Why I Haven’t Finished These Series?

Book series and I have a very weird relationship. I can sometimes read a book completely out of sync and then get confused when something that happened in the second book is continued and developed in book three. Or, I start a series and then just abandon it for no reson. Often, I go back to a series I’ve left to the side after a couple of months reading something else.

Tag Thursday: Would You Rather – Bookish Edition

I (accidentally) gave Tag Thursday a break in September.

Changing how you think is possible. I wasn’t always so sure that was true until I experienced it myself, but I know now we don’t have to just accept unhappiness. Not always anyway. This book is my collection of tips and suggestions that have helped me achieve happier thinking. It’s sort of a gym for my mind. I’d love to tell you it was easier than the real gym but well… it’s not really. It takes time, effort, and practice but it’s absolutely well worth the rewards.
