Review: We’re Going to Need More Wine by Gabrielle Union

I gave this book a 5 ⭐️ rating! Nothing short of amazing from beginning to end. The entire time that I read the book, I felt like I was talking to my big sister. I’ve always been huge Gabrielle Union fan, so this book for me was the icing on the cake. Every question or thought I’ve had of her from a fans perspective was touched at some point in this book.

I love how real and raw Gabby kept it. Leaving no stones unturned…no matter how much slack she might get in returned. She was extremely vulnerable and that’s really what I like to see from celebrities when they write their own memoirs. This essentially took me to another level of fandom. I wanted to experience most of what she talked about for the first time or all over again if I’d previously done it. And even if I didn’t want to experience it again, I could relate to her many memories. From reading Judy Blume books (and yes, I did purchase ‘Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret.’ to reread and unleash the inner teen in me), to reminiscing on the days of perming my hair (good ‘ol creamy crack) and having a burnt scalp, to my days as an athlete, divorce woes and simply just having the freedom to love myself in the skin that I’m in.

This book was EVERYTHING! It brought me so much joy. Not to mention, Gabrielle/NY and Company also picked up an image of mine last week. Having my photography being published means more to me than Gabrielle will ever know. So for many reasons (and personal joys), this book touched me. Thank you Gabrielle for share your life with the world. Your story is much needed in this world!
