It might be the week of Valentine's Day - and my due date, oh crap - but that doesn't mean it all has to be lovey-dovey! Sure, there are some romantic relationships that turn me to mush just thinking about them but.. there are also other couples - platonic couples - that make my heart beat faster. Makes sense that I'm simply using both of those to create this post, right?!
I usually don't read non-fiction at all, but once in a while you stumble upon a book that sounds too interesting not to give it a shot. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is one of those books. I have to admit: At first, I wasn't all to sure about reviewing this book because the things you pick up, the things you learn and want to put to use are personal and will differ for every single person reading the book. In the end, though, I wanted to share and maybe convince others to read it as well.
If you don't know by now, you must have been living underneath a rock, or simply haven't stumbled upon my blog before today. 2019 is a year of huge changes for me and, that means, for my blog as well. I thought it was time to talk about it some more, to share my expectations and the things I want to accomplish - or try to accomplish while my life is being turned upside down.
I don't usually watch movies before having read the book, but this one was different. Trying to resist a cozy, fluffy movie-mood is a hard thing to do sometimes and with so many people raving about the movie, I succumbed. Then I ended up desperately wanting the books, bought them eventually and was so, so lucky to pull the first one from my January Jam Jar!
I'm still here! So, time for my weekly reading update - although who knows whether it'll be my last one for a while or not. Time will tell, haha! In any case - I finished one of my most anticipated releases this week so..
Don't we all do it? Add books to our "want to read" on Goodreads like a lunatic the moment we see one or two words that convince us it'll be the next best thing? Then we look back after a while and wonder whether it was the right call to make. Maybe we shouldn't have added them that quickly? Maybe we should've read some more reviews? Maybe, just maybe we're a bit too impulsive when it comes to buying books?
I've been sitting on this review for a long, long time now. I read The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things back in December and just.. couldn't find a good way to write this review in a way I was comfortable with? I'm hoping I did a good job on this because skies, this is a hard one..
