i could not stop reading this book
by portia de rossi
amazing. so raw and real.
it’s a must read -
no matter if you have an eating disorder (of any type) or not
or know someone with an eating disorder or not.
it simply opens your mind to how much damage we do to ourselves.
how lost we can be even when we seem so together.
there were so many parts of me that were scared to even pick it up
afraid of how close to home it was going to hit.
i cried, i cringed, i saw myself and i learned.
it takes a strong and a powerful woman to show her vulnerabilities to the world.
my rating: 5/5
**rating scale – stars: out of 5
1 star: not a fan – at all. i couldn’t finish the book.
1.5 stars: not worth my time. definitely, thought about putting it down and moving on to something else.
2 stars: fine. nothing to write home about.
2.5 stars: was ok, but if i hadn’t read it i’d live.
3 stars: enjoyed the book but was bothered by a particular aspect.
3.5 stars: glad i read it. would recommend it but isn’t one that stays in my permanent collection (i won’t be moving it with me to my next apartment).
4 stars: i really enjoyed this book. had no problem getting through it and would recommend it to my friends and family.
4.5 stars: loved it. lingers on my mind – actively promoting for others to read.
