“When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.” This is the focus of Bittersweet which is a collection of short essays. It’s cover invites you to sit, read, and reflect on your life as Shauna shares from her life.

In full disclosure, I couldn’t finish this book. For the most part I liked the essays I read, but it felt like I was reading blog post after blog post rather than reading a flowing book. Each chapter stands alone while still touting the book’s title. If you enjoy reading short bits here and there, you probably would enjoy reading this book. I personally couldn’t keep myself engaged in it long enough to finish it. Having not read it in it’s entirety I can not say whether I endorse the content or not, but I will say that I appreciated the message Shauna shares in the chapters I did read.
