Amelia's Book Room: Advice My Parents Gave Me

Hey, guys! This week is the special review I mentioned; well, to you folks it's probably just another weekly review, but it means a lot to me! The author of today's book, Rodolfo Costa, has read my reviews and sent me a copy of his book, Advice My Parents Gave Me, to read and review! I was very excited to get my first requested book. Now, let's get started!

Advice My Parents Gave Me is, as you might have guessed, is a collection of pieces of advice on how to live your life to the fullest, 409 to be exact; interspersed with motivational quotes and proverbs. When I opened up the book for the first time, I thought to myself, I'm a fifteen year-old girl; this will be a good read, I'm sure, but how much of this can really apply to me? But as I started reading, it made me think about the way I live each day. I'm a generally shy person; I don't talk a lot, and when I do, I often speak quietly, I stick to what I'm used to, and most of all, I'm not very courageous in my second passion: dancing. I've been getting better, but when I read the first few entries about attitude and optimism, I felt a little nudge to work harder at being better, and not being afraid.

This is a lovely little book; I'll share a few of my favorites: #194: 'Read as much as you can, expand your mind; you will not only exercise your brain, but you will increase your knowledge, you will learn from the experiences of others, you will travel to new places, you will discover new cultures and you will expand the way you see and do things.' Words to live by! And #406 'No matter how old you are, never stop dreaming.'

All in all, this book is filled with lessons we should all remember, all throughout life. I enjoyed reading it, and I thank Mr. Costa (who you can follow on Twitter here) for sending me a copy, and most importantly, reading Dekoposh!

Happy reading!
