Short story- I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it.
Long story- I wanted this to be a life altering, perception changing, empowering book, but it just wasn’t that for me.
I’m not a self-help/memoir reader, so maybe I’m not the target audience for this book, but I had to read this empowering, feminist piece of work everyone on bookstagram was raving about. Im always up for a feminist tirade!
The first 1/4 was great! It was interesting, the stories pulled me in, and it felt relevant and real….after that it all went downhill for me. It was fluff peppered with cute motivational quotes.
This was not a memoir or self help book, it was a book of short stories about Glennon’s life, a book about how she CHOSE to be gay, how she has life figured out, and to achieve the best life you must be selfish, always choosing yourself over everyone else. If you’re not choosing you and your truth, are you even living? Sometimes I like to put my kids or husband first, and that feels good to me and my heart. It doesn’t make me a martyr. Sorry Glennon.
Im probably not the target audience for this book, but I gave it a good solid college try.
If you’re into motivational quotes and want a fast, feel-good read, you’ll love this book!
