Blog Tour: Review of Percolate by Elizabeth Hamilton-Guarino @BestEverYou @lovebooksgroup

Today is my stop on the tour for Percolate by Elizabeth Hamilton-Guarino. I have a review for you today and if you like the sound of that you can click here to order your copy now. I also have a reading vlog over on my Instagram today so you can also check that out! Don't forget to stop by the other stops on the tour for more exclusive content and reviews.

Here's what it's all about...

Do you have a voice inside you saying that you want something different? Do you feel like you're searching for something better, even if you don't know exactly what it is? When you hear words like consciousness, purpose, light and awaken, do you wonder how they apply to your life? If you answered yes to any of these questions, have no fear - this book is here to help! It provides simple, clear and understandable thoughts for a growing consciousness, even in a time when people are questioning everything from guiding principles to social structures.

In our fast-paced world, Percolate stands as a metaphor for how to move forward with growing awareness:
To wake up to what is possible without losing sight of the simple and practical things that already exist
To let your heart and mind brew powerful ideas, and your spirit float to the top like foam
To live your best life and thrive
Most importantly, to never give up

Grab a cup of joe, put your feet up, allow the steam to rise, and let your heart's desire surface. Ah, can you taste the magic as you bring the authentic best you to the world?

Review: Well this was a really different read for me. I was totally attracted to it because of the cover and my love of coffee but I was then drawn to the concept of a self-help book based on the concept of coffee percolating and using that analogy throughout the book for self reflection and self improvement.

This book is broken down into small manageable sections which means that it is easy to pick up and put down and each section is clearly delineated so that ti is easy to look back and reflect. It also give your practical things to do and actual calls to action. Those calls to action could be sitting and reflecting, writing something down or picking some things from a list to work on.

Most sections of the book were easily adaptable to my situation and also qere relevent to the times we find ourselves in right now. There were a couple fo sections that didn't resonate with me, particularly those on 'healthy living' i felt like some of the ideas in that section conflicted with some of the self-acceptance ideas in other sections. One section that I found particularly helpful was part of the 'Choose a Bolder Brew' section, taking inventory. There is a self evaluation in this chapter broken down into areas of life and then there is space to write down accomplishments at the end of the self evaluation. I liked the sentiment of this section and I liked the practical aspect of it too.

Overall this was a good book to push me outside of my comfort zone, I loved the coffee analogy throughout the book and the 'Coffee Break' moments peppered in between chapters.
