Lincee Ray’s Why I Hate Green Beans: And Other Confessions about Relationships, Reality TV, and How We See Ourselves is a gem of a book. With the feel of a memoir mixed with a humor column, the book is both funny and relatable. I liked reading Lincee’s witty insight on life. She adds a warm Southern charm to her writing – and she also adds a nice dash of humor to awkward or even painful situations. Why I Hate Green Beans is an optimistic book. Reading this book definitely makes me want to follow Lincee’s blog (which is, by the way, ihategreenbeans.com).
