Body Talk: 37 Voices Explore Our Radical Anatomy by Kelly Jensen ARC Book Review BLOG TOUR !


                                                           Welcome to this blog tour !

I have received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. 

This book was really well made, the illustrations are beautiful and add to the stories. I loved the fact that this book was so inclusive and body positive, it was raw, true and heartfelt. I enjoyed some authors writing more than others, but even if I had a hard time getting into some of their stories, it still felt like I was taking a lot, and learning a lot while reading this book. Personally, some stories touched me more deeply than others, and that is okay. It is an important read and I am glad that is now out in the world.

While it is impossible to represent every experience, as each is unique, this book does a wonderful job at not only representing the physical aspects of someone, but also the emotional voyage one has to take when your body is not what is considered as the norm, or desirable by society. This is a collections of experiences, that will take you on a journey of what it means to be physically different, and how to accept and love yourself. 

Each story is told in a unique way, the experience is amplified by the images, music and Q&A's that answer even your deepest questions, that you would only ask anonymously. 

Kelly Jensen, did a wonderful job at editing and compiling all these wonderful story in ways that leave you touched long after you have read this book. 

Overall a good, 

4/5 stars
