Another book recommendation from Amanda Palmer, and it was a solid one. I paused several times to reflect on a line or two and made a few scribbles to return to later. Chapter 11 really complimented Susan Cain's Bittersweet, which I read a couple of months ago.

That‘s pretty much where it‘s at for me.I think many of us give power to dwelling on wrongs of the past, depressing emotions, fear of what might happen , anger at those who we think slighted us in some way. And while I know this intellectually , the key is clearing it out.Enjoyable book made me feel grateful for what I have & helping not to cling to stuff & bad emotions.🖤

This novel went back and forth to me. At times I liked it, but at other times I found myself bored. There were a lot of things and events that were overly predictable, but there were still some surprises along the way. Lynch uses multiple narrators–in fact all six women have a voice along the way–to tell the events leading up to the death as well as the aftermath. I also found the fact that each woman had a secret, making them all viable suspects.

#NovemberNarrative #KindnessDay #Giving Both prompts made me think of the Dalai Lama.
Compassion goes along with those as well.One doesn‘t have to be a Buddhist to get something from his work.He wants us to be better people , we all need some of that.

Pema offers much wisdom and practical guidance with this book. There are several lessons that resonated with me. Pema initially talked about how to awaken compassion with openness and freshness. To continue reading my review, please visit my book blog https://abookandadog.com #MountTBR

📖 Currently reading this lovely book. It‘s enlightening and insightful. You can never go wrong with Thich Nhat Hanh. If you haven‘t read any of his books, I would absolutely recommend.

Also, while it‘s not related at all. Today is day 25 of #100daysofhalloweenhappy with Fav blanket and this is my fav blanket. It‘s very old, but I love it just the same 😂

📖What are you reading?

⭐️3/5
Read it based on a recommendation with little idea on what it was about. I enjoyed the introduction to Buddhist beliefs and found the author presented the ideas in easily graspable ways. Most of the book focuses on being mindful in different senses and how it can positively impact a persons life. Would consider reading more of her work in the future.
