As someone who has struggled with weight for my whole life, I greatly appreciated this book. This book proves, using evidenced-based research, that traditionally recommended weight loss strategies do not work and WHY. It provides a fairly radical solution. I am a public health professional, so the sound logic, research, and personal experience the author uses is really what sets this book apart for me. Wish me luck on testing out this plan! 💪🏻

rethier1 I recommend this book for anyone who is looking to understand their bodies better and improve their diet - not just those who want to lose weight!! 🤓 (edited) 2mo
flying_monkeys Have you ever read The Metabolic Typing Diet? If so, curious how The Obesity Code compares to the The Metabolic Typing. 1mo
rethier1 @flying_monkeys I have not read that particular book, but I have tried diets based on my metabolism type. I am an endomorph, so those diets aligned pretty well with what The Obesity Code recommends (low carb). However, the Obesity Code focuses less on caloric restriction and more of fasting. I have gotten much better results following the Obesity Code than any other diet, so far. 😁 Fasting seems to be the key for me. 1mo
flying_monkeys Thanks! I may have to give that one a read then. I haven't heard about the fasting approach before. 1mo
rethier1 @flying_monkeys I had never considered fasting before either! This book builds a strong case for why it makes total sense, though. It also isn‘t as hard as I thought it would be haha 1mo

Things You Save in a Fire | Katherine Center

I really enjoyed this #botm pick! While many romance novels seem like unrealistic fairytales, this one was written for today‘s reality. It featured a strong female main character and gracefully incorporated some of today‘s most troubling issues, including the #opioidepidemic, the #metoo movement, and #glassceiling. The overall message of the book is the importance and power of #forgiveness, even in the most difficult circumstances.

While I really wanted to like this series, it was really lacking. The story and characters are superficial and are not properly developed. I think it had the potential to be a great #ya series, but just fell way short for me.

Looks like I am the first to review this one! This popped up on my Kindle as an ad. I am a sucker for YA supernatural crap, so I couldn‘t resist 😜 This is the first book in the series. While the premise is interesting and the story is fast-paced, it seemed like it was over way too soon. It is missing something. I am hoping the next book dives deeper into the characters and plot. Otherwise, I will probably discontinue the series. #YA #vampires

I enjoyed this book very much. The main characters had great chemistry and character development. There was just enough tension and witty banter to keep me turning the pages, but not so much that it became annoying/tiresome. Very cute story.

I really enjoyed The Hating Game, so I was excited to read this one. Sadly, I did not enjoy it as much. It was just okay.

Sarahreadstoomuch Felt the same way! 4mo
Maria514626 Ah. I have this out from the library. I may return it based on your reviews. Too many books backed up for a meh. Loved the Hating Game! (edited) 3mo

I really enjoyed this one! The writing was fantastic and I really liked the main character. This book was fast-paced and very hard to put down (definitely stayed up too late reading it 🤓). Although it had the potential to be very dark and scary, it was not overly so. I learned after reading the book that it will soon be a movie starring Amy Adams! 🤩#thewomaninthewindow #ajfinn #danielmallory #unputdownable #booktomovie

JohannaRose I loved this book and I had no idea it was going to be made into a movie! That‘s awesome! 4mo
rethier1 @JohannaRose I didn‘t either! It apparently comes out in October! 😻 4mo
JohannaRose @rethier1 Oh wow that soon! I‘ll be looking for it! Thanks 😊 4mo

Wow, believe the hype, people! This will probably be one of the best books of the year. It was thought-provoking and fascinating. Can‘t wait to see what #Netflix (#shondarhimes #mattreeves) does with this one. #botm #recursion #blakecrouch #unputdownable #mindblown

allthingskayla Wait, it is going to be put on Netflix?! 😱 4mo
rethier1 @allthingskayla Yes, ma‘am! Netflix picked it up before it was even published 🤩 4mo
allthingskayla @rethier1 😱😱😱 you just made my day. I loved the book, so I‘m excited to see it on screen now. 4mo

Macnjen Is it important to read “Dark Matter” first? 4mo
rethier1 @Macnjen I have not read Dark Matter, so I do not think so. 4mo
Kboltz @Macnjen no need to read Dark Matter to read this... bit you should anyway because it‘s good too!:) 4mo

I was not sure how much I would be able to relate to this book, given that I do not have children. But I was pleasantly surprised! The writing is clever and witty - some parts are just hilarious. The plot was creative and it easily held my interest.
