The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin

A unique read, as the children in the beginning go to see a fortune teller, where they all allow her to define when they will ‘die’ as part of her meeting with each of them. While so many of us may be afraid of dying, the perspective of each of the siblings, and how they let this ‘date’ define their lives. Each of their personalities show as they go through their siblings deaths, life events, and the aging process - you realize just how defining each event in your life could be if you were waiting for your death date.

It raised more questions than a normal fiction novel would, as the story was moving in how our most precious relationships are sometimes overlooked until it is too late. It made me want to remember to be present, live today not waiting for ‘more’ and to enjoy each step of the journey.

THE GODDESS REVOLUTION

Written by Mel Wells, this book changed how I thought my relationship with food looked on page one. Finding food freedom and dealing with emotional eating this book is a must read for anyone who has ever struggled in any way with food and body image. I eat when I'm anxious, and new situations and circumstances can cause this to advance quickly. 

I'm in a perpetual stop/start with books, so I am in the middle of this one, too. I will finish my review when I finish, but for now click the photo below to take you to get this one for yourself!

It helps you come up with a plan of action and realize that this is a gift, not a curse, and we have time to do all the things we fall in love with, and maybe even be more successful because of it.

Currently, I am only halfway through and have already cleared up so many small details that I have been hung up on recently, and the clarity and relief I feel is incredible. Get out your notebook, and get ready to be amazed at what can happen when you break things down for yourself.
