It wasn't a book about gossipy, juicy topics and yet she For those of you who don't know, Jennifer Lopez is one my girl-crushes. It wasn't a book about gossipy, juicy topics and yet she didn't hold back on naming the loves and mistakes of her life. She mostly talked about her self esteem, her children, and how she has made so many love mistakes, all in public, and yet still wants to find that one person who can make her happy after she learns to become happy with herself.

In True Love, she doesn't hide anything about the personal process of learning to love and value herself, even if parts of it sound goofy - which it kind of even doesn't, because she is so earnest and sincere.

The book is structured on the journey from Jennifer's divorce to her first world tour, and her personal story is linked to the different sections of the stage show and the set list. It is not written in a super-professional style, which seems very realistic for a non-writer. While she acknowledges some editing help, I do believe she wrote it herself - no ghostwriter.
This is a beautiful book with loads of photos from her tour, and candid family shots. The whole thing is printed on heavy, glossy paper with photos, pull quotes, song lyrics, etc stylized in colour and on separate pages in a way I have not seen before.
Recommended for fans. Nov 06, Nerisa Eugenia Waterman rated it it was amazing. And… what was revealed… was a story of love, joy, disappointments, heartbreaks, and her struggle with low self-esteem. Jennifer Lopez, the mother…the actress… the singer… allowed us the readers… to sit front row and become spectators of her life. This book really touched me in ways that I was not anticipating, it made me cry… it made me smile…and it motivated me to continue to pursue my passion in life.
I think this is a book that everyone can identify with, and her story is no doubt…Inspirational. Jennifer Lopez did an amazing job telling her story to the World, which I imagine could not have been an easy task.
Once again…she has done it again…she has shown the World she is simply…Jenny from the block. And now she can add a new title to her long list…Author. Feb 27, Jennifer Brown rated it it was amazing. So I love Jennifer Lopez's music and movies I even thought Gigli wasn't half bad , and now I love her as a person as well! This book shows you who she really is and how real of a person she is.
True Love shows how she basically found herself after her very public divorce. She is a beautiful person inside and out and I wish her happiness in her future! Lame, I know but really I wanted the juicy details but she literally lets you know on the first five pages this book will not give you any juicy details about relationships like you were hoping. I was disappointed not going to lie but I kept reading to see just what was this book about.
What was it about exactly? Learning to live, love and dance again after having your fairy tale dream comes to an end. Picking up the pieces and learning to live again, to love again and to dance. Jennifer mentions after every major break up or major event in her life she has to do something to keep herself busy, distracted or avoiding the issue completely. The idea for a world tour came a couple days after her separation from Marc Anthony. She does explain what happened between them and how that helped form her world tour.
She does go into details about the tour, how she designed each segment and why. It gave you a glimpse of the real Jennifer not the one we see splashed on magazine covers. The true human being. She was afraid of what her kids would think. I ended up reading the entire book in sitting. When I finished it, I felt empowered, inspired, and motivated. It was definitely not what I was expecting when I first read the book. My Favorite Quotes: They are the people that support and love you by giving you strength when you need it most.
The adversity you come across in life may cause pain, but with pain comes growth and the opportunity to rise to the occasion as your strongest, best self. You deserve comfort , you deserve honesty, and you deserve to feel safe. May 03, Debbie rated it it was amazing.
Every single one of us struggles with relationships. Lately I have been going through some hard times that I never saw coming. I was completely blindsided by them and I had no idea how to react to them. This post, although a bit hard for me, is something I felt the need to share.
Since everyone that reads this blog shares a love of reading as I do, I feel connected in some way with each and every one of you. We all experience difficul Every single one of us struggles with relationships. We all experience difficulties in life. This book found its way into my sights at just the right moment and touched me so deeply, I felt the need to share.
I have always admired Jennifer Lopez. I first started following her career when I saw the movie Selena and I just thought she was such a great singer and performer. Ever since then, I have kept up with what she has been doing. She has had several failed relationships that have been very public. She talks about her breakup with Marc and how this relationship opened her eyes to her patterns in love.
She couldn't figure out why she couldn't get love right. When someone hurts you, you automatically tend to blame yourself. You think what could I have done differently? Why wasn't I good enough? But in reality, relationships fail for many different reasons and usually it isn't your fault.
It is just circumstances working against you. Jennifer discusses her last few serious relationships and starts to realize that she spent a lot of time trying to be perfect. She wanted this person to believe she could be their everything. When she couldn't be perfect, she started to be sad. This was a pattern she found kept repeating over and over again.
She then realized she wasn't happy within herself.
I know its crazy. Jenifer Lopez wasn't happy with herself? But, I guess she really is just like you and me. I loved the realness of this novel. I felt as if she was sitting down and having lunch with me and giving me all this great advice based on her past experiences and heartaches.
You have to be happy with you, before you can make someone else happy. When I reflect on this quote, I realize that I too have some self esteem issues and I tend to be a people pleaser.
I want to make everyone else happy and sometimes I forget about little old me. I learned so much from this book and I really gained a lot of insight and helpful advice to use as I'm going through this downtime.
I hope that if you need an inspirational lift you will decide to pick this book up. Jennifer Lopez gives great advice: Dec 06, Great Pretender Daria rated it really liked it Shelves: Nov 06, Lilly rated it really liked it Shelves: Yep, I did. When I read a celebrity bio or a celebrity trash bio, as I affecteonality call them , I have strong expectations.
I want the dirt. I was committed for my book cl What? I was committed for my book club to see this through, so I persevered, preparing for great boredom. Instead, I found a rather soulful exploration of the struggle to stay on target with what's right for you when so many things are right for other people.
Who knew that a megastar would be so relatable? It's a very personal, quiet exploration of what happens when you listen to your heart and reconnect with what you love.
She leads by example, and in the process I came to respect an artist Yes, I just called her that - see? I didn't know much about. She offered the glossy photos her fans might expect, but the real value of this book - unlike pretty much every other celeb autobiography ever - is in the words.
Nov 24, Nicole rated it liked it. I was pleasantly surprised after reading this. I'm not really a huge Jennifer Lopez fan and never intended to read this book, but I thumbed through it at the bookstore and it piqued my interest. The book is about her first world tour and how it coincided with her search for happiness and True Love loving herself. She was very introspective and sweet throughout. I enjoyed her honesty about who she is as a woman, mother, ex wife and girlfriend.
This isn't a tell all book about her past loves bu I was pleasantly surprised after reading this. This isn't a tell all book about her past loves but she does mention them and does divulge more than I expected about her marriage and life with Marc Anthony. She also includes a ton of pictures of herself, the tour and her family. It was a very easy and fast read.
Recommended to J. Lo fans, Latinas and women going through a tough time in their relationship.
Oct 29, Joseph De La Cruz rated it it was amazing. As a fan ever since "Selena," which came out when I was five, I grew up with Jennifer in my life. As I grew and listened to her records and saw her movies, I considered her a role model. With her albums, I realized that she's the same type of lover that I am. This book is about the time after her divorice and how she had to pick herself up. With this book, I saw a side to Jennifer I never saw her.
To me, she was always the actress, Selena, the singer, flawless. But in this book, I saw her as a h As a fan ever since "Selena," which came out when I was five, I grew up with Jennifer in my life. But in this book, I saw her as a human. And the same type of lover that I am with my relationships.
Her lyrics mentioned in this book shed some much needed perspective and I had some eye-opening moments related to my life. This book, without meaning to, taught me things I needed to learn and wrap my head around. I loved reading this book and I'm thankful for this book. Thank you and love you, Jenny. Dec 25, Olga Inozemtseva rated it it was amazing.
A truly inspiring story. Reading this book has been an amazing journey for me and I am definitely recommending it to anyone who enjoys inspirational books.
It's about learning to love yourself and always remembering who you really are, a very simple yet a very powerful message in my opinion. The book is very easy to read and is well illustrated.
You don't have to be a Jennifer Lopez fan to enjoy reading this book. It's just a good story about someone rediscovering their identity and the meaning A truly inspiring story. It's just a good story about someone rediscovering their identity and the meaning of true love.
If you're not sure whether or not you'll like this book, just give it a try and decide for yourself. Apr 24, Jenb16 rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this book! I listened to the audiobook, which I tend to enjoy for autobiographies because I feel like the author is having a conversation with the reader. Audiobooks are good for long drives to and from work and make the traffic feel a little less painful.
I liked listening to Jennifer's story and her struggles in relationships and rediscovery of true, self love. I found myself interested in what she had to say and could relate to a lot of the sentiments in her book.
I would rec I really enjoyed this book! I would recommend this to someone who enjoys autobiographies and wants a light and quick read. Jul 19, Nadia Leona Yunis rated it it was amazing.
A MUST read ladies!
It's amazing how each book we read also helps us heal some area of our life - this book has done exactly that and I'm grateful for the lessons learnt - understanding my own patterns and how to break free from them and heal myself and mostly amate - love yourself!
Dec 02, Winter Sophia Rose rated it it was amazing. A Beautiful Read! Jan 19, Courtney rated it really liked it. Jan 12, Kya Publishing Toronto rated it liked it. I was expecting a celebrity tell-all book about fleeing nightclubs with P. Diddy, romantic getaways with Ben Affleck, dancing the night away with Casper, or other inside-Hollywood tidbits, but True Love by Jennifer Lopez was surprisingly very different.
It was a simple look at a woman, going through life, figuring out love, and learning how to love herself. And even having mentioned her regular lifestyle, which by nature is glamourous, there was little glamour and glitz in this book.
I've always liked J. She seems personable, she is definitely multi-talented, and for years she has managed to maintain a clean reputation and keep it classy What's not to love?! So this book was surprising in that it showed readers a dark side to Jennifer, a side filled with sadness, insecurity, and confusion at times. A side of her filled with self-doubt and longingness We may not all be familiar with having access to fame, millions of dollars, and prime-time television shows and blockbuster movies This book was an easy read.
So easy, that I was shocked with how quickly it took me to get through the pages. An easy read, but an interesting one. And it read like a Jennifer Lopez story, and not something penned by a ghost-writer or "as told to" literary genius.
It read like a girl friend speaking to another girl friend or family member about her experiences, with warm words of encouragement, and kind recommendations for improved living. Basically, this book chronicles the period of time when Jennifer was going through her divorce from singer Marc Anthony, but also while she was going through a great period in her career, hit songs and a classic time in American Idol history. It takes you through her emotional journey, through the support she received from family and friends, the advice and guidance she sought, and eventually the strength she gained and how she applied the various insights she encountered.
I really enjoyed it. Partially because of shock value at how open and honest Jennifer was about her feelings Who doesn't love a story of love and victory. And this time, the love wasn't tied to another "big name" or celebrity scandal.
The love was for herself, and as corny and cliche as that seems, it reads REALLY beautifully, and it feels great to learn the lessons over again with Jennifer. My favourite line of the book: Lo for opening herself up to her fans and readers this way, and think that alone is a result of the journey she went though.
You can feel her renewed sense of spirit, and the energy and excitement is both contagious and motivating as a reader. Glad I was wrong and stuck with it It had my attention since the first page and kept it.
But, for those who haven't read it but may be thinking about it, don't go into it expecting it to be a tell all about her life, relationships etc. She doesn't give details of all of that What made her think about things differently.. This is maybe the second book that I have picked up by someone that I am not a huge fan of but ended up coming out with a new outlook about that person don't remember the first person right now It's not that I totally dislike her, because I don't, I can just say I am not a fan of her music..
And I've enjoyed the movies I've watched with her in it.. So, if I were a fan of anything she does, it would be her movies! But I can say I was happy for her when she got married to Marc and had her babies.. I remember wanting that relationship between them to work for her and for things to be easier and smoother for her in the relationship area.. Edited Thoughts Once I Finished: It wasn't a coincidence.
I believe this came to me because I needed it right here right now in my life. I knew it was time for things to change in my life but didn't know how to do it; many times, I still don't and I am 40 years old as of this post.
It made me realize even more that although I do like myself, I don't really and truly love myself the way I should. If I did, there would be a lot of things I wouldn't tolerate, do or put myself through. She gave me a new hope in this book to make the changes in my life that I need to make, even when it's the most difficult.
This book was really and truly a confirmation for me that I am on the right path.
I see the changes I have made in my life, but sometimes, I'd still beat myself up because I feel like I should be further along, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, etc. And she confirmed that for me as well. This book is still really raw in me right now and I'm not quite sure what's going to happen, how my life is going to change or what path my life is going to go on but I know that I have to do my best in that moment to push through what I'm going through and try to learn from it!
I said I didn't have much to add to it didn't I?!?! But, if you read all of this, I thank you for taking time to do so! Oct 26, Rosie rated it really liked it. I enjoyed reading True Love by Jennifer Lopez. These can be found on the internet but seeing it in a book together with her perspective really brings the story home for the reader to enjoy. Glad she looks happy. This book also reminded me to re-read Louise Hay's books.
