True Confessions: Books with All the Juicy Details
March 13, 2013
Confession is supposed to be good for the soul. So, true confession must be even better, right?
Friday, March 15 is True Confession Day. It's the day we're all supposed to spill the beans and tell all to our family, friends, pets, co-workers, and the occasional stranger.
Here at the Kearney Branch, we think that could make for an awkward and potentially messy day. Instead, we're suggesting you make it "Read a True Confession Day." That's right, spend the day reading about someone else's blunders, falsehoods, wickedness, and peccadillos. Here at MCPL, we have true confessions for all ages.
We have real-life true confessions. If you've ever wanted to know what goes on behind the scenes in restaurants, try Waiting: True Confessions of a Waitress by Debra Ginsberg. Like sports? Try True Confessions of a She Fan: The Course of True Love with the New York Yankees by Jane Heller. Learn about why we have to make true confessions at all and have a few laughs at the same time with Jason Boyett's O me of little faith: True Confessions of a Spiritual Weakling.
What happens when the confessions aren't true at all? Read True Stories of False Confessions by Rob Warden.
If you prefer your true confessions on the fictional side and you like young adult fiction, try Sucks to Be Me: the All-True Confessions of Mina Hamilton, Teen Vampire or True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet. If you've graduated to motherhood, try True Confessions of the Stratford Park PTA by Nancy Robards Thompson.
Or, just settle into a romance with the perfect title for the occasion, True Confessions by Rachel Gibson.
Confess. It does sound like the perfect way to spend the day, doesn't it?
