Sarah Pekkanen Winner & Another New Book to Win!

Hi Everyone, I first want to announce the winner of the three Sarah Pekkanen books. Sarah read the comments from everyone and one in particular struck her and so she has actually offered to give away two sets of books. One Booking with Manic reader was hit pretty hard by Hurricane Sandy and lost her home in NJ. Sarah read this comment and wanted to do a little something for her so Joani15 is going to be receiving a set of Sarah's books. The amazing Chick Lit is Not Dead girls Liz and Lisa heard about this too and would like to send Joani15 some books too. And I've got a few extra here that I'd like to send as well. We know it's not much, but we hope that a little bit of reading will help build back the library of books you lost during the storm. Blessings to you as you rebuild and we're all so glad that you're OK!

And the random winner of The Opposite of Me, Skipping a Beat and These Girls happens to be hazyswife! I do believe she is a brand-new reader of Booking with Manic so congrats to you!

If Joani15 and hazyswife can please email me your full names and addresses to stephanieelliot@gmail.com, we can get your books to you! Thanks everyone!

And in the next coming weeks, I'm going to try to get a bunch of books out to you before we finish out the year, hopefully a few books a week. There's a lot on my list and I need to get them to you, so please check back often. Here's a fun one for today for you girls!


Whether you're married or not, single, engaged, divorced or thinking about the guy of your dreams, this book will have every girl in hysterics.

Sometimes a bit crude, but totally relatable and laughable, Notes to My Future Husband: A Bitch's Guide to our Happily Ever After is a hilarious guide for all women!

With chapters including Notes on Friends, Famly, the Wedding, Our Home, Food, F#*king (told you it was a little bit crude!), Date Night, Rules, Good Stuff and more, the author clearly has it covered!

It's also anonymously written by "The Coquette" who is an advice columnist for The Daily, and her identity has never been revealed. She admits in the beginning of the book that she has been proposed to four times and turned all four men down. She has also admitted to having had her heart broken a few times too. I have to wonder if "The Coquette" is like 70 years old, and if she will ever get a Future Husband?

Either way, Notes To My Future Husband is a rollicking fun quick read, a great book to get for your friends who are engaged, and just hilarious in general!

If you'd like to win a copy, leave a comment on one thing that annoys you about your significant other. If you are single, leave a comment on something you will tell your Future Husband he absolutely CANNOT DO when you get married!

NEW TO BOOKING WITH MANIC?  

If you're new to Booking with Manic, thank you for stopping by! We love new readers! Some notes - If you're entering to win a book, please use an identifying name and it's usually a great idea to include an email, which I will never give out to anyone else. You can only enter once please. You'll need to check back here in about a week or so to see if you've won the book -- I will highlight the winner's name at the top of this post, or tell you where you can find the winner's name at the top of this post. Most books are supplied directly through publishers, publicists and the authors. Winners will receive books directly from the publisher or author within 3 weeks from the time you provide me with your address, unless I send you the book (sometimes I will). Sorry, but we can only ship to U.S. and Canada so if you're from another country, thank you for coming by to read and discover new authors, but we can't send you a book. Any questions on how I run the blog or suggestions on who you would like to see featured, please email me at stephanieelliot@gmail.com. Thank you for your support!

He never hears me the first time.

Ahhh newly single, call when you are going to be late.

Melissa said...

This book sounds hilarious!

Leaving laundry on the floor instead of putting it in the laundry chute. Oh, and saying he's planning to work on the day after Thanksgiving, even though that would mean I'd have to watch all 3 kids and try to get the house ready for our weekend guests. I still love him though!

Joelle said...

his snoring!!!!!!!!!!!! ugh!!! lol

jobellaella. lol

jdstec said...

It has to be when we are trying to decide on somewhere to go out to eat. He has no suggestions until I come up with one and then he is all...."or we could try XYZ.

Bev V said...

I can't read his mind, and if he's mad and won't tell me, how am I supposed to know??

Sslinsky said...

Don't start something you can't finish.

lucy872 said...

He can never find anything...it could be right in front of his face and he'll say he doesn't see it. Then he gets mad when I point it out!

Melissa Hightower said...

When the trashcan is full in the kitchen and won't take out the trash!

your invisible pixie said...

he can't chew with his mouth open! so gross.

Ally said...

We live in the country and don't have trash pick up. My husband constantly forgets to take it to the dump, so it piles in our garage.

Luvschocolate said...

oh, to only pick one is tough, how about the fact that he leaves the toilet seat up and unflushed. Not fun in the middle of the night.

Krystal said...

I hate when he puts a dirty dish in the sink when he just watched me put dirty dishes in the dishwasher. We have a rule...the first one to open a dishwasher full of clean dishes has to put them away. To avoid this.... he always puts them in the sink.

He purposely calls coffee, "cup of joe," even though he knows that phrase bugs the crap out of me! Mel Rem

betsy_blixt said...

He can't chew gum like a cow! Biggest turn off for me!

Corgi Lover said...

He farts! And thinks its funny!

Lisamarie said...

He pounces on me (or the kids) the minute we walk through the door with his list of things he wants us to get done. He gets a one finger salute from me everytime ;)

TaraUB said...

The Husband gets on me about leaving stuff laying around, but he does the same thing.

Sherry said...

Don't even get me started on what annoys me the list is way to long--lets just say you should not get married and think he will actually grow up--just because you are going to--do not assume anything!

slm8803 said...

Hmmm...where do I begin? Maybe asking me the same thing over and over b/c he didn't listen the first time...or expecting the kids to do things he doesn't...

Kristen said...

Aaaauuuugh snoring!!!!!

The man has never wiped off a counter, yet can do nothing in the kitchen without leaving a trail of crumbs!

Snoring and the inability to see dirt and/or clutter!!!

ludy2288 said...

I detest snoring! Drives me nuts!

hazyswife said...

His inability to listen to me completely - he's too busy formulating his next statement that he isn't truly listening to me

absolutahnie said...

just one? i'll go with the most heinous one (to date) clipping his toe nails while seated on the back deck wearing only his boxers...
he's only done it once but it about put me over the edge.

buttah said...

Hubs and I have been together for 16 years, so the list is endless...but TODAY, it's the fact that he's a baby when he needs to make an appointment for a doctor and wants me to call and set it up for him!! Ummm...NO! YOU call and set up your own appointments! I have to make my own, and our child's, so the least he can do is make his own!! Damn men! haha!

Juliet Farmer said...

he doesn't look first, he asks where something is.

Melissa said...

eating w/ his mouth open!!

Lizett34 said...

I would have to agree that chewing with your mouth open is a huge turn off!

Margaret Literary Chanteuse said...

This book sounds awesome! I hate when my hubby just barely nods his head when answering a question. SPEAK! lol!

Being married to a retired Msg Sargent who thinks I'm a peon soldier in disguise.

Carly said...

Don't hold the door open for me after you passed through. Let me go through first. I know it sounds petty but my husband is such a gentleman that I'm always shocked when he doesn't hold the door for me.

DaphneSFL said...

He always has his cell phone ringer off and NEVER hears it when it rings.

Kristi said...

Leaving all his tools out after he finishes a project... he will literally let them sit there for weeks and then get's mad at me for putting them in the garage but not putting them away!

Still nagging and pushing about an issue that has already been discussed and decided. Does with my parents as well. STOP IT.

CAnative said...

Married 26 yrs. my husband has racked it up in the annoying dept. The most recent is his incessant snoring!

This sounds like a really funny book. Might have to get this for my nieces and daughter for Xmas!

Not taking the recycling pile from the kitchen to the trash in the garage.

Kimberly Pearlman said...

I love this cover! :)

My major annoyance is when he says he'll take care of something, however we have different definitions of what taking care of something really means I guess. UGH MEN! LOL

Susan @ The Book Bag said...

He leaves his dishes and food containers on his end table long enough that they have to 'soak' before they can go in the dishwasher. Once they are in the sink to soak, they become my responsibility for some reason. I am trying to train him to rinse them and put them in the dishwasher right away. I don't think it will ever happen. *sigh*

LeslieGC said...

If I get married again, he absolutely CANNOT believe that I am both the chef and cleaner upper...seriously, one or the other but not both everyday!

Bridget O'Neill said...

Since my husband is better than me at keeping the house clean, I'd have to go with snoring! But he would probably argue that my kicking him while he's snoring is more annoying :)

Ready To Be A Momma said...

No longer married, but I couldn't stand the TV coma! Drove me insane!

Having to repeat myself again AND again because he doesn't listen...
