30 Things I Love About Myself by Radhika Sanghani Review is here. This book is the sort of book that doesn’t come along very often. My shelves are overflowing with love stories of all tropes and representations. But this is the first one in my collection that celebrates the most elusive yet vital love of all—self-love.

Synopsis:

In the third book from Sanghani, we meet Nina Mistry on the day she is arrested. It also happens to be her thirteenth birthday. Her life is falling to pieces, and to top it off, there’s no wine or carbs in jail. When all seems lost, Nina happens across a self-help book that preaches self-love as the key to fixing her problems. She begins her quest to find thirty things she loves about herself with nothing to lose.

30 Things I Love About Myself by Radhika Sanghani Review rating:

For the most part, I absolutely adored this book. The main character, Nina, was utterly relatable. So many of the ‘screw-ups’ in her life are laugh-out-loud funny yet gut-wrenchingly familiar. By the end of the first few chapters, I felt personally invested in Nina’s journey.

Sanghani complements Nina’s narrative with a beautiful tapestry of supporting characters. Nina’s mother and brother, while endearing as a pair, each serve as a barometer for Nina’s journey in very different ways. They bring a cultural context and provide gravitas to an otherwise light-hearted book.

Mental health is a powerful theme in this book, and some challenging aspects are discussed in depth. I’ll be completely honest and say at some points, I had to stop reading. Credit to Sanghani that she handled these topics incredibly sensitively, but they are still tough to read. The triggering themes did bring my rating down half a star. But overall, this was a highly enjoyable and surprisingly powerful read. It was an honor to share Nina’s journey.

Sadly, the triggering themes did bring my rating down half a star, but this is purely a personal reaction. Although certain scenes were important for the flow of the story, a lighter touch (or even implied situations) would still have delivered a clear storyline without the intensity. A bit too much attention and focus was given to a very triggering set of circumstances.

Overall, however, this was a highly enjoyable and surprisingly powerful read. It was an honor to share Nina’s journey.
