Why Froot Loops Are Not for Dinner

Two things that struck me here on the title alone: I don’t even know what an arrested development is, and I had NO idea that Froot Loops is not spelled FRUIT! Cah-razy!

But, I fell in love with Jen the first time I met her at another good friend’s book signing and Jen didn’t judge me for eating a fallen truffle from the dirty floor in the bar we were in. And she’s proven to be every bit as cool in real life as she sounds in her books. I think that’s why her books are so amazing – you can read them and RELATE. She’s like the best friend you’ve always wanted. You can actually imagine sitting up front with her in a car, (a convertible, right?), your hair blowing in the wind, and you’re jamming to ‘80s tunes on your way to somewhere fabulous to raise some crazy hell, am I right or am I right? Doesn’t that sound so Jen-esque and fun?!

And even though Jen has pulled a fast one on all of us by growing up a little bit in this book, you know she’s still a fun girl at heart, and that she’s still going to play with her Mad Men dolls, and she’ll still do blog posts acting out Twilight scenes (PLEASE Jen!), and that she’ll still buy some crazy stuff on eBay when high on Ambien. Because while we love the grown-up Jen from Jeneration X, we still adore and want to hang out with the Jen from before too!

In Jeneration X, Jen will do some growing up though, and she’ll get life insurance, a mortgage and a mammogram, prepare and host her own Thanksgiving, and tell some Generation Y Ashley Wanna-Be-Writer-Lazy-Ass to basically go eff herself (my favorite chapter – chapter 7 – so far!) in the nicest way possible – by forever immortalizing her in this book. (I wonder if Ashley knows she’s now famous, or would that be infamous?)

Jen learns life lessons along the way, some of the times reluctantly, which she so very generously shares with us in the book.

Here’s a link to a very funny, as always, video as she campaigns to be our next… President? Hell, I’d vote for her! And yes, I’d take Fletch as a body guard!



To win Jeneration X, leave a comment on what you MOST love about Jen Lancaster and her books. If there’s some strange chance you’ve not yet been introduced to her, make something up, but damn it, you better make it good! OK, we all know you love Jen, and it's 5 a.m. and I just woke with a raging migraine and can't sleep. I decided to change my question to better reflect the nature of the book - WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL!! But, you can ALSO answer the first question too!


Also ... if you haven't entered to win the other books still up for grabs, these are still currently available so check out these features here on Booking with Manic too:

Jen is crazy. I love how honesty and quirky she is. What isn't there to love?! Her books make me laugh harder than anyone else's.

On a side note. You, must, must, must watch Arrested Development and I had no idea about the froot loops thing, either!

Ready To Be A Momma said...

Jen is one author that makes me laugh harder than any other one out there. She's hysterical, and I definitely could use some of that right now!

Ally said...

I really like that she has no shame about her politics. She stands up for what she believes without shoving it down peoples' throats.

Kristin Shelburne (Lousiville) said...

My cousin introduced me to Jen Lancaster via "Bitter is the new Black" and I quickly read "Bright Lights, Big Ass." I love that she isn't afraid to show you her real life and real thoughts. The woman has no fear! I have expanded my own life due to her influence and am much more willing to try new things. Thanks Jen!

As Cape Cod Turns said...

Loved Jen since the first time you met her and ate the truffle off the floor! Can't wait to read this one :)

ncsuloges said...

Steph- Have you tried acupuncture for your migraines? I have had really bad ones since grad school and it seemed to offer a lot of relief for me. I am so sorry for you! I hate reading about when you have them.
All I eat now is Honey Nut Cheerios but if I could have whatever I want it would be Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Fruity Pebbles.

absolutahnie said...

cocoa pebbles or fruity pebbles. i just love the way i always laugh out loud while reading jen's books!

Joelle said...

My favorite childhood cereal was Cocoa Crispies. I loved that I got chocolate milk at the end. lol.

jdstec said...

I love everyone of Jen's books because I think she is freakin hilarious and Frosted Mini-Wheats.

Crystal said...

I LOVE Frosted Flakes. Why? Because they're GRRRRREAT! lol cheesy much? haha!

Although my friend introduced me to Honey Nut Bunches of Oats with Almonds and was pleasantly surprised with how tasty they are!! And sweet! (but a bit expensive, so I'll stick with FF) :)

Juliet Farmer said...

cheerios has been and probably always will be my fave cereal.

Bernadette7 said...

Cinnamon toast crunch for the win!

buttah said...

I own all of Jen's books except for Wish You Were Here, and now this one!!! I love, love, LOVE her and she would totally fit in with me and my BF as we love us some 80s songs and movies! Not to mention great cocktails and reality TV! I have laughed so hard reading her books in bed, that I have scared the beejeezus out of Hubs MANY times! And as far as my fav cereal...hmmm, I really love me some Honey Nut Cheerios! They are timeless! ooooh!! or Life Cereal..another great timeless one!!

EKB said...

jen is fantastic, and I'm with "ncsuloges" I LOVE cinnamon toast crunch and fruity pebbles...I just never buy it anymore.

DaphneSFL said...

What I love most about Jen and her books: They are honest and hilarious, and she doesn't make apologies for anything.

My favorite cereal: Lucky Charms

equinn726 said...

What I love most about Jen & her books: Both are hilarious and honest.

Favorite Cereal: Post's Banana Nut Crunch.

BrendaL71 said...

Wow...that is a hard question. There is something about how creative she is with her humor. It's like she can take any moment in her life and make it funny. At least that is what I think unless it really does happen that way. I think the best was in her first book when she bought a designer bag for a steal from a bum on the street. My favorite cereal is Honey Comb.

Krystal said...

I love how honest Jen is in her books! I feel like we're besties just chillin on the couch talking to each other when I read her books!

My favorite cereal is Lucky Charms!

Seeryus Mama said...

My favorite cereal is Lucky Charms. When I say lucky charms, I mean only the dried marshmallows. The cat food part ends up in the trash.

Jennifer said...

Honeynut cheerios. Been a fan of Jen's books for a long time. Excited to read this one!

Unknown said...

I love Jen's books- always make me laugh out loud!

My fav cereal is corn pops.

Heather vazquez said...

Sometimes I re-read the "whose idea was it to put the bear skin rug on in front of the dogs --and what shot out of Loki's ass" when I need to really laugh.

And I like Cheerios. I am a Mom but I think they are delicious.

Mer-Maid said...

Life. I have always loved the plain, not cinnamon, version. And for dessert? Fruity Pebbles!

Chrissy said...

My favorite cereal is Cookie Crisp! :) And I simply adore Jen!

Anonymous said...

Love Jen's books - laugh out loud funny as you know! I now have a new blog too, Yours! Love tongue in cheek humor, nice glass of wine and a down to earth funny book that I can relate to as a 47 something!
P.S. So boring here... raisin bran if I eat cereal...or cheerios right out of the box.

arenee said...

What's not to like? Apple Jacks.

dc girl said...

My favorite cereal is actually Fruit Loops! As far as her books, I love her sarcasm and the fact that her books literally make me laugh out loud.

Renae H. said...

I love how Jen is honest to the point of brutality! Always keeps me laughing out loud~

My favorite cereal is Frosted Mini Wheats~

lkchloupek said...

I love Jen because she says all the things I would love to say out loud! I also love Cookie Crisp!

Miss Meg said...

I am pretty sure that they no longer make this cereal because it's dessert in a bowl, but rice crispy treats cereal was the most amazing cereal to date. If you are (unfortunately) unfamiliar with this genius creation, it's xactly what you are thinking — rice crispy treats broken apart FOR BREAKFAST. In a bowl of milk.
Does it get any better than that without going straight to candy bars?

Ginny said...

My Favorite cereal has gotta be Frosted Flakes! Though, to quote Mike Myers, I care for Apple Jacks a great deal.

I love Jen Lancaster, because, like me, she has no patience for stupidity. But unlike me, she's not afraid to tell you about it!

Tracey said...

I love Jen and give away all her books to my friends after I've read them. I once was reading on the bus and snorted HOT Starbucks out my nose while reading Bitter, yeah not my finest moment.

Peanut Butter Captain Crunch is the best hands down.

LittleFishHugePond said...

Kashi Honey Toasted Oat, it doesn't get soggy in the milk while I'm eating.

Jen is honest and hilarious!

Rudy said...

I love her books and I love peanut butter cheerios

Yelana Flowers said...

Cap't Crunch's Crunchin Berries

Rachel said...

I love Jen's writing because I feel like she not only makes me laugh, but also gets to the core of how she feels about all the topics and usually, I find that reading her books helps me figure out how I feel about those issues too!

And my favorite cereal is Frosted Flakes with bananas sliced onto it!

Natasha said...

Jen's books are the only ones I've read that have ever made me snort and laugh out loud while reading!
My fave cereal is Honey Bunches of Oats!! Mmmmmmm.
Email: yentam77@yahoo.com

PamKitteh said...

Jen is awesome because she keeps it real and SAYS what we are all thinking. And the fact that she's proudly a WASPy white girl who scared away gangbangers!

My fave cereal is Frosted Mini Spooners. Not because I'm cheap or can't afford Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats. They actually taste better and you can't go wrong when it is $3 and comes in a bag the size of Great Dane food.

Amanda said...

Jen is hilarious! I lol when I read her books, which makes me look like a nut when I read them in public places, like on the beach during our honeymoon last summer.

My favorite cereal is Rice Chex, which probably alludes to me being boring. But I'm fun! I swear!

PomJob said...

I pretty much only eat Raisin Bran these days but I love Lucky Charms. I learned in college that vanilla soft serve atop LC is divine!

Ari'sMommy said...

Jen is hilarious! Love reading her books.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch ROCKS!!!

Kristen said...

Cookie Crisp, definitely.

and who DOESN'T love Jen.. I am particularly fond of her obsession with reality televeision and her ability to make me laugh until I CRY!

Dodibeth said...

I love jen because when I was reading Such a Pretty Fat, I laughted out loud at my daughter's tennis practice and all the snobby moms stared at me! I was laughing to hard, I was crying. WTH? Is that not normal at a tennis lesson in the burbs? Whateveh! Oh, and my favorite cereal is Captain Crunch Berry

Amy Christensen said...

Love Jen AND Fruit Loops.

Claire Collins said...

Just like Jen, my first purchase on my Visa in college was a designer handbag that I couldn't afford, and I was rush chairman of my sorority in the late '80's. (Although no one called me Hitler. That I'm aware of.) My favorite cereal is Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch .

RebeccaD said...

Count Chocula has always been and will always be my favorite cereal -even though I'm on the paleo diet now. Let it sit a minute and you have the combo of bland mush and sweet mush, all floating in chocolate milk.

I love Jen because I used to work in NYC, then "ran away" to live in the southwestern desert, and her writings remind me of the beautiful, infuriating chaos of the city.

Kimberly Pearlman said...

Lucky Charms! :) Mmmm deliciousness. And I don't care that I'm 32 & they're still my favorite! And they are an anytime meal...:)

Katie said...

Oh that is a tough one! It depends on the day but honestly I think Honey Nut cheerios are my absolute fave!

Miss Meg said...

I don't eat cereal anymore but I love Cinnamon Toast Crunch & Cocoa Krispies. They both make the milk delicious.

Lori said...

I heart Jen because she says things we're all thinking but don't want to say.

Favorite Cereal: Apple Jacks

Maci Cae said...

My favorite cereal is Cinnamon Toast crunch, the best cereal ever.

The thing about Jen is that she writes like she talks and as you read, you can just imagine sitting on a couch with her having a glass of wine while she tells her story. After reading one of her books, you feel like she is a friend, that you know her.

Bridget said...

Jen is so funny. Love her memoirs! My daughter got me the Bitter is the New Black book, and I have been hooked ever since. Got the new book already, going to her signing tomorrow in San Diego. Can't wait!

Lizzie_Bitz said...

Favorite Cereal ... Fruit Loops, its yummy and let's be honest typically an acurate discription of the person enjoying them ha-ha!

Shpresime Adili said...

Love Jen! Been hooked since her first book.
Fav cereal - multigrain Cheerios.

CT said...

I love Cocoa Puffs. And Jen. In no particular order. But I love Jen's writing because she makes me feel better about my choices. Cereal for dinner, designer bags to unemployment, bathing suits in the sauna...
Love.

cathyangel39@ said...

I really think Jen and I are twins that were separated before before....reading her books sound like my memiors which I have yet to write .....I hopeone day to meet Jen when she comes to New Orleans. Favorite cereal Special K with red berries!

cathyagel39 said...

Separated before birth!

Mary Concialdi said...

The reason I love Jen Lancaster is she says what I am thinking and too afraid to say.

Favorite cereal - Cheerios. Rather boring...I know.

Jen said...

Lucky Charms (of course)!! No milk required to enjoy this magically delicious-ness, and hours of entertainment provided just in picking out all of the marshmallows first. Plus the left over marshmallow dust at the bottom of the bag (which will also be known, from here on out, as rainbow crack)

jenknee1976@hotmail.com

Girl Run Ragged said...

Reeses Puffs. Candy bars for breakfast are frowned apon, but I can have an overflowing bowl of these bad boys without any guilt!

mstwizted1 said...

I positively LURVE Jen! She's a real girl, like me. She makes me laugh till my head hurts and I have to cross my legs. I also lurve Cap'n Crunch - "Oops! All Berries" or "Peanut Butter Crunch". It's like crack - only with milk....and without the need for rehab.

Favorite cereal is Captain Crunch, but I don't let myself eat it.

Hi. My name is Debbi. I'm a Gen-Exer who still eats cereal for dinner. My favorite cereal is Golden Graham's and I my last bowl was last night (yes for dinner)...

I love Jen's books because I can understand and relate to practically everything in them (except for maybe the Froot Loop thing...).

Sarah said...

Raisin Bran - I'm too young to need it but do, LOVE Jen Lancaster.

Jamie said...

Lucky Charms. And Capn Crunch with crunch berries. I don't even care that it will shred your mouth.

Jen's books make me laugh out loud. I love her ambien stories because I can totally relate. She writes the way that I wish I could speak. lol.

Mak said...

LOVE Jen!! She is hysterical!!

I happen to enjoy cereal almost more than any other food, and could never pick just one favorite, but somewhere near the top of the list are: Kix, Blueberry Muffin Tops, and Life!!

I love the fact that Jen and I would have probably physically fought over a dropped twinkie on the floor then the winner(me!) would have let the loser (jen) have a small bite.
Yes, I am that kind. (Okay it was the bit with the unidentified dirt on it)
My cereal would be Barbecue Ribs cereal...um, anything put into a cereal box means it can called cereal.

Nicolle said...

She makes me laugh out loud more than any other author! Favorite cereal: Cornflakes (super boring, I know).

Jen is hilarious and says what she thinks without censoring herself to make sure other people are happy.

I'm one of the only people I know who never eats cereal unless it's a rice krispie treat or a banana nut crunch/peanut butter/marshmallow bar. ;)

I have also always loved Jen ever since my friend loaned me her first 3 books while recovering from surgery. I was laughing so hard I thought my stitches were going to burst.

Well I love Lucky Charms...usually try to saving those fabulous marshmallows til the very end...and now they make them in an easy to go "granola style" bar! That screams health! I LOVE Jen. She is hilarious, honest, and someone who writes that I feel like I relate to.

Marqlaw said...

I love Jen Lancaster and her books because at a time when I had to make some employment decisions, I read "Bitter is the New Black". I laughed so hard that my husband thought I was crazy! I really needed to laugh!

I love Honey Nut Cheerios (I know it's lame and not a sugary cereal and I blame my mom for that)!

Jeffie T said...

The knock-off Capt'n Crunch with Crunch Berries that comes in a bag. It's so much better than the 'real' stuff.

I LOVE Jen's books! I picked up Bright Lights, Big Ass in ATL and was the crazy person on the plane, laughing so hard I was crying. That part about the lady doc visit makes me laugh every time.

Actually, I prefer oatmeal, but coming in second place is Rice Chex with bananas.

Hard to narrow down a favorite cereal, althought I did know about the fr"oo"t things. I'm going with the "magically" delicious cereal that my mother did not allow me to eat after the red dye fiasco in the 70's. Yes, I'm that old;)

When I read Jen's books, I burn with envy that I am not as clever as she is but that's ok since the world can only handle so much snark. My favorite cereal was the one with the little chocolate cookies. I'm not even sure they still make them. Anyway, thanks so much for all the fun blog book events!

Love Jen because she is laugh out loud funny, and she is so honest, I love it!! and I love that her books put me in a good mood! If I'm in a funk, I pick up a Jen book and feel so much better! And I cannot pick one favorite cereal.... Love too many. Ifi didn't have a husband and kids, I would totally eat cereal for dinner like every night!

Corgi Lover said...

Love that Jen writes what I'm thinking. No longer wondering if I'm the only one that thinks that way!! And growing up, I loved Cookie Crisp. Little cookies for breakfast? Win - win!!!

sarahskerik said...

To heck with the Special K this and whole-grain that. I can't be trusted around Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch.

I worked with Jen back in the day, when the Man had his boot on her neck. I've enjoyed watching her mounting success almost as much as I've enjoyed her books. I too did some time in the same tough neighborhoods, and I too consider John Hughes a primary influence, one run under parents. My only complaint about Jen's writing is that I can't read it in public. After some embarrassing snorting incidents on planes and trains, I've resolved to only read Jen's work in the privacy of my home.

Melissa said...

I am addicted to Vanilla Almond Special K. I go through withdrawal when I don't get to have it. (Passover was TORTURE!)

I've only read "If You Were Here" but it was really funny and I've heard good things about her other books, so I definitely want to read them.
