    I am too far from my 20s to gain anything from this book. Martin seems very attentive to how she thinks others might be thinking of her, and she tells herself stories about their disdain till she's an anxious wreck. The author's tone is drenched in privilege and seems unaware...

    The Book of Moods provides an incredibly accurate and relatable look at something so many of us deal with, our moods. And what are moods you ask? Lauren Martin explains it so perfectly on her Words of Women Instagram post that I had to share it here... "When I talk about#mood...

    If you've ever had a mood, questioned your emotions, or felt alone in the issues that surround womanhood, you need to read this book. Lauren Martin's heart and soul went into this book and her writing is that of an old friend sharing her life with you. Her incorporation of ps...

    I think that this came out in 2020 WAS SO PERFECT because I know she was working on it for years. When my self-esteem has been at my lowest, this made me feel understood, and by someone I respect. I follow her Words of Women account but did not expect her book to be SO. GOD. DAMN. RELA...

    I enjoyed this book so much! It was easy to read, but 100% relatable. Lauren tells stories and gives tips on her own journey to changing her moods from down to up. I felt like I could see myself in so many of them and it was all just great reminders of the little things we need to do e...

    This book came at the perfect time for me. My moods have been all over the place during our California pandemic lockdowns AND I'm pregnant. It's hard not to identify with my moods sometimes or give them more meaning than they deserve. This book does a great job of breaking do...

    As an avid and longtime follower of the Words of Women instagram account I was thrilled when I heard that Lauren was writing a memoir. She was kind enough to send me an advanced copy and I can honestly say that I devoured it in one sitting! I was familiar with Lauren's writing s...

    Found this book exactly when I needed it. It?s relatable, digestible, well written, and makes me feel seen. I appreciate knowing I?m not the only one that experiences these moods, and I?m glad to have some more tools in my toolbox to overcome them. ...

    This was SO GOOD and not at all what I expected. This book is about all the different areas of life and how to have a better attitude within them. Our author was SO relatable and used so many examples of her own bad attitudes and how she flipped them, I found this very practical and gr...

    This book was emotionally exhausting. You go from rooting for the author to realizing she spends most of this book behaving like a spoiled child who was never taught to play well with others. ...

    The author perfectly captured what so many of us consistently feel and allow to rule our lives. Somehow even though every woman experiences the struggles that the author writes about, the author wrote a memoir that feels extremely intimate. The self-care and scientific bits made this a...

    Thank you, Lauren, for writing this book! I finished it within two days of receiving it. It was so honest, genuine, true, and loving towards its readers. I felt proud of the author--for being brave enough to write and tell her whole truth, in the hopes that others would connect and fee...

    From Words of Women to The Book of Moods, Lauren Martin?s writing and research brings me to a place of learning, curiosity and most often, understanding of my own self. Her depiction of ?moods? in this book opened doors in my mind and heart that I didn?t know needed to be opene...

    What a wonderful self-help book! It was researched, raw, rare, funny, personal, and very very truthful. There were moments of wonderment and empathy, and then anger and understanding. So much of me was reflected in this book. I came across the author by chance and what a serendipitous ...

    EXCEPTIONAL. This book is undoubtedly in my all-time top five. Lauren?s writing is strikingly honest, in the most valuable way. It?s what I?ve loved about Words of Women. She tells the whole truth. We all have moments where we act out in ways we aren?t proud of. Few of u...

    As I was reading this book, I kept stopping and thinking to myself, "do I even like this book, should I keep reading this"? Which of course, wasn't a great sign. I did finish the book, it took me longer than I usually take to read a book, and it was a small book, but it ...

    You know those books you read in just one sitting? Well this book is exactly that, except I was reading it for days. I was trying to read every word carefully, trying to highlight sentences or paragraphs that hit home. I was trying to savor every chapter. I put it down so many times be...

    A masterpiece of a book! The book of moods is a work of art that seems to be years in the making. Lauren Martin knew her moments of up and downs of emotions needed some work, Thinking that there was something wrong with her. In The Book of Moods, Lauren goes in depth about who m...

    A couple years ago I started following Words of Women on Instagram and signed up for the weekly newsletter. It quickly became one of my favorite corners of the Internet; I liked how vulnerable and honest Martin?s writing was, how relatable and less alone it made me feel to hear inspi...

    "The Book of Moods" has been the most helpful book I've read in a while. It's not a self-help book, and it's not a memoir. It's this perfect hybrid of: here's what's happening to you, here's how I can help you through it, and here's wha...

    Moods. We all have them?but it?s always seemed to me that being ?moody? is such a negative thing. Well, the author just flipped that term on its head. Lauren teaches us all that wee can harness our moods and use them to our benefit. Her vulnerability, and honesty (especially wh...

    I loved the book. At least half of it. It is well-written, well-researched and insightful. And, it's very relatable and witty. If I had access to the print copy, I would have ear-marked the heck of out it. The Book of Moods by Lauren Martin is part memoir and part self-help. A...

    Wow. This book was special. I started reading this during a rough mental health week and I have to say it completely helped me not feel so alone in my feelings. Reading this book was the perfect little pick me up for those bad days. No matter how lucky or fortunate you are in life, you...

    I really enjoyed this one. I personally found Martin?s anecdotes and advice to be very real and practical. I?ve read a lot of criticism of her attitude throughout the book, however, I liked that she showed what could be perceived as a ?negative? side of her, owned up to her beh...

    As a psychologist who specializes in Women's Mental Health, I'm absolutely loving this book!!! Lauren provides an incredibly accurate and relatable depiction of what so many women struggle with. She humanizes and normalizes the extremely common (but often shame-inducing) patt...
