Incredible read. This book hands down moved me in so many ways. I've recommended it to all who will listen.
Keeping it light but hitting all the hard spots - Jen takes us through the importance of self-love and manifesting everything you desire.
With her hilarious experiences and delightful persona injected in every page, it reads more like a memoir than a self-help book. It's something I will happily read again and soon.
Listen, if you are going to treat yourself to a pedicure you have to bring a book to read. My book just happens to be supper appropriate for the occasion. 😜 This book was okay, I didn‘t necessarily agree with EVERY chapter, but there were some nuggets of wisdom tucked in there. It was also a NYTimes best seller so I get to put it in my checklist for #bbrc #growup challenge!
My current reading pile (left) and my to be read pile (right). A mix of pleasure reading, school-prep reading, book club reading, and #BBRC reading. I have to admit, I am not sure if it is summer break (which is nearly over) or being on Litsy but I feel like I have been reading MORE lately.
This has been making the rounds so I figured I'd pick it up to see what the fuss was about. Read as an audiobook, I guess it's alright. For me, there wasn't anything in here that I hadn't heard before in a variety of other books but if you're someone who needs a kick in the pants to remind you that you are awesome and can achieve what you desire without some of the froofiness found in some self-help books, this would be a great place to start.
Can‘t recommend this book enough and happy that the @24in48 readathon helped me to make time to finish it! Jen‘s style of writing is fun and to the point and she just feels like that no-nonsense loving friend that tells it like it is while supporting you, encouraging you and reminding you that you‘re a queen! And now it‘s bedtime for me cuz I have work in about 8 hours 🙃 and I want to read before I go in. #24in48
Found out today that I'll be induced 3 weeks early!! Trying to pysch myself up because HOLY CRAP.
Not the doctor appointment I was expecting but I guess we're gonna meet our little girl sooner than we thought!! 🤰🤱
I just couldn‘t get into it. Maybe this isn‘t the time for me? Maybe because it‘s not any really new information. I just couldn‘t really care about what she has to say. I am returning this one as unfinished
I‘ve heard good things... gonna try this one out
I will forever encourage people to read this, especially if they‘re going through a rough time. This book makes it difficult to be interested in reading any other book, knowing it won‘t be the same. While reading the very last few pages, I had a lightbulb moment-and decided exactly what I want to do with my life. Coincidence? I think not!
I haven't read many self help books and I didn't get any ground breaking info from this one. It was entertaining and I enjoyed it. Sometimes people need reminders of how to be great and ways to remember that they are great. This book does that for you. A quick read. #Loveyourself
Love yourself. You are a badass.
Very insightful and fun motivational book. A lot of inspirational ideas in this and the writing was very relatable and fun!
Started this audiobook to keep me motivated emotionally and mentally while I get my fitness on. 😌😌😌
It was an good audiobook. Nothing you haven't heard from a self-help book before, but I liked the examples she gave; more current. And I loved her less than perfect reading. It doesn't warrant a second listen, but it was still pretty cool.
This book reminds me of a This American Life podcast that centers around InspiroBot. “The software that Peder Jørgensen and Jesper Sundnes created generates slogans that are sometimes funny but often weirdly insightful and – is this a bad word to use? – sort of profound.” There were certainly nuggets that were borderline profound, but did I need to read a book that could have been easily created by a bot? ??
I have very little experience with self-help books. So it‘s probably unfair for me to say that there‘s nothing new here. Topics include: connecting to a higher power, positive affirmations, and the benefits of meditation. I thought it might be interesting, but it wasn‘t for me.
“The moment you decide to forgive and let your negative feelings melt away, you are onthe road to freedom.”
Finding a few gems between the grossly colloquial writing and lazy use of tropes.
I just finished the audiobook. I‘d say it‘s fairly good. It has a feel to it similar to The Secret, but with more of a cheerleader vibe.
New day. New #audibook. Also a good reminder. Have a great day everyone!
This is such an awesome book. It hit the right spot for me. I am not a huge fan of self help books, but I don't classify this as one. I would call it a self realization book. Along f with telling so many good things about how to be compassionate and let things go, she spoke about so many scientific reasons why. I listened to this book. I would totally give it a few re-runs.
“Making money isn‘t only about the money, just as losing weight isn‘t only about losing weight, and finding your soul mate isn‘t only about finding your soul mate. It‘s about who you become and what you believe is possible for yourself.”
Hot DAMN! This book has been rocking my world during my lunch breaks the past couple of weeks. I can‘t wait to read her second one next!
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”- Anaïs Nin
A very readable book (found some typos though!). A lot of the manifesting talk reminded me of The Secret along with the vision board ideas. I also strangely enough got some Eat Pray Love vibes from it (if a little more realistic and less like a story). It was quick, pretty fun, and I‘ll definitely be applying some of this to my life.
Bookclub pick for March. Not something I'd pick out on my own, but should bee fun and quick.
Okay, I read it. There is some good pep talk stuff in here but there is also some frustrating/dangerous advice as well. And a whole lotta privilege. I'm not trying to put down on the author or anyone served by the message but it wasn't something that I could ignore.
I listened to the audiobook read by the author and I loved it so much when I was done I listened to it again. The book is entertaining, enlightening, and motivating. One of my favorite takeaways: What other people think about me is none of my business. (I know it doesn‘t sound right but it‘s actually a liberating concept.)
Pep talk for a new year.
In the introduction she says “she‘s no self help girl” and it shows
The chapters were insufferable with mediocre personal examples
The advice is almost the same on every chapter, honestly Cosmopolitan gives better advice
I don‘t know what I was looking for, but this wasn‘t it
Currently listening to.
I read a great article recently about self-help industry manipulation and how self-help books do not teach us self-love... but since I‘m still trying to change certain things in my life, I‘ll continue to reach for some handholding.
Quick and funny motivational read, but a little too "out there" for my tastes. The author's advice always boils down to "trust in God/the universe" and "visualize the life you want and you'll have it."
This book is definitely one that I turn to at least once a year to invigorate me, as well as drive back into my head the practices that best serve me.
I can get why this topic can be polarizing to people; sometimes people aren‘t ready to hear the message they need. But for those who are searching for an easier, smoother way to make their lives better- try this book. The humor takes a seemingly dry topic and makes it fun. You‘ll laugh AND learn.
This was my first book/audiobook of the year and it was such a great start! I really enjoyed it and it is helping me make my new year‘s resolution! Hope everyone is having a great Sunday!
Such an amazing book, with a real down to earth, matter of fact approach. Couldn‘t put it down.
