Twirl by Patsy Clairmont Book Review



Twirl  by Patsy Clairmont Review

I love it when I finish reading a book and it is full of notes and underlined parts. At that point I know I have had a connection with a book and that it is a book that has impacted my life.

Twirl by Patsy Clairmont is a wonderful book full of humor, inspiration, and motivation. Who wouldn't love to read a book like that? I have to admit, up until now I haven't read any books by Patsy Clairmont. However, I am now a huge fan and I can't wait to get a hold of another one of her books. 

Twirl is full of short easy to read chapters where "Patsy's hope is to help her readers maintain a dynamic view on life with activities and choices that lead to renewal and peace." While reading Twirl I found myself laughing one minute and then in deep thought the next minute. One of my favorite parts of the book is at the end of each chapter Patsy asks several questions for you to ponder. At the end of the "Read" chapter  Patsy ends with a quote that I just love. The quote says, "I like a book that invites me in, treats me with respect, and one I can exit with my integrity still intact". Don't you love Patsy's voice as a writer? Patsy then concludes the "Read" chapter by asking questions like:



1.       Why do you read?

2.       What authors peak your language?

Some of the other chapter titles are: Bloom, Rest, Laugh, Pen, Brave, Sparrow, Be, Story, etc. There are 26 chapters/topics that Patsy discusses in Twirl.

I can't express enough how much I enjoyed reading this book. Twirl is a book that I will go back and revisit often. I feel it Patsy's words helped me learn new things about myself as well as taught me how to pay better attention to what my mind, body, and spirit needs. So, thank you Patsy for that.

I wanted to share with you a few more quotes that I loved from the book Twirl. I have also included the page number so that you can find the quote easily once you run down and purchase your own copy of this outstanding book. It was extremely hard to narrow down which ones to share, because like I mentioned earlier, my whole book is practically underlined with quotes I loved.

"Kindness never loses its charm." ~ pg. 46 

"Oh that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest. I would flee far away." pg. 43

"Let's make good choices, pace ourselves, listen to our bodies, establish healthy boundaries, and soak up a fresh outlook." pg. 113

You can find Twirl here at Barnes and Noble and here at Patsy's website.
