Open Book

I read two nonfiction books pretty close together. Apparently I’m trying to make up for reading none before that this year. This book came recommended from numerous people and pop stars/reality stars are always intriguing to me, although I do not watch much reality tv apart from a few years watching The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise back in the day.

Open Book by Jessica Simpson was great! I honestly never really followed her or her career much, but she was a staple in the pop music of my teenage years. And it’s always entertaining to read about the lives of celebrities – hers and those around her – behind closed doors. She really was an open book, talking about her struggles with past abuse, issues mixing family and business, hard relationships, and personal vices. Her overall message to women and girls is a great one to love yourself for who you are. That’s something we all struggle with.

I wouldn’t say it was too serious and it kept me entertained. Definitely check it out, even if you weren’t/aren’t a Jessica Simpson super fan.
