Consciousness towards diet has increased effectively with time among every age group. This is due to several reasons like increasing amount of diseases and deficiencies in the human bodies which is most of the times a cause of improper diet. The diet does not consist of the proper calculations of the vitamins, minerals, proteins and calories in the right ratio. The quality of grains, cereals and other substitutes has deteriorated with time.

 

Hence, people are more conscious about their diet and most of the times prefer reliable options for completing their diets with the right and high-quality supplements so that the body does not go deficient of any vital substituent.

Nor Iron Bars a Cage by Kaje Harper
Nor Iron Bars a Cage - Kaje Harper

I would love to know more about pretty much everyone in this book (other than Lyon and Xen). More about Tobin and the king. More about that annoying captain, who drove Lyon crazy in the second part of the story. There is So. Much! Loved it.

Going Great Til Last 12 Percent
Stories I'd Tell in Bars - Jen Lancaster

I do love Jen Lancaster's memoirs. For the most part I have enjoyed them all, though there were two I was pretty meh about after finishing. This one gets four stars from me, I deducted a star because she includes her script for a housewife dramedy that I guess she pitched to people in Hollywood. It just felt like a lazy way for her to end her memoir. I needed a better wrap up than the one she gave us readers. 

 

Now that Lancaster is almost 50, she seems way more laid back and pragmatic about her upbringing and how that affected her as an adult.

 

We get more details about her wedding day to Fletch (her husband) and I found myself sympathizing with her. We also get to read about her newfound pushes to lose weight and eat healthy. We also got a hilarious story (sorry it happened!) about her and her friends trip to Italy with the worst tour ever. Let's just say fleabites were involved.

 

What I really enjoyed about this one is that if you have been reading Jen for a long time there are a lot of callbacks to earlier incidents so it was nice to read the other side of things, and or find out what happened after something is brought up in a book (i.e. Jen learning Italian).

 

I also get that Lancaster is dealing with a sense of not knowing where she belongs in the book community. She is writing YA books (I have not read those) and she wrote one book called "women's literature" that I thought was okay (By the Numbers). I think she sees a lot of new authors popping up via other means and doesn't know what to do since she's not the next new hot thing. I would suggest if she still loves to do it, keep writing her memoirs. And also, I wouldn't be in a hurry to tap into a market. I would just write what she knows/likes and see where she can go from. Not every book is going to be "The Hate U Give" kind of awesome.

 

As I said above, I was not thrilled with the last 12 percent of the book just being her script for a television show. I don't know what she or her editor were thinking. It just felt lazy and I can now see why some readers were not that happy with this one. If I exclude that last 12 percent this would have been a 5 star book, with it, it's only 4 stars.

Reading progress update: I've read 74%.
Stories I'd Tell in Bars - Jen Lancaster

Still laughing. I have to say though the book is slowing down a bit for me. Just got done reading about how Jen and Fletch (her husband) started doing ride alongs in their area and though the stories of the nice policemen is nice and all....I still have a hard time believing it. I get that the majority of the police are good guys, it's sad my first reaction is to see a police officer and tense the hell up and get as far away from them as I can without looking suspicious.

At 50 percent and have been howling! Dying at the messed up Italy trip and her and Fletch trying to befriend and not alienate new neighbors. Love the additions by Jen. I also get her angst by being pushed out of the YA market and people acting as of her stories are not what people want. Pshaw. Keep writing.
