BlameJennyJane Oh my gosh, @hermyknee , I didn‘t even see the log! I think maybe I stopped digging before I got to it! I‘m out of town this weekend but I‘ll check when we get home Sunday! The box is still on the counter. That‘s what I get for having my son help me. You did way too much! 7mo

So, as it turns out, the A Million Little Pieces scandal really stuck with me. I read it back in 2006 and was pretty miffed when I found out he lied / embellished so much. A Piece of Cake was published that year by Random House, so I decided to do a little research to make sure I could trust Cupcake. Turns out, I can. And James Frey is an ass.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/ew.com/article/2006/02/24/cupcake-brown-wants-piece...

BlameJennyJane Or as Cupcake says, “just a sober, lying son of a bitch”. 😂 I was irate over the Frey lie myself and I did read Brown‘s memoir back then and absolutely loved it. She is as real as real gets. Great article! Thanks for sharing the link! (edited) 7mo
hermyknee @BlameJennyJane yes! Oh and I‘m going to the post office on Monday to send out your #readinthenewyear giveaway box - hope you like everything! 😊 7mo

Happy New Year & Welcome 2019!
I am so floored and inspired by the participation in #ReadintheNewYear 💙I had such a good time ringing in 2019 with a book in my hand. I hope you all had a wonderful time, too!

Which books are you most looking forward to in 2019? I‘m looking forward to reading Michelle Obama‘s Becoming 💖

What are your reading goals this year? I‘ve set my Goodreads goal at only 24 books this year. My Year of Nonfiction! 💛

I liked this one, tho the story is somewhat slight. This mostly wordless graphic novel is about a woman who survives breast cancer but then loses her boyfriend and her job because of the mastectomy. She then accidentally joins a burlesque troupe and comes into her own. Sounds heavy, but the whimsical art and the effervescent personality of the protagonist bring a lightness to it.

First book finished in the new year! #readinthenewyear 😄

RaimeyGallant You're on fire! I've got 3 at the halfway mark. 8mo

Mehso-so

For some reason I expected more from this book. The whole thing was really similar to the side stories from the Orange is the New Black TV show, and that's about it. I also feel like a lot of the characters storylines were unresolved... maybe it's just me, though.

As you can see, I'm having a wild and crazy night #ReadintheNewYear 😂 I hope everyone is having a great night, be safe, and Happy New Year!

BarbaraBB Happy New Year, Rachel ❤️. I also felt underwhelmed with the book. 8mo
AnneCecilie Happy new year 🎆 8mo
Cinfhen Didn‘t the book just fizzle out by the middle... I hated the ending and I‘m REALLY NOT a fan of Kushner‘s prose. Meh 8mo
Rachel.Rencher @Cinfhen I kept thinking something intense was going to happen, but yeah it fizzled which was so disappointing. And I was so frustrated by what she did at the end... couldn't wait for it to be over. 😅 8mo
