gmorning, lin-manuel miranda!
you wrote this book for me - a reader, a fan, a human -
to tell me how important, wonderful, and inspiring i am.
and so this review is for you.
you, the creator of moments
and cherisher of memories.
you, who transform letters into places of safety.
so live well today,
knowing your words will always be home.

gnight, lin-manuel miranda!
you wrote a book for me - a bookworm, an admirer, a person -
which told me how significant, lovely, and motivating i am.

I didn't realize how much I needed this book until I read it.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, the genius behind Hamilton and In the Heights , has a pretty prolific following on Twitter. Each day he provides a tweet of encouragement in the morning and one in the evening. Sometimes they're humorous, sometimes they're inspirational, and sometimes they just hit you right where you need them to.

Gmorning, Gnight! Little Pep Talks for Me & You is a compilation of those tweets of encouragement, accompanied

I'm holding off on rating this because I listened to it on audio and didn't get to see any of Jonny's drawings, which I expect will be integral to the book. But just for the listening experience of Lin narrating this, his soothing voice, how short it was, how personalized the advice and kind words were in his lovely voice, I adored it. I listened to this in 45 minutes as I was lying in bed and playing Animal Crossing before going to sleep, and it made me smile and tear up and totally relax. I'm ...more

¡Me gustó mucho!

Creo que le faltó "algo" para las 5 estrellas, pero sin duda fue un libro precioso y que me hizo terminarlo con una gran sonrisa. ¡Además el audiolibro dura menos de una hora! Lo escuché todo seguido y me la pasé FELIZ. Obvio ayudó que fuera narrado por el mismo Lin-Manuel Miranda. Amo a ese hombre, soy afortunada de estar viva al mismo tiempo que él.
"What if — instead of compulsively reaching for your phone — you could reach for a book? A kind of comfort object that could keep you company all day long.

I love Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You. Seriously, I truly love this book. It is a charmming book of wonderfully inspiring pep talks. I feel so good starting and ending my day reading Lin-Manuel Miranda inspiring words, & Jonny Sun's drawings make me smile.

Perfection. Lin-Manuel Miranda is maybe the most phenomenal human being on the planet.

A personal story about how one of Lin's tweets helped me:

The news that Anthony Bourdain had taken his own life came when I was at my own emotional low-point. I was in a job that I had loved and fought for, but was working for a boss who was destroying my soul. Before long, it grew into the single worst depressive episode of my life. I often woke up at 2 in the morning filled with dread, thinking to myself, "I

This book is a compilation of short pep talks for each morning and evening, with illustrations that really add to the text (like flying garbage trucks, for example). The texts are compiled from Miranda's Twitter greetings, and I think this is a really good choice, hence my five stars.

The mornings and evenings mirror each other; you can dip into the book at random, or just go through, gradually or like a book. You might also sometimes feel like putting some on Post-Its or other places of written/

Your best impulse, that selfless impulse, let

Let it drive you toward the person you

I got my daughter Lin-Manuel Miranda's book of daily affirmation/pep tweets. I guess that is a thing. They are sweet. I stil don't regret spending her future college money on Tickets to Broadway's Hamilton in July, 2016. I thought that would finally quench my daughter's interest in Hamilton, L-MM, etc., but I neglected to plan for what a craf

Reading this book was like receiving a warm hug from a loved one that you haven’t seen in a very long time. Like coming home and feeling instantly safer. Like looking up at the sky and knowing that no matter what happens, you will be okay.

The world needs more books like these! Rooted in honesty- these pep talks are extremely likely to further brighten any day. It’s definitely a book I’ll be grabbing off the shelf when I need a pick me up.

Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You is an adorable book of affirmations, that is equal parts inspirational and funny plus the gorgeous illustrations are an added treat to the eyes.

On the whole, this book is really very simple, just a few words accompanying the good morning and good night greetings, but those handful of words are totally spot on! One could open this up at any page and read it and be delighted/inspired/encouraged by them. I think this is a perfect coffee-table bo

Outstanding!!!! Standing ovation!!!!

Resist the urge to read it all in one go. Take it in little bits and savor them for the beautiful blessings that they are. I have so many pages bookmarked to go back to. :)

The illustrations are wonderful!

I don’t have a book of quotations
Or wisdom I pull from the shelf;
Most often the greetings I wish you
Are the greetings I wish for myself.

So if I write “relax,” then I’m nervous,
Or if I write, “cheer up,” then I’m blue.
I’m writing what I wish somebody would say,
Then switching the pronoun to you.

And after a few years of greetings,
They started to vary in tone;
And people said, “Lin, your gmornings and nights
Are the nicest things up in my phone.”

What's not to love about Lin-Manuel Miranda? This book i

This is pretty much exactly what I needed right now. I'd tattoo bits of it on me any day, just to remember that I'm not alone and that life is worth it.

Thank you, Lin-Manuel.

I don’t know if I loved more listening the ones I hadn’t seen before in his twitter profile or the ones I had seen and retweeted.
Lin-Manuel Miranda is a national treasure. He’s a precious Cinnamon (Linnamon) Roll who needs to be protected always and is one of the only reasons I use Twitter. Basically...I love him. He regularly does good morning and good night tweets. Little snippets of love and encouragement. You can hear his voice in them. They are delightful. This book is a collection of those tweets with illustrations. Perfect. I think it would also make a nice gift. (Hint hint-my copy was from the library. Just saying ...more

Let me set the scene: I'm having what could be classified as "a rough time" meaning that nothing is serious is wrong, everyone is healthy and I have people who love me, but I'm still finding reasons to cry at the gym or in my car. I go to the mailbox on Tuesday because my husband tells me he ordered a surprise for me weeks ago and it's here. Open the mailbox; it's PEP TALKS FROM LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA. I started crying in the street because there is maybe nothing in the world that would have made me ...more
Accept it for what it is— a collection of Twitter-ready inspirational sayings, aphorisms, and poems which convey the usual self-help niceties and advice (“Let’s make some new mistakes,” “This moment will pass,”” Face the day,” or “Dream big” for example.). Expecting much more from Miranda, I was underwhelmed.

Positively delightful and uplifting. I can appreciate that I am affected by the talents of the author because I consider his creation of "Hamilton" to be brilliant. Fun to read. This was a book club exchange book at Christmas and I admit, I wanted to read it for myself (since I didn't end up with it). This would make a nice gift for any age.

Super freaking cute.

I wish I could have read these daily but it’s unfortunately a library book.

I honestly do believe it has calmed me little.
