We’re Going to Need More Wine–Gabrielle Union

This woman. THIS WOMAN.  She’s a badass. BAD. ASS.  You know when you see a book written by an actress and you’re like “Meh, I liked her. Maybe I’ll give it a read.”  Well thank FUCK I DID. This introduced me to a fucking FORCE of a woman.  I learned so much from Gabrielle inContinue reading “We’re Going to Need More Wine–Gabrielle Union”

Becoming–Michelle Obama

Not going to lie, I thought this would be boring. I love Michelle Obama, she is a fun time for a First Lady. But because of BEING a First Lady, I thought she was going to have to shove a bunch of stuff under the rug. And she didn’t.  She was honest about how sheContinue reading “Becoming–Michelle Obama”

This Will Only Hurt a Little–Busy Philipps

I haven’t always loved Busy Philipps. Or rather, her characters. I’m looking at whoever she played on Dawson’s Creek. But I was also like early teens when I was watching that show, so really, I had no stake in the game.  BUT. I did love her in Freaks and Geeks. And Cougar Town was hilarious.Continue reading “This Will Only Hurt a Little–Busy Philipps”

Born a Crime–Trevor Noah

This man.  Born in South Africa, raised by a loving but hardheaded faith-driven woman, his father a Swiss-man that he barely had a relationship with because he was white and it was legitimately a crime for them to be family. This was another book that I listened to on audiotape because I got into aContinue reading “Born a Crime–Trevor Noah”

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things—Jenny Lawson

After reading the horror show that is ‘A Simple Favor’ I needed a HUGE laugh and a promise of no incest.  Enter Jenny Lawson.  I had read one of her other books so I knew what I was getting into. The issue I had with this one is simple: I listened to it on audiobookContinue reading “Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things—Jenny Lawson”

This is Me–Chrissy Metz

Classic. After I said I was going to write every day I immediately forgot and here we are four days later. But here we go. SPOILERS TO “THIS IS US” FIRST SEASON.  Now, I knew I was going to like this book immediately because I really like Chrissy Metz as a human. (Not that IContinue reading “This is Me–Chrissy Metz”

I Like You Just the Way I Am–Jenny Mollen

Oh hi there! Just wanted to check in. Say hey. If you’re on instagram you’ve likely seen this smash hit of a human being.  She’s insane. And loveable. And insane.  But like, in a fun way that makes you want to sit near her while she tells you stories in all her twirling chaotic glory. Continue reading “I Like You Just the Way I Am–Jenny Mollen”

Brave–Rose McGowan

This is one of those books that I shove at everyone I meet telling them they need to read it.  Rose spoke with so much love and honesty, and I love how she peeled back the face of Hollywood and ripped into people that deserved it and told her own story without embellishment. There wasContinue reading “Brave–Rose McGowan”

But Enough About Me–Burt Reynolds

I think I’m psychic sometimes.  Or I’m an evil witch who accidentally marks a person for death upon reading their autobiography.  Poor sweet dirty bird Burt Reynolds.  This book was so fun to read and incredibly interesting!  I love a good autobiography these days and I really enjoyed how this sounds how he talked. HisContinue reading “But Enough About Me–Burt Reynolds”

You Deserve a Drink–Mamrie Hart

*Note: This was written early January 2018.* After a dark and gloomy beginning to the year (reading Slaughterhouse Five) I figured it was time to start a book that was guaranteed lightheartedness.  Mamrie is a well-known Youtuber who makes drinks on her channel (called You Deserve a Drink) that are fun and themed and soundContinue reading “You Deserve a Drink–Mamrie Hart”
