Happy Thursday Bookish people! I’m very happy to bring you my book review for Happy Ever After: Financial Freedom Isn’t A Fairy Tale by The Seven Dollar Millionaire today as it is my stop on the book tour! Thank you to Literally PR for sending me a copy of this book.
This book review is going to be a little different to how I usually do them because there are no plots or characters to rate. So what I am going to do is write about the really great parts of the book, what some of the chapters are about and give an overall rating for the book.
I hope you enjoy this book review!
I don’t read a lot of nonfiction so this is not my usual genre, however I was surprised by this book. I expected a book talking exclusively about money and savings to not be very interesting. I was proved wrong by this book. I will say I didn’t enjoy this book in the usual sense of enjoying a book I am reading but I can appreciate that it had many great parts to it.
For example, the book has got a slight narrative. Throughout the book there are illustrations and chapters written like a fairy tale – it’s even being told to you by a talking frog. For me this did help with breaking up the pages of facts and information. On the topic of the facts and the information, it is written in a clear and concise way. I did find that I understood most, if not all, of what the book was trying to say. I think this is a very good thing that the author has managed to do because it easily could have been filled with mathematical terms and be difficult to understand.
Going into this book I already think about my money and the best way to save often, because I can get quite panicked about the future and having my finances sorted is a way of making me feel safer. This book taught me there is still more ways I can prepare myself for the future in terms of my savings and my spending each month.
It has a variety of chapters in this book, covering the M.I.S.S.I.O.N, income, saving, spending, investing and ownership. One of the most interesting chapters for me was about investing. Before this book I didn’t understand what investing was or what it meant, I knew of the term but I didn’t actually know what it was so I found learning about it very interesting.
I think this is an important topic because money and saving is very rarely spoken about yet it’s one of the most common worries that people have, so I think this book is something that I would recommend to anyone interested in learning more about money.
Overall I would rate this book:
That’s it for this book review, I hope you all enjoyed it!
