Boundaries teach people how to treat you, and they teach you how to respect yourself.

I've had high expectation on this one. All those good reviews spoiled me a little. Not the best way to start a book, right? But Higashino did not disappoint. Far from it. I think I had tears in my eyes when I read the last few pages. Such a touching story, so very well crafted. The whole book is magic, too!

I‘m so glad I finally got around to listening to this book that‘s been sitting on my Kindle for years!!! Cheryl Strayed aka Dear Sugar is such a force of compassion, reason, humor and insight. While some letters were more compelling than others, each one was answered with such genuine care and thoughtfulness & Cheryl is so willing to bare her own scars that I was often moved to tears. #nonfictionnovember Loved it @KarenUK 💗#BirthdayGirl xxx

KarenUK So glad you loved this… I had a feeling you would xx 1w

Cinfhen I ended up liking wild @Amandajoy but I didn‘t realize how special Cheryl is until I read this book - I guess it‘s maturity but what a gift she possesses @KarenUK so much compassion 🧡 6d

I didn‘t really think I would like this when I started listening to it but it was full of great advice! I think everyone needs to read or listen to this book because there were several topics that I could relate to. I loved all of the advice that Sugar gave and it helped knowing it was actual people needing the advice.

Cinfhen This has been on my TBR forever!!! And my friend @karenuk keeps telling me to read it!!! Hopefully next week in honor of her bday 😁 2w

I started this on Tuesday when the book was announced and leisurely read it between other books I was inhaling. This one is by turns sweet, sad, hysterical but at its core true. This is a compilation of several letters written to Sugar an advise columnist who is actually Cheryl Strayed…Wild‘s Cheryl. Such a good read.

MartinaLove Is it a memoir, self-help or ? 3w
KristiAhlers @MartinaLove it‘s a collection of the most popular letters and advice that she‘s given over the years. Timely stuff for both men and women and LGBTQ communities. Really enlightening and sad and hysterically funny advice. She touches on just about anything. 3w

Enjoyed this but not sure if it‘s advice so much as vignettes some readers can benefit from. CW for discussions of bullying and suicide. I was caught off guard by the second topic in particular. While I found those parts hard to listen to, I would definitely read more from him.

Unfortunately I had to continue my DNFing streak on my recent non-fiction reads, and this one wasn‘t spared. I tried to get into this one, but I found it hard to keep my attention and found it simply “okay”.

All I can say is “wooooooow.” I am not a gay man, but I can soundly say, even in light of that, this book is so relatable to the human condition and beautifully written. BRB currently telling everyone I know to read this.

A lovely sweet reflection on life and how to embrace every day.

“Life is made up of moments, small pieces of glittering mica in a long stretch of gray cement. It would be wonderful if they came to us and summoned, but particularly in lives as busy as the ones most of us lead now, that won‘t happen. We have to teach ourselves how to make a room for them, to love them, and to live, really live.”
