Book Review – finding fabYOUlous

Congratulations to author Melissa Venable on the release of her book ‘finding fabYOUlous’, A Self-Help with Sass Guide to Finding, Celebrating, and Capitalizing on the FabYOUlousness That Makes You, YOU. Scroll on to read my review to find out why I loved this book so much!

Finding FabYOUlous by Melissa Venable

My Review:

Ditch the drab and find your fab.

Finding FabYOUlous is by far one of the best self-help non-fiction books I’ve read in a long time and I highly recommend it to everyone. If you’re looking for a book that will help guide you along your path in life, this book is for you. If you’re looking for great tips that are relevant to your life, this book is for you. If you’re looking for a bit of positive inspiration, this book is for you. Even if you don’t think you need help, yup you guessed it, this book is for you.

Throughout reading this novel I found myself making tons of notes on things to try, small changes to make, and some really fun suggestions that I can’t wait to take! There may be a few suggestions that aren’t for you but there’s likely an overwhelming number of things you’ll take away from this book. Not only is the book itself fantastic but when you purchase a copy you’ll gain access to the supplemental website that’s filled with even more fantastic resources to help guide you to a fabYOUlous life!

I promise no matter where you’re at in life you’ll find this book beneficial and informative. Go get yourself a printed paperback (or kindle copy if you must), because trust me, you’ll want this one on your bookshelf!

My Rating: 5/5 Stars

I received a complimentary review copy via the author. All reviews 100% reflect my honest opinion.
