"Move over, Carrie Bradshaw. Here comes Mandy Hale! I've Never Been to Vegas but My Luggage Has is a wonderfully-crafted 'coming of singleness' story than will entertain and inspire all seekers of true love and faith." ~Daniel Goddard, Actor - The Young and the Restless
"Reading Mandy Hale's story feels like riding shotgun with a close girlfriend who is on the ride of her life, discovering and growing from the purpose in every twist, turn, and bump in the road. I love the vulnerability Mandy shares from her own life. The journey truly is the destination. " ~Natalie Grant, Grammy-Nominated Singer/Songwriter and Founder of Abolition International
"With this book, Mandy gives the most amazing perspective on the ups and downs of life. And in an often hilarious way, she lets us know we are not on this journey alone. This is, hands down, on my short list of favorite books!" ~Melinda Doolittle, Recording Artist, Author, and Finalist on Season 6 of American Idol

Top Customer Reviews
She showed courage of her vunerability of spreading her message to women on how to navigate, forgive, let go and most importantly be your own hero, whilst humbly acknowledging that God is her source of strength.
We have all been there before, dated the non-committed one, dated the ex again and again that always held your heart, dated friends and even dated herself.
Through her own stories she shows that your own morals, values, ethics and integrity are paramount. Instead of chasing or crying about waiting for Mr.Forever, have the courage to sit with your loneliness, work through your heartbreak, take a honest look at yourself and work on being the very best version of yourself that you can be, and if Mr.Forever does come along, well he is the icing on your cake, but at the end of the day you still have cake and you don't need a Prince Charming for a happily ever after.
Sit still and know that I am God. In every chapter she lives in every page and you just cannot wait to keep reading.. Chapter 13 is so far my favorite..... Buy this book and take the journey with her and you will find yourself on many pagers.. Its a life changer..It changed mine... God Bless
The book “I’ve Never Been to Vegas but My Luggage Has” is written by blogger and author Mandy Hale, affectionately known as Single Woman to her half-million social-media followers. In this book Mandy shares her bumpy ride of her life: wrong turns, humiliating flops, painful heartbreaks and happiness.
The first chapter of the book explains the title. Nevertheless you won’t stop right there instead you will love her as she candidly share her story even her darkest moments. Thus you’ll end up flipping page after page seeking for the answer on how she became successful despite all the things she had been through. Albeit she shares a lot about her relationship with different guys, but apparently it’s not [yet] a happy-ending love story. At the end you will realize that all things that we’ve been through are all part of the process of building us to be a person we are meant to become.
Mandy’s story is not unique; actually you can see and hear the same kind of story anywhere but thanks to her for explicitly delivering a very insightful story. Indeed it is another proof that dream do come true, although it might not be the exact plan that we build in the blueprint of our mind but somehow and in God’s way we will achieve it on His perfect time… and a better version though.
Disclosure: I received this book for free from publisher through BookLook Bloggers in exchange of my honest opinion. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC Guidelines.
Before reading this book, I was not a follower of The Single Woman, nor was I even aware of her blog and Twitter page. Apparently, she is quite popular, with over 500k followers (wow!).
I found her life to be pretty amazing and exciting. She's been on TV, interviewed famous celebrities on the red carpet, worked for CMT, partied with Kid Rock, kissed one of the members of New Kids on the Block, published books, and has even met and talked with Oprah. I admire how brave Mandy is and how she puts herself out there. Since I'm a blogger as well, I definitely find her success with writing, blogging, and social media to be inspiring as well.
Now the not so impressive thing about Mandy is her relationships. While reading this book there were many parts that left me shaking my head and rolling my eyes. For example she was in a relationship with a guy that physically hurt her and cheated on her. Mandy even had him take a lie detector test to prove he didn't cheat on her, and he fails miserably, and guess what? He convinces her that it was a fluke, and she takes him back...Ugh.
Okay, okay, I guess we have all taken people back that we shouldn't have and have made mistakes. At least she eventually got rid of that jerk, and never looked back. However, there was another jerk off that she was in love with called Mr. E. Half way through the book and I was already tired of Mr. E's crap, so I don't understand how Mandy keeps taking him back.Read more ›
