Book Review: Cold Tangerines by Shauna Niequist
Cold Tangerines by Shauna Niequist
At BlogHer12 in NYC I had the priveledge of speaking with Zondervan and meeting Lisa Teurkist while I was there. I was able to get some books and though I was not obligated to do a review, I am a huge reader and while I did not have internet for 2 weeks after I got back at our new place I put down a few books including Cold Tangerines by Shauna Niequist.
Again I was under no obligation to write a review but I wanted to let you know about this awesome book because its an easy read and definitely a book you will not want to put down. I was able to read all 200+ pages in 3 days about 6 hrs total (maybe).
You know how some books the authors are kinda shallow and only scrape the surface of issues, not this one, Shauna lets it all out and not afraid to tell you when she fails. It’s a hard thing to do and I know all to well to let someone in your life and know all your secrets. Shauna has a lot that she felt were her secrets but her words inspired me to give it all to God, He is our Healer and He forgives.
Shauna reveals some stories of her life like how she wished her sister-in-law was a little bit bigger and not so skinny, but what she really was having a hard time was being ok with her body. I too struggle with weight in a sense. I’m over weight but I haven’t gained any sizes since my kids births I just haven’t lost the weight. But now is the time to do something. We as a family have already started eating healthier because of my mother’s medical conditions but as a family we have also started to walk more and be more active. We are also eating at home and not fast food because of finances but also we need to live a much healthier life.
Sorry to get off on a tangent but if you want an inspirational book that will help you get motivated and see that other people are struggling with the same or similar problems you are then pick up a copy of Cold Tangerines by Shuana Niequist.
This book was provided to me by Zondervan at BlogHer12 but I was under no obligation to do a review. All opinions above are of my own and not influenced by anyone or company.
