Summary from

Karen Linamen dishes up a satisfying blend of moxie and mocha, sharing stories from dozens of women who reveal savvy strategies for embracing a sweeter life—even while traveling rocky roads. If you’re hungry for more joy, reasons to laugh again, ideas to help you heal, and reliable hope leading to a sweeter future, this journey will leave you satisfied.

Funny, transparent, and uplifting, The Chocolate Diaries is like taking a road trip with good friends who are wise about life. And while you’re at it, indulge (just a little) in the quirky recipes for concocting chocolate delights out of whatever ingredients you can round up in your kitch. The road may still be bumpy, but you’ll be having too much fun to care.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this book- was it a self help book?  a humor book?  a devotional?  Technically, the book is set up like a devotional.  Each chapter is very short and has discussion questions at the end.  However, as a devotional it is very light.  It is not a bible study condensed into a daily journal.  The stories in this book are light, funny, and very enjoyable for the reader.
Each chapter seems to follow this pattern:  funny story, how to relate it to your life, and how to relate it to the Bible, and then a few questions to think about.  It is what it is advertised to be- chocolate for the soul.  I love the fact that it feels light and breezy- I feel happy and comforted after I read it.

This would be great for anyone who has been feeling a little "down in the dumps" or someone who needs a quick emotional pick me up.
