Michelle Obama To Release Memoir

becomingFormer First Lady Michelle Obama has announced she will be releasing a memoir later this year.

Entitled Becoming, the book, published by Crown Publishing Group, is due to be released November 13th, according to Entertainment Weekly

The former FLOTUS announced on Twitter “Writing BECOMING has been a deeply personal experience. I talk about my roots and how a girl from the South Side found her voice. I hope my journey inspires readers to find the courage to become whoever they aspire to be. I can’t wait to share my story.”

In a release from the publisher, they wrote “Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her — from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it — in her own words and on her own terms.”

 

Get your pre-order ready, folks.

New Books from Gillian Flynn

Thanks to her huge success with this year’s bestseller Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn is now set to publish two more books — one adult and one young adult novel.

According to The New York Times, Crown Publishers will publish the adult novel, which will be her fifth. This comes after her huge year with Gone Girl as one of 2012’s biggest hits, besides the Fifty Shades books.

A fourth book is also in the works and expected to be published in 2015. No dates have been set for Flynn’s fifth novel or the YA novel. Publishers are also keeping mum on plot details, saying only that the adult book “will be in the tradition of her darkly brilliant and gripping previous books.”

I loved Gone Girl, and can’t wait to read more from Gillian Flynn. What say you?
