Book Reviews

WELCOME TO THE BOOK REVIEWS PAGE!

My goal is to provide you with helpful and informative reviews of books as I read them (at my snail reading pace). They will be books that I have found helpful in some way or that I think provide valuable information to women and Mom’s who are on a quest to improve themselves physically and emotionally through either fitness and/ or mental and emotional awareness and growth.  I am by no means a professional book reviewer, but I will do my best! Enjoy the journey!
