*I was provided an e-arc from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

“Broken (In the Best Possible Way)” by: Jenny Lawson

I should admit this right now, I adore the previous works by Jenny Lawson and even snagged a half raccoon face promo paddle thing from the 2016 BookCon in Chicago for Furiously Happy. I was sort of set up to already love this. Jenny writes in such an open, candid way, that you as the reader can’t help but root for her. She writes like how I and one of […]

“Think Like a Monk” by: Jay Shetty

This book was so unbelievably insightful, humble, and satisfying! From the topics covered and the research included to the personal anecdotes included along with the use of story and quotations this book is such a valuable resource for anyone seeking how to develop the monk mindset. The pace was wonderful, however I read this in many small chunks over many days as I wanted to take in what I was […]

“Legacy: Women Poets of the Harlem Renaissance” by: Nikki Grimes

The creativity here was incredible! Nikki Grimes highlighted female poets during the Harlem Renaissance and created her own poetry using a method called Golden Shovel Poetry. Grimes explains that this form of poetry is to take a prominent inspirational line or lines and then craft your own poetry using those words. I have never read anything like it! The Artwork included is STUNNING. My favorite poem was by Esther Popel […]

“Tea & Treachery (Tea by the Sea Mysteries #1)” by: Vicki Delany

Confession time: I LOVE the writing style of Vicki Delany. She manages to write in such a comforting way and yes I know she writes cozy mysteries, but not ALL cozy mysteries feel like hers do. I find them extremely comforting. I adored her Sherlock Bookshop series and when I saw she had a new series coming out, oh man I did a happy dance when my request to review […]

“Mini Chibi Art Class: A Complete Course in Drawing Cuties and Beasties” by: Yoai

One of the hobbies I want to get into this year is doodling and drawing. I used to doodle all the time when I was younger and it has been years since I picked up the proverbial shading pens. This book looked like a kawaii spark to rekindle that old flame. The introduction was well written and very much encouraged trial and error. Many tools were recommended, however the author […]

“Break Your Glass Slippers” by: Amanda Lovelace

I inhaled this in one sitting. This tends to happen when I read work by Lovelace. I related to so much of what she says. I found different lines we are all familiar with twisted and turned creatively. I found song lyrics expanded to fit the theme. I found myself nodding along at aspects presented concerning my first ever relationship as well as inspiration for my career now. Wow. Incredible. […]

“The Girl from Widow Hills” by: Megan Miranda

This was even more twisty than her previous work which I adored when I reviewed it last year! (See The Last House Guest review here) Her writing and way of crafting a story just keeps getting better and better! The threads that all wound and the questions being raised while getting answers and the speculations…oh man. What a wild ride!!!! I didn’t guess until a page or two before the […]

“You Deserve It” by: Josh Wagner

I have been on a nonfiction, better ones-self kick lately when it comes to reading. When I was able to aquire the e-arc from Netgalley on this one I was very excited to jump straight in! There were some very good takeaways here. Especially worth reading for anyone struggling with a sense of not deserving good things in their lives…and who doesn’t have that thought? Sometimes we all struggle to […]
