Afraid I have to put this down about halfway through. I'm not sure who her target audience is (tween girls maybe???) but the writing is one exclamation point and all-caps word after another. It reads like an overly long blog post talking down to people who want to be creative. I applaud the concept behind this book, but the exercises are quite dumb. Perhaps they really would work only on young people. It's too bad. Day can be entertaining.

I probably would have gotten more out of this if I had been able to do the exercises in the book but since it‘s a library book I couldn‘t. But I did find it funny and the advice useful. If you‘re wanting to be more creative but you‘re unsure, I would give this a read. Going to try to find my own copy eventually so I can actually participate in the exercises. #wintergames #tbrread #SlayBells @MidnightBookGirl @Clwojick @StayCurious

I am convinced that Felicia Day is my spirit person. Literally every word that she writes just speaks to me!
This book so far is fun and inspiring, and keeps me thinking. I love self help books, especially ones you can write in, so I am all for this book! 📚

I'm having fun drawing in a book! I'm not usually into self -help books, but this one is exactly what I need right now. I've been wanting to start doing creative things again, especially writing, but getting started is hard!

I saw Felicia Day this afternoon at NY Comiccon. She discussed her career and her new book. The book is a workbook, in part, you write in it, rip out pages, etc. It seemed from the discussion that some sections of the book are about anxiety.

Book mail! The inside looks awesome and I can't wait to work on it (it's meant to be written in and used like an inspiration journal). Also, I love Felicia Day. She might be my spirit animal. As a side note, Gallery Books needs to NEVER use this cover texture again. It feels like sandpaper.
