Summary

We know there are certain things we must have to survive - food, shelter, and safety to name a few. But there are also aspects of life that truly allow us to be joyful and fulfilled. For popular podcaster and bestselling author Annie F. Downs, fun is close to the top of that list. Few would argue that having fun doesn't enrich our lives, but so much gets in the way of prioritizing it. Tough days, busyness, and feelings that are hard to talk about keep us from the fun that's out there waiting to be found.

With That Sounds Fun, Annie offers an irresistible invitation to understand the meaning of fun, to embrace it and chase it, and to figure out what, exactly, sounds fun to you - then do it! Exploring some research and sharing some thoughts behind why fun matters, she shows you how to find, experience, and multiply your fun. With her signature storytelling style and whimsical vulnerability, Annie is the friend we all need to guide us back to staying true to ourselves and finding the fun we need.

Contains content exclusive to the audiobook.

The perfect balance

Annie strikes the perfect balance of meaningful and fun, are we surprised? With each chapter she builds on truth and her wisdom and joy dig deeper and deeper. I found myself giggling and nodding my head in agreement at points while one chapter made me ugly cry in the best most healing way. Read this book, you’ll be glad you did.

The title is not appropriate at all

If you’re looking for a cathartic memoir on Christianity and finding one’s place in the world then it may be for you. If you’re looking for a self help book or anything with organised advice it is not for you.

It bills as a compelling self help book but it’s actually an intimate collection of short stories in autobiography form that while interesting have little in the way of summary. It’s also intertwined with her faith.

It’s a good memoir and poetic in its style but nothing like what it’s advertised as so really felt like my time was waisted. Maybe I would have enjoyed it if it’s what I was in the mood for but really put off by the book being nothing like the book
