I talk honestly and openly about my experiences with mental illness, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome through the lens of feminism, fat acceptance and process theology. I also do recipe and book reviews. My mission is to spread the message that hope is always real for a better life, despite living in a world that is often very harsh.

September Books

I had a super busy September and so I did not have time to read as much as I usually do. Hopefully there will be more books reviewed next month.

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish – Douglas Adams – This is the fourth in the Hitchhiker’s series and I love it. This is also the book where Arthur finally gets to fall in love and I must say I’m a sucker for the romance. I love the scene where Arthur teaches Fenchurch how to fly. I relate to Fenchurch more than any other character in that she is very misunderstood and labeled “crazy” by those around her.

Ivy’s Ever After – Dawn Lairamore - This is a great book to read together with a child. It is an exciting book about a princess that goes on a wild adventure where she deals with dragons, trolls, and fairies. I love the fact that while the main character does have a romantic interest, the book does not end with her getting married or even kissed. So refreshing! The girl I work with really got into it and we would guess together about what would happen next. I really recommend this book.
