Genres: Self-help, Motivation

Confidence Your Secret Weapon is a personal development guide that provides readers with the tools they need to improve confidence, develop high self-esteem, and set goals to achieve their dreams.

Confidence Your Secret Weapon will help readers form a healthy and self-assured thought process, and to recognize that confidence is a never ending journey, where there is always room for growth and improvement.

This book has been sitting in our TBR list for a very long time. In fact, it was one of the very first books that we agreed to review. Being new, to the blogging world, resulted in our making our fair share of of which was expecting part-time reviewers to share our passionate for reading. Life happened, reviewers left, and our TBR list continued to grow. Needless to say, there were times that we became overwhelmed with the requests/support that CommonBookSense was getting and we had a hard time prioritizing. Our authors, fans, publishers, and even our critics are important to us. We made a commitment and, regardless of how behind we've fallen, we intend to keep our word!

Confidence your Secret Weapon is one of those motivational/self-help books that make you take notice. I literally highlighted five key points within the first few pages. Ashley McLean's "former" self is one that I can relate to. I was her in high school. I can very vividly remember the dreadful days of having to read aloud in class. There were times I felt physically ill....wondering if I was the only person who dreaded speaking in front of others. THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN FOR THAT GIRL. It was written in a way that promotes self reflection, while being extremely relatable.

I am certain that I will revisit this book again. It will be my secret "refresher course," anytime I feel like my confidence is wavering. I feel like this would be the perfect book for a high school English to start a new school year with. I know it is definitely one that my daughter will be reading!

As always, all the good links can be found below.
