Book Review and GIVEAWAY(US/Canada): "Sweet Tooth" by Tim Anderson
I really liked Tim's sense of humor throughout the book. Even when he has become comfortable with himself, but doesn't necessarily have potential love interests knocking down his door - you feel bad for him and then he says something a little profound, maybe, but mostly sarcastic and funny. He's being really honest about what he was going through, what he was thinking, and how it shaped him - and he is really funny to boot!
Also, I learned quite a bit about diabetes and what diabetics go through on a daily basis. I really had no idea at all - other than I once saw a woman have an attack at the beach when her sugar got too low - but that's it. I'm glad to have this new knowledge. Oh, and the music! So many of my old favorites are talked about here that I want to go and listen to again! Such fun!
The bottom line here is that this is a great memoir that I think will appeal mostly to 25-40 year olds who can remember/relate to the numerous pop culture references. This would also be of interest to those who enjoy love stories - though heavy on the trials and tribulations of finding love, not necessarily about being in love.
Now this is exciting - I can giveaway a copy of SWEET TOOTH! Only US or Canadian addresses will be accepted. I'm using this Rafflecopter form for the first time in a very very long time - I hope I didn't screw it up! Good Luck everyone :)
