Blogger Book Reviews in a Nutshell: Maranda

Blogger Book Reviews in a Nutshell on Mental Health @ Home

I’ve read and reviewed some great books written by members of our blogging community, so I wanted to share them with you again in a nutshell version.  Click the book covers to be taken to my full reviews.

This week I’ve got several books from Maranda Russell.

Book cover: No More Grumpies by Maranda Russell


No More Grumpies

This lovely children’s book will likely remind any adult of their own grumpy moments from their childhood. The little boy’s complaint “This bacon isn’t crispy enough” was music to my ears.



Book cover: Searching For The Truth by Maranda RussellSearching for the Truth

The book takes a very personal look at difficult topics like death, uncertainty, pain, and fear.  Descriptors are concise but meaningful, like “emotional sewage” and “their heads sloshing over with tough questions.”



Book cover: Not Afraid to be real by Maranda RussellNot Afraid to Be Real

The themes in the book move from love to struggle and darkness and then on to hope, concluding with some quirky fun.  It’s written in a way that’s very accessible and real even for people who don’t typically read poetry.  Maranda definitely delivers on her preference for a gritty, down-to-earth style of poetry.


All of the books I’ve reviewed are listed on my book reviews page.
