Let Them Eat Cake


Today, I’d like to recommend a book that I recently enjoyed, called I Was Told There’d Be Cake. It’s a collection of hilarious essays by the ever-witty Sloane Crosley, and I felt that she successfully captured the spirit of all the trials and tribulations that come with being in your twenties. It’s a lighthearted and easy read—good beach material composed with an intelligent and sharp sense of humor.

{I Was Told There'd Be Cake $10.20}

My personal opinion is that this selection of essays is more relatable to females (she does have one that outlines a particularly horrific stint as a bridesmaid, after all) but I do think that her clever writing is universally appealing. I just received her second book, How Did You Get This Number excited to start reading it!

Also… cake is a fitting theme because it is my amazing friend Shannon’s birthday! Shannon is, in a word, badass. Wishing you a wonderful day, Shannon—we’ll have to celebrate in person when you come visit later this summer!
