*Blog Tour & Review* Tattoos and TaTas by Tara Sivec

During the month of October, 100% of the proceeds from Tattoos and Tatas will be donated to breast cancer awareness.
Claire and Liz have always had a friendship that defied the test of time, but when one of them is diagnosed with a disease that every woman fears, their bond is put through the wringer. How do you cope knowing your soul mate could be taken from you?
Filled with memories of their life long friendship, inappropriate behavior, bad tattoos and shaving cats, the two friends will realize that laughter really is the best medicine.
Tattoos and TaTas is not your typical love story; it's a story of friendship and learning how to let go when something is beyond your control.
Hysterical and touching, Tattoos and TaTas is a must read. I'm not sure that I can adequately describe the sheer awesomeness of a book that made me ugly cry and laugh so hard I snorted, but I will do my best.
If you are unfamiliar with the lovely ladies of the Chocolate Lovers Series (go correct that immediately, these books are hysterical), Claire and Liz are each others person. A lifelong friendship has seen them through ups and downs but when Claire announces she has breast cancer it's Liz who's devastated. How is she supposed to support her best friend's battle when she's the one who may lose her soul mate? In standard fashion the ladies deal using a huge amount of foul mouthed hilarity and above all else - love.
My Aunt Bev, Aunt Karin, and cousin Kathy are all breast cancer survivors. My cousin Kathy is the lady who lent me my boobs for my wedding. SERIOUSLY. I was rocking an A cup the day I got married and my cousin Kathy rolled into my bedroom the day of the wedding with this fancy wooden box containing some chicken cutlet looking weirdness. She insisted I needed them (and she wasn't wrong) and I'll never forget her smile when I relented. When each of them fought their fight against breast cancer I remember feeling helpless and at a loss of what to do.
Tara Sivec does something with Tattoos and TaTas that I truly appreciated. She uses humor to make being scared and unsure ok. She makes it ok to embrace what your feeling as long as you then move on, have a good laugh and get ready to fight like hell.
Favorite Quotes:
"What do you expect me to do, Liz? Scream and cry about the unfairness of it all? What good will that do me? Do you think the cancer will be like 'Well, shit. If she thinks it's unfair than we obviously need to skedaddle.'"
"How do you prepare yourself for a life without your soul mate, while at the same time holding onto hope that they will be okay? You have to walk a fine line between hope and reality, and every single day that line gets thinner and thinner."
"Fuck Cancer. Save second base. Fight like a girl. Do it all and do it with a few laughs because you are amazing, you are strong and you are a fighter, just like my best friend."

A phenomenal read that is completely original and benefits a great cause - how could I possibly give Tattoos and TaTas less than five stars? Do yourself a favor and pick this up ASAP.

Happy reading.
