The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines with Mark Dagostino, 208 pages
I am a HUGE fan of the HGTV show, Fixer Upper, so when I saw this book come through I knew I had to read it. And you know what? It's just about as adorable and sweet and fluffy as you'd imagine that Chip & Joanna were in person. They built their business from the ground up and appeared to have a few struggles along the way before finding the success and fame that starring in a reality TV show granted them. There really wasn't a lot of meat to this book. No decorating tips. No business tips. And most conflict was glossed over. I skimmed the last 40 pages or so. In my opinion, there weren't enough pictures of their projects. Fans of Fixer Upper will likely still want to check this out though.
