… these three amazing, body-positive books. And the fact that I’m lucky enough to be friends with their authors.
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.
