When A Woman Takes An Axe To A Wall by: Allegra Bennett *Review and Giveaway*

Monday, June 14, 2010

    This book is truly inspirational!  I live in an apartment, and this book has inspired me to become a homeownHer!  Now I've always wanted to own a house, but this book, has inspired me to not just own a home, but to renovate one, and make it truly my own, as well!
    When A Women Takes An Axe To A Wall explores the synergy between a woman and the four walls she calls her own.  Through anecdotes and incidents, it show us that a woman, or indeed all women who take on their own home repairs, embark on more than just superficial fix-it-jobs the dip into the reconstruction of their own spirits.  Realization through renovation in progress.
    Like I said this book has truly inspired me.  It's helped me put a lot of things in order (both around the house, and mentally).  I've been thinking about where I'd like to live what I'd like my home to look like, and so forth.  I actually even talked my fiance about getting a fixer-upper, and letting me rebuild, and fix it up!  He actually said that sounded good (which is odd, because if you know me, I'm not usually the fixer-upper type lol)!  I've been so moved that me and my fiance are starting to look for a home that we would like to live in and put our blood, sweet, and tears into (so to speak).  I definitely recommend this book to any woman!  Even if you don't own a home (like us), it makes you want to take charge of your space!
    If you would like to buy this book, or to check out other books go visit The Writer's Lair Books!  This book retails for $15.99!  And now for the fun part! The giveaway!
