    I love rainbow colors, so this book grabbed me when I saw the title: "Read This for Inspiration" was in different colors on the spine. All the illustrations are just so happy and fabulous. From the very beginning, the author sets the rules on how readers can read this book: all at once or pick it up anytime. I also love how the author weaves in personal stories. Read this book for the inspiration you need.

    English Review Below. كتاب بهدف التشجيع بالكثير من الألوان البراقة والمقاطع القصيرة والجمل "الملهمة". الكتاب من تأليف إحدى كاتبات موقع "بازفيد" المشهور، ولذا يبدو واضحا عليه الرغبة في الإلهام وجذب الانتباه، ولكنه للأسف لا يعلق في الذهن بمجرد الانتهاء من الكتاب. ولقلة الكلام فيه، فلا أجدني أنصح أحد بشرائه، طالما بوسعه قراءته بوسيلة أخرى سواء باستعارته أو بشرائه مخفضا. لا أنكر أن بعض المقاطع كانت مشجعة وقت القراءة، ولكن بعد مرور يوم من قراءته، لا أجدني أتذكر شيئا مما كُتب فيه.

This is a self motivation book with a lot of bright colors and very little texts and some quotes that are meant to inspire. Being written by a former Buzzfeed writer, they are catchy, but most of them aren't that memorable, and it being so bite-sized, I wouldn't recommend buying the book if you could read through a library or on discount. It's nice and uplifting at the moment, but it doesn't leave any long-lasting effects. I thank Netgaley for the digital ARC.

    First book of 2021 completed and it did not disappoint. I want to make an effort in reading more books about positivity and how to better yourself. I hope Ashly writes another book like this. It inspired me to make a little journal of every thing inspirational I’ve come across in books, television, magazines etc. I recommend!

    An email subscription I get recommended this book and it sounded right up my alley. A book of inspirational snippets that Perez has learned and adopted along the way. The book covers an array of topics all presented in bright colors, and beautiful design. I read this one cold and dreary Sunday morning with my coffee and when I finished, this book brought the warmth and sunshine. I highly recommend this one as a graduation gift or as a gift to anyone who is in a period of transition.

    I usually tend to stay away from Self-help books because they are hard to read through without getting bored but this one is beautifully written with art and illustration that make it simple to read. The writing itself is straight to the point and it is easy to understand what Ashly is trying to convey to her readers. I actually really found this inspiring and it is something I will always return to, so I can read through my favorite points and be inspired again.

The book is designed to meet you where you are. Each entry is labeled with tags so you will know what topics are touched by that section. Some of the topics are: body image, adventure, science, motivation, relations, work, money, gratitude, and relaxation. I loved how each section had many short tidbits that worked together to build on the point. The illustrations are great and include great messages! The section about shopping hit home with me. (Ouch! Looks like it is time to take a pause before mindlessly shopping.) I really enjoyed this and would recommend it to anyone looking for no pressure inspiration. I'm so grateful to Ashly Perez, Clarkson Potter/Ten Speed Press, and NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of this ARC ebook in exchange for my honest review.

I liked that the writing was concise and thereby easily digestible and perfect for picking up and reading at any page. The author felt like a friend, guiding gently with their words of wisdom that did not come across as patronising or cliché due to the authors addition of anecdotes from their own life. I think this book would be good in a physical copy to put on a side table or coffee table to pick up and read at one's leisure. Not to mention the great design of the book, being extremely aesthetic. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for some inspiration or comfort in these difficult times. I look forward to buying a copy myself when the book arrives in the UK.

    3/5 stars! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This book has a lot of inspirational messages that everyone can find really helpful in their lives. I loved the colors and illustrations accompanying the messages. The messages are too long for my taste, but that's just a preference of mine and I acknowledge that it might be endearing to other readers. A nice book to remind ourselves of the little things 3/5 stars! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I absolutely loved this book! Ashly is honest and witty, funny I'm blunt. I believe that you always find the book that you need at the moment you need it. I have at least seven people that I want to buy a copy of this book for and I want to sit down and make them read it, read every damn page. This might be my go to book for graduation gifts this year. What a great piece of work! Beautiful, colorful, and full of very very good thoughts. I absolutely loved this book! Ashly is honest and witty, funny I'm blunt.

    I firmly believe that if you can take one little nugget out of a book - it was worth the read. In this case, you get plenty of inspirational nuggets! Serious. Fun. Straight-forward. Eclectic. This book has something for everyone. Sometimes you just need a different perspective to lighten your mood and spur you on to the next big (or little!) thing. Read one idea or many. It just takes a spark!

    Thanks to Clarkson Potter for the DRC!! I enjoyed reading this book. It's very beautiful to the eyes and I also love its message. Honestly, I've read other books looking for inspiration that worked better for me. But at the same time, I also think this one brings important lessons. Thanks to Clarkson Potter for the DRC!!

    This book is packed full of advice and guidance, tips, tricks, and prompts to aid anyone in cultivating greater creativity. I love the notion of being 'planted' instead of overwhelmed. It really put things into a different perspective for me. Highly recommended!

    I want to see Ashly make this into a 365 day by day desk calendar. I like how the book can be read different ways, and the artwork is beautiful.

    Really great stuff at the beginning but became a little tired and repetitive by the end.

    Cute book that would be better suited as a coffee table book vs reading on b/w kindle.

    Sometimes the perfect book comes along at the perfect time. I'd been picking away at this one, reading a page here, a page there, savoring it... but tonight I straight-up binged the whole lot, even revisiting pages I'd already read. And I'm SO glad I did. I've been going through a pretty major life crisis lately. The sort where I can't eat or sleep and feel a gnawing in my gut almost constantly. Aand have been feeling beyond awful.

Ashley Perez's helpful, hopeful words on life and love and struggle and heartbreak and everything in between were exactly what I needed tonight. This book wasn't a miracle cure by any means, but it was a soothing balm for a broken heart. Thank you, Ashley. Thank you.
