About Book:


Do you ever suspect that everyone else has life figured out and you don’t have a clue? If so, Rachel Hollis has something to tell you: that’s a lie.

As the founder of the lifestyle website and CEO of her own media company, Rachel Hollis developed an immense online community by sharing tips for better living while fearlessly revealing the messiness of her own life.

With painful honesty and fearless humor, Rachel unpacks and examines the falsehoods that once left her feeling overwhelmed and unworthy, and reveals the specific practical strategies that helped her move past them. In the process, she encourages, entertains, and even kicks a little butt, all to convince you to do whatever it takes to get real and become the joyous, confident woman you were meant to be.

With unflinching faith and rock-hard tenacity, Girl, Wash Your Face shows you how to live with passion and hustle–and how to give yourself grace without giving up.

My Review:

I honestly believe this book can help every woman grow. Personally, it has helped me focus on the one person who is the LAST to get my attention and effort. Myself.  Sure some reviews say she’s a little bragadociaous, and I’d agree, but you’d be missing the point if that’s what you took away from the book.  There were some parts of this book, that I felt didn’t pertain to me, such as the child bearing chapter.

You’ll feel like you ARE her in this book. You are not alone, and while this book may not help you achieve personal goals- it’ll give you a sense of peace.  I think that there’s room for change in everyone, so take the challenge and check out this book.

Have a great New Year with reading!

The Next Person You Meet in Heaven By: Mitch Albom Reviewed by: Rochelle

About the Book:

In this enchanting sequel to the number one bestseller The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Mitch Albom tells the story of Eddie’s heavenly reunion with Annie—the little girl he saved on earth—in an unforgettable novel of how our lives and losses intersect.

Fifteen years ago, in Mitch Albom’s beloved novel, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, the world fell in love with Eddie, a grizzled war veteran- turned-amusement park mechanic who died saving the life of a young girl named Annie. Eddie’s journey to heaven taught him that every life matters. Now, in this magical sequel, Mitch Albom reveals Annie’s story.

The accident that killed Eddie left an indelible mark on Annie. It took her left hand, which needed to be surgically reattached. Injured, scarred, and unable to remember why, Annie’s life is forever changed by a guilt-ravaged mother who whisks her away from the world she knew. Bullied by her peers and haunted by something she cannot recall, Annie struggles to find acceptance as she grows. When, as a young woman, she reconnects with Paulo, her childhood love, she believes she has finally  found happiness.

As the novel opens, Annie is marrying Paulo. But when her wedding night day ends in an unimaginable accident, Annie finds herself on her own heavenly journey—and an inevitable reunion with Eddie, one of the five people who will show her how her life mattered in ways she could not have fathomed.

Poignant and beautiful, filled with unexpected twists, The Next Person You Meet in Heaven reminds us that not only does every life matter, but that every ending is also a beginning—we only need to open our eyes to see it.

My Review:

Everyone wanted a sequel to one of the most beloved books, and Mitch Albom has delivered!

In The Five People You Meet In Heaven, we meet Eddie, a grizzly old war veteran – turned amusement park maintenance man who died saving the life of a young girl called Annie. Now it’s time for Annie’s story in this sequel.   I loved the first one and I loved this one.  I had read the “The Five People You Meet In Heave a long time ago, but Mitch did mention characters of the past book in the new one.  This is an awesome read.  I hope that there will be more from this author, I enjoy reading his books.  I am giving this 5 stars.
