Book Review for NEXT LEVEL BASIC by Stassi Schroeder
NEXT LEVEL BASIC: The Definitive Basic Bitch Handbook by Stassi Schroeder
☕ ☕ ☕ ☕
My Highly Caffeinated Thought: A humorous and unabashedly honest look in the life of a woman who is owning her basic-ness.
NEXT LEVEL BASIC is Stassi Schroeder. For those who thought that her unique voice wouldn’t translate into a New York Times Bestseller, then you would be wrong. Schroeder manages to capture everything so great about her personality and package it in a way to empower people to be who they are.
Now, this is not a feminist manifesto by any means, but I would be remiss if I didn’t point out how the author uses her life stories and quirks to show how you can be yourself without apology. I love how she melds together entertaining anecdotes and advise all the while maintaining that everyone has the right to be their version of a Basic Bitch.
I will be honest. I have watched Vanderpump Rules from day one and Stassi’s brand of bitchiness with heart has been a favorite of mine. She is never afraid to be her authentic self which is refreshing, especially in the land of models, wannabe actors, and SURvers. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. From beginning to end, I was in Basic Bitch heaven.
Reviewer Disclaimer: I bought the audiobook and listened to it before I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
