Becoming – by Michelle Obama

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reading this book honestly feels like you’re sitting over coffee with Michelle and she’s telling you her story. No punches pulled, no prettifying things that might not go over well. This is truly her story in her words, as only she can tell it.

If you come into this expecting salacious “belowstairs” gossip, you’ll be disappointed. This book is truly an entry into knowing and understanding the woman who had captured the hearts of a world to become easily one of that world’s most influential people.

I loved her before I started reading. I love her even more now. The only thing I didn’t like was when it ended. I had so hoped that she had somehow found a magical way to keep writing the book so that we continued to watch this powerhouse leave her mark.
