Extraordinary Ordinary Moments, a journal By Jorey Hurley

I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.

Extraordinary Ordinary Moments: A Journal by Jorey Hurley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is such a neat idea!! Each page has a cute little picture and a prompting..to writer or even draw(since its blank no lined paper)

The drawings are simple and only take up a small part of the page, and while I like that the pages are blank I can see it annoying other people. When I read the description I thought it was going to be lined paper to write on so no lined took me by surprise.

But I do think this would be a very nice gift for anyone who likes to journal or draw.


A journal for appreciating the beautiful, the quirky, the surprising, and the overlooked.

Throughout the hustle and bustle every day, we must remember to slow down, unplug, and take in our surroundings. Illustrator Jorey Hurley has made the quest for mindfulness easy. Her gentle prompts, paired with bright but delicate illustrations, will encourage you to reflect on those seemingly mundane moments and find what makes them worthy of holding on to. Maybe your watermelon at breakfast was perfectly crisp, or the brake lights of traffic formed a beautiful pattern. Each page offers a new opportunity to jot down a story, paste in a picture, or doodle something from your imagination. As the days go by, you’ll discover how this one small ritual will put you more in tune with yourself and the world around you.
