very good livesTeen Book Recommendation #15: Very Good Lives: The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination by J.K. Rowling

page count: 80

pub date: April 14th, 2015

genre: non-fiction (speech)

age group: teen+

My Rating: 4 / 5 stars*

Why am I recommending this book?:  It’s super short and therefore a very quick read.  Did you see that it’s only 80 pages (and there is not a lot of text on those pages).  It’s a fantastic read.  It’s a feel good read or maybe it’s more of an inspirational read.

If you’ve ever needed a bit of a pick-me-up this is the book to do it. We are all going to fail at some point and it’s nice to hear about what you can do with that failure. I mean really if it worked for J.K. Rowling it can work for us too, right?


*a note on my rating system:  I go by the rates I use on goodreads.com, which are as follows:

1 star = did not like it

2 stars = it was okay

3 stars = liked it

4 stars = really liked it

5 stars = it was amazing

Anything a 3 or above is worth reading, in my opinion.  I’ve read a lot of books that I have given 3 stars to, and I don’t regret any of them.
