Books & Oils

Anyone who knows me knows that I love my essential oils. I use oils multiple times a day for multiple different reasons. I've been oily a little over a year since I started using Young Living essential oils.

So it goes to figure that my love of oils has blended with my love of reading, and there are definite oils that helps with different problems every bibliophile has come across.

-Release: Every now and then, there is a book that makes you cry uncontrollably, or seriously mad or upset; books where there is a build up of emotions and you just can't move past it. Enter Release. It helps you let go of the negative emotions that the book has brought about and promote harmony, so you can move on to the next book in a happy, positive vibe.

-Fun Inspired by Oola: So anyone who hasn't heard of Oola should click that link and go learn about the Oola Seeker and the Oola Guru and learn how to make your life Oola. They have worked together with YL to create oils to help build the 7 F's in your life. One of the F's is Fun. Reading is Fun. See where I'm going with this. Add a little Fun to your wrists or diffuser and jump into your book and make reading extra fun!

-Sensation: This is the oil to use when you're reading Fifty Shades of Grey type books. It's a very floral, romantic blend that "enhances special moment" if ya catch my drift.  Read and enjoy. *Bonus: YL also makes it into a massage oil, bath gel, and lotion!!

-En-R-Gee: This is the oil to use when you're up late reading and need a little pick-me-up so you can push through and finish your page turner tonight. The scent is revitalizing and stimulating and does just as the name suggests-gives you a boost of energy!

-Stress Away: Some books are pretty damn stressful. The 5th Wave had me second guessing everyone, including myself; I was constantly on the edge of my seat and couldn't read fast enough. Stress Away helps bring you back down to calm so you can continue reading without pulling your hair out.

-Joy: Just like, Fun, this is a great oil to put on before every reading session. It's floral and comforting and inspires, well, joy! Put some over your heart and dive into your book.

So there you go folks! Six oils to use to get you through all your reading woes!

You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero

I was really excited for this book. I have the day-by-day calendar and I love it. It's posts are quick and witty and there's a bonus on the back of every day that tells you something interesting, or is a little puzzle, or something to get you thinking. It's great. The book version was...a let down, for a few reasons.


How Not To
So yeah, I get how repetition is good in a self help book, but this was a bit too much. If I never hear any of these phrases again, it'll be too soon: subconscious mind, conscious mind, love yourself, change your thinking, become aware. Almost every chapter contains a list of what you're supposed to do to realize that you are a badass, and every list contains all of those in some form or another. By about chapter 6, I got it.There are a lot of "I" statements, and not the kind that instruct you to change how you structure your thoughts (those are there, too, just not as much). You Are a Badass is an autobiography of Jen Sincero's

Black Obsidian by Victoria Quinn

When I first started this review, I wasn't really sure what I was going to write, but then as I started thinking about it, I really did not like the book. This is why:

It's your typical toned down erotica novel; it's a carbon copy of Fifty Shades, just with different names. I feel like it started out strong, but once Calloway starts falling for this girl who "won't understand his lifestyle," it went downhill fast.I am so sick of rich men using their means to track down this one girl. It's creepy. If some man did that to me, I'd be filing a restraining order, not crawling into bed with him.I am also sick of the man trying to control every aspect of the woman's life before they have signed a contract. Calloway, you are Rome's boyfriend, not her Dom; you can't buy her a house because her apartment was broken into. Again, restraining order, not bed. And even when there's a contract between a Dom and a sub, there are soft and hard limits, a…

Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough

I received Behind Her Eyes from Book of the Month a few months ago, and after finishing Night Film, another psychological thriller, I was ready for this one. I love the entire book-the characters, the plot, the authors writing style. And then I read the last three chapters and my love for the book deflated. I have never been so let down by an ending in my entire life. It's funny how just a few pages can ruin an entire book for you.

Behind Her Eyes follows Louise, a single mother who is stuck in a rut, and Adele, the new girl in town who seems to have her shit together. And of course there is a man. David met Louise in a bar one night and they shared an amazing kiss. David is married to Adele. Oh, and when Louise goes to work on Monday, she finds out that David is her new boss. Nothing awkward about that. It gets worse when Adele bumps into Louise and invites her to coffee and they become friends. But Adele makes Louise promise that she won't tell David about their friendship b…
