Got real fucked up, real quick in chapter 35, also listened to while playing Fallout 4 🀣 great story overall, but her writing is terrible.

Had some helpful tidbits, but was overall terrible for someone like me who is a survivor of narcissistic abuse. Might be good for people with no idea what manipulation is?

Double Cross by James Patterson (Alex Cross #13)
By the time I hit page 330 last week, I was begging for it to end. Alas, I got to page 343. I still want it to end. It’s far too long of a thriller book.

Dark Psychology & Manipulation: Decoding Human Behavior: A Beginner’s Guide to Analyzing People and Influencing Them with Body Language, NLP, Gaslighting, and Safeguarding Against Manipulative Tactics by Jordan Maxfield

How to Train Your Mind by Chris Bailey
Nope, haven’t even tried to get further into this yet. Partly because I’m turned off by the Introduction, partly because that Dark Psychology book by Lucas Bailey messed up my flow with how bad it was [for me].
