The Magnolia Story | Book Review

The Magnolia Story is a fabulous read, especially if you are an HGTV Fixer Upper fan! CAUTION: If you’re not a fan… you will be once you finish reading this book!  How often do you pick up a biography and not want to put it down?!… Not often for me, but this book was the exception! The Magnolia Story is written in a very sweet manor by Joanna Gaines with cute inserts from her hilariously corky husband, Chip Gaines.  It is so much fun hearing all about their love story, the growth of their family and how they came to be the well known Fixer Uppers.  I loved the transparency as they mixed in their real-life faith and struggles along their journey.  As you relive their life choices and adventures along with them, you can’t help but fall in love with them, and I routinely caught myself smiling as I was reading!  Their hugely generous hearts wrap you up and you find yourself rooting for them more and more with every page turn.

You get to learn about their rollercoaster of a journey in business and how it has only made them stronger as a couple and stronger as a family.  I especially love how they have stayed grounded in their Waco, Texas roots and have made decisions to not only better them and their family, but their city and state as a whole.  They are the epitome of small town heroes, but don’t just take it from me, read the book and see for yourself!

This book is the perfect light read and one I now recommend to everyone who is looking for a good read.  It is filled with laughter, tears, creativity and small town values.  And BONUS: there are photos!  The Magnolia Story makes for the best gift, so pick up a copy for a friend and be sure to grab one for yourself as well!
