[Book Review] Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You

Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You by Lin-Manuel Miranda, illustrated by Jonny Sun is an absolutely delightful collection!

This is a book that you could sit and cruise through in a just short time, or pick it up to read one page every now and then spread them out. No matter how you choose to read this one, it will be a lovely experience.

Shout-out to the Bookery in Manchester for stocking this new release! I was SO happy to get my hands on a copy the same day it came out!

Let's dive in!

Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You by Lin-Manuel Miranda, illustrated by Jonny Sun

I knew the little pep talks were going to be great. After all, I already follow Lin-Manuel Miranda on Twitter, and I love seeing all of his morning and night affirmations. When I heard he was putting together a book of these tweets, I could not wait to get my hands on a copy. And what an amazing job they did with this!

First things first, how cute is this acknowledgement page?! I just love it:

The layout of the book is so much fun. I love that each page spread has a good morning and good night, many of which are in direct relation to the other. Where these little chunks of text are located on the pages varies, which adds to the overall feel and excitement of the book. It would be quite boring if they were all in the same spot on the page time and time again.

The illustrations were also lovely! I really enjoyed how simple most of them were, and how they each related to the little pep talk on that specific page. I'm definitely going to have to check out more of Jonny Sun's work after this!

As with any collection of things like this, there were a few pep talks that I enjoyed more than others.

Below are some of my favorites:

I really loved this collection and I highly recommend snagging a copy for yourself or to give as a gift! I can definitely see myself picking it up time and time again to read a random page.

Thanks for reading!
