Finding My Badass Self: A Year of Truths and Dares ~by Sherry Sanfa-Stanley

Thank you to Booksparks for sending me a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review. 

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Fighting midlife inertia, Sherry Stanfa-Stanley stares down fear through The 52/52 Project: a year of weekly new experiences designed to push her far outside her comfort zone. Her escapades range from visiting a nude beach with her seventy-five-year-old mother in tow to going on a raid with a vice squad and SWAT team to crashing a wedding (where she accidentally catches the bouquet). While finding her courage in the most unlikely of circumstances, Sherry ultimately finds herself.

For midlifers, fatigued parents, and anyone who may be discontent with their life and looking to shake things up, try new things, or just escape, Finding My Badass Self is proof it’s never too late to reinvent yourself–and that the best bucket list of all may be an unbucket list.

This book was great. It’s the perfect choice to leave on your coffee table and pick up every day or two for some laughs as you wind down, because Sherry nailed it with this one. Not only are her experiences entertaining and eye-opening, but her wit and sense of humor are to die for. There was not a single one of her stories that didn’t have me chuckling to some degree (most of which actually had me laughing out loud, probably causing concern amongst the neighbors). This riotous journey of self-rediscovery is definitely worth adding to your collection. ~Amber
