Literary Blog Hop Giveaway: Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed

Hello, and welcome to the Literary Blog Hop! This is a thrice yearly giveaway hop hosted by Leeswammes’ Blog. I, along with 41 other bloggers, am giving away a book of literary merit to one lucky reader!

If you’re a regular reader, it’s lovely to see you again, and if you’re visiting Books Speak Volumes for the first time, I’m thrilled to meet you! I’m super excited to participate in this giveaway for the second time. This time around I’m excited to offer a copy of Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed!

About the Book:

Strayed, author of Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, began writing the Dear Sugar advice column for The Rumpus anonymously in March 2010. She turned the advice column on its head. Unlike traditional columnists, she incorporates personal stories about her own life to get her points across — stories that are sometimes shocking and sometimes inspiring, but always brimming with humanity and empathy.

“You’re going to be all right. And you’re going to be all right not because you majored in English or didn’t and not because you plan to apply to law school or don’t, but because all right is almost always where we eventually land, even if we fuck up entirely along the way.”

Readers fell in love with her compassion, wisdom, wit, and deeply personal approach to providing advice. Tiny Beautiful Things collects her best columns, which cover topics as diverse as grief, acceptance, forgiveness, infidelity, abuse, jealousy, parenthood, anxiety about the future, and how to define oneself. Strayed’s writing is bursting with empathy, and she backs up her advice with her own stories. These are advice columns for people who don’t read advice columns; they read just as much as personal essays.

This is a book that I want to put into the hands of everyone I know. I think there is truly something for everyone in this book, and I challenge you not to cry at least once while reading it. Feel free to read my full review here!
