Love Warrior is an Oprah Book Club recommended read. Of course, I had to obey and find out what the fuss was about. Besides, I enjoy reading memoirs, gaining insight into an individual’s life.
Firstly, Glennon Doyle Melton can write, really well! This is the kind of book you pick up to read a few pages and end up reading chapters. It felt like I’d become her shrink, sitting on the couch listening to her story, the reasons for her life falling apart, yet unable to save her from self destruction. I couldn’t believe that one person could go through so much and stay sane.
Addiction stories speak deeply to me. Glennon’s life is riddled in low self-esteem, placing others first, not knowing what makes her happy. Her journey to self-discovery is painful, heartbreaking and truly courageous.
This book will take you on a roller-coaster ride of emotions. It will keep you fixated for hours, shaking your head, wondering if it will let up. Glennon’s words will stay with you even after you’ve read the final page, making you grateful for the life you have, despite your challenges.
A must-read five star rating!
