Women, Food & God

Book Review of Women, Food and God by Geneen Roth
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
First, I must tell you this was a book I received through the free book giveaway on http://www.goodreads.com . I didn’t even know I had won it but one day, there it was in the mail. A very good friend joined a women’s discussion group and they read through this book, a chapter a week, and worked through the stuff that came up for them as they read this book. I was intrigued by what my friend’s experience was and I eagerly dived in.

The book is written in a fun and engaging style that makes it easy to read. However, I must admit that I found myself constantly stopping and telling people around to…”Listen to this” as I re-read them passages from the book. I would pick up the phone and call my mother just to discuss a page Geneen had written. I’ve even gone so far as to insist that all the women in my family buy a copy so we can read and discuss it together similar to they way my above mentioned friend went through it.

This book is a velvet hammer wrapped in humor. It’s an emotional roller coaster ride that takes you from laughter, to no-holds barred hits to the foundation of your belief systems and then back to humor before a quick turn through tears and back to humor again. I strongly recommend this book for every woman who has ever felt unhappy and dissatisfied with their body, dieted or played the on again/off again game with their weight.

It is a discovery of self that is eye opening to say the least. Read it and then tell me what your experience was. I really want to know.

Dark Light

Book Review of Dark Light (Harmony, #5) by Jayne Castle

My rating:4 of 5 stars

To be honest, I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the Harmony series until Dark Light caught my attention at the library. Within minutes of opening up the book I was hooked right back into the high-rez, psi-world. I have to be honest that I was a little disappointed that Fontana and Sierra didn’t get to experience the effects of the highly lustful after-burn of handling psi-energy but overall it was a great read. I will say this though, one of the things that makes the book so much fun is the ever present Elvis. Wondering how Elvis plays into all of this? Pick up the book and find out.
