Might As Well Laugh About It Now by Marie Osmond
This is not a memoir or a juicy tell-all book. In fact, although as opaque as you would expect your best friend to be, Marie doesn’t dish about Hollywood or name drop in her recent book. And it’s all the better for the things she left out as well as the things she included.
Each chapter has a theme-a mini lesson-Osmond has learned along the way and she shares in an entertaining and intimate fashion. She tells of reluctantly listening to her instinct that possibly saved her daughters life and of the deliciously fake tan and very real faint that colored her Dancing With the Stars adventure. She jumps through hoops for her children and makes light of the fire that took her favorite memorabilia by creating a Christmas card in honor of the blaze. The woman is amazing-taking the most serious aspects of her life and either learning a lesson from it or laughing it off. And that’s it in a nutshell. She doesn’t take herself too seriously while she places importance on God, family and making the most of what you’ve got.
Might As Well Laugh About It Now comes highly recommended by Marysworld.
