Whiskey in a Teacup: What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love & Baking Biscuits Reviews
Why did I buy this book? I’ve had such guilt about it since the moment I tossed it in the cart. Love Reese Witherspoon films, she’s a great actress. Cannot stand Reese Witherspoon the hypocritical lying person. Ever since she had her DUI during which she was horribly obnoxious and rude to the police officer and pulled the - Don’t you know who I am! - line, which is always so disgusting. Who she truly is doesn’t really square up with her carefully cultivated, cutesy little image of a sweet, well ...more
It took me, what, a week to listen to the last 15 minutes of this book? Yeah, I’m not gonna rate this since I am sooooo not the target audience.

I purchased this book from Amazon to read. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Whiskey In A Teacup by Reese Witherspoon. What a great insight into Reese's world! Everything from how to hot roll your hair to what to put on your dinner party table. An amazing book that will definitely be on my list for Christmas gifts for all the women in my family!

3.5/5. While listening to Reese narrate her book was great, there was a lot of “refer to the PDF”, so I think this one would probably be better if you read a hard copy.
Interesting read about Reese & she is the audiobook narrator.
Not sure about one thing: multiple times she called herself an “actor” vs. “actress”. Did anyone else notice that too?
