Eat Cake. Be Brave. by Melissa Radke is a delightful read that will make you giggling and smile all along the way.
Seriously, I liked this book! It was sugary sweet, delightfully fun and just all around great. I had not heard of Melissa Radke before, but I did want to sink my teeth into some comedic biographies. This woman is just the kind of girl I want to read about! She’s funny, she is real and has an interesting story to read about. I gotta say, she’s right. I love her now! She seems like the kind of woman I’d want to be friends with.
This woman wrote a fantastic book that is all about dealing with life, insecurities, following your dreams and being comedic while doing it. She hasn’t had the easiest life – things have gone wrong, and that’s totally okay. But she came out on the other side of it, and managed to make light of it! She adopted two children, she’s made a book, she has a great marriage and is doing her best and living her life. I dig it. I like books like this that feel real but still teach you something.
My negative for this book: There’s some more stuff I wanted to read. Melissa will bring up stuff (her marriage wasn’t amazing for some of it… but why?) and then never discuss it. If you’re gonna bring up the dirty laundry, you kinda gotta air it. Maybe not in excessive detail, but I was actually curious how they overcame the bad hump in their relationship. How?! Why?! Give me advice girl, because you seem to have a good head on your shoulders and you write it well.
Overall, this book is a great comedic biography to pick up if you’re seeking something lighter to read.
Four out of five stars.
