What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding A MemoirTimately Kristin's adventures led her to a better understanding of what she was actually running away from at home and why every life hurdle seemed to put her on a transatlantic flight to the unknown Eual parts laugh out loud storytelling; thoughtful candid reflection; and wanderlust inspiring travel tales What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding is a compelling and hilarious debut that will have readers scrambling to renew their passports. I gave this 25 starsSimilar to Wild From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed this book is packaged as a travel memoir about a woman who's gone off the beaten path for self discovery but instead ends up really just being 200 pages of one woman's persistent pursuit of an orgasm Now I love a good romance take charge of your love life née sex life book just as much as the next girl However when I pick up a travel memoir I want to hear about the places the author has been and things shehe has seen and done NOT so much about the who heshe has done in such rapid succession as I'm readingI low key believe that Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert spoiled this genre for me in a way No other author has been able to strike that same delicate balance between writing about travel and love or relationships while traveling for me Mind you I'm totally aware of the privilege aspect of traveling writing that comes about in this genre but Strayed and Newman's aforementioned books really laid it on thick Note I'm still working on Kinky Gazpacho by Lori L Tharps so there may still be hope

I had such high hopes what a great title It's a title that I might have used for my own memoir But I can only give it 2 stars It was OKAnd perhaps that was my problem with this book I've lived my own version of a single woman traveling and having adventures of all sorts life so this wasn't exactly a titillating story Just a long accountingbrag about her travels and her relationship mistakes It had some high points and held my interest for about the first 100 pages and then it was just and of the same Until naturally it reached the logical conclusion that yes of course all of this was naturally leading to a husband and two kids Because where else could it possibly be leadingFull disclosure I received a free copy of this ARC from Random House

Received a free advance copy from publisher I'm a sucker for a witty title I wanted this book to be than what it was Instead of a book of female empowerment or taking your own path it was a long list of exotic locales and sex partners spread out across the globe No slut shaming here but listing off the number of dudes you bedded in different countries just doesn't do anything for me The book is well written and has its moments of humor don't get me wrong I guess I was looking for self reflection maybeThere are great takeaways to be had living in the moment and not being afraid of that doing the thing you're supposed to do in the place you're supposed to do it but it's hard to feel a connection to the author when she doesn't acknowledge the crazy amount of privilege in her life Most readers are not going to be able to connect with someone who jets off to the other side of the world at a moment's notice or spends each New Year's in a different country with other overly rich privileged pretty people That old saying about how the other half lives ran circles in my head the entire time I read I liked the book don't get me wrong I just wanted More There was a lot of this is just what happens in when the truth is this is just what happens when you have lots of money and friends with lots of money Not saying Newman hasn't earned her ducats but most people aren't in her situation
