She might not live in the White House anymore, but that hasn’t stopped former First Lady Michelle Obama inspiring us on the regular. In fact, she’s the go-to girl when it comes to pep talks.
It’s hardly surprising therefore that the 54-year-old’s memoir, Becoming, is flying off the shelves. The book delves deep into Michelle’s life and discusses everything – from her childhood and motherhood to ‘her time spent at the world’s most famous address’.
The reaction to the book has been overwhelmingly positive, with even Michelle’s husband, former POTUS Barack Obama taking to social media to offer his review.
‘Of course, @MichelleObama’s my wife, so I’m a little biased here. But she also happens to be brilliant, funny, wise – one of a kind,’ he posted alongside a photo of his wife’s memoir. ‘This book tells her quintessentially American story. I love it because it faithfully reflects the woman I have loved for so long.’
Yes, we’re crying too.
And Barack isn’t the only person singing Michelle’s praises. In fact, the former FLOTUS is so popular that the London leg of her 13-night book tour sold out in seconds, with tens of thousands of fans taking to Twitter to voice their disappointment.
‘Truly humbled by the response to my upcoming book tour,’ Michelle Obama tweeted. ‘I can’t wait to share BECOMING with all of you & hope to see you somewhere along the way!’
We’re off to dream about Barack and Michelle’s couple goals.
