Another book from my 2018 book list, Give a Girl a Knife is the second memoir I’ve read. Spoiler: I’m kind of digging memoirs!

Sisters First by Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush, from my 2018 book list, is a super cute (and short) book that reminded me of how lucky I am to have an awesome sister. 🙂
