Review: Treasure Yourself by Miranda Kerr

Title: Treasure Yourself: Power Thoughts for My Generation

Author: Miranda Kerr

Publisher: Hay House

Pub date: 12/3/2012

Summary from Goodreads:

In Treasure Yourself, international supermodel Miranda Kerr offers her own view on how her generation and those following can achieve greater health and happiness. Miranda believes that one of the most powerful tools to facilitate change is positive affirmation and she has collected over 100 affirmations from some of the world's most inspirational authors including Louise L. Hay, Wayne W. Dyer, Deepak Chopra and many more.

This is a book for empowering young girls and helping them boost their self-esteem. I like that she has questions at the end of the sections, so it can be used like a workbook. This book was colorful with butterflies and flowers in it. It's a very girly book. My favorite parts were the pictures of her and her family. She looks exactly the same from when she was a baby. I also like the affirmations/power thoughts in the back of the book.

My Teaser:

I cleared the steam wand and dipped it deep into the stainless steel pitcher. One trick for steaming milk (as I tell my new baristas) is to keep your hand on the bottom of the metal container.

Review: Data, A Love Story: How I Gamed Online Dating to Meet My Match by Amy Webb

Title: Data, A Love Story: How I Gamed Online Dating to Meet My Match

Author: Amy Webb

Publisher: Dutton Adult

Pub date: 1/31/13

Source: Edelweiss

Summary from Goodreads:

Forty million people date online each year. Most don’t find true love. Thanks to Data, a Love Story, their odds just got a whole lot better.

Data, A Love Story: How I Gamed Online Dating to Meet My Match is a lively, thought-provoking memoir about how one woman “gamed” the world of online dating—and met her eventual husband.
My thoughts/review:

I found out about this book from Oprah magazine. I'm glad I found it.This was really good. Even though I knew the happy ending was coming, I was still rooting for Amy throughout the story. She felt like a friend talking about her many dating woes until she found her husband. This was fabulous. I laughed and almost cried. My favorite parts were the bad dates and when she met her husband. The dates were so terrible that they were funny. I was reading and talking back to the book. That's when you know a book is truly good.
