The Little Book of Hygge book coverReviewed by Richard Wisniewski

Happiness. That word brings forth millions upon millions of thoughts within seconds. When you ask people what the meaning of life may be to them, many say happiness. If you ask them for their personal goals, they say happiness. Everyone, to some degree, is pointing towards happiness. With that being said, every year, numerous reports deliver research on the happiest countries in the world. Each and every year, the Danes end up taking the cake. (If you read this book, you will get the pun).

The Little Book of Hygge is quite the fascinating book as it offers great insight into the cultural belief system of the Danish people.

the gratitude diaries book coverReviewed by Richard Wisniewski

I came across The Gratitude Diaries by Janice Kaplan one day as I was doing personal research for my book on the topic. Upon reading the introduction to the New York Times bestselling book, I was captivated, intrigued and sold. Now, I do not say this quite often at all. I firmly believe that every single human being walking on planet Earth should read this book. It is not only life-transformative, it’s life-enlightening.

The concept of The Gratitude Diaries was an idea that came to Kaplan on New Year’s Eve. With the hustle and bustle of society, especially in New York City, Kaplan made it her personal resolution to dedicate 365 days to gratitude and appreciation. Rather than finding fault in things the way so many people do, Kaplan’s intention was to see the silver lining and the bright side of everything.

letters for lucia book coverReviewed by Lauren Cannavino

It is often said that the true test of strength is how we react in situations of strife and even tragedy. Letters for Lucia is the work of one such critical and heartbreaking test for David Brown Jr. Placed in a terrible situation that would have caused so many to head in the opposite direction, in a way almost rightfully so, David instead shifts his focus to opening his heart, mind and life to love and light. The book is a story of forgiveness, of lessons and growth and offers proof that even in times of terrible hardship, it is possible to not only go on, but also to thrive.

David Brown Jr. was young, successful, ready to have fun and looking for love. Coming from a close, warm family, David wanted to
