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.

Loving my new book light and Anne of Green Gable‘s print! The light folds open into book pages to turn on, but folds shut into a small brown book to turn off. 😍 The perfect nightstand additions!

Wow. This is the BEST BOOK I've ever read in my life! Wow! It's so poetic and full of encouragement; I highly recommend it. Usually, I donate my books after it's read, but I'm going to hold on to this one. This one is, with no doubt, a keeper.

This is a beautiful little book of short messages (“pep talks”) about facing each day. I don‘t know if this would qualify as poetry or a graphic novel or a little bit of both, but what fun this book was! It made me smile and it made me feel good. I really felt like the authors were personally speaking to me and it is just so motivating and a happy, feel good read. Pick up this book because it will make your day better!

I probably have half of this bookmarked. It was a much faster read than I was expecting, but I already want to reread it. I‘m definitely going to get this book in physical copy and the audiobook. It‘s just so good, I need it in every possible medium. I loved LMM before, but I really love him now.

GingerAntics @ItsAnotherJen I think I have half the books bookmarked (it wouldn‘t let me highlight). Clearly I need a physics copy of this lovely book for proper highlighting, dog earring, etc. I‘ll just keep it by my bed for when I need it. 2y

This book is as great as you'd think it'd be. If you like Lin or are already familiar with his Good Morning and Good Night tweets, then that is exactly what to expect with this book. It is a perfect dose of realness and positivity and motivation to help you get through your days.

“Woke up grateful for the air in my lungs, the sleep in my eyes, the ache in my bones, the chance to say hello again“

sarahlandis She is so unique, stubborn at times, but always a character you love and root for. This book is part mystery so I won't include any details.

Every blow that came her way hit me hard, personally. I was nauseous with anticipation, cried with grief or relief. The way Owens wrote actually cultivated very real emotions and reactions from me as I read. I couldn't put this book down. The few days it took me to read- I would sit through work waiting so s

This is the perfect balm for our current situation. It is a compilation of Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s Gmorning & Gnight tweets. I listened to the audiobook so I missed out on the illustrations, but Miranda reads it himself so of course it was delightful. I listened to just a few pep talks at a time so I could enjoy it for as long as possible.

Gmorning! EVERYONE needs to read this short book ASAP!! I have read a few tough books lately and needed something happy. There is NOTHING better than LMM telling you how awesome you are. I really needed this encouraging little book. If you are having a rough time with social distancing or your kids and their “distance learning” is driving you crazy 🙋🏼‍♀️ read this book! It is the best gift you can give yourself right now. You‘re welcome! Gnight!

Book 11 of 2020 #GmorningGnight by Lin-Manual Miranda, illustrations by JonnySun This is a sweet volume of little pep talks, thoughts on life, and reminders that we are all okay. I occasionally share on of the little poems with my students. These are Lin-Manuel‘s morning and evening tweets compiled into a book, and when I read them I feel comforted and calmed. Give it a try! Love this one - highly recommend! 5 ⭐️

This book just made me smile. Keep it next to your bed and read a little pep talk when you wake up and when you go to bed. You won't regret it.

So I think it‘s really important to give myself positive affirmations. This book was super cute and gave me a bunch of ideas of what little pep talks I can give myself every morning.. and then a good “you did great” each night.

Fun NYC trip with my friend Amelia - we went in for the Book Fair for Grownups run by Penguin Random House. Saw John Hodgeman, and Lin-Manuel Miranda was the person ahead of us in line buying books (spot his head)!

Unfortunately it was WAY too crowded and the books were full list price despite being publisher-run and costing admission to get in, so afterward we went to The Strand (her first time!) and got a very satisfying and cheaper book haul.

Zelma Admission and full-price? Not cool at all. 3y
bookandcat @Zelma yeah it was such a bummer :-( the best part of book fairs as a kid is that books were less expensive than in the store so you could get a bunch, also you were giving money back to the school! A publisher sponsored event isn't giving money to a good cause, not even a local bookstore :-( 3y

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.

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!
