Book Review: It Tickled The Whiskers Of My Soul by Rebecca Rose

“It took me a long time to learn that not all pain is pointless.” ~Rebecca Rose (in It Tickled the Whiskers of My Soul)

It Tickled the Whiskers of My Soul by Rebecca RoseHello, Dear Bloggites!  I know, I was supposed to make a post yesterday, but I intentionally delayed it for today because I am bringing you a special book review.  The author, Rebecca Rose, emailed me offering her latest book for free if I was willing to give an honest review of it after I was finished.  Of course, I do my best to never turn down a request for a review, but this one was extra special because I “met” Rebecca via email when she published her first book, I’ll Be Fine, and requested a review.

I loved that story so much, that I talk about it to this day!  So, of course, I jumped at the opportunity to read her newest release, It Tickled the Whiskers of My Soul.  This is the author’s third book but second published under her name.  This book is a story of what the author has learned over time about life, belief, and self.  The book is formatted into a separate “love letter” for each topic.

This book was written in a loving, intimate style that made you feel as if you were sitting with the author while she explained what she has learned from life.  The pictures are a joy and will bring a smile to your face even if you think you are the grumpiest person alive.  Each letter has a theme in it and the author goes into detail about what journey she took to realized that specific theme i.e. true self, fear, laws of attraction, intention, etc.

I loved that even though this book is on spirituality, it is not preachy or skewed to one view or another, so it is written for all to read.  I enjoyed reading how the author found her way through situations and time.  So many people do not view “bad” or “hard” times as a learning experience and I think this book would help people realize that even though the situation may be less than optimal, it is always better in the end.

I give It Tickled The Whiskers Of My Soul by Rebecca Rose 5 out of 5 Bookmarks!  Great read for people looking for ways to deal with life. 🙂

P.S.  THANK YOU, Rebecca, for the Honor of reviewing your book! 🙂

Book Review: It’ll Be Fine, A True Story by Rebecca Rose

Hello, Dear Bloggites. 🙂  Two reviews in one day…I am on a roll.  This book review was at the request of the Author, Rebecca Rose, via an email from Amazon.com.  As you all know, I love to read and I love to support new, up-and-coming authors.  I gladly accepted this request and it took me a bit longer than planned before I could read this book.  Life, that ol’ bugger, demanded my focus and I am power reading all the books I have on my list now.

itll-be-fine-a-true-story-by-rebecca-roseThis review is on the non-fiction book, It’ll Be Fine, A True Story.  This book is similar to an autobiography/memoir, but is so much more.  This book was about an AMAZING Love Story of two hearts, recognizing their counter-point, yearning to unite as one.  Not only is this a wonderful love story, it is a wonderful story of a woman working on reaching the next level of her.

The story is about a girl, trudging through life, living the materialistic world of “being the best” and “making the most” at her job yet failing at finding the balance of life and work.  Throughout the book, the reader is taken on the journey that the author herself lived.  Unlike most autobiographies/memoirs, this book read like a fictional love story that has all the elements of a wonderful book: love, challenges, disappointments, loss, and hope.

It is a factual story about finding inner peace and the struggle that happens to some before inner peace is found.  The people in the novel are relatable for any reader and the story itself gives the reader hope and encouragement for their life and the situations they are facing.  The format of the story was a timeline format so you do not have the bouncing back and forth of times like so many books are written today.  The author did not sugar-coat anything about herself or the other people involved in the story.  She literally has held her arms out, hands open, saying, “This is me, all my ugly and beauty, here for you to witness.  Be gentle.”

Every writer puts something of themselves in every story they share with the world; this makes them very vulnerable.  Writing about a real life event in her life, Rebecca Rose, willingly exposed more of herself than that of a fiction writer.  The author is a very brave person to write about something so raw and life changing and I applaud her for it.  Thank you, Rebecca, for sharing your life with me and the rest of the world. 🙂

If you want to read a true, life inspiring story, visit Rebecca at her website and learn more about the author and order your copy of It’ll Be Fine today. 🙂

I give It’ll Be Fine, A True Story by Rebecca Rose 5 out of 5 Bookmarks.  Get ready to have your life changed for the better, Dear Bloggites, once you start reading.
