Michelle who runs ‘What is that book about?‘ says: I am one of those people who just absolutely love and appreciate books. I may not like every genre but for the ones that I enjoy, I will not turn down any book. There are so many books out there that are wonderful that so many of us haven’t yet heard of. I always say that there is not an expiration date on them so the best discoveries may be of those that have been written at anytime just waiting to be read.
I decided to create this site because I was inspired by a moment that I had visiting a library. Jokingly, my frequent trips always would be a joke from friends that I would qualify for literary rehab but I finally had a moment that made it all worth it. I was looking up books on the computer when I heard a patron come in ask what was good to read. The person behind the desk said she wasn’t sure and gave her an out of date version of a famous newspaper’s top list. I won’t say but you know who it is. I just looked over and was like, really? You work in a library and can’t pick a book?
I find myself always talking about and recommending books. After chatting with the woman about some great titles that I thought she would enjoy, I said why not make a site where book lovers can chat and connect about books. For the ones who aren’t sure, we can give them some great ideas so they don’t have to miss out.
***Book Review of Women Behaving Badly – Exposing the Truth about Female Friendship.
How many times have you sought out answers about your relationships with women from one of those newsstand magazines or columns that you read in your local paper? After you read the answer, you are left with an answer that makes you feel good for the moment but leaves you with a question mark. Well, after reading this book, it will leave you with a lot more than that. Some people might get mad reading this book because of the brutal honesty but I think the majority will nod with affirmation because they have been there and can relate to many of the experiences. This is not a self-help book or a book that bashes women. It is bold, unapologetic truth that shatters the unspoken status quo of women behaviors involving their relationships with each other.
This book was definitely easy to read. The content was so engaging that you find yourself coasting through. I really admire the author for putting it all there. Her vulnerability and her introspective analysis throughout the book gave the reader much to think about. There is definitely something to be said from learning from your experiences. Drawn from her personal experiences and personal stories from others, it really gives you a firsthand account of truly how many women treat each other behind the cordial facade.
This book highlights the good, the bad and the definitely ugly aspects of what we are not, what we are and what we can be towards each other to acknowledge the truth and sustain meaningful relationships that complement our lives. Trust me, nothing was sugar-coated, fluffed or words minced. If there were seven deadly sins about women, then this book would define them. This book is definitely for all women from all walks of life. Once you read it, you will definitely look at your relationships differently.
