The Fastest Way to Fall by Denise Williams

β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Finally finished this read. πŸ’œ Swamped with work for weeks now, and I've been so restless and anxious to meet deadlines. I didn't even think I'd have time to open a book anymore, let alone finish one. But, as always, books have a way of calming the mind--becoming not only a distraction from the… Continue reading The Fastest Way to Fall by Denise Williams

The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari: A Fable About Fulfilling Your Dreams and Reaching Your Destiny by Robin Sharma

β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Let's go over this short, inspiring, and eye-opening piece of literature by Robin Sharma. If you are into non-fiction, self-help books, then you would have heard of The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. It's published in 1999--yes, that's two decades ago--way before the proliferation of the zero-f*cks-mentality kind of self-help literature we know now.… Continue reading The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari: A Fable About Fulfilling Your Dreams and Reaching Your Destiny by Robin Sharma

β˜…β˜…β˜… Christmas is in the air! Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, not because of the sudden abundance of holiday cheer, but because of the weather. Lol, just kidding. Yes, the weather is one of the reasons, but, to be honest, I notice people usually become kinder, more forgiving at this time of the… Continue reading In A Holidaze by Christina Lauren

Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren

β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Christina Lauren did it again. I am floored by this read. I feel stupid for having this book on my TBR list for the longest time, hiding it in my rarely opened ottoman, waiting for the pages to begin tanning, but never really getting the interest to peruse it or start reading its contents.… Continue reading Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren
