A short description of our current book; We’re Going to Need More Wine by @gabunion . This sparkling book collects amusing and heartbreaking stories from the life of actress Gabrielle Union. After moving with her family from Omaha, Neb., to Pleasanton, Calif., in grade school, Union grappled with being black in a predominately white student population and attempted to assimilate and gain peer approval by being the class clown. . At 19, a stranger raped her at gunpoint; for a year afterwards she barely left the house. In time, she began to heal, pursuing modelling and acting, attending college, and getting married. Union shines a light on issues of race in America and the difficulties young black women face in Hollywood; in an essay on raising boys (two from her basketball star husband Dwayne Wade’s previous marriage as well as his nephew), Union explores the daunting responsibility of parenting in a culture dangerous to black youths. . Several essays deal with “teen drama,” dating, making friends, and sexuality; some are quite funny, as when she describes her surprising first encounter with a tampon and discusses when to drink wine or tequila after a break-up. Union’s no-holds-barred essays and intimate voice will appeal to her fans as well as those less familiar with her work. . . #luminariesbookclub #book #weregoingtoneedmorewine e
how I spend my mornings with @fox29philly everyday. It’s been great having @alexholleytv back and can’t help but love when #stevekeeley and the gang crack jokes. #fbf to that day I ran into @mikejerrick downtown he really is such a joy. It’s also nothing like a good read in the morning, I’m late with 📖 the beautiful and talented @gabunion #weregoingtoneedmorewine but it’s better late than never. #happyfriday #gooddayphiladelphia #fox29philly #fox29goodday #alexholleyfox29 #mikejerrick #morningnews #myfav #gabrielleunion #readagoodbook #stressreliever #goodmorning #haveaproductiveday 😊
#bookburst #ktxx22reviews #weregoingtoneedmorewine by #gabrielleunion Most surprising thing about this book... Union’s vulgarity. I really appreciated her, her voice, and her story, but I really felt like the language she chose in certain stories was on another level. She narrates the audiobook and she does an amazing job telling her story... but overall the story is a little all over the place timeline wise. Gonna be ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 from me. Definitely recommend if you’re looking for a solid memoir. #book #bookstagram #booksarelife #bookworm #bookish #bookdragon #bookrecommendations #bookreview #bookreader #audiobookreview #audiobookstagram #audiobook #goodreads #150booksinayear #readingilikethatshit 📚 #readmorebooks #readmore #60secondbookreview #60secondreview #booktube #catchmeonyoutube #videoreview

I know I know. I posted this in my story already. This book is so good, you need to hear about it again. The stories shared within this book are relatable and told in a way that is raw and not sugar coated. Mrs. Union-Wade completely opens up to her audience and it’s refreshing to hear and feel that yes, celebs are just like us. The wisdom she bestows upon listeners/readers is appreciated, at least by me. I liked her before and now I love her. I’m rooting for her harder. This is the best book I’ve listened to on @audible_com so far. It has set the muthafuckin bar. #gabrielleunion #weregoingtoneedmorewine #audible
I’ve always like Gabrielle Union - mainly because there’s a girl-next-door, chilled-laidback quality that I’ve always sensed about her. She brings truckloads of that and a generous sprinkling of humour to this book. . . @gabunion keeps it EXTREMELY real with this one. This is what the journey to self looks like - there are a lot of twists and turns, dips and bends, wins and loses, friendships, relationships, and she’s talking about it all with humour. Yea. Even the uncomfortable/difficult stuff. I especially love the agency that comes through. She’s the author of her story, and she’s telling it her own way. That’s extremely powerful and inspiring. As women we are socialized to blend in, to smooth out all our edges, to be less than our original selves, because the world maybe uncomfortable with our authenticity. Then we find ourselves, or at least we begin to, and finally ditch all that bullshit. . . The chapter where she writes about Prince; she captures his essence so powerfully and the fact that he was a “connector,” especially to black people. This book is laughter, learning and humorous wisdom. Love it!! 💙💜🧡 #gabrielleunion #weregoingtoneedmorewine #greatreads #autobiography
Recently had the pleasure to watch an episode of Daily show with Trevor Noah. He was interviewing the actress Gabrielle Union and they were talking about her book We're going to need more wine. She was so passionate and that convinced me to give the book a try. Even though I usually avoid any memoirs or autobiographies, I decided to give in just this once and only thanks to that interview. And honestly I wasn't disappointed. Well, sure, there is always room for improvement. But I'd give it an 8/10. And the reason is that the stories didn't go from childhood to adulthood. It varied by her own accord. When reading the book, it felt natural that this was the story she wanted to tell after the previous one. It kind of made sense. And the stories were written in simple words, no fancy descriptions, no useless paragraphs. Just the simple story of what happened and her thoughts on it. These thoughts were the best part. They empowered me as a reader to look at things from a different perspective, to look beyond what I have been told is right or wrong. And if a book makes my mind expand like this one did, it's worth for everyone else to read it too. Recommended 100%. #bestseller #bookreview #allaboutme #memoir #gabrielleunion #weregoingtoneedmorewine #trevornoah

#weregoingtoneedmorewine had no idea who @gabunion was - just loved the title of this book! I realise now that I probably saw her on #ER or possibly #Friends - no matter, this an inspiring and wonderful read. One to file (and return to often) alongside #slayinyourlane or #whyiamnolongertalkingtowhitepeopleaboutrace she covers so many serious issues in short pithy and humourous essays. The kind of things you discuss over #wine or #cold coffee with your trusted friends! #growingup #memoir #race #relationships #career #bringingupboys #trauma #ivf #stepmotherhood #actors #prince #friendship #cancer #wiseadvice #writng #lol #blackgirlmagic #lovedit #greece 🇬🇷 #summerreading #books #2018

I’ve just finished listening to this on audible and it was amazing! It was as if Gabrielle Union was in front of me, telling me her life story. It was fun, sad and inspiring altogether. I was already a big fan and now I love her even more! Totally recommend this one ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Well said, Josh! Though it takes a lot for oneself to stand up towards sexism, racism, stereotypes, and bullies. And to bring it to the table and to talk about it, that’s the least that we can do! 🤝❤️🌈🌍xx! #humanity #equality #thingsthatmatter #gabrielleunion #trevornoah #sendinglove #itgetsbetter #thedailyshowwithtrevornoah #weregoingtoneedmorewine
I have never really cared for @gabunion because I always thought she was uppity/stuck-up. This woman has my utmost respect now! This is an amazing book! I highly recommend it! . . . . . . #imlatetotheparty #gabrielleunion #weregoingtoneedmorewine #dwaynewade #readingtime 📖 #bringiton #fuckpayless #rapesurvivors
This book was so refreshing and honest. Perfect example of how we are all more alike than we are different (well, at least me and Gabrielle are alike...and we could totally be bff’s). #LovedIt #BlackGirlMagic #GabrielleUnion #WereGoingToNeedMoreWine #BookRecommendation

A good book can take you on a journey and through a range of emotions - so funny how those emotions come out when sharing reading experiences. #saycheese - I had a blast with these #bookies ...see you next month!

This beautiful Saturday started off here...all set up for this month’s #eclecticallyyouexperience #byobookclubforbusybodies . Can’t wait to share my thoughts on @gabunion ‘s #weregoingtoneedmorewine . This book had me all over the place emotionally. I’m glad she wrote this revealing book that captures so many coming-of-age aspects of true life from a woman’s perspective - especially a woman of color. These aspects are the kind that make us uncomfortable but can not be denied. She is brave and her transparency allows others to be...somebody’s gotta do it!!! Can’t wait to see what the other members bring! #essenceeats
Behind Closed Doors by B.A Paris. Front desk by Kelly Yang. We're going to need more wine by Gabrielle Union. Memoirs of a Lagos Wedding by Tolulope Popoola. So I read 4 books this month and I blame it all on reader's block! But 4 books is something really, hopefully September will be more .
My final ladies book club event for 2018 is coming up in October and Big Cork Vineyards will be our host location! Why? Because we "Must Love Shoes" gals love Big Cork and...ahem.... "We're going to need more wine!" We'll be dishing on a lot of the topics Gabrielle talks about in her book! So it will be a blast!! Want to join us?

I'm SO glad @gabunion narrated her own @audible_com book, bcuz I've laughed out loud so many times and I'm only on Chapter 3! I bought it when it first came out last year, but am finally getting a chance to listen uninterrupted. #WereGoingToNeedMoreWine #TakingTimeToRead #ListenRead #Audible

I just finished listening to this on #Audible . Here’s my review: Gabby was super transparent about race, relationships and more in this heartfelt and funny collection of essays. She didn’t tell all, but what she did share will leave you with things to ponder and investigate about yourself and others. Great memoir! #Books #Audiobooks #Reading #Memoirs #Acting #Entertainment #Race #Diversity #Comedy #Love #Dating #Relationships #WereGoingToNeedMoreWine #GabrielleUnion

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Listening to Union speak her story was impactful. She bravely lays it bare and isn’t afraid to speak openly about delicate personal and societal issues.

It’s the 🍿 and 📖 weekend - Nothing like a controversial 🎥 with the girls and a transparently bold book that’s getting me ready for the return of #byobookclubforbusybodies #september meet up ! My review- Okay I always say, movies move me and this one will move you too. I have high tolerance for heavy and dark themes so I respected the message of @blackkklansman ... all I can say is go in with the mindset of THIS is truly another #spikelee joint ... On another note, I wish I had more time to read, but my goal is to make time... I really love reading nonfiction, especially memoirs - @gabunion ‘s #weregoingtoneedmorewine has me all over the place emotionally. I’m glad she wrote this revealing book that captures so many coming-of-age aspects of true life from a woman’s perspective - especially a woman of color. These aspects are the kind that make us uncomfortable but can not be denied. She is brave and her transparency allows others to be... somebody’s gotta do it !!! Both are #basedonatruestory

Still celebrating my birthday month but took a moment to bless one of my best girls @angeliquewalkerh with a bottle of Riesling by @mcbridesisters out of New Zealand and California, respectively, and @gabunion book "We're Going To Need More Wine". The McBride Sisters have a beautiful backstory. Please be sure to check out their website and support their dreams: http://www.mcbridesisters.com/mcbridesisters#about -the-mcbride-sisters . A "just because" gift for a woman who is living, breathing Black Girl Magic, gets it and me.

I’m a regular viewer of “The Daily Show” so I thought I’d give Trevor Noah’s book “Born A Crime” a listen. It was like a long form standup routine about the comedian’s upbringing in South Africa. The villain of the book is Apartheid and the lingering social & economic effects of the institutionalized system of racial segregation. It seemed to hang over young Noah like a dark cloud, and shaped decisions, relationships, and how he navigated his world. He also speaks of some very painful experiences, which may have steered his choice toward comedy as a coping mechanism. Great storytelling, just like his standup routines. But like Gabrielle Union’s “We’re Going To Need More Wine”, hearing it in the author’s voice really brought the book to life. Definitely worth a listen. . . . #TrevorNoah @trevornoah #TheDailyShow @thedailyshow #ComedyCentral @comedycentral #BornACrime #SouthAfrica #Apartheid #Racism #Family #comedy #GabrielUnion @gabunion #WereGoingToNeedMoreWine #friday #bookclub #bookshelf #read #readingnook #weekendescape #readingcorner #audiobook #childhoodunplugged
Just finished reading this amazing book by @gabunion and highly recommend it to everyone. I love it when celebrities get real and share their own struggles and how they overcome them. Makes me like them even more. 💖💪🏼🤗 #thursdaymotivation #gabrielleunion #weregoingtoneedmorewine 🍷 #loveagoodbook #selfdiscovery #metoo #strugglesmakeyoustronger #relationshipgoals ❤️
@gabunion I have my wine and I’m ready to dive into my next read. I think you’re awesome and can’t wait to read this book... Had this book for awhile and decided it was time to dive in. #weregoingtoneedmorewine #memoir #biography #books #bookswag #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #bookshelf #bookish #booklovers #booknerd #bookworm
Gabrielle, I don't drink wine, but can I join you with a bottle of my finest Fanta? Thanks @rovingheights #WereGoingToNeedMoreWine #GabrielleUnion #Memoirs #Stories #Bookaholic
Lastly, before I wash my doggies and my nasty road trip hair...I highly advise reading (or in my case listening) to this book. It really turned the tail end of my trip around and made the last 5 hrs (and then some because I need that kind of overlap) from sad to enjoyable, informative, uplifting, and then super informative and uplifting, but in this this sad but necessary way that allows you to appreciate the latter. Thank you for sharing @gabunion . It was exactly what I needed when I REALLY wasn’t sure what I needed. Here’s hoping I don’t regret fanboying out 🤪 #gabrielleunionwade #gabrielleunion #weregoingtoneedmorewine #roadtripessentials
I’m reading this little gem with @terra501 this month. @gabunion #ilovebooks #blackgirlsread #weregoingtoneedmorewine

~~ I saw Gabrielle Union on TV during the promotion of this book. You never know the issues people have dealt with, and still are. But on a good note, she seems blessed. • #weregoingtoneedmorewine @gabunion #gabrielleunion @deystreet
/ hair day / Booked a last minute appointment at @toogroovysalon and was blown away by the care and quality of service. @asap1973 did an awesome job with my dry, kinky, tangled hair. The shampoo guy washed my hair like it was a luxury service alone. Thank you! I will be back. #booked #weregoingtoneedmorewine
Happy friYAY everyone! • • Before bookstagram I always took photos of my Friday nights in with wine and a book! • 📚📚 We're going to need more wine- Gabrielle Union • • 📝 I ❤ short stories, anecdotes of life experiences even more so. sharing personal information can be very frightening so this book for me allowed me to respect Gabrielle Union and fan girl for her in a way I had never done previously. Stories about race, colorism, womanhood and the constant questions of childbirth (that one very relatable). "Get out of my pussy"- she says. Something I wish I had the courage to say when people ask me when I am going have a kid. • • @gabunion #weregoingtoneedmorewine #gabrielleunion #Shenekarushellbooks #bookreview #bookstagram #bookbloger #bookblogs #bookstagramfeature
