Why Every Girl Should Read Michelle Obama’s Book BECOMING

This year America’s former First Lady, Michelle Obama published her unique and female-enpowering memoir titled BECOMING. Although, as with most celebrities, I don’t completely agree with all of her opinions, I really enjoyed reading her book and learning more about what made her and President Obama the driven powerhouse couple that they are.

And that was what I was expecting. Before reading the memoir, I read several reviews that said it was just that, but the book also came with some surprises.

In her 3-part life story, Michelle walks you through the struggles she went through to get to where she is today, both as an African-American but also as a female on a male-dominated world. She talks about heartbreak and triumph and love and her own personal struggles. She talks about what it was like to loose several of her mentors and close friends. She talks about how hard it was to be a mom and the First Lady at the same time.

My favorite part about the whole book is how Michelle doesn’t make the book about her. She brings in people who were close to her and some who weren’t and even you, and she talks about how hard she wanted to work to make our world a better place.

Although one could argue that Michelle brings too much politics into her book, I personally believe that she had a good balance; she wasn’t overly persuasive with it and even talks avout how much she HATES the political division in America today.

For any girl that wants to be a part of the working world, and even those that don’t, Michelle’s book is inspiring because her story encourages girls to go after their passions, whatever they are.

What is one of your favorite inspiring books? Have you read Michelle Obama’s Book? If so what were your thoughts? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy Reading,

  1. I live in the UK but we still hear a lot about American politics and the Obamas. I’m not sure whether this is something I would have typically been interested in reading, but I think her stance on things and her positive power could make it quite an engaging, poignant read so I’ll keep it in mind! Glad you enjoyed it πŸ™‚
