    I didn't realize how much I needed this book until I read it.Lin-Manuel Miranda, the genius behind Hamilton and In the Heights , has a pretty prolific following on Twitter. Each day he provides a tweet of encouragement in the morning and one in the evening. Sometimes they're humorous, sometimes they're inspirational, and sometimes they just hit you right where you need them to. Gmorning, Gnight! Little Pep Talks for Me & You is a compilation ...

    I'm holding off on rating this because I listened to it on audio and didn't get to see any of Jonny's drawings, which I expect will be integral to the book. But just for the listening experience of Lin narrating this, his soothing voice, how short it was, how personalized the advice and kind words were in his lovely voice, I adored it. I listened to this in 45 minutes as I was lying in bed and playing Animal Crossing before going to sleep, and it...

    ¡Me gustó mucho!Creo que le faltó "algo" para las 5 estrellas, pero sin duda fue un libro precioso y que me hizo terminarlo con una gran sonrisa. ¡Además el audiolibro dura menos de una hora! Lo escuché todo seguido y me la pasé FELIZ. Obvio ayudó que fuera narrado por el mismo Lin-Manuel Miranda. Amo a ese hombre, soy afortunada de estar viva al mismo tiempo que él.

    "What if — instead of compulsively reaching for your phone — you could reach for a book? A kind of comfort object that could keep you company all day long.Jonny SunI love Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You. Seriously, I truly love this book. It is a charmming book of wonderfully inspiring pep talks. I feel so good starting and ending my day reading Lin-Manuel Miranda inspiring words, & Jonny Sun's drawings make me smile. Rather ...

    Perfection. Lin-Manuel Miranda is maybe the most phenomenal human being on the planet.A personal story about how one of Lin's tweets helped me: The news that Anthony Bourdain had taken his own life came when I was at my own emotional low-point. I was in a job that I had loved and fought for, but was working for a boss who was destroying my soul. Before long, it grew into the single worst depressive episode of my life. I often woke up at 2 in the ...

    This book is a compilation of short pep talks for each morning and evening, with illustrations that really add to the text (like flying garbage trucks, for example). The texts are compiled from Miranda's Twitter greetings, and I think this is a really good choice, hence my five stars.The mornings and evenings mirror each other; you can dip into the book at random, or just go through, gradually or like a book. You might also sometimes feel like pu...

    "Gmorning, love.Your best impulse, that selfless impulse, letit take the wheel.Let it drive you toward the person youdreamed you'd be."7:46 AM - 21 Nov 2017I got my daughter Lin-Manuel Miranda's book of daily affirmation/pep tweets. I guess that is a thing. They are sweet. I stil don't regret spending her future college money on Tickets to Broadway's Hamilton in July, 2016. I thought that would finally quench my daughter's interest in Hamilton, L...

    Reading this book was like receiving a warm hug from a loved one that you haven’t seen in a very long time. Like coming home and feeling instantly safer. Like looking up at the sky and knowing that no matter what happens, you will be okay.

    Read this in less than an hour. Remembered some of them from Twitter, which was fun. Awesome stuff.

    The world needs more books like these! Rooted in honesty- these pep talks are extremely likely to further brighten any day. It’s definitely a book I’ll be grabbing off the shelf when I need a pick me up.

    Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You is an adorable book of affirmations, that is equal parts inspirational and funny plus the gorgeous illustrations are an added treat to the eyes. On the whole, this book is really very simple, just a few words accompanying the good morning and good night greetings, but those handful of words are totally spot on! One could open this up at any page and read it and be delighted/inspired/encouraged by t...

    I don’t have a book of quotationsOr wisdom I pull from the shelf;Most often the greetings I wish youAre the greetings I wish for myself.So if I write “relax,” then I’m nervous,Or if I write, “cheer up,” then I’m blue.I’m writing what I wish somebody would say,Then switching the pronoun to you.And after a few years of greetings,They started to vary in tone;And people said, “Lin, your gmornings and nightsAre the nicest things up i...

    Lin-Manuel Miranda is a national treasure. He’s a precious Cinnamon (Linnamon) Roll who needs to be protected always and is one of the only reasons I use Twitter. Basically...I love him. He regularly does good morning and good night tweets. Little snippets of love and encouragement. You can hear his voice in them. They are delightful. This book is a collection of those tweets with illustrations. Perfect. I think it would also make a nice gift. ...

    This is pretty much exactly what I needed right now. I'd tattoo bits of it on me any day, just to remember that I'm not alone and that life is worth it.Thank you, Lin-Manuel.

    I don’t know if I loved more listening the ones I hadn’t seen before in his twitter profile or the ones I had seen and retweeted.

    Okay, so this is pretty much common knowledge by now, but I just want to reiterate the fact that LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA IS A FLIPPING GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!!I am one of those people that won't ever stop singing show tunes. I am obsessed with stuff like In The Heights and Hamilton, and I LOVE Mary Poppins Returns. (which I just saw today and definitely recommend!) So I was already a huge fan of Mr. Miranda. But this book... just added to that! Everything in...

    Let me set the scene: I'm having what could be classified as "a rough time" meaning that nothing is serious is wrong, everyone is healthy and I have people who love me, but I'm still finding reasons to cry at the gym or in my car. I go to the mailbox on Tuesday because my husband tells me he ordered a surprise for me weeks ago and it's here. Open the mailbox; it's PEP TALKS FROM LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA. I started crying in the street because there is ...

    Accept it for what it is— a collection of Twitter-ready inspirational sayings, aphorisms, and poems which convey the usual self-help niceties and advice (“Let’s make some new mistakes,” “This moment will pass,”” Face the day,” or “Dream big” for example.). Expecting much more from Miranda, I was underwhelmed.

    Positively delightful and uplifting. I can appreciate that I am affected by the talents of the author because I consider his creation of "Hamilton" to be brilliant. Fun to read. This was a book club exchange book at Christmas and I admit, I wanted to read it for myself (since I didn't end up with it). This would make a nice gift for any age.

    Super freaking cute. I wish I could have read these daily but it’s unfortunately a library book. I honestly do believe it has calmed me little.
