This was good, for what it was. Entertaining to flip through, but for me not a book I‘m going to read word for word. It did help me accomplish my 2019 #goodreadsreadingchallenge though and get one more book off my #TBRReads #WinterGames #TeamNutcracker

I was looking for a short audiobook to listen to while on the treadmill and this fit the bill.

Exactly as advertised - Reese shares her southern values as well as recipes.

Cute.

Also - Happy Thanksgiving!

This was a cute, enjoyable, wise book about growing up in and continuing to love the South and all the stories and traditions that go along with it. Listened to Reese Witherspoon narrate her own book 😄which made it that much better.

People think that caring about silly things like cooking or fashion is mutually exclusive with serious politics. But my mother and grandmother and their friends taught me that finding pleasure at home, whether it was in a family dinner, or a book club, or a backyard barbecue, can give us the strength to go out into the world and do incredible things.

#RedRoseSeptember #SeptemberSins Reese Witherspoon is my favorite all around #Entertainer / she‘s an avid reader, a kickass mom, a gifted actress, a style icon and the type of chick you could hang with on a Friday night over some #ChippyTea or #WingsAndWhiskey 🥃 Another book on my virtual TBR

I listened to the audiobook I borrowed from Cloudlibrary , unfortunately I had no access to the PDF file with recipes etc. So I felt like I was missing half the book. No photos either. I enjoyed Reese Witherspoon ‘s narration but I hope to find the actual book at my next book sale

Joanne1 I pull this off the shelf often during a quiet weekend or evening shift at the library. It‘s a great book to flick through. Totally get that an audio version wouldn‘t work that well. 4mo
marleed This is really best in full color physical book form. 4mo

I got to look through a signed copy of this at B&N right after it came out & it is a truly beautiful, if expensive, coffee table book. I needed a new audiobook & saw this on Libby yesterday. My thoughts: 1) It was way harder to access a pdf supplement for a Libby book than I expected! 2)She comes off as totally down to🌎 here. 3)This is really an etiquette/lifestyle manual more than a cookbook/memoir. Somewhere between a pick & a so-so #24B4Monday

I didn't expect to finish this pretty coffee table book in a day, but it's a very light read. The photos are vivid and lovely, very IG living-my-best-life 24/7. Surprisingly few recipes but i look forward to trying some. Her nostalgia for her childhood and family traditions feels familiar though i don't necessarily equate it all with being southern. Her version is much more affluent and genteel then mine 😂 more in the comments ⬇ #mommyreads

alanacristin This is by far the whitest book I've read recently. The glossy, idealized version of Southern tradition makes me uncomfortable for not addressing at all that it was built upon a deep history of oppression, violence, and prejudice. Clearly celebrating family traditions doesn't have to unpack all of history but a very privileged white lady flying a banner of southern pride in 2018 seems to necessitate an acknowledgeb of these complex feelings at least 7mo
alanacristin The random shout-outs to successful Black woman from the south felt a bit like trying to dodge these critiques. That could be due to editing but felt awkward regardless. That said, her enthusiasm & joy for gracious hostessing feels genuine & is contagious. I relate to all her preaching on manners. And singing the praises of beloved grandparents is always welcome. I think my mom will enjoy reading this and it's very feel good if you're the choir. 7mo
alanacristin Oh and I read reviews criticizing her accommodations for vegetarians but really, honey, she's a progressive southerner in that regard! I've been to many a family function and eaten potato salad on a bun as even the veggie sides are made with meat 😂 She's alright, bless her heart. 7mo
Caterina Thanks for the long, interesting review!! I'm also from the South, so I found it particularly interesting. I think reading about a more affluent, very white Southern childhood would drive me up a wall right now, but maybe when I've been living in Berkeley for a while I'll start feeling sentimental. 😂😂 Also my dad's vegetarian and a pastor and the struggle is so real, potato salad/coleslaw all the time!! 😂😂 7mo
alanacristin @Caterina yes, coleslaw! 😂 what i found really interesting was that she didn't refer to her family during childhood as well-off. But from a photo it appears both her grandparents had masters degrees, their house in Nashville oozed money, and her dad was a surgeon. Nothing wrong with any of that but it just wasn't addressed as being major factors in her version of Southern living. still, i enjoyed reading it! Very sunny ☀ 7mo

I‘m surprised how much I loved this book! From the gorgeous cover to all of Reese‘s tidbits about growing up in the south, beautiful pictures and yummy recipes, this book made me feel warm and fuzzy inside and proud of my southern heritage. The negative reviews I‘ve seen on Goodreads mostly say it doesn‘t flow, it‘s too sappy, she‘s fake, etc, but I got the opposite from this. It made her seem more down-to-earth. 5⭐️ Recommended!

#nonfiction2019 #somethingwithpictures the pictures in this book were stunning!! This book is a bit of everything: memoir, recipes, and southern lifestyle guide! I liked the memoir bits a lot! The lifestyle advice felt a bit superficial/aristocratic, but Reese is so genuine, caring, gives back, so she can pull this off in a sweet way. This is a lovely warm and friendly ode to the south! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I don‘t think I was the target audience for this book. I‘m not southern, so I can‘t appreciate what she‘s saying. I‘m not a social person and don‘t host dinner parties. I liked hearing her talk about her book club. All the chapters were very short and not very detailed.

Does anyone know how to look at PDF‘s with Libby? She kept mentioning the recipes on the pdf.. but 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ how to access.

Quick read. Reese seems very down to earth and its refreshing. Guess I shouldn't assume all celebrities have lost base with their humble beginnings. Listened to this book on a cross state trip, arrived at my destination and ordered chicken and biscuits. ***Audiobook may contain subliminal messages???***

I have always liked Reese. I enjoyed her version of Southern culture. This is a coffee table type of book without a ton of substance (as far as her personal life goes) but I enjoyed it all the same. The recipes weren't really my style, so I skimmed over most of those. I did love the section on the book club. ☕️

Such a fantastic mix of stories and recipes. Reese Witherspoon is amazing. I love how she‘s such a huge advocate for strong women and this book is a fantastic example of where her strength of character comes from. Once you add in all the delicious southern recipes, this book is a knockout. It‘s been on my to read list and now it‘s on my to buy list so that I can always have it on hand.

This one is an official DNF. I tried, because I‘m low on nonfiction this year, but I got to page 97, and just couldn‘t handle another monogram. Also Witherspoon‘s attempts to show a nicely integrated, happy South felt facile. #howjessreadsin2019
