Reviewed in Canada on 10 December 2020
Words of Women has been one of my favourite instagram accounts ever since I first discovered it through a friend of mine (if you don’t already follow this account - DO IT!). The quotes are so wonderful and inspirational. As soon as “The Book of Moods” was released on pre-order I quickly placed my order. And I have not been disappointed! Lauren has a wonderful way with words and has done an incredible job inviting you into her personal journey with her inner most thoughts, moods, and emotions. If you are someone who loves self development I would highly recommend. Lauren is relatable and informative - can’t wait to see what she does next!

This book was the warm, motivational, "I was there too" hug I needed to keep moving forward during a time when I felt stuck, when I had the moods. Of course they keep coming , but now I don't feel lonely anymore. I admire Lauren for all the hard work she put into this book, for following her dreams and motivating us to do that too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful insight on how to better understand your own emotions & moods
Reviewed in the United States on 10 December 2020
The Book of Moods provides an incredibly accurate and relatable look at something so many of us deal with, our moods. And what are moods you ask? Lauren Martin explains it so perfectly on her Words of Women Instagram post that I had to share it here...

"When I talk about #moods I don’t just mean generic emotions. I don’t mean angry or sad or stressed. I mean those feelings we have that we can’t explain. The suffocating feeling at the end of the day when you don’t know what you want or need but you need something to stop whatever is going on inside. I mean the restlessness you feel even though you don’t have anywhere to go. I mean the horrible feeling of looking in the mirror and feeling ugly even though yesterday you thought you looked great. I mean the feeling that something is wrong when everything is right and good and as it should be. These are moods. These feelings that come up and take hold and we don’t know why or what to do about them."

Everyone has these patterns of self-doubt, worries, and emotional triggers, but they can also feel so isolating because they really can come out of nowhere. Backed with research, personal stories, and self-reflection -Martin provides insight on how to better understand your own emotions, and stop them from becoming moods that can stop you in your tracks.

No matter how grateful we are for all the good things we have in our lives, everyday life is also made up of so many of the in-between moments of struggle and self-doubt. Instead of looking at these moments as a way to self-sabotage, we can use them as a powerful vessel to help us reflect, forge ahead, and ultimately transform ourselves and our paths forward.

What I loved most about this book is Martin's honesty. Lauren Martin is most definitely in a different stage of life than me, but even if many of our daily struggles are different, we have something we common, we experience these kinds of emotions. It doesn't matter how old you are or how many truly difficult situations you have endured, even when you regularly reflect on how fortunate you are in so many ways, there are going to be moments you just feel down.

Her quotes and anecdotes and advice normalize how you can be rocking along with work, an important project, etc, and then one small comment can make you question everything. We all have inner struggles and recognizing that these are a thing, can help us acknowledge them and then continue to move forward.

While I read this book on my kindle, as soon as I finished I pre-ordered a physical copy because it is the perfect book to highlight up the wazoo because there is just so much insight here. While we will never be able to control life or the people around us (wishful thinking right?) we do have the power to choose how we react. Emotions are a useful tool when we hold them, reflect on them, and then ultimately let them propel us ahead.

Thank you to Grand Central Publishing for an advanced copy of this book in change for my honest review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. You can read this and other book reviews at genthebookworm.com
