Sarah Colonna's Life As I Blow It Review and Giveaway

I believe that humor is a necessary part of daily life. If there wasn't humor, life would truly be boring and mundane. It's important to not take yourself seriously and make sure that you laugh at the small things.

You all might know Sarah Colonna as one of the writers and roundtable stars of Chelsea Lately, which is one of my favorite shows. Her witty, yet frank and sassy stories and sketches are always entertaining, and she brings an added element of fun to the show. I've been a long time fan of hers and always enjoy seeing what hilarious thing she will do or say next!



Sarah recently published a biography called Life As I Blow It. The hilarious memoir highlights growing up in the south (which I can relate to), moving to LA to pursue big dreams, her dating life, and trying to find normalcy while just wanting to have fun. The book has you sympathizing with Sarah when she breaks up with one of her boyfriends, and then simultaneously has you laughing while trying to get out of an awkward situation. The stories go in chronological order of her life and each one is funnier than the next. All of the content flows well together and is truly written from the heart.

What Sarah does that sets her apart from other authors is that she doesn't attempt to sugarcoat her life. She can admit her regrets and what she is and isn't proud of, instead of hiding it. That to me makes a good writer that I can identify with.

This book was a very quick read for me. I couldn't put it down and I finished it in only two days. I was actually annoyed when I finished it because I wanted more! Any book that makes me laugh ranks high on my list.

If you're looking for a comedic book that will keep you entertained until the very last page, I highly recommend Life As You Blow It. You won't regret it!

Sarah's currently on tour for her book. Click here to see if she's coming to a city near you.

  67. I had never heard of Sarah Colonna, but your post on Facebook was shared by a friend of mine and it immediately grabbed my attention - why? Your headline - it includes my 2 yr old daughter's name (Sammi), my Mother-in-law's name (Sarah) and my former last name (Colonna)... Talk about an omen! After reading your review, I would love to check out Sarah Colonna's book as I too live in the South now, and love 'funny'. I don't know if I can follow ALL of your extra entry opportunities - (I live in the SOUTH now :) I've acclimated and now I'm a bit on the slow side. LOL But I'll definitely be following on facebook! Thanks for the introduction to Sarah Colonna - I wonder if we're related? hmmmmm

  173. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera.

    I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.

    Cheers
