Today marks five years since I left my last (and hopefully forever last) treatment center for my anorexia. I‘ve wanted to read Roxane Gay for a while but have been afraid of being triggered by the food talk. I‘m so glad I‘m in a good place in my recovery because this book is amazing, Gay is such a wonderful writer. This book is a difficult read, as expected, but also an important story

Graciouswarriorprincess Congratulations on five years! 3mo
MicheleinPhilly Congratulations! ❤️ 3mo
TiredLibrarian That's awesome! 🙌🏼 3mo
TiredLibrarian And I agree both that this is a phenomenal book, and it could be triggering for those who have or are recovering from eating disorders, body dysmorphic disorders, and/or sexual abuse. 3mo
Megabooks Wow! Congratulations! I‘m so happy your recovery is going so well. 💙💙 3mo

All You Can Ever Know | Nicole Chung
post image

I‘ve been wanting to read this for a while.

I‘m also a Korean who was adopted in into a white family in a mainly white city. I count myself very lucky that I did not experience bullying growing up or ever had the inner conflict that Nicole experienced. Having other adopted friends, I know that I am definitely in the minority.

All the tears. All the stars.

If you loved THE HATING GAME, you‘re going to love the crap out of this one. I feel like this year has been one continuous reading slump but I love finding books like this that completely break and heal my heart.

Highly recommend.

Unfollow | Megan Phelps-Roper
post image
Pickpick

I watched Megan give a TED talk about her journey of leaving her family and the Westboro Baptist Church (her grandfather was the infamous Pastor Fred Phelps), and I was completely blown away by her insight and her compassion. This book was difficult to listen to at times, the things WBC have done are just horrible, but Megan gives me hope that change is real and everyone deserves a second chance.

Mehso-so

I absolutely ADORED “If I‘m Being Honest” so I was completely hyped to start this but it unfortunately missed the mark for me. I‘m not a huge fan of capsule romances that only last for a short period of time and this fell into that category. In the end, it‘s sadly a solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️ read for me.
