My Festive Read - You Better Not Cry
I decided on something funny as my Festive Read.
Written by Augusten Burroughs, ‘You Better Not Cry’
The author turns his wit to Christmas memories.
Have you ever eaten the face off a six-foot puffy Santa? Have you ever made your own gingerbread apartment? Have you ever woken up next to Kris Kringle himself? Well, Augusten Burroughs has, and in this cynically funny, wistful, emotional, and touching collection he narrates Christmases past and present. With gimlet eyed intelligence and enlightened text, Augusten shows how the holidays bring out the most awful in us and sometimes the very, very best.
I think I'm on the Naughty List for laughing at this.
