    I thought this book was interesting It was crazy the lengths that Sarah went through in order to lose wait and battle her own demons I don t know if it was Sarah s personal demons that made her negative and at times mean spirited but no matter what her weight was at she was always selfish.I am a bigger girl in real life and it always saddens me in reality and fiction of how people can t see past the fat and don t realize why that person is the way that they are I felt this book covered Sarah s lack of will power and concept of self hate well.It was hard to fully love Sarah because of all her lies, negativity and selfishness but the Sarah starts to like her self the I was able to like her as well.At the same time while Sarah s is living in the basement you get to see her and Max s terrible sister relationship and see Max s struggles with her own demons and addictions.Even though there were drastic choices in the end it was what built the bridge to over come change, acceptance, love, hope and second chances.I loved the concept of love that measures over time but it broke my heart when Sarah s selfish ways screwed ...

    I think what originally captured my interest with this one was the possible rekindling of a lost love Also, I liked that the story seemed to involve two women who clearly have some issues that they need to work on I have to be honest though and mention that it took me a good while to really get into the book In the end, I did enjoy it Out of the two sisters, I liked Sarah initially Plus, I think that most woman, whether overweight or thin can relate to struggling to maintain weight It s an unfortunate struggle that woman carry I also understood her motivation for losing the weight Long lost loves are great motivators I did struggle with Sarah and Max s relationship a bit Granted, they are both dealing with some pretty challenging life issues, I just didn t seem to click with Max as much It was hard seeing how Sarah and Max treated each other too I m so close to my sister and I can t imagine having that much discord As for the romantic aspect to the story I really loved Harry I honestly wasn t sure how things would turn out with them though In the book, Sarah even mentions that she just needs to see if the love she had built up in her mind, was still the real deal I totally got that I ve been in that situation before For me, it didn t work out, but...

    I received a copy of Appetites by Karen Frankola from CLP Blog Tours as part of the blog tour.Wow I just couldn t put the book down I wanted to know how Sarah and her diet will turn out I understand that it was hard to control eating with all the temptation around But later, I found myself cheering for Sarah with her plan to lose weight I wanted her to succeed with her diet even though her plan sounded bizarre I enjoyed reading about the relationship between two sisters While they are mostly fighting, I could see that they cared for each other I wanted their relationship to get better because families are the one you can always turn to whenever you needed someone to rely on.Appetites by Karen Frankola was definitely an interesting read It tackled the issue of food and alcohol addiction, sisters relationship and how a long lost love can be a great motivation What I didn t really like was the graphic sex scenes I think the book would be as good without the romanc...
