This memoir is a force to be reckoned with. Rachael opens up her heart and soul in this fast paced, hard to put down memoir. I think my mind and heart are recouping from what an amazing life Rachael has lived and is living. She’s a woman warrior that won’t let life’s crap keep her down. No matter where you are at in life, her memoir will have something just for you.
The last time my favorite color was pink was first grade. After that I abhorred that color till recently. I’m a tomboy and have always liked greens and blues. Pinks or reds were out of the question, though being a blonde red is a good color on me.
The other day in the shower I was thinking how I need to just let myself like the color pink. I can still be more tomboyish and like pink. It’s ok for me to want to be fem even if I don’t feel I am.
Even as a little girl wearing frilly dresses I didn’t feel girlie. I felt like I was playacting. I don’t wear makeup either except for lipgloss. I wore some makeup in junior high through high school, but seeing how it ages women makes me not want to cake it on.
How to feel womanly, like girlie things like pretty stationary, purses (yes, a big weakness of mine), but still be my jeans and fun t-shirt kind of woman? Any suggestions, or tips is appreciated. Any other ladies in the same boat?
When I saw the title it piqued my interest. I love poetry and thought for sure the topic would mean the poetry would be powerful. Alas this was not the book for me. I understand wanting to be edgy, in your face, bold, blunt and a sprinkle of funny, but I had to force myself to finish this book. I don’t like wanting to DNF a book.
This book of poetry and commentary is about the topics of Trump, Hilary, politics and feminism. I love poetry, but I think I need to stick with more classical poetry that doesn’t sound worse than a truck driver. I know the author is just trying to make a loud statement; it’s just not my preferred style of poetry.
I received this digital ARC from Edelweiss for free in exchange for my honest feedback. If you enjoy potty humor, swearing and crass poetry then you may love Grabbing Pussy by Karen Finley.
