It is Wednesday, which means it is time for my “Waiting on Wednesday”. “Waiting on Wednesday”, is a meme originally hosted by “Breaking in the Spine“.
Today I will be sharing with you the books I am looking forward to in January!
Brave by Rose McGown
Release Day: January 30, 2018
Synopsis:“My life, as you will read, has taken me from one cult to another. BRAVE is the story of how I fought my way out of these cults and reclaimed my life. I want to help you do the same.” -Rose McGowan
A revealing memoir and empowering manifesto – A voice for generations
Rose McGowan was born in one cult and came of age in another, more visible cult: Hollywood.
In a strange world where she was continually on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged with every script, role, public appearance, and magazine cover. The Hollywood machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and identity and marketing them for profit.
Hollywood expected Rose to be silent and cooperative and to stay the path. Instead, she rebelled and asserted her true identity and voice. She reemerged unscripted, courageous, victorious, angry, smart, fierce, unapologetic, controversial, and real as f*ck.
BRAVE is her raw, honest, and poignant memoir/manifesto—a no-holds-barred, pull-no-punches account of the rise of a millennial icon, fearless activist, and unstoppable force for change who is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, dismantle the concept of fame, shine a light on a multibillion-dollar business built on systemic misogyny, and empower people everywhere to wake up and be BRAVE . (Goodreads)
I am a huge fan of Rose McGown. I loved her when she starred in the WB’s “Charmed”!! I am very interested in reading about her life and how she rose to fame in Hollywood. Especially since she has been in the media quite a bit lately.
Zenith By Sasha Alseberg and Lindesy Cummings
Release Day: January 16, 2018
Most know Androma Racella as the Bloody Baroness, a powerful mercenary whose reign of terror stretches across the Mirabel Galaxy. To those aboard her glass starship, Marauder, however, she’s just Andi, their friend and fearless leader.
But when a routine mission goes awry, the Marauder‘s all-girl crew is tested as they find themselves in a treacherous situation and at the mercy of a sadistic bounty hunter from Andi’s past.
Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a ruthless ruler waits in the shadows of the planet Xen Ptera, biding her time to exact revenge for the destruction of her people. The pieces of her deadly plan are about to fall into place, unleashing a plot that will tear Mirabel in two.
Andi and her crew embark on a dangerous, soul-testing journey that could restore order to their shipor just as easily start a war that will devour worlds. As the Marauder hurtles toward the unknown, and Mirabel hangs in the balance, the only certainty is that in a galaxy run on lies and illusion, no one can be trusted. (Goodreads)
I am excited to finally read this. I heard so many mixed reviews about this book. There are either people who feel like this book is really good and there are others that absolutely hate it. I was extremely shocked by how many people actually hated this book on Amazon. This should definitely be an interesting read, if not for the content at least to cure my curiosity about this book.
What books are you excited for this year? Are any of them coming out in January?
