Since I am a list maker at my core, I thought I'd put together a little round-up today, and then - hopefully - we can all offer up reviews, etc. Sound fun?
In alphabetical order:
Black Heels to Tractor Wheels by Ree Drummond/ The Pioneer Woman (Isn't it about time for this movie to come out?!)
Motherhood Comes Naturally (and Other Vicious Lies) by Jill Smokler of Scary Mommy (also, Confessions of a Scary Mommy)
That's a lot of writing going on! And these are just the ones from my blog reader that have come out in the last year or so, not to mention the ones that are being written/published now (like hers and theirs). What did I forget?
So far, I have read Black Heels, Bloom and YHL. I loved all three for (obvious) different reasons. Pretty much all the other ones are on my "list." (You know, the one that keeps growing and never gets check marks.)
If you've read any of these, I'd love for you to leave some feedback in the comments here. Is it worth a read? Is it a must-buy or a library kinda book? Go ahead, be honest. I can pretty much guarantee none of those big-time bloggers are going to find us here. :)
P.S. Have I mentioned that I really want to write a book? I do. Looking at that list makes me feel both inspired/motivated by their success and discouraged/stressed that I "don't have a story to tell" or "all my stories have already been written." I gotta get over that. Any tips? How about ideas for what to write about?
