Hey Everyone! Back in the early 2000’s I used to read an online column called Jeannette Walls Delivers The Scoop. This was before entertainment news was so accessible and before Facebook was such an up to the minute “news” source. I really enjoyed reading her column so I was bummed when she stopped writing it in order to pursue writing novels full time. She went on to write her novel/memoir The Glass Castle in 2006 and I scooped it up right away. This was a memoir about her unconventional life and her very interesting family. I really enjoyed it! Fast forward to now and they have turned her novel into a movie! It stars Naomi Watts, Woody Harrelson and Brie Larson. I always say read the book first, but hey if you don’t that’s ok. It is still highly rated and is currently ranked at #20 for the Most Read on Amazon. Check out the movie trailer, book synopsis and the purchase link below!

MORE THAN SEVEN YEARS ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST
The perennially bestselling, extraordinary, one-of-a-kind, “nothing short of spectacular” (Entertainment Weekly) memoir from one of the world’s most gifted storytellers.
The Glass Castle is a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette’s brilliant and charismatic father captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want the responsibility of raising a family.
The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. They fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered.
The Glass Castle is truly astonishing—a memoir permeated by the intense love of a peculiar but loyal family.
