LifeofLiteratureGender: female4 Stars Out Of 5MovingJuly 18, 2022LifeofLiteratureGender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Moving and transformative, this novel take the reader on a journey as Mel faces real demons and struggles in a fictional narrative. I like that the author does not shy away from tough subjects and I really liked that she wrote from her own experience of an eating disorder. I really appreciated the growth that Mel experiences in this novel and I appreciated that faith played a role in Mel's evolution. This story is eye opening and instills a message of hope. Even if you do not personally struggle with an eating disorder, I think the mental anguish that Mel faces is something that can be extrapolated to other circumstances. This book is heavier than other fiction I've enjoyed, but I think the message is worth the read. Recommended!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell Publishing. Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
Cheri SBattle Creek, MIAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5WOWJuly 12, 2022Cheri SBattle Creek, MIAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5All That Fills Us was one of those books I had to keep putting down and picking back up immediately. It was written so true to life that sometimes it was a little overwhelming, especially for someone who could relate to the eating disorder symptoms. It was amazingly written, the characters (all of them) were so true to life. I love how Mel thought she had such a great childhood yet as she kept healing, she realized there were things in her childhood that needed sorted through, forgiven and then let go. I love, love, love how throughout her journey she came across people in her path that literally at times, saved her life, and how their meeting and her staying with them for a while changed blessed them both. I also loved how she wrote postcards to her ex, and then they were able to reconcile, both from a healthier place. This was an amazing book, one whos details have stayed with me. It was a tough subject and very true to life, yet offered so much hope throughout.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
Ains0074 Stars Out Of 5This was an interesting bookJuly 11, 2022Ains007Quality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3All That Fills Us gives a very compassionate view of eating disorders and the mental instability that goes along with it. I grew to care for the main character as the book progressed. She has a hilarious way of looking at life. Her sense of humor seems to be all that kept her sane as her body started to break down. It was interesting to think of a person in her dilapidated state of physical being undertaking such a long trek, but this is a work of fiction so it's possible. There were not a lot of Christian aspects to this book, it mainly seemed focused on how you feel vs the power of God. Over all this was an enjoyable read. I'm thankful to have received this book in exchange for an honest review.
Coast and Anchor3 Stars Out Of 5A fictional journey of self discovery and healingJune 29, 2022Coast and AnchorQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3All That Fills Us by Autumn Lytle focuses on a women's "healing" journey from an eating disorder and past trauma. While this type of topic is much needed in Christian fiction, I'm not sure this one hit the mark for me. I struggled to engage with the main character and get into the story. That was most likely due to parts being unrealistic - such as a 2,000 mile trek across the country on foot after being released from the hospital. While the book does make a few mentions to God, it is more about the "healing" the main character feels from the people she meets along the trek. Lytle writes from her own experience with an eating disorder, which lends to the storyline. Overall, I think some will be able to connect to this book better than others. It should be noted that this could be a triggering book for some and it is by no means a manual or guide on how to treat or manage eating disorders.
Author SK4 Stars Out Of 5I was so movedJune 29, 2022Author SKQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I have a history of eating disorders and still find myself making strange rules for myself or eating and undereating in strange patterns.
I suspected this book would be cathartic but I underestimated just how cathartic it would be for me. I was so moved by Mel's story and gained so much.
Also, her journey moves along the northern, western portion of the country which is my favorite portion of the country. I've never been to Michigan but I have loved Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, and Washington. I could picture so much of the setting and it all made my heart so happy!
