Summary

Read—and sung—by Sara Bareilles!

With refreshing candor, Sounds Like Me reveals Sara Bareilles—the artist and the woman—and her take on songwriting, soul-searching, and what's discovered along the way. She shares the joys and the struggles that come with creating great work, all while staying true to herself. Imbued with humor and marked by Sara's confessional writing style, this collection tells the inside story behind some of her most popular songs.

Most recently known for her chart-topper "Brave", Sara first broke through in 2007 with her multi-platinum single "Love Song". She has released five albums that have sold 2.5 million copies and spawned several hits. More than a privileged view inside the experience of a remarkable musical talent—this is a moving tribute to the universal search for growth, healing, and self-acceptance.

A lot of heart for a Little Voice

A witty, insightful, playful telling of a talented yet humble and introspective artist, Sara Bareilles.
I loved it.
But above all, my heart needed it.

Took me a while to start...

... but I was so glad I did. The musical parts of the book are just an acoustic version of one of her songs at the start of each chapter, so

Charming and refreshing - a real treat!

As only Sara would this isn't a story of her life, or an explanation of her songs. But something that twists in between those things, opening up the innards of her self discovery throughout her life.
It moved me to tears many times as her story rang true with my own and made me laugh at the funny situations life throws at us.
A real treat!

Now with added singing

Would you listen to Sounds Like Me again? Why?

Most definitely. In fact its on my relisten list for over christmas, in conjunction with the book.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Not so much a scene, instead the chapter introduction to every chapter which comes in the form of a acapella version of a song relevant to the chapter. Though there were scenes that made me laugh out loud, and others that made me want to cry (not recommended whilst driving).

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This book kept me company driving 250 miles one night, and it certainly made the journey a lot more pleasant than usual.

I laughed, I cried

Great book! So glad I listened to it, as Sara's way of reading and singing adds so much to the book. Very honest, open and funny. What a life (so far)!
