The Art of Losing Yourself – Book Review

art of losing

Being a fan of Katie Ganshert’s first three books, it was no surprise that I was thrilled to be selected to receive an advance copy of her latest book, The Art of Losing Yourself.

I devoured the book in just a few short days. I was drawn into this elaborate story world Katie created within the confines of the first and last pages for her characters. Carmen is dealing with her own issues when her 17 year old sister, Gracie, comes to lives with her and her husband, Ben. Over the course of the novel, the reader has a backstage pass to the ups and downs of their livesI absolutely love how Katie created real characters. They have flaws, doubts and insecurities and everything isn’t wrapped up in a beautiful bow at the end. As a reader, I find this refreshing because I can relate to the struggles they face and that life isn’t easy, nor does it turn out how we envision it. I also loved the growth and change in these characters over the course of the story. You will be touched and moved by this compelling story.

Katie hit another one out of the park with The Art of Losing Yourself. I would recommend that you preorder your copy today because they are going to fly off the shelves. Head over to Katie’s website for a sneak peek.

  1. Enjoyed your review! I too thought the characters’ facing real issues made the book easy to relate to. “Following” you! (I love the WordPress Reader!)

  2. I couldn’t agree more with your review. The characters were so real I didn’t want the book to end! Part of me wanted it tied up in a bow, so I could know how things turned out. However, I think that would take away from the realness of it all.
