i understand & appreciate what this book is trying to do. i just don't think it did it that well.

two stars for the beauty that this book captured, and the handful of beautiful phrases, lines and sections. i think this book could help some people, and could inspire. the author is very honest with her experiences and i think if you are in the creative industry, it's worth a go. i did feel like there were some things i related to and that could possibly slightly shift my thinking if

It will always be spring again. There will always be a new day. - Eriksson

First of all, I wanted to thank the author for sending me a copy of her beautiful book.

When I received the email if I would like to read Everything changed when I forgave myself by Charlotte Eriksson, I totally fell in love with the cover and the story behind the book. I personally enjoy personal growth books because I feel like you can always take something with you for yourself.

2018 has been a very tough year for me. There have been so many ups and downs, more downs than up quite recently and when Charlotte reached out to me to read and review her book, I believed that maybe her words could soothe my aching heart. And they did.
I read this slowly, to allow the words to soak in and touch the dark places of my heart. Some parts i didn't connect with but i connected with the majority of this book, so much that it hurt. I found myself dog earing many, many pages and w

This will be one of those books that I think I will return to again and again because it resonated so strongly with me. This will sound crazy, but I feel as though I was reading about a version of me from a parallel universe: I related to so much of it. I felt like I was reading an old journal, from a time I couldn't remember. I loved it. I loved the personal journal entries, mixed with poetry and questions. Lots of questions. I loved it.

Never a dull moment reading a book my Char has so passionately put together, whether your listening to her music or taking an adventure through her book pages, you don’t feel like your just reading a book, you feel like your deep in a conversation with Char and it’s like she’s chilling with you. So many praises I have about this book and recommend you all read it ❤ Charlotte Eriksson ...more

An inspiring book, brings so much hope and some kind of happiness in my everyday life. The style is non fiction, so it can be a little odd sometimes if you’re not used to it. I’m used to it, I love it.

This book is so much more than just words, its a life thats depicted in stunning shapes of literature that come out of the book and impact upon your own life. Charlotte's writing is so personal and relatable, a real poet of this generation to notice.

"Like a modern day vagabonding beat poet, the possible love-child of Patti Smith and Jack Kerouac — Eriksson is a rare soul in today's society. Carefully balancing between wanting to defy the world, and wanting nothing more than to be a part of it."
