A Piece of Cake: A Memoir - Cupcake Brown

I purchased this book at a local bookstore, prior to the shop going out of business.  I am not sure what to really make of this book.  Although this book is meant to be a memoir, I just feel that some parts were either exaggerated or mixed with a little fiction.  On the whole, it was an ok read.

A Piece of Cake
A Piece of Cake - Cupcake Brown I love memoirs and after hearing about this one I was desperate to get my hands on it. When I finally did get a chance to read it I was a little disappointed. I loved the beginning since it was fast paced and I didn’t know what was going to happen next. However, as the book progressed I got bored a lot. It was just endless pages of the same storyline; parties, drugs, etc. I wanted more. More emotion, more excitement, and maybe a condensed version of all the party replays. Overall I did like the book and I loved Cupcake’s ultimate triumph

A Piece of Cake - Cupcake Brown

This book Is amazing you learn what people go through. This book was very shocking at first. I wanted to stop reading it but I was interisted in what happens to this girl. I was afraid she would get in more problems but I enjoyed seeing the world from her eyes. I would love to talk to this woman in person because she seems to spike my interist in the world around me. I believe that no body should go through this stuff alone you would need help with all this and deffinetly need someone to talk to about it. I love this book so far and I cant wait to read the rest.

Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson - Mitch Albom

 A Book that makes me Happy


My name is Megan and I'm an addict.

I've been in recovery for 6 years. It's been the most amazing 6 years of my life and I am thankful for every single minute. I was in rehab for the 2nd time in 6 months when I found this little hardcover book hiding in the corner of the common room. It was Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. I devoured the book, as I had already read the other million books I'd brought with me. Because of where I was in my life and the things that had occurred, this book really spoke to me. I know this book had nothing to do with my recovery but when I think back to that transition period of me going from actively using to in recovery this book is what I remember. And it makes me Happy.


A Piece of Cake by Cupcake Brown makes me Happy for similar reasons. After I stopped using I read every drug addiction/alcoholism memoir I could get my hands on. Her memoir was sad and horrific but it had a beautiful ending. This book inspired me more than any other book I've ever read. If she could overcome all that she went through and did...anybody could - including me. This book make me happy because it proves that our mistakes don't need to define us and if you want something bad enough, you can do anything.

A Piece of Cake: A Memoir
A Piece of Cake - Cupcake Brown Memoir focuses on Brown's days as an alcoholic & drug addict. She's got a singular voice, and a fascinating story. I wanted more about her life as a sober lawyer. Perhaps she'll flesh out that part of her life in a new book. Recommended.
