Throwback to my first Books on the Subway! Does your city do a free book exchange via your public transportation system?
Lily‘s writing voice is refreshing and doesn‘t talk down to the reader. Although I‘m not the target audience, she does a fine job of presenting her story. Incredibly fast read. Took me all of 2 hours or so. She‘s passionate about what she does and you can tell. Can‘t wait to see what she does next professionally.
"There is a greater happiness to be attained: the happiness of enjoying myself to the fullest during the one life I have and accepting myself for who I am." This book is deeply moving and empowering! Lily Collins is so open and honest and raw, she speaks from her heart with a fierceness and empowerment. This is her, and she's not ashamed. You shouldn't be ashamed of yourself either. A must read for any young woman learning to love herself.
Crappy lighting because I'm tired 😴 but I'm reading this book for work, it's funny cause it was on my TBR. But Lily came to my attention in City of Bones, and even though I love Shadowhunters, the show, I always picture Lily as Clary. She just stuck. She's so quirky I've learnt so far reading this. I can tell this book will stick. #lilycollins #book #nonfiction #bookandcandle #bookaddict #bookblogger #bookgeek #bookaddiction #shadowhunter
With all my heart, i would recommend this book.
I received it today and only read half of it because it was way too well written and way to beautiful that i wanted to keep also something for tomorrow.
Lily Collins opened herself up about everything she had been through during those years.
You should read it ASAP!
❝Our heart is our ultimate source of power. We can't forget that we need it in order to love ourselves so that we can love others.❞
— Lily Collins, Unfiltered 💓
If any of you are in need of an uplifting, empowering book, you MUST read Unfiltered. Collins discusses everything from self-love to relationship problems, to her struggles with her eating disorder. It gives so much perspective on life, that we're not alone. 🙌🏻
I really loved this book. It was just straightforward and she was very open. She never seemed like she was trying too hard and yet she had a profoundness throughout the book. If you have ever suffered from body image issues, doubted your own personality, or had to deal with a substance-abusive relationship... this book may shed some light that you are not alone. Even if you haven't experienced those, it is still worth reading.
And this quote is another one I really loved.
"Struggling is normal. It's human. But I didn't let my new struggles define me. I used them for deep self-reflection and emotional contemplation."
It is important not to wallow in failure or struggle, but to take it in and learn from it. It is always going to be a part of the human experience and a part of who we are. Embrace it, learn to love it, and use it as a tool to help navigate your future.
Listened to #Unfiltered by Lilly Collins and absolutely loved it! While I highly recommend listening to it on Audible, I'm sure it's just as great reading the physical copy for yourself.

Guys, I love her🖤 She's an amazing inspiration for me, I'm really proud of her and what she writes about. I also went through eating disorder and to this day I'm still trying to eat as I should and believe me that It's truly hard to get out from this disease...

In an attempted to read some lighter reading material I chose to read Lily Collins' new book. She was a journalist from age 16 so she certainly has a way with words. Although I wouldn't considered a lot of the book "light" by any means. In fact, it was hard to read about abuse and addiction from her point of view. All in all I enjoy reading the female perspective on life. Hers was quite good.
♡I love her♡
