I’ve Never Been to Vegas But My Luggage Has
*** Special THANK YOU to BookLook for providing me with a review copy.***
Mandy Hale is affectionately known as The Single WomanTM around the world. In just over two years, Mandy has garnered a massive Twitter following of a half a million people from across the globe. With a heart to inspire single women to live their best lives and to never, ever settle, Mandy cuts to the heart of the matter with her inspirational, straight-talking, witty, and often wildly humorous take on life and love.
Blogger and author Mandy Hale, affectionately known as “The Single Woman” to her half-million social-media followers, is living an adventurous life that proves even our lowest lows and messiest mess-ups can point us toward our joy-filled destiny as single women.
In I’ve Never Been To Vegas, But My Luggage Has, Mandy delivers heart-to-heart, often hilarious stories from a life filled with love and loss, glamour and goose bumps, faith and friendship, big dreams and battle scars. She shares the bittersweet euphoria of her high-school romance, the panic-stricken cluelessness of her first day on a stressful job, and the foot-in-mouth horror of her red-carpet interview with a music legend.
Along the way, Mandy dollops personal anecdotes with encouraging insights. From thrilling first kisses to crushing break-ups, from soaring career milestones to promising flights that never quite got off the ground, she unfolds in often uproarious detail the zigzags along the path toward a pinnacle moment: sharing a table and a pinch-me-I’m-dreaming conversation with her lifelong hero.
In the end, Mandy turns Sin City’s infamous marketing slogan on its head: What happens in her life doesn’t stay in her life. She shares even her darkest moments in witty, winsome ways that make us not only feel her pain, but also laugh with her and apply her hard-won nuggets of inspiration to our own lives.
“Happily Ever After” might not look or feel quite like what we expect, but as Mandy is discovering—and as we can discover along with her—it is well within our reach.
I hadn’t heard of Mandy before requesting this book and being a married woman, some may wonder why I’d be interested in a book like this. True, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the title and book trailer really caught my attention and I wanted to know more.
I’m so thrilled that I read INBTVBMLH!!! The stories that Mandy shares in this book are fun, funny, heart-breaking and inspiring! I love that she is open and honest about the journey that led to The Single Woman. She shares about love, loss, and everything in between. There were chunks of this book that I highlighted…not wanting to forget the gems the author bestows on us readers.
Mandy’s story is a wonderful reminder that God is using ALL things to work together for our good and His glory. This book isn’t just for single ladies, be sure to pick up your copy today!!!
