Hellllllo readers, hope you’re well and in some need of inspiration possibly? I received this book as part of a bloggers happy mail exchange and it’s the first I’ve *read* out of the number I received. I do love quote books but I don’t have that many of the? This one is really lovely though and I though I would bring you a review today to prove it!

As the book suggests there are 365 quotes that are inspirational and are included to promote happiness, success and a little motivation. We all have those day where life is a little rubbish and we need a pick me up and these are perfect for that. I actually tend to pick this up in the morning – read the ‘days’ quote with my cup of tea and then continue with my day.
The quotes are a real mixture, some are emotional, a little sweet and some are more political/feminist view. It’s a really good mix and that is definitely good when you’re buying something like this – I’ve bought books similar in the past that end up being quite samey but this avoids that.
In terms of the set up each of the quotes has a number – they’re not in any particular number but it does allow you to have a quote for each day (if you remember or decide to do it that way.) There is also a real mixture of quotes – being a blogger who loves to share quotes, both on their own and as images, I’m always searching for new ones to share and often find myself scrolling through list after list; ’50 of the greatest sentences in literature,’ type posts and yet they all use the same one’s. Here there was a real variety both in length of the quotes and the people who said them.
At the end of the book all of the quotes are linked to a little description as to who the author was and what they’re famous for, any things they’ve done and a link to where you can find more information/website/books that they have published etc. It’s a really sweet touch because some of the quotes I really had no idea who the people behind them were so being able to read more and discover more was a real bonus.
The only main problem if I’m honest was it would have been nice to have some sections to the book so that the quote were collated together in a more structured way. I know the idea is a quote for each day and for that you want a different agenda each day but there was very little cohesion between them. I might be saying thing because I’m a blogger but being able to look for a quote to share with others, I would have liked it a little more structured.
Overall this is a lovely little book full of really inspiring quotes – for someone who would have liked to have made it easier to navigate the book; 365 quotes is a lot to go through if you’re looking for something specific, that might be me using the book in the wrong way! Overall this is a really lovely quote book with a very varied number that brought me a lot of happiness reading through it!
