Welcome to the Club
Welcome to your new favorite book club…ok so maybe we haven’t hit it off just yet, but I assure you this will be fun.
So why autobiographies…. well for a number of reasons. One, people are weird and interesting and they love to talk about themselves. We’ve all had the run in where we meet someone and thirty minutes later they’re telling you about how in high school all the girls hated them and they only got along with the boys and there dad was real strict and now their husband is real strict too and yada yada yada…wait what’s your name again.
Two, people make for good stories, especially celebrities and crazy people, which go hand and hand because I think that most celebrities are crazy. For anyone out there who believes in the bull that says, hey…these people are just like me, theyr’e not! You might follow them on Instagram, but you’re not friends…so let’s read about them and then nicely talk about them behind their backs…wait, maybe we are really friends. This sounds like we are friends.
Last, Everyone wants to tell their story and share their opinion…especially rich people. Us regular folks don’t get book deals, that’s what Facebook is for, but any celebrity with a little following gets a deal whether they deserve it or not…they get to tell their story and build their “brand”…I am using air quotes. The ability to use literature as a marketing platform shouldn’t be taken lightly. So lets take a peek behind their curtain. They are begging for it and they like it, whether they admit it or not.
Now for the rules of Autobiography Book Club…there are no rules. Jump in at anytime. Start with the intro and work your way through the books….skip the ones that don’t interest you…read once a month or just read whenever you can. That’s the best part, you can stop and start whenever you want.
Our first book for the month of February is The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish. If you don’t know Tiff, then you’re about to get acquainted. She is a comedian, a down to earth girl with a crazy upbringing that will inspire anyone to follow their dreams and over come any obstacle. It’s a quick funny read and perfectly timely as Ms. Haddish was recently received a lot of buzz for her role in Girls Trip. I think you’ll like it so check it out, however you like to read…. and check back 1st part of March where we will discuss The Last Black Unicorn and reveal the next book.
Let me know what you think as you read along and make sure check back in March and we’ll talk about The Last Black Unicorn and reveal our next book. Happy reading!
