Good Reads!

I hate to admit it, but I am terrible at reading books! Before you make fun of me, let me explain. I am a great reader! I can read pretty fast and usually retain the information quite well! The part I suck at is finishing a book... I start books and then get bored never finish! 

The last book (series actually) that I actually finished was The Hunger Games.


I found the whole idea of hunger games to be very interesting.  I am pretty sure if it was me I would win!! Ok...maybe not...but my super competitiveness should would help.

Another book I actually finished was Life Without ED.


This book was phenomenal!! The woman is so honest and I could relate to so much. It made me feel not so alone and crazy!  I also liked the little bit of dark humor. For example, referring to an eating disorder as ED.  I like referring to it/him that way.  It makes it easier to talk about. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is struggling with an eating disorder. It is also helpful to friends or family of someone struggling. I had my parents and husband read it and they said it helped them understand my thinking a little. 

I wouldn't say this book helped me actually recover, but just made me feel hopeful!  I plan on reading it again now that I am actually "in recovery".

Now for my current read! 


Unbearable Lightness. I am less than half way done, but so far it is really good! It is the story of Portia De Rossi and her struggle with an eating disorder. It talks about how her ED really spiraled out of control once she became a famous actress.  Once again, I love her honesty. I really enjoy hearing and reading stories of those who have recovered or are in recovery! Gives me the hope and strength to keep moving forward with positive actions.

I love reading outside on a nice day! I just can't seem to concentrate when I am inside... I dunno why??


Oh how I love the sun!!  I also discovered a new favorite summer time beverage.


I have always been a fan of Snapple. This mix of iced tea and lemonade is so refreshing! Perfect to sip while enjoying a good book.

I sure hope I finish this book. I will let you know how it goes :)

What is the best book you have read lately??
