waiting on wednesday icon“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

My pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection for this week is:

not afraid of life book coverNot Afraid of Life
By Bristol Palin
Publication date: June 24

Book description from Amazon:

The oldest daughter of Sarah Palin and single mother goes beyond the headlines, offering readers an inside look at her life, her world, and the things that matter most, including her family and the faith that keeps her centered. When her mother became the Republican Vice-Presidential candidate in 2008, Bristol Palin was instantly propelled into the national spotlight, becoming the focus of intense public and national media scrutiny at the age of seventeen.

In Not Afraid of Life, Bristol gives readers an intimate behind-the-scenes look at her life for the first time, from growing up in Alaska to coming of age amid the media and political frenzy surrounding her mother’s political rise; from becoming a single mother while still a teenager to coping as her relationship with her baby’s father crumbled publicly—not once, but twice. Bristol talks about the highs and lows of her appearance on ABC-TV’s Dancing with the Stars, including the aching hours of practice, the biting criticisms, and the thrill of getting to the show’s finals. She speaks candidly of her aspirations for the future and the deep religious faith that gives her strength and inspiration. Plainspoken and disarmingly down to earth, Bristol offers new insight and understanding of who she is and what she values most.

  1. one non-fiction book for today. I have never seen it before

  2. I am sure this would be an interesting read. Her life certainly has not been boring so far.

    • Yeah, I agree with you. It’ll also be interesting to read her perspectives on various issues because most news we get about her is from tabloids and they are greatly distorted!
