Amanda’s Reads: week of April 22, 2024

Finished 2 this week…and 1 DNF 😱


Double Cross by James Patterson
Finally! I thought it would never end. The words out of my mouth as I read the last sentence were something like, “Jesus! And are there really that many murders in DC?” 😂

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
He gives a list of gaslighting phrases and notes to consider the context but goes on to make it sound like these phrases all the time are gaslighting. Those of us who grew up in ages long past, and psychologists, disagree. He goes into detail about a lot of things, but the title is misleading. Sentences like “Resignation to Fate” make me skip the rest of the page.

Dear Writer, Are You Intuitive? by Becca Syme & Susan Bischoff
I swear Becca & Susan wrote this book just for me 🤣 So many flags and notes in margins and highlights…

DNF (Did Not Finish)

How to Train Your Mind by Chris Bailey
Nothing he said was news to me, I chose to remove it and not finish. This makes my 2nd or 3rd DNF EVER. Not cool.
