Do as I say, not as I did

Hi, my name is Summer Land. No really, it is. Clearly my mom Donna exhaled some of the abundance of free love she inhaled in the 60s when it came to naming me.
Anyway, I should warn you that I'm what people call a sharer. Make that an oversharer. I really like telling stories ... about myself. And they always seem to involve tattoos, tampons, booze and boys. Sometimes all at once. Just kidding! (Or am I?!)
Now you're probably trying to figure out how someone born in 1987 can have anything to put in a memoir, but a lot has happened. So here it is: Summerlandish, all the hard-won butthole-tearing lessons I've learnt over the years – 'summer-ised' in their glamorously gory detail.
So turn to the first page for my take on love, life and awkward moments involving too much caffeine and a noticeable lack of restraint.
I'm still working on that :)
Summer Land is 24 year old 'average American girl' who shares her story from babyhood through to backpacking as a uni student, before falling in love and moving to Mudgee, Australia. But Summer is really anything but average; she's a self-professed attention-hungry discretion-free egomaniac who seeks out every joke she can be the butt of and holds nothing back in recounting them here in a collection of outrageous stories that are nothing short of shocking.
I met this gorgeous woman called summer at a wedding I recently went to, she mentioned she had written a book and being the book worm I am I downloaded it... I was extremely hungover and hoping for an early night but there wasn't a hope in hell I was going to be able to put this book down (I finished the next day)... It is extremely funny, she is so open about all the stuff as girls are to scared to talk about... So if you looking for a light hearted read and a bit of a laugh this is definitely the book for you!!! 👍🏽👍🏽
Funny, charming and totally unselfconscious. Would highly recommend.
This book reminded me how funny it is to be a woman. Women don't usually take the opportunity to laugh at our often embarrassing bodies or even more embarrassing behaviour. When it comes to crude, raw honesty, men usually win…but not anymore. Summer Land's style is hilarious, dry and self-deprecating and though you'll inevitably cringe, you'll mainly laugh and perhaps even cry. Summerlandish tells what it's really like to be a woman - coupling love with humiliation, beauty with brawn - and bundling it into a light and epically entertaining package. Honest, breezy and hilarious - Summerlandish is a great way to spend a weekend. Read!
