    This could alternately be titled, The Rich White Woman's Guide on How to Live as a Rich White Woman in the South. I picked this up from the library a couple of weeks ago, read about 100 pages, and had a lot of thoughts on it. But I never wrote them down, and now the book is due back...

    I?m a bad southern woman. ? I don?t wear a lot of color or patterns, no lipstick, definitely no monograms, and I haven?t a clue how to roller my hair, but I adore Reese and loved listening to her talk about growing up in Nashville. If you listen to the audio, be sure to check ...

    Sweet tea, fried chicken, cheddar biscuits, Bluegrass music and BBQ. These are a few of the things I think about when I think of southern living. Southen hospitality, holiday decorating, monograms, fashion and makeup. These bring back memories of family and friends. Road trips (driving...

    I?ve never been to the South and I?ll admit, it does sound charming. But I thought this book was a mess. I appreciate that Reese was trying to share her memories with us but it cane across as a bit judgmental and the writing was somewhat juvenile. Lots of tidbits about lots of diff...

    This book is pure pleasure. An ode, and love story to southern food, words, heritage and family. Reese is a woman who shares her tales and secrets. A woman of great depth beyond what we see on the screen. We?ve seen her career in production bloom and recently her passion for reading ...

    Reese Witherspoon is one of my favorite actresses, so when I saw she had a book and my library had it I knew I had to check it out. I hate to say it, but to me this is a huge vanity project. The audio book was not much over 2 hours long, the book might have been the better way to go. I...

    Mostly fluff, not much substance. I live in ?The South? and, yes, women like to wear makeup, dress up, entertain, etc and have been raised to do these things. Not sure why stating those well known facts warranted a book. Still, it was an enjoyable audiobook as it was read b...

    Witherspoon's book about southern living covers topics like food, decorating, and getting dressed up, but it doesn't have enough of any one topic to be useful. The recipes are common southern dishes that you've seen a hundred times and probably done better. When she says she scouts fle...

    I enjoy reading about, "The South." The lifestyle, fashion, food, and history fascinates me. I like Reese Witherspoon and her spin on how growing up in the South (Tennessee) influenced her life. This is a coffee-table type of book. It's not exactly a memoir but just her thoughts on ...

    0 stars for the memoire, 3 for the recipes ~random thoughts~ The South is THE BESTEST!!!1 Seriously this book is a huge collection of lists about, mostly, "the south" and how to be a proper lady/host/guest/cook/whatever. Very awkward attempt to advocate about the non-racism...

    This is a charming book that covers everything quintessentially Southern. Realistically, there's absolutely nothing new or super creative here; the recipes are all classic dishes and the information provided will have Southerner's nodding in agreement/understanding and may get a giggle...

    Why did I buy this book? I?ve had such guilt about it since the moment I tossed it in the cart. Love Reese Witherspoon films, she?s a great actress. Cannot stand Reese Witherspoon the hypocritical lying person. Ever since she had her DUI during which she was horribly obnoxious and ...

    This book is so cheerful and made me feel so good and happy that I recommend it for everyone. Her recipes and ideas are fascinating. I am more southern than I realized as I love monograms and decor for holidays. I loved her quote, "Purse on the floor, money out the door!" I hate it whe...

    2.5 Stars. Reese Witherspoon reflects on what sets her apart as a southern woman. She is every bit as sweet as you imagine. I listened to her read the audiobook, which only took a couple hours. There weren?t any juicy life stories in here, so don?t bother if that is what you ar...
