Review: WE: A Manifesto For Women Everywhere

Review: WE: A Manifesto For Women Everywhere by Gillian Anderson and Jennifer Nadel

I am not sure what I expected from this book, but it has been eye-opening and positive. I am an occasional reader, and not very fast, so it has taken a while to get through this book in a way that I feel I am absorbing and appreciating. I even found myself taking notes which I rarely do. I plan to read it though a second time now that I know what to expect and made sure I am getting the most from it.

I am at a time in my life I really needed to read/hear the ideas in this book. I am guilty of not putting myself first, not taking care of myself in my frenzy to make sure everyone else’s everything is tended to. I am a 40-something mom with two young kids, who left the workforce to stay home with them. I have second-guessed every decision I’ve made recently and I have been very down on myself as I am in this season of my life. This book really helped me to see my value and had concrete plans to help me address these concerns.

5/5 Stars

Review: Bucky F*cking Dent

Bucky F*cking Dent by David Duchovny

I got this book because I’m a long-time David Duchovny fan from his acting work but found he’s an incredible writer as well. This is a great book, period, not just a “good book by an actor.”
The story is emotional and real, and will have you rooting for the characters. I laughed so hard at times and cried at others. This is a touching father and son tale with baseball as the thing that brings them together, but not how you think it will.
Duchovny is intelligent, articulate and a born story teller.
I can’t wait until his next book.
