Descrição

Read-and sung-by Sara Bareilles!

With refreshing candor, five-time Grammy nominated singer songwriter Sara Bareilles reads her revealing and down to earth collection of essays on songwriting, soul searching, and what she's discovered along the way.

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

    Short and sweet. I really enjoyed the audio book as Bareilles is a great reader and she sang the snippets of the songs at the beginning of each chapter.Book Riot Read Harder Challenge 2016 Task 3: Collection of essays
  • (3/5)
    5 time Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter Sara Bareilles' story plays out (pun intended) "beautiful"ly. The adjective (beautiful) is used so many times. Literally, there's an entire chapter called "Beautiful Girl" where she writes letters to her younger self reminding her repeatedly that she is beautiful, life is beautiful, people are beautiful, etc. What was "beautiful" was finding out how she got to where she is now and who helped her along the way. Her self-esteem took a hit at a young age where she was labeled the "fat kid" and music helped pulled her out of the pit of self-doubt. Particularly with musical theatre, which led her to write a musical recently. The journey of her finding bravery and beauty was full of ups and downs but it's the people around her that help keep her going. Her writing is humorous and light-hearted even in the downs of her life. 3/5 stars for this book, mainly because of the overuse of the word "beautiful", the phrase "I liked him/her instantly", and that whole "Beautiful Girl" chapter. Some of it seemed like an autobiography and some of it seemed like journal entries. In the introduction alone she talks about how she didn't want to do this book so much that she wrote a musical and pushed this book off. Please note: a copy of this book was generously provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

    This is an emtertaining book of essays. I love her music and really enjoyed her book.

    Gave a great perspective, from an artist that I already adored. It also gave insight to the world of why musicians call themselves artists, I now get why their music is 'a part' of them!

    My fangirl crush on Sara B is very public, so this may be entirely biased. When I purchased this I thought it'd be an interesting, lighthearted insight into the person who creates so much music that I love, but it was so much more than that. When you get to hear someone bluntly and honestly tell you that they often run into walls themselves, it makes you feel like you're friends with this person no matter how much celebrity status they have. Listen to the end... the bloopers are pretty hilarious. Seriously, I got to the end of this book, recommended it to my other music loving (alto-singing) friends AGAIN, and then sat and wished I really could spend an afternoon with Sara. She's really, really awesome.

    Inspiring and honest, I loved every single word of it

    Eu ri horrores, eu chorei horrores, ressignifiquei muitas das músicas mencionadas - das quais gosto ainda mais agora - e não pude evitar que minha admiração por Sara crescesse. As histórias contadas me tocaram de formas sobre as quais ainda preciso pensar bastante pra entender exatamente o porquê. Imagino que seja um bom meio de primeiro contato pra quem não conhece o trabalho dela enquanto musicista; pra quem já conhece e ama, é um novo jeito de enxergá-la e ouvi-la, dessa vez com muito mais da pessoa incrível que ela é.

    Sounds like me: my life (so far) in song é um livro de ensaios da Sara Bareilles costurado por algumas de suas músicas. No total, são 8 ensaios, e todos eles têm como ponto de partida uma música.

    Ouvi o audiobook desse livro e tenho certeza de que, no caso desse livro, esse é o formato ideal. Escutar a própria Sara cantando trechos de suas músicas acapella e lendo os ensaios com sensibilidade e senso de humor foi uma experiência maravilhosa.

    Cada ensaio narra um aspecto de sua vida, acrescido de reflexões que Sara faz sobre o que é narrado. Todos os textos são lindíssimos e muito bem construídos, havendo um fio que conduz o ensaio e que sustenta os pensamentos e sentimentos abordados.

    Eu já gostava muito da Sara e, depois desse livro, meu carinho e minha admiração por ela só aumentaram. Sounds like me é uma leitura divertida e sensível, que traz leveza e um quentinho no coração.

    Sara's voice and words sing.
    Heaps of praise all day.

    Don't miss the bloopers at the end; just like the rest of the book, lovely (in Sara Yoda voice, "But mean what lovely really does?") and silly and real. Never been to a concert before, but I know I'd really enjoy hers.

    Dear Sara, thank you for sharing another part of your life to us. I love listening to your essays (and your songs too!) Thank you for sharing your music with us :)

    What an amazing, personal story from Sara Bareilles (with the added touch of her singing on the audio version)! After hearing how much she has grown in order to become the person she is today, her life lessons could be helpful to many, not just for singers/performers. She seems so grounded for all that she has achieved and presents her essays and personal stories in a fun, but also touching way.
