FP Book Club #15

Hey Guys! 

I have been reading loads again recently, I even have multiple books on the go at once (which is actually really hard for me to keep track of!) Anyway it is time for another book club post and this moths book is Postcards from the Edge by Carrie Fisher.
This book by the late great Carrie Fisher is the first in a series about actress Suzanne Vale. If follows Suzanne going through rehab and then her first year after that, trying to get back into work and be sober. It is written in a mixture of diary like chapters, and third person, as well as sort of conversation chapters.
It is actually a really funny book, granted not a particular funny subject, but Carrie wrote it so it is really easy to read and really funny. You can tell Carrie really drew from her own experiences of addiction and rehab, as well as acting, it just felt really accurate.

One thing I will say is now the book does feel a little dated, it is set in the 80/90s so some of the references went a little over my head...doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it though.
It was just really easy to read. I think I read it in just over a week, I just wanted to keep reading. The whole story was really relatable, you felt like you were going on the journey with Suzanne, I guess it was just how it was written. I just felt like she was having a conversation with me and telling me about her. In a way it felt a little autobiographical in terms of the experiences being similar to ones Carrie had in real life, but then I can imagine her experiences allowed her to exaggerate everything a little.
I really enjoyed the book and will definitely be reading the second book.
Have you guys read any of the Carrie Fisher books? What did you think of them? Don't forget to join the book club over on Goodreads, the next book will be Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng, make sure you read it too!
