This is a special blog where I won’t be talking about anything health related. This blog will focus on the books that I’ve read and review a very special book.
Re-Create & Celebrate-by Cindy Georgakas
So, I got an opportunity to read this special book by a dear friend and fellow blogging community member Cindy Georgakas.
This is Ma’am’s first book, and it got published very recently.
I am calling her Ma’am because my culture doesn’t allow me to take the name of elders directly. Many people nowadays take the name of elders, but I don’t like that. She exceeds me in age, knowledge, and experience (and winning Miss Daly City).
I wanted to read it for multiple reasons. First, I was amazed to know that Ma’am is working on a book. When she first revealed the cover, I was awestruck. It’s straight fire 🔥.
She is a fellow blogger and is always very sweet and cheerful. I wanted to read this book to give my honest review and to appreciate the hard work she has given into this book.
Right now, this book is a hot topic of conversation and I felt ecstatic while reading it.
This is also the first ebook that I’ve read. Usually, I prefer paperback, but I wanted to read the book post-haste, so I choose the e book.
What this book is about?
I think it’s hard to point out only 1 thing about this book. Some people can see it as a self-help book. It could be a book of positivity for others. Many people will acknowledge this book as a guide for discovering themselves. I see it as a book of hope.
While reading this book I felt very hopeful. It was relaxing and was telling things that are believable.
This book also tells CG’s personal story. I think that instantly connects the readers and that gives a feeling of togetherness.
The language of this book is super friendly, reassuring, and peaceful. She hasn’t used any word which was hard to understand. She didn’t explain any concept which was unrealistic. 😃
Amazon categorized this book as a self-help book, but I feel like this was way more than a self-help book. Usually in self-help books, writers will tell you to do this or that.
But, this book is not about doing this or that, this book helps you identify some things like, who you are? What’s your purpose? Are you doing what you are doing because you wanted to or living others’ dreams?
Throughout the book, she also shared about her life, and that me believe that yes she is like us. Because generally in self-help books writers don’t show their vulnerability.
This book is also about involvement, as in every chapter she has asked certain questions. These are personal questions too, which only the person reading the book can answer.
This book can be read and understood by everyone because language is very amiable.
The sun will set again, the moon will rise, the flowers will bloom, and you will get up again, no matter how badly you have been bruisedCindy Georgakas
What else does it include?
As mentioned, there are many questions that Ma’am encourages the readers to answer. These books also tell about finding the true you, the purpose, plan of action, the importance of self-love, positive affirmation, gratitude, how small habits make life beautiful, how life is about keep going, and we need to take care and so much more. It’s hard for me to describe.
Love yourself, trust your choices And everything is possible.Cindy Georgakas
Also, this lovely book includes haiku. That displayed CG’s versatility as a poet as well.
I find self-help books overwhelming, but this book was very satisfying and relaxing. It’s a must-read for everyone. Age doesn’t matter for this gem. She packed her wisdom, and I am sure it will guide everyone.
I just wish it was of more pages because I enjoyed it and never read a book this fast (completed in a few hours). I had a unique time with the book.
I love that she included a pic of her own handwriting.
Where can you find it?
It is available on Amazon as a Kindle edition and paperback. But if you are from the USA, I think you can even find it easily in the bookstore.
The magic of the book is the reader( as said by her)…… But I thank Cindy ma’am for writing this book.
Make sure to follow her to know more about her, she is ultra sweet.
Other books that I’ve read
I am reading a lot of books, and these books are helping me prodigiously with my mental health. I am investing more time in reading and I think this is keeping me away from the phone as well.
These are some books that I’ve read since May 2022. You can see I have read a lot of self-help books, but now I am back to fiction.
I had to get up on the sofa to click a pic. These are just 1/3rd of the books I own.
I am planning to buy Cindy Ma’am’s book in a paperback version for my collection. I want to hold and feel the book.
Are you aware of these magazines? I love them. I started reading them from last October. These are monthly magazines.
“Tell me why” is a magazine for children, but I love the information it packs, I think every kid should read it. And those who are just curious like me, can read it too.
I am also enjoying reading books in Hindi, as knowledge is everywhere. My last blog was based on the article that I read in these magazines.
I have ordered a book, and it will arrive tomorrow (Sunday).
In the comments, feel free to suggest any book, or let me know if you have written a book and I would love to read that.
That’s all for now…… Keep smiling
