Your Best Year Ever (Or Yet!)

 Your Best Year Ever by Kelly Exeter | Review on Tomes and Tequila Blog
This review is going to be short and sweet, because this book is short and sweet. 

While I was writing my post about a few of my favorite Podcasts yesterday (you can read it here), I noticed that one of the ladies who makes the Straight & Curly Podcast, Kelly Exeter, has written a couple of books. I'm not sure if I really got across to y'all just how quickly I fell for this duo...but with a price of (at the time) $3.99 and $7.99 for the Kindle, I felt compelled to purchase both of her books. may also have had to do with the fact that she was nice to me on Twitter. Basically, if you send me a smiley face or a nice comment on social media, I will buy your book. What can I say, I'm a cheap date. 

But back to the review. 

So last night I read the smaller of Exeter's two books, Your Best Year Ever (inexplicably titled Your Best Year Yet on Goodreads). I was able to read it, after working until 8 pm at the library, and then Skyping both my daughter at college and my husband on his "extended vacation to a foreign, sandy country" because it is a short and sweet 90 pages long (or 45 pages according to Goodreads?!?). 

I actually loved this little book. It helped me get to know a bit better one of the women behind a Podcast that I love so much, but more than was filled with those little bits of knowledge that maybe you've heard before, but I always seem to need a good reminding about. 

 Your Best Year Ever by Kelly Exeter | Review by Tomes and Tequila Blog

As a self-help and self-improvement book junkie, there wasn't a ton in here that I haven't read in other places...there usually isn't. But, you can hear things a million times and all it takes is that one person to say it in a different context, or wrapped within a personal story that resonates, and all of a sudden it sticks. I felt like Exeter's delivery of her tips about Time Management, Habit Building, "Wobbly Courage" and more were so down to earth and grounded that they really sat well with me. I highlighted darn near the entire thing...and I was still thinking about it this morning. That doesn't happen all the time. 

Totally worth the $3.99, in my humble opinion...but then as I said...I am a self-help junkie. 

So, I'm giving it 5 Stars...and vowing to work harder on writing my own story of who I am, and who I want to be. 

And that's my attempt at Short and Sweet! LOL Hope you all have a fabulous Hump Day!!
