One of my favorite book series to read, Chicken Soup for the Soul, has hundreds of topics to choose from. Love, Loss, Happiness, Pets, Miracles, Home, Relationships – there is a book on everything under the sun. I have read and loved plenty of Chicken Soup for the Soul books in the past so when I picked up Home Sweet Home, I knew I would like it.
Now since CSFTS is a well-known and well-loved series, I first felt that a review would not be necessary but after reading it, I found that this book had something different to offer and may or may not be everyone’s cup of tea.
CSFTS Home Sweet Home has 101 stories that will make you smile, laugh and cry. Some of the sub-topics include:
- On the Move
- Buying and Selling
- Dreams Can Come True
- Remodeling, Redecorating. Repairing
- Through the Generations
- You CAN Go Home Again
- Unwanted Guests
- Do-It-Yourself Disasters
- Downsizing and Retiring
- What Makes A Home
There are also some really nice quotes in this book. I have featured a handful in my Inspirational Quotes post but here are two of my most favorite quotes from the book:
Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to. ~ John Ed Pearce
Don’t save something for a special occasion. Every day of your life is a special occasion. ~ Thomas S. Monson
