Amanda’s Reads: week of May 28, 2024

Yay! I finished one!


The Sell by Fredrik Eklund
Mostly loved this book. If you’re in sales in any form, check it out.

Currently Reading

Over halfway through and still don’t know what happened to the missing character (the “news” says he’s dead, but we know that’s not true.) My patience is wearing thin…

Country Roads: A Thriller (The Relic Runner Book 3) by Ernest Dempsey
I’ve been having trouble focusing lately, yet Dak seems to hold me for a few minutes. I can say this book is rivaling for a favorite Dak book.

Love Life by Matthew Hussey
After my last marriage, I needed something to teach me about dating and men because it’s all so much different than it used to be. People aren’t forthcoming anymore, they hide things out of fear or jealousy, or worse. I found Matt on YouTube and even have a few of his courses.

Since I was laid off, I lost a lot of confidence again, and I want that back, but more. I want a lot of things back, to be honest, though mostly in different and better ways. Matt’s voice has been a guiding light in the dark for me, so you best believe I’ll devour this book and put things into practice. Even if that means just getting all of me back.

The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemmingway
Still too afraid to touch it 😂

Currently Listening

Monster Hunter Alpha by Larry Correia
4 hours left, though I hope by the time this post goes live, I’ll be finished. Or at the very least, I”ll be down to 2 hours left 😂

It’s funny when you like certain characters so much that you feel bad when they lose a part of themselves and become human again…

Fear by Thích Nhất Hạnh
The first two sentences of the description read: Without fear, we are able to see more clearly our connections to others. Without fear, we have more room for understanding and compassion….  I know I have a lot of fears that hold me back, too. This was also recommended by a former friend – one who had been going through the exact same type of marriage I had walked away from. Even our divorces were the same. He and I were experiencing a lot of things together, we had each other to lean on. Shame we’re not still friends, but things happen. Regardless, I’m excited to listen to this one and maybe finally learn how to calm some more fears.

I swapped Dr. Tracy for this one. I’ll pick it back up at a later date because I love what she has to say.

Also, I picked up Fierce Self-Compassion on audio since I had such a hard time getting through the introduction. It’s on deck for a next listen, for sure.
