Book Review: The Art Of Making Memories

While searching the shelves at the library, I came across The Art of Making Memories by Meik Wiking and was immediately intrigued. I don’t attach memories to objects so recalling happy moments from my past occur through sights, sounds, tastes, smells, and touch. The book incorporated various studies and experiences to show that memories are most vivid when we are fully present and actively using all of our senses. I found the book to be an interesting and enjoyable read.


  • Humor is laced throughout the book and made me giggle out loud on a few occasions.
  • The ideas are presented in short sections and are broken up by happy memory tips, which made for a quick, easy read.
  • Techniques are included to help the reader create happy memories as well as recall happy memories from the past.
  • Happy memories are shared by people from all over the world. Each one is relatable and helps remind us how as people, despite our differences, are in some ways all the same.

Did you read The Art of Making Memories? What did you think?

    1. I pretty much only read nonfiction books but I don’t care for books with just a bunch of facts listed out that are not easy to read. This author did a great job of making it feel like you were having a conversation with him.

      I hope you can find this book and I hope it makes you giggle as well.😁

  1. I haven’t read this book but it does sound interesting. I’m getting to the point where I don’t want to read any more “make the most of your life, simplify your life, live your best life” type of books because they all seem to be the same. I read them and say “well duh that’s just common sense”. LOL This one sounds interesting because it takes a humourus approach. I’ll have to see if they have it at the library.
