's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: 2018, favorites

To be honest, when I first heard about @michelleobama’s upcoming memoir, Becoming, I passed it off. Politics bore me, probably because I don’t have a good understanding of them. But, as I kept seeing promotional material appearing around #bookstagram, I had a tiny tug in my heart that demanded I pay attention. So on release day, I drove a couple hours, to our nearest Target, and bought myself a copy.

It was a dense read, forcing me to read slowly - something I don’t normally love in a book - but this was just written so well, that I relished getting to savor it. I loved every single page of this book and I dearly miss the Obama Administration in the White House. Right now, Mrs. Obama’s advice rings as true as the day she said it, “When they go low, we go high.”

Do yourself a favor and buy a copy of this one...don’t wait for the library hold to come in! It’s worth every penny.
