What I'm Reading Wednesday: How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World

Fact: I have been, am, and always will be a bookworm. I love to read, and haven't done a lot of it in the past year or two. In the last few months I've been making a conscious effort to go back to my old ways, so to keep me reading I've decided to start sharing What I'm Reading posts every few Wednesdays to share some of my favorites with you guys.

This week I'm talking about How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World by Jordan Christy. I heard about it from other bloggers for a while and this book is basically my new bible. It's exactly what it sounds like, teaching you short lessons on how to be the Audrey we all strive for in an age full of social blunders, crop tops, desperate girls, and ragers.

First of all, the cover art. C'mon. So cute.

How to Be a Hepburn teaches so many different lessons that apply to all areas of life. Some of the different sections include "Keep Your Chin Up and Your Skirt Down", "Words, Words, Words", "Let Him Come Calling", "Dress to Impress", and "Have Your Cake and Eat It Too", just a few of the 10 varying sections on everything from diet and exercise to fashion/makeup to boys. This is the kind of book you pass down to little sisters and "little sisters" and cousins and friends. The kind of book you'll give to your daughter one day as she faces the madness that is high school. I've already quoted its advice to my friends multiple times and even my mom is reminding me of how I should emulate Audrey in everything I do. The lessons are priceless, all of them. But I've pulled a few quotes that I love.

I'm so glad I found this book at my local Joseph-Beth. It's already taught me a few great lessons and I hope to be able to pass it down to Avery one day.

  1. I have been dying to read it (and so happy to hear its as good as it looks)! I especially love the quote about being in a verbal comfort zone - it's too true!

    Pick Your Beau

    1. I definitely recommend it! I love that quote too, her whole chapter about how our society speaks is great.

  2. I just ordered the book though I still have tons to read. lol.
