Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I write about books, food, wine and travel. 

Come hang out with me.

The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish

The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish

Did I, a grown adult, get up early this morning (in polar vortex temperatures) and drive 20 minutes so I could have a sparkly @frickindelights doughnut for breakfast with my Saturday read? Yes, yes I did. 🍩📚

THAT, my friends, is called using the advantages of being an adult the way they were ALWAYS INTENDED. 😂

Meanwhile, let’s talk about how 100 percent incredible this book by Tiffany Haddish is. I love Tiffany as a comedian and an actress, and as a person who seems very grounded and down to earth (check out the many pictures of her wearing the same white gown to different events and being completely unapologetic about it, as in her words, she bought it, its an expensive dress, and she’s gonna get her money’s worth out of it.)

I was incredibly excited to dive into this based on that alone, and I am blown away by how much more this book is than a comedian’s memoir. Tiffany writes in a very real, very raw and very honest way. She didn’t hold back in this book. Guns ablazing, she is here telling stories that are real, heart breaking, embarrassing, funny, ridiculous and entirely relatable. I love that this book is written very much in her voice, so I could hear her telling these stories in my head. I love that she didn’t hide or shy away from the dirty, hard, frustrating stories. I love that the book felt like sitting and drinking a bottle of wine and chatting with a friend.

I loved it.

This is a book that is a super fast read, and will leave you wanting more from her. I won’t lie I had to re-watch Girls Trip after just because I wanted to see her and Jada in it after reading some stories of the two of them together during the filming of the movie. I laughed just as much the second time.

Get this book my friends. This is the kind of memoir we all need to be reading.

Happy Saturday!!! 🍩🍩🍩
