What’s in the Fixer Upper book? Joanna and Chip Gaines announce surprise release of ‘The Magnolia Story’

Fixer Upper book 2

Is there a Fixer Upper book? Where can I buy the Fixer Upper book? And what is this fabled Fixer Upper book about? These questions all became reality today, thanks to the announcement of The Magnolia Story, the first-ever official publication by Fixer Upper‘s Chip and Joanna Gaines. The announcement came in the wake of some subtle teasing on social media: a couple of days ago, we shared the news of a forthcoming Fixer Upper surprise, thanks to Joanna’s unexpected Instagram update. At the time, we thought the news might be the long-awaited Fixer Upper crossover with Property Brothers. It turns out that we should have taken Joanna’s photo of pages flipping a book a little more seriously…

So, what is the Fixer Upper book all about? Here’s the good word from Joanna and Chip themselves:

The Fixer Upper book has its own tag on the Magnolia Market webpage, which offers a bit more information. It looks like the book’s full title is The Magnolia Story: Living Out Your Dreams, and it will be released on October 18th of this year. The press release promises a full behind-the-scenes bio:  


The Magnolia Story is the first book from Chip and Joanna, offering their fans a detailed look at their life together. From the very first renovation project they ever tackled together, to the project that nearly cost them everything; from the childhood memories that shaped them, to the twists and turns that led them to the life they share on the farm today.

  On a related note, Chip just shared a little behind-the-scenes trivia relating to last night’s brand-new Fixer Upper episode. If you felt hungry during this particular scene, now you know why:

Remember: Fixer Upper airs Tuesdays at 9 PM on HGTV, and you can order The Magnolia Story, the first official Fixer Upper book, thorough the Magnolia Market site.
