In the book Haupert, author of the healthy living blog Carrots N' Cake tries to show us what a balanced lifestyle looks like using a day in the life approach, similar to the style she takes on her blog. Unfortunately, this approach was not at all successful for me. It meant that the book didn't really flow at all and often seemed to be dragging on without purpose. And without the abundance of photos on her blog and the interaction from readers, the writing fell flat. Her description was often bland and generic, failing to bring the story to life. Many of the anecdotes in the book failed to make a point and almost felt like they had been included for filler to stretch out page count. There were many times when reading this book when I wondered why she was telling me a particular story. Even odder it included some 'behind the scenes' content of her blog. To me this just felt unnecessary for something billed as a book about healthy living. It seemed like the kind of content that might be interesting to a hardcore fan, but has little appeal for anyone else.
I'd be willing to overlook the blandness of the narrative if the tips were good, but I often felt they reflected the fact that Haupert is not credentialed.Read more ›
