Slim to None by Jenny Gardiner

Slim to None by Jenny Gardiner is a book about Abbie Jennings who happens to love her job as a top Food Critic. Abbie ends up losing her position at the paper because she gets recognized and finds it hard to hide herself due to her size. Abbie decides to do something about her weight in order to get her job back and this is her journey.

When I read what this book was about I thought I would really enjoy it but honestly I had to force myself to keep reading. I didn't really find a problem with the writing and the recipes shared were a very cute touch. Mainly it boiled down to I just didn't like Abbie - at all. I wanted to like her but it wasn't happening. I was not a fan of her fat jokes, the way she treated her husband or her ability to delude herself in regards to her diet. I just could not like her. I did like Thor, from the gym, and I liked the message that the book was trying to send. I would not recommend this book to a friend but because of the writing I would be inclined to check out another of Jenny Gardiner's books.

This book was provided to me by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
