Spirit Junkie: A Radical Road to Self-Love and Miracles - Gabrielle Bernstein

I had a major book slump going on this year which is pretty apparent in that I barely read 100 books in 2013 when i usually top out closer to 200. Also, most of the stories I did read this year were novellas or anthologies because I just couldn't muster the energy to start a full length novel. With that in mind, here is the list of the best books/novellas/short stories I read in 2013. Here's hoping 2014 is better!

quote 2013-10-19 23:40
The world around me taught the thinking of inequality, separateness, and competition, and better-than and less-than. I was led to value money, a romantic partner, and success as driving factors for true happiness. The world taught me to believe in archetypes like mean girls, hot guys, rid dads, poor kids, cool crowds, and loser who sat alone at lunch. I was supposed to believe this world was real, but deep down I didn't fully buy it. In my mind a battle raged between what I was taught to believe and a deep-rooted intuition that there was something more. My inner voice was screaming, "Wake up, girl, there's a better way!"

Spirit Junkie: A Radical Road to Self-Love and Miracles
Spirit Junkie: A Radical Road to Self-Love and Miracles - Gabrielle Bernstein I will be the first one to admit that I enjoy reading self-improvement books, and that I was very excited to investigate Gabrielle Bernstein's ideas.I will also admit to being a teensy bit disappointed.In this book, Bernstein talks about her life changes and experiences as a result of her work in "A Course in Miracles." I think she tried just a bit too hard to be hip and cutesy with her own take on the work, frankly. Referring to her inner guide as ~ing wasn't so bad, but the constant puns (e.g., ~ingTervention) got a little old. I understand that Bernstein's target audience is a little younger than me, but somehow I doubt that people in need of what she's trying to get across are concerned with "cutesy."I found the segments where Bernstein talks about her own life far more interesting than the parts where she tries to be a teacher. I did pick up some good suggestions, but they were primarily to be found in quotations from the Course books.This book could have benefited from a bibliography or list of additional resources beyond Bernstein's website and Facebook page.(Review based on uncorrected advance proof.)
