★★★★★

How can I do justice to the profound, brilliant, heart-wrenching book that is Dumplin‘? This book was soul-stirring, with a humorous dialog. Watching Willowdean fight her own demons without her Aunt Lucy in her corner was difficult, but it makes the book all the more real and powerful.

If you want a book that radiates body-positivity and that makes you want to laugh (and cry). This book is for you. This book is for everyone.

A pretty good book. I think I had built it up in my head, so it felt a little disappointing. I didn‘t like Bo, I don‘t know if that is an unpopular opinion or not, but it just bugged me how she kept going back to him. I wish that the drag queen bar had made more of an appearance than just two chapters, but it was still a good book. I‘ll probably watch the movie soon, too. 4⭐️

I walked into this knowing the little that I knew from the Netflix adaptation but the book was definitely better.

Once I got into reading this and having Willowdean in my head, I stayed way past what I should have to finish it because there is definitely more to this book than the tiaras and pageants. She is such a voice, aware of herself and her shortcomings, loves with all her heart, and like many wonders where she fits in the world.

#Movie2BookRecs #jenniferaniston 23. I loved both of these so much, just a fun story. But if you want a little more crazy family, mother/daughter dynamics, The Secret Life of Bees with Queen Latifah is a good one too.

Klou Great choices! 1y

I really enjoyed Dumplin' It was super cute and very “feel good love yourself“ type of book (which is nice to have sometimes)

Umm????

So, I am doing nothing on New Years, I will be going to get some stuff to make mimosas and plan to not leave my bed! Just going to chill for the new year.

I did a whole #21for21 thing :)

So all I can think of right now is Edward Cullen but I don't know if that would be my favorite but.. thats where my mind is going (maybe because I am reading the Midnight Sun)

Way to put me on the spot! Um... Swimming? I have no idea

I work Christmas so.. no plans other than work and eating?

I know its controversial now but this is my favorite. And my fav singer of it

https://youtu.be/3qFK5YFvTYE

ElizaMarie (so funny story, one year my husband and I went to Vegas and saw Pip the Magic Dragon. So, he picked me .. asked me to name something interesting about me. And I said... I am from Texas. (totally drew a blank!) then the rest of the show I was heckled (friendly) about being from Texas. Like he would say stuff like “thats cool but... I mean its not like your from Texas“ or someone had said they were cancer free and he said “but are you from Texas!?“ 2y
ElizaMarie it was all fun! Then.. after the show we would see people at the tables and these guys would be like hey TEXAS girl! or MISS TEXAS! Like days later.. ) Moral of story - I can't think quickly on my feet

1. I think I do read a ton of YA well its a good mix of other genres but.. I don't think I have a fav character? Maybe I would say Hermione (if she counts as YA).

So I binged this one like crazy! I had a day where I was doing errands and its so not hard to finish a whole book (9hrs) in a span of 48 hrs :) Anyway this was really cute. It made me sad though about all the “fat“ things she was so scared of! And I get it .. truly I do but its just sad :( #TBRread

TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 2y
ElizaMarie @AkashaVampie I think so! I mean I loved hearing about her life more. But the movie that has Dolly and drag queens which I loved watching that part of the movie! But the book also made me super sad. It went into hear head and the way she fat shames herself was really heartbreaking 2y
AkashaVampie @ElizaMarie yeah I totally felt that way too. 2y

Whatcha Doin? Havent done much today. Had to wake up early for a dentist appointment for me and the hubby (which I hate going to the doctors... hubby is making me 😒). Then we had to come back home for my son's therapy session. And havent done shit since... just watching Private Practice. I need to get on some chores tho. Just no energy to do it. All I wanna do it lay back down.

The word fat makes people uncomfortable. But when you see me, the first thing you notice is my body. And my body is fat. It‘s like how I notice some girls have big boobs or shiny hair or knobby knees. Those things are okay to say. But the word fat, the one that best describes me, makes lips frown and cheeks lose their color.

I don‘t have to wear a dress to work. There‘s a pants option, too. But the elastic waist on the polyester pants wasn‘t quite elastic enough to fit over my hips. I say the pants are to blame. I don‘t like to think of my hips as a nuisance, but more of an asset. I mean, if this were, like, 1642, my wide birthing hips would be worth many cows or something.

yup.... i know the feeling :(

SteffK @AkashaVampie I think I've looked into this book before..... definitely added to my tbr list after your few quotes posted. Have a great day! 2y

El is everything I am not. Tall, blond, and with this impossible goofy yet sexy paradox going on that only seems to exist in romantic comedies. She‘s always been at home in her own skin.

Does this bug u when they change what they look like for movies or shows?

So I feel like I have been working my butt off lately. So I am gunna take this night for myself and read. I hope that isn't selfish. Plus I have an appointment that I am dreading tomorrow (the dentist) and need to get out of my head. So I will jump into my choice for #NWC for December. I loved the movie and really have wanted to get into this book. Me being a bigger girl and all, it connects with me.

A sweet book about judging girls based on looks. Girls are sent so many messages about their bodies - by their moms, peers, media, society. These messages become stories that run an incessant loop in their heads. A great reminder for everyone of how we need to stop judging others and ourselves.

I listened to this on audio, and it hit me right in the feelings. I felt I could draw so many parallels between Will's story and my own experiences as a (plus sized) teen. I don't often connect with YA, but this was a rare exception. I chose this because it was available on Libby and ticked the box for #booked2020 #millenialauthor, but I ended up coming away with way more than I expected.

Starting this audiobook this afternoon. It will fill my last #Winter prompt for #booked2020, #MilennialAuthor! I'm already looking toward the next season's prompts and making plans. I really want to read at least 100 books this year, so I'm trying to keep up a good pace, splitting my time between audio and print.

This was a cute and funny story on the surface. Underneath it contradicted its body positivity message in a lot of ways. I enjoyed the characters and look forward to reading the next book. The book dragged a bit in the middle then seemed to end very quickly. Would have liked more details. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
