“Shake off the day. Sweet dreams.:” Gmorning, Gnight!

29 Jul

Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of Hamilton, has now written the inspirational book “Gmorning, Gnight: Little Pep Talks for Me & You.” The book discusses the small talks we can have with ourselves in the morning when we wake up and at night before we go to bed. These little motivational talks remind everyone that they matter in the world. It is a wonderful delight to read. This book is a reminder for everyone to always stay positive throughout the day or the night. Miranda gives us his wonderful little talks that inspire people to be a little kinder to others around them, including one’s self. I highly recommend reading this book. I gave it five out of five stars.

Calling all fantasy book fans… If you enjoy reading magical realism and dark fantasy, then you will most definitely enjoy reading this book. The Ocean at the End of the Lane is about a man who returns to his home in England to go to a funeral. The narrator talks about how his childhood friend Lettie who would take him to view the “ocean” down by the end of the lane. You follow along with the narrator, as he remembers his childhood memories.  This a good book to read for all Neil Gaiman fans. I enjoyed reading this book because it seemed mysterious. Why is the ocean at the end of the lane? You will have to read this book to find out. I’d give The Ocean at the End of the Lane four out of five stars!
