If you haven’t read Gabourey Sidibe’s fabulous memoirΒ This Is Just My Face: Try Not To Stare, you should remedy that. Doesn’t matter whether you know her or not, it’ll be like sitting down for a tea and chat with one of the funniest women you can imagine.

And also?

She’s one of us.

Sidibe is a loud, proud book nerd, y’all. Books! Reading! She embraces those things and she’s not afraid to talk about them.

As soon as I finished her memoir over a mocha in a local cafe, having stifled a lot of laughs, I knew it was time to flip through her social media for some good book recs. I wasn’t disappointed.

Get your TBR ready. It’s time to read with Sidibe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you read down that thread, you’ll learn the book is Gillian Flynn’sΒ The Grownup.Β
