Why I hate Green Beans By Lincee Ray

If there is one thing Lincee Ray has learned over the years, it's that the majority of women on the planet struggle with insecurities. Our skinny jeans mock us. Our just-trying-to-help mothers are just driving us crazy. Our social media feeds taunt us with everyone else's picture-perfect lives. It's enough to send you on a gummy-bear bender while binge-watching Friends reruns and not showering for a week. Lincee knows. She's been there. Right there, in fact. Gummy bears and all.

For every woman who's ever wondered if she's unlovable, uninteresting, or unattractive, Lincee offers her particular brand of hilarious (and hard-hitting) self-reflection. Like a true friend, she shows us that the fastest way to happiness is to embrace ourselves in all our imperfection, trust that God knew what he was doing when he made us, and maybe go buy a new tube of mascara. Walk alongside Lincee as she discovers that her identity is not found in her job, her relationship status, her bank account, or her social circle. It's found in Christ.

Lincee Ray began blogging accidentally when she wrote a recap for the beloved show everyone loves to hate -- The Bachelor. Once her audience reached triple digits, she launched her website, What began as a place for closeted Bachelor watchers to commune and discuss the wonder that is Our Host Chris Harrison slowly morphed into a place where Lincee shares stories of her everyday life.

Lincee's Bachelor recaps later miraculously landed on the desk of an editor at Entertainment Weekly. The woman qecurityuickly deduced that Lincee was a pop culture weirdo who probably watched all the teenybopper shows on The CW. She was right.

Lincee taught herself to say the ABCs backward as a child. It kills at parties. She really does hate green beans and is a little too enthusiastic about Dr Pepper and seasonal-themed Oreos. She also believes it's important to tell your stories -- even the ones that make you seem a little crazy.

My Thoughts...

I wish that someone would tell Lincee that I would LOVE to be her best friend.
I laughed, I cried, I laughed some more. This book is such a refreshing read.
It's what I call an honest, refreshing, must read.
For those of you who say I don't like non-fiction books, you have not read this book yet, I think you will change your mind after reading this one.
Insecurity, as a women we all struggle with it. Lincee with her humor and wit write about that in such away you will NOT put this book down once you open it and start reading.  I will be rereading this book many times, when I need a pick me up.
I gladly give this book 5 stars and I HIGHLY recommend it.
