We live in a very visual world where high-quality pictures are a must if you want to become successful on your blog. Pinterest is my number one traffic source by far, and the main reason I’ve been able to grow my blog is through visually pleasing pictures.

Book Review: Sad Perfect by Stephanie Elliot

Book Review: Sad Perfect by Stephanie Elliot

CONTENT WARNING: This post mentions eating disorders, self-harm, and suicide.

This is a spoiler-free review.

For my second book review on my blog, I wanted to read Sad Perfect by Stephanie Elliot. I read so many mixed reviews about, but I wanted to give it a shot. I wanted to form my own opinion based on the content and the portrayal of mental illness.

Sad Perfect is a moving story about Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder. It’s informative, yet relatable. It’s heartbreaking, yet hopeful.

I do want to make a trigger warning before continuing with my review. I imagine this book can be incredibly triggering for those struggling with an eating disorder, especially ARFID. There were very descriptive passages of self-harm that triggered me greatly. I had to ground myself before reading on.

So to start my review, I say read this book at your own discretion. If you want to gain insight on less known mental illnesses, please read on.
