I love, love, love Katie. I’m pretty sure everyone’s aware of her story but just in case someone’s not, well… this is what happened in a nutshell. Back in 2008 Katie, who was working in the media at the time and was hoping to become a TV presenter, was attacked by her boyfriend. First she was raped and then a few days later the guy got another man to throw sulphuric acid in her face as she was leaving her home. Katie was blinded in

There are times in our lives when we all need direction, renewed energy and evocative reflections of uplifting impaction.

Katie Piper is a beautiful, inspirational heroine who radiates confidence and projects warmth. Her remarkable road to recovery is something I regard with great admiration and respect.

Within this collection of inspired connotations, mantras and memorable quotes is a clear undertone of hope. We are reminded that no matter what we’re going through, we are never alone

Beautiful, motivational read!

I really like quotes and inspirational words, so when I heard about Start Your Day With Katie by Katie Piper, I was really eager to read it. But this is more than just a book of affirmations.

On the surface, it's similar to 365 Days of Wonder by R. J. Palacio, which I loved; a page a day with something inspirational to read. Some of the affirmations are a little longer than expected and maybe not quite so poetic, but something to really take in and think

I've followed Katie's story for a few years now and have read other books of hers. I find her strength amazing and a book like this is exactly what I would expect from her.
I'm a lover of inspirational quotes so this little book is right up my street. It has a quote for every day of the year and can be dipped in and out of when you need a little pick-me-up.
I downloaded this onto Kindle, but I wish I had bought a hard copy.
It would make a great gift for a loved one or someone going through a hard

An amazing book filled with so much positivity. We all need a pick-me-up at times, and this book is certainly that, so inspiring and motivating.

Defintely a book I will turn to in hard times. I made lots of highlights and my own personal notes in it too!

This is a lovely (very pretty) little book! This would of been 5 stars, however I felt that a few of the quotes were the same just worded differently.
