What can I say about this book? It definitely gave me whiplash on how many twists and turns this story has.

Synopsis for Blue: A Savages in Ruin

A Reclusive rock star. Notorious bad boy. Heir to a legacy.

They say a single moment can chance the course of your life.

Mine wasn’t a moment, but a man.

We were wrong for each other in every way, yet it didn’t stop me from wanting him. The broody, arrogant rock star on the verge of self-destruction. His touch was electric, his wounded gaze burning me from the inside out.

He was perfectly imperfect.

Irresistibly tortured.

Utterly broken. Almost as broken as me.

Our jagged edges aligned so seamlessly even I believed we might have healed each other.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

*The is book one in the STAND ALONG Savages in Ruin rock star romance series

Blue . . . Blue . . . Blue. He was a hot mess. He meets Willow in the middle of the street, and decides he wants to help her, so he brings her home. He is instantly attracted to her, but his inner demons is keeping him away.

Willow, who only remembers bits and pieces of her past, is like a breath of fresh air compared to Blue. She wants to be with Blue, fix him, and save him.

Blue will definitely keep you wanting more. The book is a page turner, and have you at the edge of your seat. The moment you think the plot has twisted, you are wrong. There are so many plot twists that it has your head spinning, and wonder . . . Welp, what else is going to happen?

Jane Anthony did a more than wonderful job at writing this epic star-crossed romance. The way it was written, the plot twists, the feeling, the way this swoon-worthy story overall way genius.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k by Mark Manson (This post contains profanity)

I was laying in bed one day, and a tweet from one of my favorite performers Aurelio Voltaire posted a picture of himself reading The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k. As dealing with the same issues as him, I bought the book with no hesitation. And I don’t regret it.

Synopsis

For decades we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. But those days are over. “F**k positivity,” Mark Manson says. “Let’s be honest; sometimes things are f**cked up and we have to live with it.” For the past few years, Manson – is his wildly popular blog – has been working on correcting our delusional expectations for ourselves and for the world. He now brings his hard-fought wisdom to this groundbreaking book.

Manson makes the argument – backed by both academic research and well-timed poop jokes – that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to better stomach lemons. Human beings are flawed and limited – as he writes, “Not everybody can be extraordinary – there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault.” Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. This, he says, is the real source of empowerment. Once we embrace our fears, faults, ad uncertainties – once we stop running from and avoiding, and start confronting painful truths – we begin to find the courage and confidence we desperately seek.

“In life, we have a limited amount of f**ks to give. So you must choose your f**ks wisely.” Manson brings a much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor. This manifesto is a refreshing slap in the face for all of us so that we can start to lead more contented, grounded lives.

As a part of the millions of people who suffer from anxiety and depression, I recommend this book. I must warn you, the title of the book is definitely a sample of what is in the book. The synopsis did not lie lol. Throughout the book, I kept questioning why. Why would you do this? Why would you do that? Why would you say this or that? Until I read the last chapter, then it tied it all in.

Life is too short. Be honest with yourself and others. Take responsibility of your actions, do not blame them on others. The way you view the world is the way you view yourself. If you deny yourself the truth of what is outside, you are depriving yourself of what is inside.

I give the book 5 stars for how honest the author was, and how it taught me to open my eyes to not only the world, but to myself.
