    As I sit here in rehab with my newly sober shakey hands just finishing Glennons Love Warrior in one night all I can think is thank freakin' god. .My heart fills my whole chest but does not hurt. I let her look right at me and she is not mad. She and I are the same. She loves me, I know it. She has been waiting for me. I sit in front of her and she is what I needed, she is the hiding place Iv been looking for. She is not mad. Glennon is my Mary. S...

    There were many parts of this book that I LOVED, parts that challenged me and made me think. Some of it felt self absorbed and frustrated me.

    With each chapter I read of this book, I thought of someone new I wanted to recommend it to. Eventually settling on everyone. Everyone should read this book. Love Warrior is about being vulnerable, shedding your "representative(s)", and being enough.

    This book just did not do it for me. I've read her blog some and her first book but this one just seemed to be choppy writing and SO much about her dislike of having sex. I generally enjoy her authenticity. I thought it droned on and on but clearly I'm in the minority on Goodreads.

    Self indulgent and long winded memoir of a "mom" blogger. I'm sad I cannot get the time back I spent reading this book. A true disappointed.

    3.5 Stars - not rounded upI may be in the minority on this one, but I had no idea who Glennon Doyle Melton was, I never heard of her first book, and I’ve never read her blog. As a young girl, she had body-image issues, the daughter of a practically perfect in every way mother, and spent most of her pre-teen years and beyond trying to attain her idea of a perfect body through anorexia and bulimia. As her friends become sexually intimate with the...

    I was excited to win the "advanced reader copy" lottery and get this book, but figured I'd finish it once my summer vacation had started - I finished it in 24 hours. I read Glennon Doyle Melton's other book - Carry On, Warrior - and loved her sense of humor and her writing style on her blog, but this book was a new voice I hadn't heard from her before that I loved. It was deep and weighty and lovely and poetic and heartbreaking. I am not nor ever...

    Thank you to Goodsread/author for sending me a copy of this book for review. So I've had quite a few problems with this book, but mostly just with the author. She was very whiny to me. She complained about her life a lot and I'm just asking what for? She wants to feel pretty, smart, accepted, etc. But why? We are almost never told why. The only thing we're given is when she was a little girl she was bigger and ate junk food. She wanted to lose we...

    This was such a powerful memoir of addiction and healing that I read it twice. I admit I didn't know who Glennon Doyle Melton was when I decided to read this book. A friend had said she liked her blog (called Momastery) and was excited about her new book, so I grabbed a copy for a buddy read.Glennon is so open and honest about her struggles with alcoholism and bulimia that you feel like her new best friend, and wow, are we having a heavy talk tod...

    I didn't know anything about Glennon Doyle Melton prior to reading this book. I had never read her blog or her previous work. I was attracted to this mostly because of the cover and the title but also because I had read that she was a recovering alcoholic.This memoir is about her struggles with her husband's infidelity and to find herself. I really enjoyed and got a lot out of the first 2/3 of this but then it went into way too much god and yoga ...
