Book Review: Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton

OMG Y’ALL THIS BOOK HAS STOLEN MY HEART! I LOVED this book. It was so real and raw and painful to read. I could empathize with what she said so much. The going underneath with food and books. I could never really articulate what exactly happens with when I binge or get lost for days in books, […]

Nasty Galaxy

I loved #Girlboss so when I heard Nasty Galaxy was coming out I requested it from the Library and got it first!! This is not a book like #girlboss but rather more of a coffee table book. It is damn beautiful also. I wanted to buy every single item in the book. Too bad I […]

Book Review: Chernobyl Strawberries: A Memoir by Vesna Goldsworthy

I was browsing NetGalley when I saw this title. I thought it was going be a gritty memoir about what I have no idea. The aftermath of a nuclear fallout, maybe?   I must admit that I went into this expecting a gritty memoir. I did not get it. It is a memoir where nothing […]

Hyperbole and a Half

When I first found the blog Hyperbole and a Half I thought it was brilliant. However, when she posted about her depression I finally felt that someone put into words just how I feel. I have tried to explain to people the depths of depression, but it seemed that nobody could REALLY get it. Reading […]

It seems like a lot of successful women are coming out with books. There is Lean In  and Thrive among others. This book is different however in that it talks about women who are successful but still lack the confidence in themselves. First the authors describe what confidence means. It has a different meaning in […]

Book Review- Paris In Love

My Review I wanted to like this book. I really did. I read the summary and it sounded right up my alley. When I started reading, though it turned out she had taken Facebook status updates and turned them into a book. The result felt disjointed and there was no cohesion to the book. It was impossible for […]
