Praise for The Goddess Effect

“The Goddess Effect is a fall-on-the-floor funny, fresh, and modern take on one woman’s journey to hell and back―and by ‘hell and back,’ I mean a three-month stay in Los Angeles.”―Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians and Sex and Vanity

“Fresh, bitingly modern, and laugh-out-loud funny, The Goddess Effect is more than a page-turner―it’s also razor-sharp commentary on the cult of wellness.” ―Andrea Bartz, bestselling author of We Were Never Here

“Sheila Yasmin Marikar’s writing is prismatic…She had me laughing in one breath, cringing in the next, only to turn on a dime and knock the wind out of me with her honesty.” ―Megan Angelo, author of Followers



“Snappy, voyeuristic, and upsettingly relevant." ―Amanda Montell, author of Cultish: The Language of Fanaticism and Wordslut: A Feminist Guide to Taking Back the English Language


“Marikar successfully provides larger-than-life caricatures of wellness industry denizens and LA residents at large as well as an outrageous mystery waiting to be exposed.” ―Kirkus Reviews
