Happy Thursday loves!
Apparently this week is all different post wise! I’ve been on a book shopping spree and I’m loving my recent purchase. I’ve long past the romance fiction reading phase and now I’m into self help books. (*Thats what happens when you turn 30!*) 😛
My recent purchase was: You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero. I really have been enjoying self help books that speak their mind and don’t sugar coat things! I personally love having the idea of having people tell me straight out what’s going on.
I’ve been jumping around the pages finding a feel for the book and I came across: “If you want to live a life you’ve never lived, you have to do things you’ve never done.”
Have you guys read any interesting books lately? I would love to hear it!
Happy Wednesday loves!
I’m giving a sneak peak of one of the books I’ve started reading. I’ve barely started it so give me a week till I can fully review it, but from what I can tell, it seems like a great book!
It’s called “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” by Mark Manson. It’s a counter-intuitive approach to living a good life.
I can’t wait to read it and tell you my review!
Have you read any good books lately?
Happy Saturday loves!
Don’t you hate it when you can’t finish a book you’ve been trying to finish?! Well in this case, I finished it in 2 days! I was lucky enough to get chosen to read and review a book that my fellow blogger wrote. His Endless Love: Unconditional and Everlasting by Samantha Sali. To be honest though, I haven’t read any inspirational books as I used to, but this book made me want to get back into it.
In this book, Samantha talks about finding God’s love throughout her life. Despite everything she went through, she opened her heart and feelings to help other people as well.
What I really liked about this book was that she used her own experiences as well as other people’s experiences and advice. No matter whatever is happening in your life, you still have that one person who loves you and wants to be with you forever. God. If a man who’s daughter was brutally murdered can forgive her murderer, why can’t we do the same?!
I am definitely looking forward reading her next book!
Have you ever read a book that you started reading in public, but later on couldn’t?!
38, 028,000: The number of women who have experienced physical intimate partner violence in their lifetimes.
I was lucky enough to receive a signed copy of She Can Fly, written by Michael G. Gabel and lived by Kerry Keyes.
Picture this: A young girl finding the man of her dreams who sweeps her off her feet and treats her like a princess. But something happens to his personality one day coming home from work. He’s pissed off and does the unthinkable when she asks how his day went. He slaps her as he’s pissed off. He says sorry and that he’ll never do it again but it does happen again and again. Having to make her do things against the law and threatening to take her children away. Then one day she gets caught and goes through so many struggles and when she does get out and lives her life, she goes under a new identity.
The Main Characters:
*Kerry: a bright smart young woman who got caught up with the wrong guy and had to go through so much things to get her where she is now.
*Wayman: a man who seemed like a gentlemen who doesn’t show his true colors until later and is a ruthless man who doesn’t know when to stop.
Mikey: a young boy that Kerry had babysat and she became his best friend. He plays an important role in this book, but you don’t know when! 😉
How many times have you heard about a domestic violence case and it didn’t make sense that the woman stayed in the relationship? This book goes behind the scenes to show you it’s not always easy to get out. There’s so many things we don’t know about domestic violence cases.
