I picked up a copy of I’ve Got This Round by Mamrie Hart in a recent book haul purchase from Book Outlet. I didn’t realize until I started reading that she was in a funny movie I recently saw called Dirty 30! Scroll on to find out what I thought of her book.

Review & Thoughts
I’ve Got This Round by Mamrie Hart
It’s ironic that I chose to read a book by someone who talks so much about drinking because my hubby and I have been working on improving our health so we’ve been cutting way back on alcohol. Two glasses of wine clocking in at 300 calories when you’re trying to stick to 1200 calories or less a day doesn’t exactly make sense.
Despite my current alcohol-free state, I related to her writing and her overall voice. However, I have to admit I’m not a huge fan of her writing style; she uses a ton of asterisks in her writing that brings you to the bottom of the page to get more of her train of thought on a specific item. The thoughts are funny, but it’s kind of like being distracted on purpose and then catching back up to where you were. It’s fun when it’s just a few to add a bit more insight to the anecdote but when it’s almost every page it becomes exhausting to read and enjoy.
In a Nutshell: Humorous book by a funny lady but a little exhausting to read in the current run-on format which took away from the overall enjoyment of the story.
My Rating: 3.75 / 5 Stars

The Year of Yes for the millennial set: in I’ve Got This Round, actress, writer, and YouTube sensation Mamrie Hart returns with even more spirit, adventure, and heart as she decides to live life at full-tilt.
When Mamrie simultaneously enters her 30s and finds herself single for the first time since college, the world is suddenly full of possibilities. Emboldened by the cool confidence that comes with the end of one’s 20s plus the newfound independence of an attachment-free lifestyle, Mamrie commits herself to living life as fully as possible. She seeks out once-in-a-lifetime experiences (like meeting Dolly Parton), bucket-list goals (like visiting the Moulin Rouge), and madcap adventures (like going anchors-away on a Backstreet Boys cruise)–all while diving back into the dating world for the first time in a decade.
In I’ve Got This Round, readers will find the same shameless honesty and I’ll-try-anything-once spirit they loved in You Deserve a Drink. Mamrie doubles down on her strong female friendships, her willingness to engage in shenanigans, and her inimitable candor, taking the reader along for a wild and unforgettable journey through adulting.
