Yet another book that is spectacular to have on hand when I need a lift.
Awesomely perfect I kept thinking, This is the exact right time in my life to read this book, but the beauty of it is, I have a feeling that when I re read and re re read and re re re read it, I ll think the same thing I want to buy at least 3 to give as gifts 2017 Popsugar Challenge Book you ve read before and makes you smile okay, I haven t read it before, but let s just look into the future a bit.
This was a quick read, which makes sense since it s half colouring book and have inspirational quotes Very good though I love the illustrations, which are beautifully drawn and have quotes running through them The pages are perforated for easy tearing an colouring Also arranged in such a way that there is a quote on the back of the art, so if the ink bleeds through when you are colouring you won t care Some favourite quotes from the book Sometimes people come into your life just to teach you how [...]
What a brilliant compilation of inspiring quotes, witty stories and the invitation to create by coloring in the beautiful designs scattered throughout this book Jenny keeps it real yet hilarious She has such good words for people at any stage of their life journey whether it s in dealing with mental heath struggles, being creative or just getting through the day Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book Surviving the darkest moments will make you stronger in will, character, empathy, com [...]
I am going to need to remember to pull this book out when the hard days seem to be winning.
This book is now one of my favourite things.
All I can say, Jenny, is NAILED IT Raw, edgy, and stupidly funny, as one expects Also, the pages tear out, so do with that what you will wink wink
This is perfect and wonderful and already my favorite coloring book ever and the only one I am leaving on the shelf by my chair which holds the books that hold me together on bad days.
This is a tough one to rateCompared to Jenny Lawson s other books, it s definitely lacking in humor and substance It s essentially a coloring book with inspirational passages and quips No humorous anecdotes or essays like those that made me love Lawson I read through it in half an hour.Butwhen rated as a coloring book, it s very whimsical and fun So, my rating is for it as a coloring book, not as compared to her other books.That said, I don t know if I can ever color in this The thought makes me [...]
This book is beautiful I don t think I ve ever read anything that has hit so close to home or made me so emotional The words inside are ones I didn t know I needed to hear or read, I suppose , and the illustrations are ones I didn t know I needed to see From now on, whenever I feel depressed or worthless, I know what book I ll be using as my anchor I will look at this book and be reminded that I am still here.
This book is poetry for the broken mind Not traditional poetry which is ick , but beautiful, lyrical words that say what those struggling with mental health issues most need to hear Jenny is that friend we all need, who provides wisdom and hope, while at the same time, making us pee our pants with laughter We all need that laugh I always thought I d like to be a dandelion those vivid yellow flowers that bloom in the cracks of sidewalks or abandoned lots Anything that thrives in such strange, bro [...]
I ve had this since it came out and only read it today In addition to Jenny s amazing doodle drawings, she graces us with her infamous sense of humor and deep thoughts The words are poetic and inspirational, and serve as reminders that we re not alone Most of the drawings are too intricate for me to color, though if you look up youarehere, you can see what others have done and feel inadequate But as Jenny says, there s no right or wrong way to use this book it s up to you.
When Jenny Lawson is anxious, one of the things she does is to draw Elaborate doodles, beautiful illustrations, often with captions that she posts online At her signings, fans show up with printouts of these drawings for Jenny to autograph And inevitably they ask her when will she publish a whole book of them That moment has arrived.You Are Here is something only Jenny could create A combination of inspiration, therapy, coloring, humor, and advice, this book is filled with Jenny s amazingly intr [...]
This book is so much fun This is a colouring book but not only, there are also jokes and nice thoughts to remember and small stories and altogether it s pretty and lovely and positive The pictures are so pretty and I m definitely having a lot of fun colouring them in or reading the words around them If you find normal colouring books a bit boring, this might be something for you
my mom got me this book as a graduation present I m reading it for the first time the day before I fly back home to college feels like hope.
I just love Jenny Lawson.
I mean, I will love everything Jenny Lawson does for all of eternity I bought this book literally the moment it was available, but only found time to read and appreciate it while being home sick for the last three days Thank God for Jenny Lawson Thank God for coloring Thank God for all of the necessary misfits like me.
Love everything about this.
I am one of her people.
4 I started crying on page four Not in a bad way The drawing and words on those pages really hit me and I needed to read them I feel like I ll read this book a million times and get something different from a different page each time I won t say I didn t miss some of the crazy antics and stories of Jenny s other books But this book is so wonderful in its own right It shines in a way that the other books can t There are already pages I want to rip out and wallpaper my house with And pages I want [...]
I kind of feel like she s me It s nice to know I m not alone in this crazy head of mine.
So many things at once My mind is blown.
