I received a free copy of Real American: A Memoir in exchange for a honest review. All opinions are my own.
If there’s anything we can all agree on- it’s the fact that there is so much going on in America right now! From social issues, natural disasters, to just life in general- the world right now is #prettycray. These last few weeks have been the perfect time to snuggle up with a good cup of tea in hand with a good book- Real American- A Memoir by Julie Lythcott-Haims.
There are some memoirs that I have not been a fan of- some seem so scripted that it’s hard to tell what the Author is really trying to depict through a number of pages. That was not that case with this one- reading this book was amazing! Seeing on paper the transformation and road to self- acceptance through racism in America was not only realistic, but very well written as well. One thing I love about this book is how the author is so transparent, sharing not only real life experiences, but opinions as well throughout. I also love how it is written- it is an easy read but is written in a way that leaves you hanging- always wanting to read the next page for more information!
You have a chance to read this book to! Better yet- you can get it for free through the giveaway below! This giveaway ends this Friday, September 29th so be sure to enter soon!
