A review by bookishmillennial
Savvy Sheldon Feels Good as Hell by Taj McCoy

emotional funny reflective fast-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Plot
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
This felt a lot more like fiction with a coming-of-age story than a capital R romance, which is totally fine! I could see this as a movie on Hallmark! 

I think Savvy’s journey felt authentic because it was messy and imperfect. I appreciated her own growth in finding her confidence and her voice especially. 

I am very anti-diet culture and all about body neutrality, so while I understand society’s desire for everyone to “eat healthier,” I also would love to stop framing food as “good” or “bad”🥺 

I loved Savvy’s relationships with all the side characters (besides her ex Jason) and felt the care between all of them 🤎

cw: fatphobia, toxic relationship, emotional abuse, side character is an ex-cop, sexism, misogyny
