I Was Told There'd Be Cake

I Was Told There'd be Cake by Sloane Crosley

This book of personal essays is witty and relatable. Well, at least I could relate to it. She has a writing style similar to that of Chelsea Handler but with less swearing. Follow Sloane through her journey of self discovery and read all about her mistakes along the way.

My favorite essays include:
One Night Bounce
The Good People of this Dimension
The Ursula Cookie

Sloane tackles the very difficult topics of volunteer work after high school, bosses that are not ideal, and how a woman's view of men changes since childhood. How can you go wrong with such topics? I mean, when you were 7, what did you think a One Night Stand was? Read the book and you'll get Sloane's rendition.

Rating: 4/5 stars
