Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You
Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You | Lin-Manuel Miranda
From the creator and star of Hamilton, with beautiful illustrations by Jonny Sun, comes a book of affirmations to inspire readers at the beginning and end of each day.Good morning. Do NOT get stuck in the comments section of life today. Make, do, create the things. Let others tussle it out. Vamos! Before he inspired the world with Hamilton and was catapulted to international fame, Lin-Manuel Miranda was inspiring his Twitter followers with words of encouragement at the beginning and end of each day. He wrote these original sayings, aphorisms, and poetry for himself as much as for others. But as Miranda's audience grew, these messages took on a life on their own. Now, at the request of countless fans, Miranda has gathered the best of his daily greetings into a beautiful collection illustrated by acclaimed artist (and fellow Twitter favorite) Jonny Sun. Full of comfort and motivation, Gmorning, Gnight! is a touchstone for anyone looking for a lift.

4/5 🌟 I really wasn't sure what to expect when I picked this one up but it was definitely an uplifting #audiobook full of morning and nightly words of #positivity. And Lin-Manuel's narration was superb! The only reason it doesn't get a 5/5 from me is because it lacks a bit of oomph (it's a feeling). Definitely recommend it. Alexa, play one of these messages when I wake up and go to bed #nonfiction

What a beautiful book! Best of Lin Manuel Miranda's daily morning/night afirmations from Twitter. Over the last few months, I've loved beginning and ending my day with these inspirational thoughts. Definitely a keeper to revisit whenever I need a pep talk.

LapReader I use mine like a diary and write when I wake up and before bed on whatever the theme of the day is. 2w

Among the many things I LOVE about LMM, as well as this book, is his attention to the details of the mundane. I appreciated this book for reminding me how there is so much in our world of which we can be grateful. Including giving love to Satsuki and Mei‘s dad! ¡Vamos!

There is nothing like waking up to what you know is going to be a rough day and having the kind, thoughtful reassurances of Lin-Manuel Miranda that everything will, in fact, be okay. His philosophical prose is enough to bring tears to your eyes some days, and literally make you laugh out loud the next. The underlying key factor here though is this... Be kind. Be kind to yourself. ⬇⬇

vkois88 Be kind to others. Just be kind. Kindness can create happiness for others where there was none, and radiate eminently. Thank you, Lin-Manuel for this reminder! 5🌟 2mo

This one set. Especially this gnight one. Makes me tear up every time because it‘s exactly what I need to hear. Hearing I am loved. Everybody needs to hear it. It really puts into perspective how everyone around you has that tug of love for you. Meaning they‘re always there

Time to catch up on some reviews! I listened to this one recently and loved having Lin-Manuel Miranda's voice in my ear but I almost feel like it would have been better in print because there were a few parts that sounded like illustrations/comic strips being described that kinda disrupted the flow a bit. Read more like a kid's book, but had some simple positive affirmations for everybody. Nothing ground breaking but nice and easy.

Emilymdxn The print edition is really lovely! 2mo

This book has been hanging out in our car the last few weeks to dip into when out and about. Lovely doses of positivity! LMM‘s good nature and kindness towards all of humanity shines through! This will have a permanent spot next to my bed!

Also, the last prompt I needed for summer #booked2019. I read most of the prompts earlier this year. Fills #giftedtome.

Giving myself a hearty dose of Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s pep talks on our drive to have lunch and visit a vineyard with my parents before they come back to our place for the weekend.

We have a strained relationship, and get togethers often end badly (Thanksgiving ended in me being bashed for my decision to work again, and being too negative because of my political beliefs?!), so I can benefit right now from a whole book of pep talks! ☺️

JackOBotts This little book is phenomenal. I hope your day goes well. Keep the LMM by your side. 🤗 At least there will be wine! 🍷🍷🍷 5mo
Amiable Ah, yes. Family. As I say about mine: You can‘t live with them and you can‘t ... well, live with them. I feel your pain. 5mo
4thhouseontheleft @JackOBotts I love this little book! Great advice, it‘s definitely staying by my side this weekend. @Amiable 💞💞 Thank you. Not a lot of people understand; esp since I have parents that keep their narcissism closeted so most outsiders don‘t see it. Your words mean a lot. 5mo

I think this book is very sweet and just right as the thing it‘s intended to be: a book you can pick up at any time, flip to a random page, and find a little pep talk or benediction. It‘s just nice to have a little collection of kindness you can hold in your hands.

@BookishMarginalia You‘re hitting it out of the park! I love everything! With your strong recommendation, I‘m sure I will love Dark Matter. Maya just ran off with the positive thoughts book, (I think she woke up early just as excited to see what was in the boxes today! 😂), we‘re both huge fans of everything Lin-Manuel Miranda does. 🥰 Evicted has been on my tbr for a while! Thank you!

Lin-Manuel Miranda agrees with our #BFC philosophy. When life happens, change your goals. Nothing stays the same, so why should we? Adapt & change.

As you develop your starting goals for Round 2, remember your goals are YOUR goals. #BFC is a challenge, NOT a competition. Your goals are based on your abilities, limitations, & journey. You should challenge yourself, but not compete with me or anyone else.

#BookFitnessChallenge #BFCR2

I made it through about 16 hours of #24B4Monday.

I finished the last 100 pages of The Priory of the Orange Tree.

Also finished Daisy Jones and the Six and GMorning GNight.

I made it over half way in The Anonymous Girl and The Silent Patient.

Since I spent the entire weekend moving I feel like this is pretty stinking good.

ravenlee Wow! A great total anyway, but especially while moving! 8mo
8little_paws Oh moving is awful. I can't believe you read this much while moving! I could barely focus when I moved last summer 7mo
Ashley_Nicoletto @8little_paws I also traveled all five days last week for work. 🤣🤣 I had a few hours on the trip back to read on Friday, but I did mostly audio all day while packing and cleaning and then got a few more hours in after nine pm on the couch. It was a rough week. 7mo

While most revered as the incredibly talented creator of the hit Broadway show Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda also gained popularity with his Twitter account. He posts uplifting messages in the morning and night. This small book is a collection of some of those posts, accompanied by charming illustrations by an artist, Jonny Sun, that he found online. Just the kind of book to have by your bedside!

If you‘re a fan of Lin-Manuel Miranda on Twitter, then you‘ll enjoy seeing all of his upbeat messages in one place. Add in the adorable illustrations done by Jonny Sun, and you‘ll have the perfect pick-me-up for a day where you need encouragement. This book helped get me through some rough days, so I definitely recommend.
