Color Me Pretty Review


“I'm living through the ugly.”

I've done it this time. I've really screwed up. I've made a mistake, and I'm afraid that it's going to cost me everything – my family, my career and most importantly, Emmett Sinclair. He saw the beauty inside of me, looked past what I was becoming on the outside, and gave me his trust. Everyone thinks I tried to kill myself; I think I made a mistake. They all say I'm halfway to the grave; I say I've been reborn. Nobody knows what I'm going through, so I'm going to have to fight harder than ever before. The problem is, I no longer know exactly what it is I'm fighting for.


I loved this book more than the first!! It took me little to no time to finish it, I just had to know what the outcome would be for not only Claire but for Claire and her relationships. I believe that she has finally realized that she hit rock bottom and that her behavior was not only destructive to herself but to her family as well. At first only Emmett understands what Claire is going through and all her family wants to do is keep him away, Claire is sent to rehab where she meets an amazing new friend Kylie, they have an immediate connection.

I want you to know if you fall, I’ll be there to catch you” ~ Emmett

There are a lot of unexpected twists throughout this book, Emmett does an amazing job trying to keep Claire going in the right direction, and amazingly enough she wants to do it for not only him but for herself.

“You are so Fucking Beautiful, he tells me, and I have no idea to respond to that. My usual thoughts would center on how untrue that was, how hideous I really was, but today, I just let the compliment hit and settle deep down inside of me.”  ~ Claire

I could not put this book down; I needed to know what was going to happen for these two….. I need more!!!! I think this book covers a topic that is not seen often and C.M. Stunich has done an amazing job capturing the struggles of someone with an eating disorder. This book had me on the edge of my seat….I definitely give it a whole hearted 5 stars!!
 “It’s the most beautiful sight I have ever seen. I have finally colored myself pretty with my own shades, blended my own joy and my own desire into something palpable.” ~Claire

About the Author:

C.M. Stunich was raised under a cover of fog in the area known simply as Eureka, CA. A mysterious place, this strange, arboreal land nursed Caitlin's (yes, that's her name!) desire to write strange fiction novels about wicked monsters, magical trains, and Nemean Lions (Google it!). She currently enjoys drag queens, having too many cats, and tribal bellydance.

Always a fan of the indie scene and 'sticking it to the man,' Ms. Stunich decided to take the road less traveled and forgo the traditional publishing route. You can be assured though that she received several rejections as to ensure her proper place in the world of writers before taking up a friend's offer to start a publishing company. Sarian Royal was born, and Ms. Stunich's books slowly transformed from mere baking chocolate to full blown tortes with hand sculpted fondant flowers.

C.M. is a writer obsessed with delivering the very best and scours her mind on a regular basis to select the most unusual stories for the outside world.

Ms. Stunich can be reached via e-mail or by post and loves to hear from her readers. Ms. Stunich also wrote this biography and has no idea why she decided to refer to herself in the third person.
