I had been wanting this book for SO long – every time I’d walk into a book store I’d be looking for the sprinkles on the cover, but every time I had no luck. I finally got this book for my Birthday last year from my Mum & Dad – they had bought it online and had it shipped! I was so excited to finally get stuck into it.
Though, as this book isn’t my typical story-type read, it took me a fair while to get through. I’d read small amounts at a time – maybe a chapter or so, and then go back to reading a normal novel.
This weeks book is…
Ice Cream for Breakfast by Laura Jane Williams
“You can own your own home and want to build a blanket fort on a bad day. Hell! On a good day, too.
Give yourself permission to seek praise, ask for help, and have something soft snuggled against your face because you’re sad.
You can pay your bills on time and still exclaim out loud when something is really f*cking cool, run a business and wear cat-covered thermals under your suit.
You can take time to play, just because.
Full of spirit and un-self-conscious enthusiasm, Ice Cream for Breakfast: Child-Like Solutions to Bullsh*t Adult Problems is the permission slip to all too-grown-up-for-their-own-good-but-secretly-scared-of-adulting adults need to locate their inner-child nestled deep within, so that we might all relax enough to laugh harder, wonder more, and marvel at magic on the daily.”
This is definitely a book that everyone needs to read. It is a feel-good book that helps to teach you to be less serious and have more fun – to be child-like, not childish. This is a fantastic, fun book that anyone can learn from.
It is a brilliantly written book and easy to read – the chapters are fairly short and sweet so it is easy to read small amounts at a time if desired. It is quite an informal and laid back book that includes a lot of laughs. It is a great ‘pick-me-up’ book if you’re feeling down and are feeling a bit bored and unsatisfied with life.
This book reminds us not to always take life so seriously, and to have a bit of fun along the way, and do what you need to do to feel good. This is a great self-help book if you’re after one that isn’t too serious.
The genre of this one is nonfiction, autobiography and self-help.
