I am reading a bunch of books from the ED list that are on Kindle Unlimited or that I have chosen to buy and I will post very brief reviews. I am not including the ones that I have read in the past since most people have heard of or already ready those (ie: Wasted, Best Little Girl in the World, etc)

 

 

Dancing with a Demon - Valerie Foster

 

I felt like this was a well-written and coherent book. Unfortunately, if you find 'miraculous' recoveries from ED's unbelievable you probably wouldn't like this book

 

 

The Anorexic Experiment - Angela Bacon Grimm

 

This book was pretty interesting with a couple twists, albeit not unexpected ones. The main issue I had is that the book doesn't really focus on the recovery aspect at all.

Love this!

 

If your looking for a good book about EDs I'd recommend checking out this series: https://www.amazon.c...nding=paperback

 

I met the author, she's really cool and is in recovery from anorexia. Her books are really good too, last one just came out and I'm obsessed!
