    Whiskey in a Tea Cup: What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love & Baking Biscuits by Reese Witherspoon is a 2018 Touchstone publication. I feel like I’ve watched Reese Witherspoon grow up. She was always so funny and seemed approachable. She has proven herself to be not only an accomplished actress, but a highly successful entrepreneur and businesswoman. However, she did face an uncomfortable moment in her life, a situation that may have been the catalyst that rededicated Reese Whiskey in a Tea Cup: What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love & Baking Biscuits by Reese Witherspoon is a 2018 Touchstone publication. I feel like I’ve watched Reese Witherspoon grow up. She was always so funny and seemed approachable. She has proven herself to be not only an accomplished actress, but a highly successful entrepreneur and businesswoman. However, she did face an uncomfortable moment in her life, a situation that may have been the catalyst that rededicated Reese to her southern roots. This is an adorable book, with wonderful color photos, recipes and lots of southern-isms. I’m from the south- born in the deep rural south, at that, moving around a great deal until I finally landed in Texas. So, I could relate to some of the rules and etiquette unique to the southern region. However, Reese’s version of southern is more suited to certain social classes than the one in which I was born. There's some old southern traditions Reese heartily embraces, that I simply couldn’t see myself reverting to, like wallpaper, for example. But, that’s probably just a matter of taste. I’m also not too big on bluegrass or country music, but again, that’s just me. However, I did enjoy her emphasis on civility, politeness, and manners. Those things should never go out of style. The book has a very upbeat and fun tempo, although at times I thought it went a little overboard, bordering on contrived. The book almost has the same lay- out as a women’s magazine might, centering on family traditions, popular eateries, decorating for various holidays, hosting dinner parties and of course the requisite recipes included. There are lovely photos of Reese and her children and her beautiful home, with anecdotes about her parents and grandparents. But, the book is also a memoir, and I think Reese’s message is that her southern upbringing is hardwired into her very being. No matter where she is living she still adheres to those values and principles. She’s matured and realizes that she can be a strong feminist voice, run her businesses and enjoy a successful career and still be a lady and enjoy doing things that makes her feel feminine, and brings her comfort and joy, as well. She enjoys the benefits of her success, has weathered a few bumps in the road, and learned to embrace a simpler life, creating a nice homey environment for her family and friends and still seems just as approachable as ever. This is a fun book and gives fans an intimate glimpse at Reese’s life away from Hollywood, which, by the way, is seldom mentioned. This is strictly about her personal time, her southern roots, and about fond family memories and influences that inspired her to become the person she is today.

    Witherspoon's book about southern living covers topics like food, decorating, and getting dressed up, but it doesn't have enough of any one topic to be useful. The recipes are common southern dishes that you've seen a hundred times and probably done better. When she says she scouts flea markets for little decorative items I don't believe her. I like her as an actress and admire her work as a producer, but this book is a cash grab. Review from e-galley.

In my personal opinion, it's not a super regrettable experience if you can't get your hands on it right away but it was indeed interesting to explore. I listened to the audiobook initially, which is narrated by Reese Witherspoon herself, and she made reference to an attached PDF that provides visuals of recipes, photos, etc. Since I borrowed the audiobook from my library's database, I couldn't access the PDF (some compatibility issue), so I went a few days later to the bookstore to sneak a peek at the visuals. There are tidbits, notes, lists, ideas, etc. also that aren't in the audiobook. I'd have to admit, it probably would have been a tedious listening experience if they were all in there. I've listened to audiobooks where whole recipes were narrated and it is pretty pointless in my opinion. While I enjoyed listening to Reese Witherspoon and her fiery Southern drawl, I'd have to recommend the physical book/ebook on this one...unless you are certain you can access the PDF on your device. Enjoy! My favorite quote: "To me, southern womanhood is about both the teacup and the whiskey – the music and the manners, the hospitality and the fight for fairness. Some people think that caring about “silly” things like cooking or fashion is mutually exclusive with “serious” politics. But my mother and grandmother and their friends taught me that finding pleasure at home – whether in a family dinner or a book club or a backyard barbecue – can give us the strength to go out into the world and do incredible things." Recipes I plan to try: Reese's Chicken Pot Pie Casserole Sauteed Baby Kale John's BBQ Sauce

From the dedication to the last word, there is an authenticity and warmth that permeates this offering and I enjoyed a few hours in her company.

    I enjoy reading about, "The South." The lifestyle, fashion, food, and history fascinates me. I like Reese Witherspoon and her spin on how growing up in the South (Tennessee) influenced her life. This is a coffee-table type of book. It's not exactly a memoir but just her thoughts on how the South and her family traditions contributed to her outlook on life. The pictures are nice and the stories are cute. There are some standard southern recipes as well. There's nothing really new or substantial in I enjoy reading about, "The South."

It's a delightful book to flip through with a cup of tea (and perhaps a splash of whiskey.). Why not? Reese says that's the way in the South.

    Update: Just received the ebook and I may need to update from 3 1/2 stars to 4 just for the pictures! Not only pics of Reese and her family, but her home and surrounding area. Nicely done.

I say that because I feel this book is geared more toward twenty/thirty-somethings, since to us mature women, it seems just common sense. It’s mostly about entertaining, decorating, food, etc. The best parts are when she talks about her grandmother Dorothea, and her Mom. Keeping memories is her best advice in my opinion. The audio comes with a PDF of recipes, etc. which I haven’t downloaded yet. I’m sure the ebook includes them. Reese narrates so it’s great to hear her voice However, do yourself a favor, while Reese does have a pleasant voice, the pictures in the ebook are much better. And who wants to fuss with downloading a PDF anyway. Go for the book! . Enjoy!

    0 stars for the memoire, 3 for the recipes ~random thoughts~ The South is THE BESTEST!!!1 Seriously this book is a huge collection of lists about, mostly, "the south" and how to be a proper lady/host/guest/cook/whatever. Very awkward attempt to advocate about the non-racism of THE SOUTH by listing the accomplishments of black women and men. But OF COURSE she would love gender reveal parties. "You don't have to lose your femininity to be a strong woman." A possible summary could be the quote "there's a 0 stars for the memoire, 3 for the recipes ~random thoughts~ The South is THE BESTEST!!!1 Seriously this book is a huge collection of lists about, mostly, "the south" and how to be a proper lady/host/guest/cook/whatever.

God damn this really feels like it was written in a past decade, I cannot imagine how a modern woman can be so clueless. Don't mind the recipes, it'll be fun to try them out. I cringe at the photos that look like ones from a catologue for expensive furniture. All in all, a very rich-and-white kind of book. I would expect this from Goop, but Witherspoon? I hoped for better.

    Sweet tea, fried chicken, cheddar biscuits, Bluegrass music and BBQ. These are a few of the things I think about when I think of southern living.

Road trips (driving, not flying), drive-in theaters, and southern restaurants bring thoughts of visiting family and of family reunions. I've enjoyed going down memory lane with this book, Whiskey in a Teacup. It reminded me of my southern roots and what made family and friends so important. In the hussle and bussle world, these things can be forgotten. It's time to slow down and get back in contact with them. A few passages from the book I enjoyed: "[Grandmother] Dorothea always said it was a combination of beauty and strength that made southern women." Whiskey in a Teacup -- "We may be delicate and ornamental on the outside, she [Dorothea] said, but inside we're strong and fiery. Our famous hospitality isn't martyrdom; it's modeling. True southern women treat everyone the way they want to be treated: with grace and respect -- no matter where they come from or how different from you they may be. Dorothea taught me [Reese Witherspoon] to never abide cruelty or injustice. The Golden Rule applies to everyone." "To me, southern womanhood is about both the teacup and the whiskey -- the music and the manners, the hospitality and the fight for fairness." "Life isn't about perfection. There is no rule book. Life has many different chapters, and every chapter deserves celebrating." "Southern women are strong and outspoken but also beautifully composed and always present their best selves to the world. They believe in character and the presentation of that character. They aren't afraid to tell you how they really feel." This book satisfies A Book for All Seasons challenge number four: Who are you?

    Having deviled eggs on Reese Witherspoon’s porch is definitely on my bucket list now. This is a sweet and heartfelt love letter to the South with yummy recipes and personal stories thrown in. *I read a digital ARC of this title from the publisher via Edelweiss.

    2.5 Stars. Reese Witherspoon reflects on what sets her apart as a southern woman. She is every bit as sweet as you imagine. I listened to her read the audiobook, which only took a couple hours. There weren’t any juicy life stories in here, so don’t bother if that is what you are looking for. The recipes and tutorials were mediocre at best.

    “How do you make it to adulthood without ever picking up at least one verse of “Joy to the World?” Were you raised in a bunker?” Well this was just pure Southern charm, with a side o whiskey fun in a coffee table book! That Reese Witherspoon is adorable! Knows who she is, proud of her roots and isn’t afraid to throw a suggestion out there! Enjoyable!

    I’m a bad southern woman. 😆 I don’t wear a lot of color or patterns, no lipstick, definitely no monograms, and I haven’t a clue how to roller my hair, but I adore Reese and loved listening to her talk about growing up in Nashville. If you listen to the audio, be sure to check out the PDF which is full of pretty photos, family recipes, and party playlists.

    This is a charming book that covers everything quintessentially Southern. Realistically, there's absolutely nothing new or super creative here; the recipes are all classic dishes and the information provided will have Southerner's nodding in agreement/understanding and may get a giggle from someone not familiar with the Southern culture. I do love the design layout and photographs included and enjoyed the hour I spent with it start to finish.

    If you want something to lift your spirits and keep you smiling, this is it! Written with Reese’s fun personality and charm this is all about her life in the South, funny southernisms and how she entertains friends. Take a peek at hot-rolling your hair, baking up a mess of cheddar biscuits or sipping a ‘sun brewed’ glass of sweet tea with Reese’s how-to’s + recipes. My fav chapter, The Perfect Bookclub paired with a bookclub menu.. I mean, just that chapter alone, sold!

Who she truly is doesn’t really square up with her carefully cultivated, cutesy little image of a sweet, well mannered, conscientious and caring Southern belle. That said, this book is precisely what I feared - a bunch of fake bullshit that I would bet a million dollars Reese Witherspoon has no link to at all except for depositing checks into her bank account. The book is just a substance lacking, shallow project for someone who wants a new hobby. Book, check; cookbook, check (this book has mediocre recipes too); clothing line, check; furniture, unknown; overpriced boutique of stupid crap; probably in the works. This ranks up there with wasting precious moments of your life on a Goop website. If you really must have a copy, look for it at garage sales near you for $.50 in a few months.

Our family never held Kentucky Derby parties, but that sounds like a great tradition to start. Most of the recipes are familiar to me, but there are a few that I can't wait to try. The author is a famous actress and entrepreneur, and I believe she wrote this book because she is truly proud of her roots and Southern history. I really enjoyed her stories.

    Mostly fluff, not much substance. I live in “The South” and, yes, women like to wear makeup, dress up, entertain, etc and have been raised to do these things. Not sure why stating those well known facts warranted a book. Still, it was an enjoyable audiobook as it was read by the author.

    Reese Witherspoon is one of my favorite actresses, so when I saw she had a book and my library had it I knew I had to check it out. I hate to say it, but to me this is a huge vanity project. The audio book was not much over 2 hours long, the book might have been the better way to go. I was glad that she provided what was basically the book in pdf form so that you could see. I'm sure the paper book had big glossy pages, there sure were a lot of pictures, not a lot of words.
