Feeling burned out? So done? Like you’ve got zero left to give? This guided journal will help shift your focus from giving up to gratitude and refuel your soul, one prompt at a time. Yeah, yeah, we know it sounds like another line, but gratitude really can improve your overall attitude and have profound effects on your life. Real-life, actual scientific studies have found that people who regularly practice gratitude and write about it have better relationships and are healthier and happier than people who don’t.
Use this journal to dig deep to find your f*cks, or focus on the ones right in front of your face. Sometimes you’ll want to fill pages with paragraphs, while other times a simple list will do. Skip around and work on the prompts that speak to you in the moment.
Thoughtful quotes from superwise and bad*ss people will inspire you, while quick tips, tricks, and suggestions for maximizing all that latent gratitude will help you make the most of even the sh*ttiest day. Even when life ships you crates of lemons, you can still make one super strong vodka lemonade and find that there are a whole lot of reasons to give a sh*t. Now let’s find those f*cks, one by one.

What a cute little book! This is a hip version of a gratitude journal and the prompts, colors, and activities are a lot of fun. Tons of naughty language in this so be prepared but this would make a great gift for a older teen, graduate or young adult.
Trendy. Not your basic journal. Fun. There are prompts such as a time you "clapped back" at someone on social media, how did it make you feel? Journal your favorite meme. Write about the banter you had with a stranger in your neighborhood. Really timely. Very fun. Would make a great "time capsule" idea. I imagine if George Orwell had found this journal (filled up) he would be very busy looking up phrases. And of course, if the title bothers you, this book is probably not for you.
This is not your grandmother’s diary. With an expletive on every page, F*cks to Give takes journaling to a whole new level. Many people who try to pick up the habit of journaling may quickly start feeling uninspired when faced with blank page after blank page, and will discontinue the habit. Or some who have been at journaling for a while may be looking for ways to shake things up. F*cks to Give will make you look forward to journaling and think about your day in a whole new light. With prompts that cover everything from your favorite movies or binge-worthy shows to reminiscing about your cringe-inducing awkward teenage years, there is never a dull moment in this guided journal. Even if my f*ck to give is not having those childhood bangs anymore, this journal does deliver on its promise to life your mood just a smidge. Millennial pink and fruity, the cover is cheery enough to spark joy as you pull it out of your bedside drawer (or proudly display on your desk). The best part is you can literally open it to any page and start writing, or flip through until you find a prompt that speaks to you that day.
First of all, thank you Netgalley and Girl Friday Productions for this FANTASTIC self-help journal. I love this journal! I probably have an addiction to self-help journals but this one just one of my new favorites. Each section is filled with realist points and the reader must respond in a reflective manner. I definitely enjoyed going through the prompts and thinking about what truly makes me happy. The best prompt was where we are to think about a place that makes us happy. Typically, a journal would just require you to write a little tidbit about it but 'F*cks to Give' takes it one step further by requiring us to describe the place and how it makes us feel. This journal is truly a gem and I can't wait to fill out the whole thing in its entirety! I think I'll be sad when I've competed the journal but I can always use a blank spiral notebook to respond to the prompts each year. Maybe the answers will change drastically depending on my perspective!
Great book, easy to follow! Loved it! Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Everyone has days when nothing goes right. It rains on your great hair day, turning it into a bad hair day. Your laptop keeps showing the updating circle of death that never stops. It is times like these that challenge your ability to give a f*ck. F*cks to Give is a hilarious guided journal that gives you 201 reasons to give a f*ck again. This would be a super cute gift for yourself or for any twenty-something lady in your life who doesn’t mind the colorful language. Thank you to Girl Friday Productions, Remington8 Books, and NetGalley for the electronic ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Right now, I need a lot of self-help because I’ve been sliding down the tubes physically, emotionally, and psychologically. But I can’t handle the majority of the magical thinking, positive attitude, hyper optimistic stuff that is out there. My style is more along the lines of the Knock Knock Affirmators, which combines humorous and practical advice with journaling exercises. So when I read the publisher’s blurb for this book on NetGalley and Goodreads, I knew I had to have it. And I was so excited to be approved for this book that I interrupted the 350+ page book I had in progress (which was just starting to get good) to start on it. The two-page introduction lays out the simple premise of the book: sometimes we’re so ground down by life that we can’t find anything to care about; therefore, this book is designed to help us remember that there truly are things out there that are worth our care, concern, and gratitude. Except the introduction explains its premise with much more humor (and profanity) than I just did. The journaling exercises include ones that are retrospective (think of an occasion when...), introspective (reflect on your feelings/attitudes/actions...) and prospective (imagine what you could do...). For example, one exercise has you look into your pet’s eyes and then journal three things you love about them plus one thing you can do to make their life better. Other short and light exercises have you simply write down five internet sites that expose glimmers of hope in the world, ten simple pleasures that you can enjoy right now, or your three favorite books. But some of the exercises are quite heavy: happy memories and life lessons from younger years, things you love about yourself, times of epic failure, and the like. Interspersed among the exercises are brightly colored full page optimistic quotes from the likes of Barack Obama, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sylvia Plath, and a whole bunch of names that I’m too in between to recognize. These quotes typically enlighten the exercise right before it. But they make for good breaks in the sometimes intense journaling. Occasionally there will also be a page with information about achieving wellness: how dressing well helps you to think well, fifteen minute cleaning tasks, ideas for motivation to get stuff done, and so forth. Judging by the exercises, quotes, and general colorful layout, I’d say that the target audience for this book is women between twenty and forty. There’s a lot of profanity and slang in the book, but not so much for that demographic to be appalled. In fact, it adds to the humor factor. There’s no presumption of children (hence the pet gazing exercise) or of a long term partner. There is presumption of a having grown up in a somewhat traditional family, but those exercises can be stretched to suit any family unit. There is also a presumption of having a strong social structure (questions like who is your sister from another mister and your brother from another mother). But overall, I’d say anyone with an open mind and a willingness to be grateful could benefit from working through this book. If you’re hard of heart, this book isn’t going to crack your cynicism because of the temptation to give snarky cynical answers to the light hearted exercises. With some minor adaption, this book could be successfully used in talk therapy sessions. Even the “listing” exercises offer discussion prompts that could be managed into gateways to broader issues and possible resolutions. My biggest problem with this book is that I can’t figure out where or how to buy a paper copy. You really need a paper copy to write in, doodle in, carry around, and dog ear. This is so perfect for so many people in my life - especially given the current circumstances - that I’d love to buy a dozen copies and send them across the globe with notes of hope and affection.
F*cks to Give by Remington8 Books is a gratitude journal with lots of sass and plenty of attitude. Essentially a workbook, readers are prompted to record their thoughts on everything from their latest random act of kindness, to a time when they "clapped back" at online trolls. While I wouldn't normally be drawn to the process of journaling, the current state of the world has placed us all in a position where we are evaluating our priorities and, perhaps for the first time in a long time, we have the leisure to reflect on the people and things in our everyday lives for which we are truly grateful. I believe that this book will be beneficial to many who are now taking the time to reassess exactly what is worth giving a sh*t about. Many thanks to NetGalley and Girl Friday Productions for the opportunity to read this ARC.
I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review. Yes, yes, I feel down to my last fuck. With this stay at home and everything is cancelled my mental health is now so down in the dumps I wonder if I will get back again with still many weeks of isolation and no plans in the future due to uncertainty how long this will take. *sighs* So yes, I could use this book and I had to press that read now button. Give me this book! My fucks are given! It doesn't entirely work as an ebook though. This is a book with quotes and with assignments. Those 201 reasons to give a shit? Those are reasons YOU as the reader have to fill in. I hadn't expected that, or well, I kind of did but I had thought there would be more to it then filling in blanks. Since I cannot fill in blanks in an ebooks, I just did it all in my mind, at least those I could do, some I just had no clue what to fill in or it was just not something I do, and some are just not possible with today's situation. But a lot of them I filled in! And I have to say that while it may not have the satisfying feel you may get when you truly fill it in... I did feel better after reading this book and doing the assignments. I saw a bit more light in my life. Saw that there were things that I should hold on to in these days that my mind just seems to keep forgetting. Thank you book! Thank you author. I loved the freshness and colours in this book, it really fits with the positivity that this book is trying to give. I loved reading the quotes and I was nodding along with several of them as I agreed. All in all, this is one book that I really liked and that was definitely a help in these days. I would recommend it to everyone.
This book was a fun, light-hearted way to make you as an individual realize that you should be more grateful and give a crap about you life and your surroundings. It's filled with several quotes to inspire and also journal entries to really have you invest time in thinking about how you could be more mindful and grateful. I enjoyed this book and I would definitely read it again.
This is a spruced up gratitude journal that I really enjoy. It has wonderful writing prompts, beautiful prints, and inspirational quotes.
There are so many self help book out there, like thousands. This book is not like the other. Other books will tell you that you need to do this or that. They give you a list of things. This book is different in the way it makes you look inside yourself. This book is not one that you can read through in one sitting. It is one that makes you think about the different times in your life bad, good, and ordinary. It takes those times and helps you to look at them through a different lens. Anyone can see the bad that happens, but how many can see the “silver lining”? That’s one of the things that are in this book. Once you have a bad time in life we usually want to forget it completely. This book forces you to look back at it, but maybe through the lens of wisdom since time has passed. It’s amazing what a difference time makes. It is very eye opening when you remember and write things down that you had almost completely forgotten. This book is one that once you finish it will be read over and over again. It will be a reminder that you made it through the tough times and were stronger than you thought. That you have so much around you to be grateful for, and helps you look at events in the future through a different lens because you have done the internal searching through this book. It changes your perspective.
This is such a fun book. I've never really took the time to write about stuff like this and I'm glad this book gave me the push to do it. It made me think a lot about me, my life and how I want to live it and where perfect to think about other things than the quarantine and the pandemic. It was helpful, fun and playful.
Such a great little journal with non-common prompts s to complete at your own pace. I read all the prompts and I can’t wait to start writing down my answers. I will be buying the physical version as it is nos as easy with the digital format unless the file can be converted to a notebook in one of the iPad programs. Thanks for providing me with an advanced copy.
I love it! It has the perfect amount of sass and attitude. I like how it reads fresh and young, it includes a lot of good ideas and prompts me to think about life, I definitely want to buy it and write everything down! It is colorful and i would definitely gift this book to some of the teenagers of my family. Thanks for sharing this book!
F*cks to Give is the sassy version of a gratitude journal. It is a fun, engaging and light-hearted way to think about the blessings in your life and to be more grateful. The book is filled with beautiful, colorful illustrations, thoughtful quotes and interesting tasks that make you think. This book is perfect during this difficult time and helps you see the silver lining in things. The best part is, that you can flip through the book and start at any page and fill out what speaks to you that day. This book would also make a great gift (for someone who does not mind colorful language).
This is a fun and naughty spin on a gratitude journal. I could see myself gifting this to the "new" adults in my life or friends especially during this time in our life. It is difficult daily trying to think of what I am grateful for with the dark cloud of pandemic overhead. I loved some of the activities and thought it was well put together with daily prompts that are simple enough to incorporate into your daily routine for showing gratitude. It printed perfectly to add to my planner daily in the digital format. I could see this accompanying my planner in the future. Thank you NetGalley and Remington Books for the eARC in exchange for honest feedback.
This is a useful book with helpful ideas and positive messages. However due to be on lockdown at the moment I will have to wait until this is over to carry out some of the ideas.
Journalling is one thing that can really help during stressful times, like the current pandemic climate. This is the perfect journal for the occasionally vulgar person who just needs to destress.
I always wanted to have a habitual journaling practice, but oftentimes I feel at a loss for what I can write about. This book offers prompts that are helpful in not only getting a journaling habit going, but also helps with daily gratitude!
This journal was very fun to explore, filled with many interesting prompts and questions, that guide the reader towards internal reflection. It's also filled with beautiful illustrations, inspirational quotes, and fun graphics that really make it stand out.
It's only fair to say that I love this book to pieces and that I can't wait to hold it's physical form in my hands. This book is your personal graditude teacher in the form of your half-drunk best friends in plush-slippers. I freaking love it. Over the last years I tried graditude exercises a lot and they really do help me but way too often I stop after some time because it just slips away. This book is full of amazing questions and tasks, quotes and colours and pictures that just pull you in and make you smile. This book is for you if you want to enjoy your own life again more and more each day. It asked you about your favourite songs, about your fluffy or not so fluffy pets and about every good thing that ever happened to you or that you could do. Maybe even today. It's not all passive writing, it asks you to stand up and do something too. And it isn't all zen about it. It talks to you like your slightly over enthusiastic best friend, who after all, really gets you and makes you smile when you need it the most. When you're done you have a whole book of your personal f*cks to give. And I think we can all use a book like that.
This is absolutely the perfect book for quarantine life! It's basically a journal with prompts that help remind you of 201 of the 'reasons to give a sh*t.' The book offers suggestions on ways to come up with tons of reasons the world is great (everything from times when strangers have offered acts of kindness to your favorite songs to dance to). It's well-organized so that you can complete the prompts without feeling too overwhelmed (it actually feels pretty easy to come up with 201 happy things this way). There are also some really inspiring quotes and fun graphics that make it a light read. It feels like it's aimed a little bit towards YA readers, but in reality, this would be good for anyone who needs a reminder that it's the small joys in life that make our time worth living.
This work/self-help book on to why to give a shit was funny and handy. I give too many shits, so a bit of guidance is always welcome. The design of the pages were colourful and fun. You have more than enough space to write things down. It is fun to get and do yourself, or buy it for a friend as amusing gift.
Travel Notes I took a trip to a different place. Not like a place I have ever been before. It was beautiful, but dark at the same time. The scenery made my think and the people I met were very introspective, while keeping their crude humor in check. It was an interesting mix of personalities and posed many ideas that I had not thought of before. I met people who asked me questions about myself in ways that I’d never considered. They were strange, but helpful. I would go back if given the chance. Highlight of Trip: I listened to wise spirits as they whispered inappropriate nothings into my ears. First Impressions Alright. This book is amazing. It’s technically a journal, but whatever. This journal is amazing. It has crude humor and blunt realities sprinkled into the prompts, quotes from people that actually make you think, and questions that will cause you to introspect. I had a fun time writing the travel notes because a journal doesn’t really offer a place to go, but it can! The Prompts Like I said, they make you think. These prompts took me to a different place, which is what they are supposed to do. This journal was not designed for the pandemic currently sweeping the nation, but it couldn’t have had better timing. We are all struggling with this illness one way or another and this journal is a perfect way to get your mind off of the shit and into a better place. Should You Read It? I think anyone would enjoy this, as long as you have a sense of humor and you’re not afraid of curse words. I don’t journal. I’ve tried a hundred times, but it never sticks. I stuck with this one for a while because it was written by my kind of foul-mouthed people. It’s real. They writers didn’t bullshit any part of this or ask you to answer meaningless questions. Everything is thought out and well put together. Comment Below! Do you journal? If so, are you a prompt-driven journalist or a free-spirited one? If not, why? Happy Travels My Friends! Sarah
If you love journal prompted books this one is for you!! The humor and blunt realities are put thoughtfully into the prompts, with quotes from people that actually make you think, and questions that will cause you to introspect. I had a fun time writing in my journal. Do you journal? Are you a prompt-driven journalist or a free-spirited one? Happy Journaling! [ I will be posting my review next Tuesday on my social media handles ] Thank you to Netgalley and Remington8 Books for this opportunity!
I absolutely love this journal! It gives me LIFE. Helped me find f*cks to give! It’s so cute, has amazing prompts, and the quotes are everything. I want to use this journal every damn day! So much inspiration to live a life well-lived. I can’t wait to share this with all my friends.
"With this guided journal, you'll replenish your store of f*cks to give (...) You can page through it when life gives you f*cking cratefuls of lemons." -Ooh, that's where the cover came from! This guided gratitude journal is a godsend for people skeptical of journals for a jillion of reasons: - It maintains a relaxed tone; in other words, there's no pretending you're William Shakespeare. - It's certainly young; we're talking journaling about memes. - Every page is different, good for people like me who get bored easily. - It's PRETTY with a variety of colors and fonts. - Has an instagrammable layout with entire pages of inspirational quotes. - The prompts are more creative than other journals I've seen. I really do believe it gives you results in the form of gratitude and overall satisfaction, even though it pretends to be a silly journal. However, a word of caution is needed: perhaps it's obvious from the cover page, but there are A LOT of curse words inside. Perhaps too many, not necessary to achieve the desired result, but it's still an awesome present for yourself or a friend. *Thank you to the Publisher for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Thank you NetGalley and publishers for an ARC. This is a really fun and engaging journal. It does contain some language as to be expected by the title. I enjoyed the approach to looking at being zen and mindfulness with power and enthusiasm. It east fun to interact with the colors and quotes. I would recommend this in the summer or anytime you need stone fun color and wisdom!
I LOVED this journal and plan to purchase it. It is so relevant now with a larger focus on mental health than ever before. While it is meant to be a funny take on mental health, I found the prompts incredibly relatable and encouraging of positive mental health. When I first stared reading the prompts, I was expecting it to be cranky and bitchy, and it ended being neither. The prompts provide positive takeaways to bad situations and help process a healthy response. I loved the colors and pictures that were used. The only thing I didn't like and found a bit distracting was the font used on the cover and throughout the book. I think it cheapens the book a bit and it would be more aesthetically pleasing with the straighter, thin font used throughout the book. Thank you for the advanced preview of the journal. :)
This book is everything! A gratitude journal like no other, it helps you "dig deep to find your f*cks." I loved the colorful graphics, the inspiring quotes, and the irreverent prompts that push you to give realistic answers instead of the ones you think you should be writing. I found myself reflecting on everything from shows I love to binge to the most awkward moments of my teen years, and I know this book will become a treasured keepsake and time capsule and not just another self-help experiment. "F*cks To Give" is perfect for quarantine - if ever there was a time you needed to be reminded of reasons to "give a sh*t," it's now. I bought two for friends for Mother's Day because we all need to find the small joys in life at this moment - even if it's just about the time you clapped back at that social media troll. Thank you to NetGalley and Girl Friday Productions for an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
This is such a cute journal. It is way ore then your average blank white page notebook though. I love self-help journals and this one is by far a stand out. It has prompts for each section and really guides you though different thought processes. It helps you to notice the little things like smells and why you like certain music. It forces you to be reflective. I can assume that it would be useful if someone is going though a stressful time to have something to look back on. It doesn't require you to write a lot which I personally like. I can't wait to fill this up with ideas and thoughts. I am so excited. Thank you Netgalley and Girl Friday Productions for this PERFECT journal.
I am 100% full of sass 100% of the time. This book just helps me get it all out without hurting anyone's feelings. The prompts are great, the colors are fun. This is an amazing book for anyone who isn't afraid of actually thinking outside of the box.
A much needed workbook of all the things we need for ourselves during this time! I received this ARC thanks to Netgalley and it was right up my alley with bright, fun colors and prompts I needed right now. I would highly recommend for anyone hoping to lighten the mood. Trendy and fun, this was unlike anything I’d ever read before!
Thia journal does what it says right on the cover. Makes you give a crap about what your writing along with a reason to write. I'm always lost but know I need to journal to clear my mind. The quotes are inspiring and interesting. This is a journal especially for adults that just cant start. Thank you for accepting me to try your journal I am very grateful for the opportunity. #netgalley #f*ckstogive
This is Soo cute journal. I love it. It best and different kinds of a journal. Thank you NetGalley for providing this cute petty thing.
I absolutely loved this Journal, it was fun quirky and memorable The prompts give you a great starting point to jot down you thoughts and the memes are great fun too. I highly recommend
I love journals! I’ve been journalling since I learned how to write. And journal prompts are super fun. I was excited to see this book filled with tons of prompts and beautiful graphics and colours. There are also lots of quotes which are uplifting and inspiring. Each prompt and page has plenty of space to write out your feelings and answers. My favourite prompt is list your top 3 favourite books and why? Thank you to Netgalley, Girl Friday Productions and Remington8 Books for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions are my own. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Available Now!
I loved the promptS this journal gives you! I have been wanting to start journaling for the longest time and I think this was the best way to start for me. It has lovely and empowering quotes throughout the journal that I liked very much.
This is a very easy exercise journal. The premise is that you can list your way to giving a f*ck. Once you've filled it all out you'll have 201 ways to refill your emotional bucket; 201 ways to remember that life is good after all; and 201 tips to perk you up when life is giving you lemons. It is great fun. A good gift for a woman in her twenties.
This book is an adorable interactive journal that shows you, yes, you do actually have some f*cks to give. I think this book would make a great gift to anyone (particularly right now during the pandemic or during times of great change when it may be hard for someone to tap into their gratitudes). I would also recommend it for anyone interested in journalling or needing a jumping off point for beginning that particular activity. Exercises and practices are coupled with quotes that help you tap into something deeper.
This is a fantastic little book. I thought at first it was going to be a list of things but it's a journal with lots of advice and activities. It made me laugh, cry and go, 'oh yeah that makes sense'. This was a digital copy so of course I couldn't write in it, but I made lots of notes from it. This would be a great gift in these times as a lot of people have changed their lifestyles with lockdown. Lots of inspiring quotes to which I really liked. Thanks to NetGalley for the free article
First of all, thank you Netgalley for this WONDERFUL self-help journal. I LOVE it! I think it might very well be my new favorite. Each section of it has realist points and asks the reader to respond in a reflective manner. I especially liked the inspirational quotes the journal is full of. I really liked going through all the prompts and thinking about them. I mean, truly thinking about what makes me happy. That’s not something I usually do on a day-to-day basis and it really helped me a lot. The prompt I liked best was where we are to think about our pet and what we can do to make them happy. Usually a journal would just ask some shallow questions, but F*cks to Give takes the whole thing a step further and requires us to really put some thought in it. In my opinion this journal is a gem and I’m so excited to fill out the whole thing! I think it would be really interesting to answer to the prompts every year and see if and how the answers change.
What a fun book! You definitely don't want to give it to someone that has a problem with LANGUAGE. It's bad, fun on every page. Myself, I thought it was a cute little book! Thank you so much, Remington8 Books, and Netgalley, for giving me the chance to read and review this cute little book!
Seems a bit weird to review a journal but here I am. F*cks to Give: 201 Reasons to Give a Sh*t consists of writing prompts and inspiring quotes by Barack Obama, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Ella Fitzgerald, Sylvia Plath, Charles Dickens and many more. It's a fun premise (swearing in book titles has been a thing for a couple of years now), prompts are pretty sarcastic (this could be a turn off for most), illustrations are nice and pastel. Overall it's a well put together journal. That being said - writing prompts are really basic and the main appeal of this journal is the sarcastic tone. It will look nice on your shelf tho.
This is a great journal. It is very thought provoking, which is surprising considering the tile. I was drawn to this journal by the title BUT I was pleasantly surprised by the topics. I like that this is a journal that you can bounce around in and you do not have to stick to a linear timeline. Great job on this journal. I will be purchasing it soon!
Thank you to Netgalley for a copy of this journal. This was a self-help unlike most I have seen. Rather than just a book, it was a journal to help you remember those things that make you happy and what you should appreciate. It is definitely something you can do yearly as a reminder. It was particularly helpful during this quarantine time. My only dislike is at some points it seemed repetitive, however, I completed this journal in a matter of a few days. If you stretch it, the answers could change and wouldn't seem to repeat so much.
100% this needs to be a written copy. But for the purpose of reviewing, I thought this was a great little journal! Kind of like a naughty version of a gratitude journal. I loved the use of bright colors and patterns. I would gladly use this little journal myself or gift it to friends and family! Great!
Not what I was expecting. This is meant to make you ponder your life and and think of happier times. I love lists but it makes me question my self when the lists are not the same, 3 pages for movies 4 slots for songs and 2 for food.
Thank you to Netgalley and Remington8 Books for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I love to journal so this book was right up my alley! And with everything happening in our crazy messed up world at the moment, this book was definitely perfect timing! F*cks to give: 201 Reason to give a Sh*t is a light-hearted and quirky journal and meant for a bit of fun. Full of thoughtful quotes and tasks to get your brain thinking and make you feel good. If you are looking for a little bit of positivity in these testing times then grab yourself a copy.
Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Don't hesitate.. just get it. It's cute, funny, and so very appropriate to the pandemic / stressful times we are in. If you're sensitive to cursing, this isn't for you.
If I am depressed or if I feel like my life is horrible, this book might make me recognize that my life isn't as terrible as it is. This is a journal that is supposed to help you be grateful for what you have and that people do care about you. This has great prompts to write about and not get bored.
F*cks to give: 201 Reason to give a Sh*t is a light-hearted and quirky journal and meant for a bit of fun. Full of thoughtful quotes and tasks to get your brain thinking and make you feel good.
Who doesn’t need a good gratitude journal? It seems even more important to be able to sit back and recount the things you’re truly grateful for with the world as it is. The fact that this journal is sassy as all hell is just a super fun perk to the whole thing! This is definitely something I’ll be purchasing for myself (and probably friends, too)! This wouldn’t so much be recommended to those who disprove of curse words, but I honestly think it adds to the appeal in this case. Thank you to Remington8, L.T. Jenness, and NetGalley for the eARC copy of this journal in return for an honest review!
What made this book wonderful was how it makes you feel less alone when you're struggling. I was looking for something to give me hope and this book was funny and wonderful in how easy it was to read!
This book is designed to be an interaction between the owner and their own personal reasons for gratitude— as they answer the prompts, they build a record of little joys and honest moments. It is becoming more widely-understood that the practice of gratitude can improve your general mental health. At your bleakest— taking a few minutes to specifically find the positive and list it out, or re-reading reminders of the good that has happened, can help your brain to re-focus and allow for the possibility for that good to happen again. The prompts given are varied, and I actually recognise several from both therapy worksheets and meditation apps I’ve encountered. I appreciated the quotes spread throughout the pages as well. I could see this being useful to someone who doesn’t know there to begin a journaling or thankfulness practice, or someone who finds it easier to get their thoughts out once prompted on where to begin, Thank you to NetGalley for an eARC of this title in exchange for an honest review.
