I really only read this book only because so many celebrities were reading it but let me just say celebrities have great taste apparently! In case you want to know what the book is about here’s a little description borrowed from Goodreads. (If not just skip ahead)

“Love Warrior is the story of one marriage, but it is also the story of the healing that is possible for any of us when we refuse to settle for good enough and begin to face pain and love head-on. This astonishing memoir reveals how our ideals of masculinity and femininity can make it impossible for a man and a woman to truly know one another – and it captures the beauty that unfolds when one couple commits to unlearning everything they’ve been taught so that they can finally, after thirteen years of marriage, fall in love.”

This book was very well written and full of truth bombs, such as “beauty is responsibility. People expect so much of it, it seems.”(pg.12) There’s a lot more but I’ll leave them for you to read and find yourself. If I wouldn’t have known better this is one of those biographies that you read and could confuse for fiction it was that crazy of a story and that well written.

Also, if you feel like you should read Glennon Doyle Melton’s other book before this one you don’t have to. There weren’t any references made that I did not understand despite not having read Carry On, Warrior or any of her blog posts. So if you’re thinking about reading but are hesitant because of those facts just go ahead and read it. Actually if you’re considering reading this book at all just go ahead and read it.
