Falling For Me by Anna David...Review & Giveaway!

I have just finished up a great read that I am so excited to tell you about today.  Falling for Me by Anna David just came out last week and is a peek into the authors mission to find and recreate herself.  Here is the scoop...

Like most women, whether they’ve chosen the Fortune 500 career path or have had five kids by 35, Anna David wondered if she’d made the right choices. Then she came upon the book Sex and the Single Girl by Helen Gurley Brown, Cosmopolitan’s fearless leader from the mid-sixties to the late nineties. Immediately connecting with Gurley Brown’s unique message of self-empowerment combined with femininity, Anna vowed to use Sex as a lesson plan, venturing out of her comfort zone in the hope of overcoming the fears and insecurities that had haunted her for years. Embarking on a journey both intensely personal and undeniably universal, she becomes adventurous and spontaneous—reviving her wardrobe and apartment, taking French lessons, dashing off to Seville, and whiling nights away with men she never would have considered before. In the process, she ends up meeting the person really worth changing for: herself.



Right away I was sucked into Anna David's journey because she is smart, witty writer.  I wanted to go along for the ride!  I enjoyed her  honesty at her (and other's) perception of her life and how her life should be.  Very interesting!  I also enjoyed how the author used Helen Gurley Brown's book as an inspirational starting point but ultimately becomes her own guide.  This is a great read for strong women!  Pick it up today on Amazon...




I am so pleased to tell you that the publisher, Harper Collins, is giving one lucky RBM reader a copy of Falling for Me by Anna David. Thanks so much to the sponsor and here is how to enter...
