Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life | Jenna Bush Hager, Barbara Pierce Bush
Funny and poignant personal stories and reflections from former first daughters Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush. Born into a political dynasty, Jenna and Barbara Bush grew up in the public eye. As small children, they watched their grandfather become president; just twelve years later they stood by their father's side when he took the same oath. They spent their college years being trailed by the Secret Service and chased by the paparazzi, with every dumb teenage mistake making national headlines. But the tabloids didn't tell the whole story of these two young women forging their own identities under extraordinary circumstances. In this book they take readers on a revealing, thoughtful, and deeply personal tour behind the scenes of their lives, with never-before-told stories about their family, their adventures, their loves and losses, and the special sisterly bond that keeps them sane.

Had an amazing day with Jenna and Barbara Bush at the Bush Presidential Library in College Station, TX, as they signed their new storybook “Sisters First”!

I loved so much about this book. Jenna and Barbara took turns writing chapters throughout the book, and while most of the book was sweet, they did not shy away from talking about some less-than-flattering moments and tough topics.

It‘s not often you get to hear from this side of a politics family. I really enjoyed this. Their love for each other and their family is so apparent.

I was so very pleasantly surprised by Jenna and Barbara‘s book, Sisters First.

They retold some very funny and also insightful childhood stories. I found myself laughing out loud at some of their memories.

And then, of course, crying over their losses. You may not agree with their family‘s political views 100%, but do you know the full story?

Very well done, and I highly recommend this memoir.

Reading this one to prep for an interview for my magazine with Jenna Bush Hager. It‘s interesting to learn more about the lives of the “First twins”.

I listened to the audiobook and really liked these ladies. They really seem to feel blessed by their family relationships.

Easy read although I would've preferred a bit more cohesion. It jumped back and forth so much in terms of topics and time periods.

1. Driving. Always driving.
2. Overdrive (library)
3. Sped up. Not a lot but enough so it's not a slog.
4. My favorite narrator is typically the author.
5. Nope. 😂

The tagged book is my current audio book.

Jess7 Yay! #overdrive and #libraries! I absolutely love listening to #audiobooks using overdrive! I simply refuse to purchase an audiobook bc it‘s just one of those things I‘ll never re listen to and overdrive is a great solution! 2y
Jess7 I also have listened to a free #audible audiobook from Kaye (thanks @Kaye for sharing again by the way) but having now used both - I do very much prefer the way overdrive‘s set up to audible. 2y
Kaye @jess7 no problem on the free book. I don‘t mind a bit. The price of audiobooks is a killer for me too but I do relisten a lot. Let‘s just say I need to keep my brain occupied continually so audiobooks help that a lot. I know it‘s cheaper from the library so it‘s a constant battle for me of whether to keep an Audible account or not. I change my mind a lot about it. 🤔 2y
jbhops @Jess7 yeah, I have a hard time buying audio books. I also will never listen to the same one again. Overdrive is so easy! 2y
jbhops @Kaye I always think an audible account would be helpful when nothing is available that I want to listen to. I just love having something available if I'm bored while driving. If 2y

Yes they grew up more privileged than most but they really are remarkable women. "We were expected to be good people, to care about others, and be responsible." Imagine if everyone lived by these expectations. ?

🎧😋#Audiobook #BooksWithDinner

This breezy & insightful little memoir was a delight!
It offered a refreshing &enjoyable look into their shared & separate experiences in everything fr being followed by the secret service since childhood to what it's like moving & living in the 🏛 & even dating when your dad's the president!
Yet through it all, their strong sisterly bond & tight knit family ties have continued to serve as their steady anchor. 👭

MarticaMustRead Oh yeah, and my dinner at the Cheesecake Factory wasn't half bad either😋🍝🍗😉❣ 2y
Bklover I have to admit I was racing past your review to see where you got that yummy looking food! What is that!? I love Cheesecake Factory! 2y
MarticaMustRead LOL😄... @Bklover it's from their current 'Special Menu ' & it's called Chicken Riesling- Chicken Breast, Mushrooms, Bacon, Onions and Garlic in a White Wine Riesling Cream Sauce with Buttered Parmesan Pasta.😋👍 2y
BookMaven407 Yummy! I'd also like to read the book. 👍 2y
Bklover Well it looks delicious!! 2y

??? #Audiobook #CurrentListen

Had to put a pause on my listening of "The Force" yesterday because I got notified that my hold for the tagged #Audiobook was ready and downloaded. ?

I find Presidential children sort of fascinating & look forward to listening them tell stories & sharing their experiences in their own voices.

Plus it's a very short listen (just over 6 hrs), I started it yesterday and have just under 1 more hr to go!?

I did not expect this book to be as good as it was! I even cried a few times. Like, real tears! Dog eared a few pages, wrote some quotes down and have already passed it along for others to read! SO GOOD!!

I highly enjoyed listening to this on audio. Laura Bush reads the intro, then Jenna and Barbara take turns telling small pieces of their story. It‘s not done in order but skips around in time. They talk about many different experiences, from dealing with Secret Service being a part of their lives , to the day of 9/11 and how each of them reacted at the time. The also tell of many private and personal times with their families behind scenes. 5🌟

emilyhaldi Sounds good!! Love this picture 👯‍♂️ 2y
Kaye @Emilyhaldi Yes, it‘s really good. You get to know the girls‘ personalities and their family a lot better. They talk about lots of topics , some funny and some sad. Quite an interesting book. I‘m glad I got the audio version since they both read their own parts. (edited) 2y
