Mirror, Mirror, Off the Wall by Kjerstin Gruys

I’ve loved Kjerstin and her blog for ages, but will admit that I had my reservations about this book. Could it really be that interesting to read about her mirror-free year? A year is a long time, and even with the big twist – the fact that she was planning her wedding during the year in question – I worried that the text would become dry or repetitive. But friends? This book is as juicy, fun, engaging, and insightful as it could possibly be.¬†Kjerstin’s voice is conspiratorial and accessible, even as she’s dishing out statistics and summarizing studies. Yeah, I know. Quite a feat. And, of course, her own thoughts and reflections about her experiences are utterly fascinating. It’s a great read. Easy, interesting, and fast while being informative and eye-opening. The package. Ever so good and worth reading. read more
