  • The EveryGirl's Guide to Diet and Fitness: How I Learned to Eat Right, Dropped 40 Pounds, and Took Control of My Life-- And How You Can Too!
  • Author: Maria Menounos

    I saw this book on our shelves alongside the Cameron Diaz Body Book and decided to do a face off. Wohooo!

    Everygirl's Guide was a pretty good health book. She's super smiley in her pictures and it's all rather adorable. She covers her own techniques and interviews a host of other celebrities on theirs. Nothing is super faddy. Her biggest recommendation, for example, is to drink hot water. I did like that her exercise suggestions were doable and my favorite part was that she often demonstrated the poor girl's technique right next to her trainer doing the same move on spendy equipment. It was a fun read with some usable suggestions.

    Compare that to Diaz's Body Book (I cannot find an entry in GoodReads for the book so cannot put this into the proper review format). I struggled through 80 pages and ended up so nauseated by all the "hey, we're just girlfriends chillaxing, yeah, so awesome" that I flat out stopped. Boo. = 0 stars

  • Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead
  • Author: Brené Brown
  • User Rating: 4
  • Review: TCL Call Number: 158 BROWN B

    Diana's rating: 4 stars
    This book can get you revved up to make some changes in your life...the author (who has an excellent TED talk that you should definitely see) did research on the subject of vulnerability for 12 years, going from seeing it as an excruciating emotion to seeing it as exquisite. You will learn about blame and disengagement. Uncomfortable. And then wholeheartedness and engagement. Things to strive for in your life!
    She contrasts the experiences of men and women, important to understand those differences in your relationships. Dare greatly and read this book!

  • Station Eleven
  • Author: Emily St. John Mandel
  • User Rating: 4
  • Review: TCL Call Number: SF Mandel E

    Kurt's rating: 4 stars
    A swift and deadly plague sweeps through the world, leaving survivors to deal with their new reality - a world bereft of the technologies they relied on. The story, though, is more about the way the main characters are connected through unrealized relationships stretching back to before disease changed the world.

    This is a great novel for the Halloween season. It has enough creepiness and suspense to keep you reading, but not so much to keep you up at night. It's blend of reality and fiction with just a touch of insanity keeps you guessing throughout the book and wondering about yourself in the end.
