This book was a bit of a mixed bag for me. It was a memoir about Hannah Howard‘s struggle with an eating disorder while working in the food industry. I really enjoyed the inside look at the foodie culture as I gravitate to those types of memoirs and I appreciated her honest examination of her battle with eating and self image. However her repeated poor choices in relationships got a little redundant after awhile.
The compulsively readable memoir of a woman at war—with herself, with her body, and with food—while working her way through the underbelly of New York City‘s glamorous culinary scene.
I haven‘t read this yet but I like the way it sounds.
I bailed on this one. It was pretty painful to read for a number of reasons. I think I keep wanting her to give me more information. Each chapter feels like a short journal entry and it leaves me hanging. I am frustrated by the writing style and the topic of her eating disorder is so painful to read. I think I will try this book another time and see if I can make it through the rest.
I don‘t want to sound like a jerk BUT I didn‘t really like Hannah as a person. The book itself was interesting but I felt like her and I would never be friends. She sounded like a whiny, entitled person the whole book which I was okay with (honestly) but when she had an affair with a married man I kind of grew to dislike her. Sorry if I‘m a horrible person but marriage vows are quite important to me.
Today's lunch & blog post--Giada's Asparagus Soup with Herbed Goat Cheese. The soup is good but the goat cheese balls with the soup make it great. 😋🍲
I did my #audiosouping to Code Girls (review on an earlier post) & spent a little time going through my Kindle. This book was my Kindle First pick from a couple months ago. It seems to have mixed reviews.
Soup recipe with my changes on the blog. Link below. 🍲❤️
This was an unexpected grab. It ended up being about a woman‘s struggle with an eating disorder. I found it to be very interesting. The language was basic and definitely below what I normally read, but was refreshing and easy to read.

This #hunger quote is from Feast, a memoir that addesses the despair of living with an eating disorder and the freedom that comes with recovery. Working in the restaurant and grocery biz, Hannah Howard's descriptions reflect her love of food as she struggles to find balance in work, love, and life. Way better than Sweetbitter for me. #quotsymarch18 @TK-421
