Marian is determined to be ordinary. She lays her head gently on the shoulder of her serious fiancé and quietly awaits marriage. But she didn't count on an inner rebellion that would rock her stable routine, and her digestion. Marriage a la mode, Marian discovers, is something she literally can't stomach ... The Edible Woman is a funny, engaging novel about emotional cannibalism, men and women, and desire to be consumed.

I listened to this a while back. It was good. Well written and I enjoyed the narrator. But man! I have gone back and listened a few times. I Love this story and it has made me a huge fan of Margaret Atwoods books. I knew that for Audibles contest this would be the one I choose to review! #Audible1 Definitely ahead of its time. I wonder what it would have been like to pick this up and read it when it was first released. ❤

It's wedding season on Nantucket. The beautiful island is overrun with summer people - an annual source of aggravation for year-round residents. When one lavish wedding ends in disaster before it can even begin - with the bride-to-be discovered dead in Nantucket Harbor just hours before the ceremony - everyone in the wedding party is suddenly a suspect. As Chief of Police Ed Kapenash digs into the best man, the maid of honor, the groom's famous mystery novelist mother, and even a member of his own family, the chief discovers that every wedding is a minefield - and no couple is perfect.

Hygge is the Danish idea of being cozy, of feeling warmth, and of being content in your life, and it has been practiced for hundreds of years. If you want to know how to spend more time with those you love, then this is one audiobook you simply must hear....

Plum Kettle does her best not to be noticed because when you're fat, to be noticed is to be judged. She is biding her time at a job answering fan mail for a popular teen girls' magazine until she can afford weight-loss surgery. But lately she is being followed by a girl in outlandish clothes and combat boots.

I enjoyed this book. It was well written and I liked the characters. But it feels like something is missing. I felt like the ending was a bit 'thrown together' and not at all what I had been expecting. A little anti climatic. But.. I loved the message about loving yourself <3

They call themselves the May Mothers - a collection of new moms who gave birth in the same month. Twice a week, with strollers in tow, they get together in Prospect Park, seeking refuge from the isolation of new motherhood. When the group’s members agree to meet for drinks at a hip local bar, they have in mind a casual evening of fun, a brief break from their daily routine. But on this sultry Fourth of July night during the hottest summer in Brooklyn’s history, something goes terrifyingly wrong: one of the babies is taken from his crib.
