There is nothing like being on a bender with an incredible book you simply cannot stop reading. I have lots stored up (I’m an AVID reader) but I wanted to talk first about Kristen Johnston’s GUTS. Oddly enough, I am talking about addiction, in my case it’s a book addiction and I literally read this piece of honesty and grit in 48 hours. I was completely sucked in from page 1. It is not only honest and forthright about KJ’s spiral into drug abuse and alcoholism, but it’s friggin’ FUNNY. Kristen is totally a broad I could BFFle with and we wouldn’t stop, not for a minute (though anyone around us would be completely over it and bothered, trust). She details her stomach exploding (hence, GUTS) and her road back to recovery. It’s her journey and what a journey it’s been. It’s a quick read and a well written one. Kudos to KJo the smartass, now everyone needs to get a copy! I LOVE THIS BITCH!
