I finally finished Crazy, Stupid Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams. It was just as good as the first 2 books! This one was about the love story between Noah and Alexis.
Lyssa writes with such voice in her books; it’s hard not to visualize everything as a movie while you’re reading it. Seriously, from the posture of a person, to the small details of what was in their hand, she nails it all. Narrating the book from an omniscient point of view is genius, and I loved that about the first 2 books.
The book is a mixture of good storyline, action, drama, romance, and comedy. It was really, really hard to put it down after getting about 100 pages in. Not that the first few pages weren’t great, it was just damn near impossible at that point after to stop. I mean, I was taking the book with me to the restroom instead of my cell phone!
The way Lyssa develops each character is both witty and insightful. You connect with the characters through every book, building a deeper longing for them to get a win and learn something from their journeys. This book was nothing short of awesome, and I’d be happy to read it again. I’m looking forward to the fourth book, Isn’t It Bromantic!
So I’m currently listening to an Audible book called The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. It may seem like a “self help lah dee dah” book to some of you, but I’m really diggin it!
Here’s the synopsis/blurb about the book:
To make the journey into the Now we will need to leave our analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. From the very first page of Eckhart Tolle’s extraordinary book, we move rapidly into a significantly higher altitude where we breathe a lighter air. We become connected to the indestructible essence of our Being, “The eternal, ever present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death.” Although the journey is challenging, Eckhart Tolle uses simple language and an easy question and answer format to guide us. A word of mouth phenomenon since its first publication, The Power of Now is one of those rare books with the power to create an experience in readers, one that can radically change their lives for the better.
I appreciate how simple it is to understand what he’s saying, he gives some really good explanations and anecdotes. He just talked about a cool experiment to try in regards to presence, and I wanted to share it.
Close your eyes and say to yourself “I wonder what my next thought is going to be”. Then become alert and wait for the next thought like a cat watching a mouse hole wondering what thought will come out of the mouse hole.
Did it take you some time before a new thought came to mind? It did for me! I love stuff like this, can’t wait to finish the book. Let me know if you happen to have read it before or plan to! #virtualbookclub lol
Currently reading the top book, Year One. Hopefully I’ll knock that out by the weekend to start a new one! Loved Ishmael but want to reread it!
Picked up these puppies on my lunch break with some coworkers. Yuhhhh
