A few months ago, I picked up this charming little book and have thoroughly enjoyed reading it. If you're a southern belle at heart like me, this is a must read! If you are interested in being a southern lady, this book is a fine attempt at explaining how to be a one. It is a bible for the Southern girl-whether born and bred, expatriated, or adoptive –and her many admirers. I have been non-stop laughing!
It reveals the code behind the distinctive -and irresistible-style of the Southern woman. Equal parts sweet sincerity and sharp, sly humor, The Grits Guide to Life is chock-full of Southern charm: advice, true-life stories from honest-to-god "Grits," recipes, humor, quotable wisdom, and more. Readers will learn vital lessons, including: how to eat a watermelon in a sundress; how to drink like a Southern lady (sip...a lot); and the real meaning of PMS (Precious Mood Southerner).
Here’s a taste of one of the Grits lessons:
This book is a really great read if you are a Southern girl or love somebody who is. It reviews all that your momma shoulda taught ya about being a true lady.
Have any of you ever read this book? If so, what did you think???
