  1. I also related to Sam! I’m not a ballet dance and never have been but with her body image issues, also not in the “i need to lose wait’ but just the “I’m ugly compared to other girls/women”. It’s been a major struggle for me. Reading about Sam and that annoying inner voice that we have, just made Sam so real to me. I do agree with the romance. It could have been done without and like you, I was sad to know she wasn’t going into ballet exactly. But it’s also very realistic because sometimes we don’t get our HEA you know? Still, this was an amazing story. I wish more people could read it.

  2. Ooh, I’m glad you really enjoyed How It Feels To Fly! Especially with how realistic it is – I’m going to have to give this book a try! Especially since it deals so well with anxiety and mental illness- thank you for sharing!

  3. This was such a fabulous review! 😀 I never heard of the book, but I am really interested to pick it up now. I’m glad to hear that the book actually had a realistic portrayal of ballet. The whole having to fall in love in order to recover does irk me a bit. I just started noticing it, but hopefully it won’t gain in popularity! By the way, your picture is so pretty! It really seems to fit with the book. 😀

  4. I’m glad you enjoyed this one, I was thinking about giving it a go, but I wasn’t sure. I practiced ballet for ten years so I’m always interested to read books about that, but I hadn’t found many that grabbed my attention. Moreover, I’m looking for more books that deals with mental illness lately. I’ll definitely add it to my TBR, great review! 🙂
