I’m back once again with yet another book review. I swear there will be more real posts coming soon, I think. This is yet another book that was part of the Paper&Glam book club selections. It took me a while to get around to reading this book, but here’s the review on Love Warrior.
In the book Glennon Doyle Melton writes a narrative about her life and her marriage to her husband Craig. Through out the book is woven bits of her life that includes overcoming an eating disorder, being a drug addict, and having an abortion. The reader is able to journey with Glennon from the days before she got the eating disorder to meeting Craig and into part of their marriage. If you like a wandering narrative book this is one for you. However, I was less than impressed with this book. This is my first Glennon Doyle Melton book and I have never followed her blog Momastery. But like many of several of the book chatters in the Paper & Glam book club. I found the book almost annoying to read. It felt as if I was reading someone’s wordy diary. I felt in someways mocked that she continually felt that she couldn’t be her real self in life and had to hide.
If you follow the news at all you will know that Glennon Doyle Melton’s marriage to Craig was dissolved close to the release of the book. I’m glad that Glennon was able to work through her difficulties and manage to make a life for their children and finally be her true self.
I hope to have more posts coming soon. Please stay tuned. Let me know if you have read this book and what you thought of it.
