    Often, you know from the first few sentences on whether you are going to like a book or not Well, this one had my attention from the start There are some things that I could recognize and that adds somehing to the story for me The book is a fluent read and the most important thing about it is how to be good to yourself Maybe you thought you were doing that already, but when you take a closer look, it did not seem to be that way.It was full of funny things, romance, friendship and the ending Often, you know from the first few sentences on whether you are going to like a book or not Well, this one had my attention from the start There are some things that I could recognize and that adds somehing to the story for me The book is a fluent read and the most important thing about it is how to be good to yourself Maybe you thought you were doing that already, but when you take a closer look, it did not seem to be that way.It was full of funny things, romance, friendship and the ending well you saw it coming, but that s the way it is in this genre.i really enjoyed it

    4.5 stars.I don t normally climb on a soapbox in my reviews, but please bear with me I ve noticed quite a few reviews of Wardell s work, while positive, dismiss her books as cute beach reads or the like I m paraphrasing, but that sums it up, and I ve seen it quite a bit.I read a lot of dark fiction, including true crime But with the American election looming, the Standing Rock catastrophe, the Black Lives Matter crisis, Syria and the latest terrorist attack overseas, the world can be a damn 4.5 stars.I don t normally climb on a soapbox in my reviews, but please bear with me I ve noticed quite a few reviews of Wardell s work, while positive, dismiss her books as cute beach reads or the like I m paraphrasing, but that sums it up, and I ve seen it quite a bit.I read a lot of dark fiction, including true crime But with the American election looming, the Standing Rock catastrophe, the Black Lives Matter crisis, Syria and the latest terrorist attack overseas, the world can be a damn depressing place I desperately needed something that would keep me from wanting to jump out a window, something that would lift my spirits.Good to Myself did that, and in such an engaging and entertaining way Wardell creates characters that breathe, and while they are flawed and definitely have their share of struggles, there s a strong message of optimism than runs through her books It s part of what makes them so enjoyable to read.So climbs on soapbox books like these, that lift our spirits and give us someone to root for someone whom we know is going to find her happy ending are just as important and worthwhile as Tolstoy and Steinbeck Perhapsso, because if we want bleakness, we don t need to read 1000 pages we can just go on social media for five minutes.I ve read or attempted to read a lot of shitty, trite women s fiction If you like Wardell s work enough to take it with you on vacation, that s the result of a lot of talent and evenhard work Let us not dismiss the happy books as light Because nowadays,than ever, they re doing a hell of a lot of heavy lifting steps off soapbox And yeah, I really liked this book In case you couldn t tell

    Heather Wardell might be putting these books out just a bit too fast Sure, they re light, fluffy, and a good escape but they re all starting to sound the same How is Lydia really that different from Andrea in A Life That Fits, for instance The themes are getting repetitive, so I hope Wardell starts to stretch her wings a bit.

    Firstly I d like to thank the author for sending me this eBook to read and give an honest review I am a big fan of Heather Wardell s writing.The story began with Lydia s memory of a hot kiss with Felix, now I m all for a scene which includes hot kissing but unfortunately I found that I couldn t quite connect with it because it happened so early on I just didn t feel like I knew the characters enough at that point However, as I got to know them better I began to see the significance of that m Firstly I d like to thank the author for sending me this eBook to read and give an honest review I am a big fan of Heather Wardell s writing.The story began with Lydia s memory of a hot kiss with Felix, now I m all for a scene which includes hot kissing but unfortunately I found that I couldn t quite connect with it because it happened so early on I just didn t feel like I knew the characters enough at that point However, as I got to know them better I began to see the significance of that moment Lydia had been crushing on her boss Felix since she first started working with him but seemed to be playing hard to get until the kissing incident.When the challenge was set for Lydia and her work colleagues to be good to yourself for four weeks, Lydia already felt that she had it all figured out and it would be easy This is why I found it so fascinating to follow her progress because she certainly found it harder than she thought she would Lydia s life soon became rather complicated Romantic problems her sexy boss was making it very clear that he wanted her, she felt confused by her changing feelings towards her friend Percy and she also had an unhealthy way of dealing with her sexual frustration.Family problems her parents were refusing to accept that they needed to move out of their home and she faced the wrath of her persistent sister if she didn t try to persuade them.Work problems the good to yourself challenge was muchof a challenge than she first thought and it meant that she had to rethink her lifestyle, particularly her cheesecake habit As always with this authors books there was a message to take in, this time I felt the main message was that treating yourself all the time doesn t necessarily make you happy, if you want to achieve a balanced lifestyle sometimes you need to be a bit tougher on yourself and go without.As Lydia came to realise all this, her attitude began to change and I loved seeing her transform before my eyes, what happened in the run up to the end was perfect and left me with a big smile on my face.This was an enjoyable, feel good read which left a good message in my mind

    Good to Myself is the tenth book in Wardell s Toronto series Taken from the author s website www.heatherwardell.com While these books don t form a strict series, they are all set in the same area of Toronto and some of the earlier books characters and locations do make appearances in later books I don t think you d completely spoil your reading experience by picking them up out of order, but you would definitely find spoilers of how the earlier books end I ve loved each and every book in Good to Myself is the tenth book in Wardell s Toronto series Taken from the author s website www.heatherwardell.com While these books don t form a strict series, they are all set in the same area of Toronto and some of the earlier books characters and locations do make appearances in later books I don t think you d completely spoil your reading experience by picking them up out of order, but you would definitely find spoilers of how the earlier books end I ve loved each and every book in the Toronto series and recommend them all I always have to make sure that I have several hours to sit and read once I start one of Wardell s books, because I have to read them in one to two sittings They are just that good So, it was with great excitement that I started Good to Myself I was so happy to read Good to Myself just after the New Year It was a great time to read a book about making better choices for yourself The choices Lydia makes for her life gave me the motivation to make some better personal choices like cutting back on sugar and, like Lydia, inspired me to try hot tea instead of a sugary latte I enjoyed this book a lot although I did have trouble identifying with some aspects of Lydia s personality, there were many things about her that really resonated with me I especially liked that she was an Internet columnist, as many of her work concerns were similar to my blogging issues.I loved the conflict resolution and the way the story ended It was a perfect ending, emotional without being too sappy I also am quite interested in the next book in the series, which is Larissa s story I ve always wondered about Larissa and look forward to readingabout her.If you haven t read Heather Wardell yet, I highly recommend her work Her first novel and one of my favorites is free on her website www.heatherwardell.com

    I really love Wardell s books and several have resonated with me A Life that Fits was a book that came at the right time in my life That being said, I didn t have the same experience with Good to Myself Although I like the premise, I felt like it didn t go far enough in what being good to yourself means Also, Wardell s novels have always been quick, fun reads but I found with this one there were so many short chapters with details that did not seem to advance the plot that made it difficu I really love Wardell s books and several have resonated with me A Life that Fits was a book that came at the right time in my life That being said, I didn t have the same experience with Good to Myself Although I like the premise, I felt like it didn t go far enough in what being good to yourself means Also, Wardell s novels have always been quick, fun reads but I found with this one there were so many short chapters with details that did not seem to advance the plot that made it difficult for me to stay in the story.Overall, I still love reading a chick novel set in Toronto and about women dealing with sex and relationship issues in complex ways I do look forward tofrom Wardell

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I really enjoyed this book, for the most part It was well written and interesting A bit predictable but it didn t make the story boring which was good I liked most of the characters which was unusual for me There were one or two things that annoyed me about the story but that was due to the personality of the character which was needed for the story to go ahead so I think that was necessary All in all, I would definitely I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I really enjoyed this book, for the most part It was well written and interesting A bit predictable but it didn t make the story boring which was good I liked most of the characters which was unusual for me There were one or two things that annoyed me about the story but that was due to the personality of the character which was needed for the story to go ahead so I think that was necessary All in all, I would definitely recommend this book.Heather Wardell

    I love all Heather s books but this one I didn t like as much as the others It took me a while to get into the story and the kiss between Felix and Lydia felt like a lat minute addition, it didn t feel like it was part of the story so I couldn t relate to or understand the attraction between the two characters I did enjoy reading the story but this one is definately my least favourite of all the books in the Torronto Series.
