As I scrolled down my Instagram feed weeks ago, I saw Gabrielle Union running into a room with a box full of books. “I am an author!” she exclaimed. Instantly, I was distracted by my children but I thought, I must go back to her Instagram page. I make time during the week to watch three television shows and Being Mary Jane is one of them, so I definitely wanted to support Gabrielle Union by reading her book. One week later, I had a rare moment when my children were not using my phone. Mind you, I only had a little more than 1% battery to get information on We’re going to Need More Wine. I clicked into Gabrielle’s Instagram bio and I began clicking until I found what I was looking for. Hard copy book, YES! Audible, YES! And book signing, YES! I immediately contacted a friend who did the same and we waited with anticipation for the October 17th release.
On October 17th after my 5AM work out class, my audible book became available and I couldn’t press that play button fast enough. I must say, I LOVE THIS BOOK! So much so that I am currently listening and reading “We’re Going to Need More Wine” for a second time. Why? Because Gabrielle opens up and allows us to get to know her on so many levels. I laughed, had many jaw dropping moments, and affirmations. Personally, I valued many instances where I could totally relate. Wow, that happened to me too and you, Gabrielle, are the first person to say it.
I listened to the 7 hour audible in my car, at work, during lunch, I just couldn’t stop listening. My husband was drawn in as well as he pretended to watch the Celtics and Cavaliers play but would yell out hey what did she say? While cooking dinner, my hard copy arrived so I started reading and finished the book. I am so excited about the Real Life Book Tour, I look forward to sharing my photos and please get this book!
