The Reluctant Blogger by Ryan Rapier

Dr. Schenk, I don’t know if what I’ve written amounts to a breakthrough or not, but I hope you know how difficult this was for me. I also hope this proves how serious I am.

Todd Landry knows he’s in a bad place. That’s why he began seeing a therapist to begin with. And that alone took a lot of doing. So when Dr. Schenk threatens to stop their sessions due to Todd’s lack of effort, Todd grasps at the last available straw: a personal blog that will force him to confront his demons.

Ever since the death of his wife, Marci, Todd has not been the same. To make matters worse, he’s being forced to Single Adult activities at church, and everyone close to him seems to think he should be able to just forget Marci and get married again—especially when he meets Emily. But dating again is hard, especially when throw in three kids still at home, an overbearing father, and friends who need help with problems all their own.

    I really liked the way this author tackled some sensitive topics (especially in the LDS community) and thought he made some great points. I appreciated that the main character made mistakes and then tried to correct them. I liked the different relationships portrayed — father/son, friends, father/daughter. My biggest complaint (and a very minor one) is that the chapters didn’t really feel like blog entries to me with all the dialogue and everything — it just read like a first person narrative (which was okay!). Great story!
