Book Review: I Take You by Eliza Kennedy

First of all I would like to tell you all about a wonderful website I recently signed up for called  I thought this website was almost too good to be true when I first signed up, because they promised to ship me a free book of my choice in exchange for an honest review here on my blog.  Not too long after I made a request, they sent me this adorable book I Take You by Eliza Kennedy.  I was shocked that they followed through with their promise, because I have been let down by so many other websites out there, so thank you Blogging for Books, I'm so very happy that I discovered you!  I encourage any of you who love to read and have a blog to sign up right away!  It's a very simple process, it's free of charge, and they have an awesome selection of books to choose from. 
Go check it out here  It was very difficult to choose my first book, and it took me quite a while to finally make my decision, but I honestly think I made a great choice with I Take You.

Here is my honest review:

When I first started reading what I thought would be a "typical chick lit" book, I was surprised to find the main character Lily Wilder doing so many outrageous things while she is engaged, like making out with men in bars, drinking heavily, and enjoying illicit drugs.  Not only was I surprised, but I was absolutely delighted!  Let me tell you why. Even though I love chick lit books, I have to admit that I am tired of the typical "goody two shoes" characters that I have so often read about prior to this book.

Lily is a complete sh*t show, and how could you not love her?  I'm sure certain people may be offended by such a wild main character and story line, because like I said earlier, they are used to their typical sweet little, clean cut fairytales.  Well honey, let me tell you... if you want clean cut, this book is not for you!  Lily is the girl who's just partying it up and acting out because she's not sure if she wants to get married or not.  And don't expect her to apologize for her behavior, because she doesn't even really seem to feel that bad about it.  She might act like she cares, but I highly doubt she does.

Let me just say that I'm happy to finally read a book that has a character that most of us women (AND men) can really relate to... even though we probably don't want to admit it.  We've all done some things that we regret, and maybe some of us have done some things that we don't regret but should.  Who knows?  All I do know for sure is that t
his book is full of laughs, full of gasps, and full of, "OH NO SHE DIDN'TS!" I would definitely recommend this book all of my friends and to anyone that's open minded, modern, and with a great sense of humor.  I would NOT recommend this book to anyone that's stuck in the 1950's.  Welcome to the year 2015 ladies and gentleman!  This book has been called "revolutionary" and I would most definitely have to agree.
