Goodbye, Vitamin Goodbye, Vitamin by Rachel Khong
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sad, but lovely. I enjoyed all the trivia but not sure if it can be believed, it is a novel after all.

Review: ME: A Novel

ME: A Novel ME: A Novel by Tomoyuki Hoshino
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

What the.......????

Just as soon as I was feeling I had a handle on this story, it would slip away. Ultimately, it's a simple idea but told in a distractingly complicated manner. Not sure if I liked this book or not.

Review: The Elegance of the Hedgehog

The Elegance of the Hedgehog The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. What a wonderful little story. I think I may have identified with the concierge quite a bit, that may have contributed to my enjoyment. I am going to have to buy a copy of this book to add to my collection. I'm also looking forward to reading the other works by this author.

This review is in exchange for a free e-galley from netgalley.com.

Review: Thinspired: My Plan for Lasting Weight Loss and Self Acceptance

Thinspired: My Plan for Lasting Weight Loss and Self Acceptance Thinspired: My Plan for Lasting Weight Loss and Self Acceptance by Mara Schiavocampo
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I didn't find this particularly helpful, even though it was well written. I think this book would be useful for people who are just starting out in trying to make some changes. For those of us who have been at it for a while, there isn't really anything new to learn here.
