Eat, Pray, Love

This is the title of a New York Times Bestseller by Elizabeth Gilbert. I have seen this book several time before in my trips to the bookstore, and all the while I thought this was a cookbook with a cute title. hahaha. It was only when I attended a Travel Writing Class that I realized it wasn't a cookbook at all. My teachers and classmates kept on gushing about the book and the author, while I sat there with a fake smile plastered on my face pretending to know what they were talking about. Right after the session, the first thing I did was to rush to the nearest bookstore and bought myself a copy.

Now that I've read some pages, I am now officially a Elizabeth Gilbert gusher too! Incredible writing, incredible woman! For the first time, I am savoring her every word. I am not rushing to read and finish the book. I am enjoying her every sentiment. She is so admirably honest especially about her troubled marriage and unsuccessful relationships. I am not yet finished with the book, but I immediately rushed to the bookstore purchase the Eat, Pray, Love Sequel Committed. I still have it inside its plastic package though. I promised myself I'd finish this book first before proceeding to that. A must read for someone in a relationship, has been in a relationship and those planning to be in a relationship. It is a road to self discovery and recovery for those who've been so in love with love, that they've forgotten all about themselves. I love the book so much. It is so fresh, so wonderfully written, and again... so honest.
