It‘s been a rough day, so I checked this out from library and read it to Bailey who likes to chase bees. She didn‘t seem impressed, but I found it delightful. 🤣🤣🐝🐝

Smrloomis Sorry about the rough day but this looks like a good distraction 💕 3w

Like her memoir, Dolly‘s responses to her readers are very conversational. Reading them feels like talking to an old friend. Her advice is very practical and real, but she‘s never judgmental. She seems to really understand what her readers are asking and gives relatable advice.

I have never read the Dear Sugar column before. I find it annoying that people are apparently writing to her with real problems, and she always responds with some long rambling story about her own life, and no real advice. The book started to feel repetitive after just a few short chapters.

For #ThreeListThursday, I‘m sharing my 3 favorite nonfiction books and explaining their impact on me. I tagged one of the books that I mentioned. I didn‘t realize these books had such an impact on me but once I started sharing about these books, I couldn‘t stop. I still have regrets about how I behaved during my breakup and I‘ve had a hard time forgiving myself for it but it was a long time ago so I‘m moving forward and trying to forget about it.

dabbe I am completely humbled by your willingness to share with us your heartfelt struggles. I'm also so glad that you are now in a good place of peace! Thanks so much for sharing. 💚💙💚 1mo

Almost 4⭐️
~
This equally humorous and heartbreaking memoir is told in the format of Questions & Answers (essays) supposedly taken from the author's job as a queer advice columnist. Flashbacks to Brammer's youth in rural Oklahoma and his early experiences as a gay man serve as the packaging for most of his advice. I was quite moved by his honesty, vulnerability, and insight, but I think a more standard format would have served his story better.

Starting this today. This is not my usual genre but I‘m in the mood for something different.

Number 30-picked without reading the blurb
I know the author wrote Wild, which I haven't read, just randomly picked this since it was an audiobook. I find out its a selection of her advice column 'Dear Sugar'! Interesting questions and answers. Can't say I agree with all her ideas. But worth reading! Lots of intimate questions, lots of people struggling with so much.⬇️

BarbaraBB I read Wild and liked it but didn‘t know she wrote columns 2mo
