Work has been boring lately. It is so boring that I have developed a routine of going to the library to find something to reading at work during my spare time. As I was searching for the perfect not-so-short and not-so-long mystery book to read, I came across this book called "Size 12 Is Not Fat" by Meg Cabot.
I chuckled when I read the back cover of this book. The heroine, Heather, is a Assistant Residence Hall Manager. Some of Heather's residents are being killed on the elevator. Yet, what reeled me into the book was its sub-plot about feeling good about yourself regardless of your size. Oh, you might want to know why I chuckled. I was just tickled since I had also previously worked in a Residence Hall and was also a Assistant Residence Hall Manager. I also can definitely relate to both dealing with a bunch of teenage hormones, rowdy guests, and self-confidence.
After I finally finished reading my book, I was excited to get the second book of the series. It is called "Size 14 Is Not Fat Either" by Meg Cabot. I haven't finished reading it yet, but both the plot and sub-plots are addictive. Having your bones stick out and looking like you are from one of those third-world countries isn't pretty. A women should be healthy and confident. The media should entertain the average size of a woman in their advertisement. Every time I see a Victoria Secrets commercial, I want to through a shoe at the television. The average size is not size 0 or 2. Real women have curves.
Check out this Lane Bryant commercial that have been banned. Yes, I said banned. In comparison to Victoria Secret commercials, I am shocked and disappointed. Also, check out the book to. This isn't a book review blog. However, I felt the need to share.
