Wendy Lawless: Heart of Glass: A Memoir, A Review


Wendy is one of my favorite authors. She ranks, to me, with JK Rowling, JR Ward, Sophie Kinsella, Lauren Oliver, Veronica Roth and my other author friends such as Katie Salidas and Alexia Purdy

In 2014 I reviewed Wendy's 2013 Memoir, Chanel Bonfire. You can read that review HERE. I have read Chanel Bonfire at least 5 times since it's publication. 


Heart Of Glass Short Review:
      Wendy starts Heart of Glass much like she did Chanel Bonfire. Action, drama and confusion for those in the story. The book opens with Wendy in her twenties, living in New York City in a sublet apartment, moving to New York shortly after her last big fight with her mother. 

      After police raided the apartment and Wendy and her roommate lived in, she was forced to find a new place to live. Reluctantly, she moved in with her then boyfriend. Having been barely raised by her mother and practically raising her younger sister by herself, Wendy had her own views on how her independent life should be. 

      We get to see her relationship with her father get rekindled and flourish, after her mother had taken her and her sister, Robin, from him years prior. Wendy's relationships and self realizations make her grow into the amazing woman she is today. 

      Wendy uses a very vivid painting to show us what her life was like, from going to film school in New York, to hard life choices and realizing her dreams. The way she This is a must read, no matter what genre you prefer. 

      In the end, well...you will have to read for yourself!
