Your Next Read: Big Friendship by Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman

A book all about friendship? Say less. I had seen this read all over bookstagram this summer and finally caved and bought it a couple weeks ago. I struggle sometimes with non-fiction, self-helpish type books, but this is not at all what you would expect it to be.

Okay, I am hopping on the Emily Giffin fan train. I’ve seen her name on the Internet before and I finally got around to reading one of her novels. Of course, I chose the one that took place in Nashville. I didn’t know what to expect for this read, but it certainly wasn’t what unfolded in the story. All I Ever Wanted touches on sexual assault, rape and racism, all in one story. It also reminded me of how much I do not miss high school and how evil teenagers can be.

Why am I just now reading this read? I'm an avid lover of Miranda Priestly and all that comes with The Devil Wears Prada, and Emily gets the spin-off no one expected. It is really fun to see a different side of her because well she wasn't exactly the nice guy in The Devil Wears Prada.

I know we're walking into a lot of unexpected situations, but God will provide us with not only instruction but also provision. Read more below! PS, sorry it's been a while. Took a bit of a break after finishing grad school!
