Reese Witherspoon’s grandmother Dorothea always said a combination of beauty and strength made Southern women “whiskey in a teacup”. We may be delicate and ornamental on the outside, she said, but inside, we’re strong and fiery. Reese’s Southern heritage informs her whole life, and she loves sharing the joys of Southern living with practically everyone she meets. She takes the South wherever she goes with bluegrass, big holiday parties, and plenty of Dorothea’s fried chicken.

This is just a handbook for someone who wants to be Southern. She talks about the culture and traditions, and I'm not saying she's wrong, I'm just saying everything she's discussing is super basic; if you're from the South, you know it already.
The book wasn't what I was expecting and I was bored.

Busy Philipps’ autobiographical audiobook offers the same unfiltered and candid storytelling that her Instagram followers have come to know and love, from growing up in Scottsdale, Arizona, and her painful and painfully funny teen years to her life as a working actress, mother, and famous best friend. Busy is the rare entertainer whose impressive arsenal of talents as an actress is equally matched by her storytelling ability, sense of humor, and sharp observations about life, love, and motherhood. Her conversational writing reminds us what we love about her on screens of all sizes.

I am not a Busy fan, really only knew who she was, and more recently that she has a talk show and people really like her, when I bought this book. Now, after listening to her read her memoir, i am a fan.
She's relatable. She makes ME feel like a normal person. So glad I chose to listen! And by the way, I listened almost nonstop.
