BIGGER Book Review

BIGGER Book Review by Yvonne Glasgow. Sharing spiritual awakening, one light at a time.

BIGGER Book Review. “BIG” is how you may react to this book review. When you publish a story with a large title, like “Bigger than All the Night Sky”…

Well, your hopes may be big. But how many people will even click on a link for one book among so many? How many will stop to read a memoir that includes a handful of poems? Who will dare — or care — to write a review?

I’ll tell you who.

Some of you Blog-Buddies. That’s who. Thanks! Since you’ve generously shared your reviews at amazon.com. (Read ’em at the previous link.)

And definitely do keep reading today’s post. Because reviewer YVONNE GLASGOW is such a poet. She dared. She cared.

Her words moved me. In order to appreciate them, you don’t have to have spent years writing about “The Start of Spiritual Awakening. A Memoir.” Just check out a few choice paragraphs that follow, quoted from the Glass Goat Publishing website.

I’m honored to share this review with you.

BIGGER Book Review Intro

Before I share this book review with you, let’s acknowledge YVONNE.

Her website is Glass Goat Publishing. While the tag line reads “Books for your mind.”

It takes considerable creativity, spunk, and persistence to offer this website. Because YVONNE reads books for free. (A rarity, if you’ve looked at hundreds of other review website. Enough said!)

Fascinated by that poetic name, “Glass Goat” Publishing?

Check out YVONNE GLASGOW’S last name. Instantly you taste it. Her unabashed, courageous imagination.

It’s the imagination of a poet.

Yes, a Poet Wrote this BIGGER Book Review

Reading what follows, you might want to give YVONNE credit. Because choosing poetry takes courage.

Have you read my memoir yet? Then maybe you remember the part where my big, huge crush from High School — Mark Seligson — did what? He created a banner and displayed it out the school window. (Where everybody could see it.)

“The active mind needs poetry. Join the Walt Whitman Society.”

Mark got into trouble for that act of teenage courage. But he sure inspired me.

May YVONNE’S book review website inspire you! Because you’ll find plenty of reviews there. Not just the following one.

Hey, here it is!

BIGGER Book Review at Glass Goat Publishing

I want to begin with the fact that this is an intriguing memoir about life, growing up, and spiritual awakening. The author’s story begins at birth, a page in each of our personal unwritten memoirs most of us don’t remember. Even when I focus my intent on childhood, I can only get back to about age 5.

Bigger Than All The Night Sky is laced with childhood trauma, lessons in failure, messages from God, and all of the typical things we each experience as we make our way through childhood. Rose’s story is a tale that evolves with her spiritual awakening, a life that leads her to be a future spiritual leader. It’s an inspiring story for people like me, who are on their own everlasting spiritual journey.

It’s an easy and quick read, as you get sucked into poetically written words of the author’s life. She is a poet, not just a spiritual guide, after all. This is one of the things that attracted me to the book – souls alike.

Bigger Than The Night Sky is a lifelong tale, but it won’t take you a lifetime to get through it. What you will find is that it inspires you to follow your dreams, to find your path. This is a profound read – if you’re ready to change your life, I highly recommend it. We all have a greater purpose; by learning how Rose found hers, maybe you’ll be able to do the same.

The author herself sent me this amazing book for my unbiased review.

    This is a lovely review of your book Rose!

    I do recall the part where your crush Mark hung that sign. I love poetry too, so I do appreciate that and the elegance of your writing.

    Although it is an easy rhythmic read, I must admit (embarrassingly), I am a very slow reader, have been since I can remember.

    However, this does help me to absorb it very well, and I do get to enjoy a slow read much more. Just my way and it works.

    Lindsey says:

    Sometimes I come upon a word I don’t know or recall the meaning of, which is just so intriguing, captivating.

    I look it up at Google. I haven’t opened a real book dictionary in years, sadly.

    Lindsey says:

    Actually, I’m too busy to try to find that real dictionary.

    I might even have given it away when I moved to a new house.

    However, my snail paced reading has always had its benefits, such as perfect timing.

    For instance, I did manage to be able to ask a Russian speaking flight attendant a while back, what was the word for “Life” in Russian? I has that chance to ask just after reading that particular chapter.

    Lindsey says:

    LOL, imagine that! I didn’t even have to wait and ask you, Rose. (Although I like that best.) Nor did it require googling, either! Yay, for saving time! I love efficiency.

    Funny word indeed, quite the antithesis of “Life” in sound. Indeed, that word sounded quite depressing.

    So, thank you for sharing your story, I do agree very much with Yvonne Glasgow…in even more ways than her words so beautifully describe.

    I’m so fortunate you’re in my life story, the living of it is even sweeter than the short or long slow read…I wish it to last forever.❤️

    It is an adorable photo! And what a great book review. I greatly enjoyed reading your memoir and am planning to reread it so that I can write a review for Amazon.

    I’m looking forward to part 2 of your memoir and hope you decide to publish it.

    Thanks so much to each of you for these comments, awe! And it’s very KYLIE to reread my memoir just to do an excellent Amazon review. I love that. Writing a review at the world’s biggest bookstore can be your chance to write a beautiful, heartfelt article that countless browsers can read. And without having to work as hard as a reviewer like Yvonne, establishing a book review blog.

    On the other hand… Please know, Blog-Buddies, even a sentence or two, plus a handful of stars, totally counts as doing a review at Amazon. Your personal perspective peeks out.

    Partly too, at Amazon, it’s a numbers game. All those reviews add up.

    For this indie publisher, Amazon is my storefront. Many folks won’t even look at a book unless it’s got a lot of reviews and a whole lot of stars. So thanks so much for all of you who’ve been my reviewers online!

    That is a very sweet review, and mine is another vote for adorable on your photo here.

    I’ll be rereading this too, along with my necessary allotment of Kleenex for the chapters on your prelife planning meeting. That is my favourite part – it stills my soul every time.

  14. 14

    About Part Two of my memoir, KYLIE, soon as I’ve got at least 100 5-star reviews I’ll make it a priority to publish it. (So far, the noble number is nine.)

    Like “Bigger than All the Night Sky,” I first-drafted both parts of my memoir while in Japan, teaching and doing sessions for VOICE. Back in 2010. If a country can serve as a muse, Japan is one of my muse countries. (Another is Ireland, where I gave a tiny tour some years ago. And, of course, my main Country Muse is the U.S.A. — a country that still has so much goodness in it.)
