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!

Make Me Read It Read-a-Thon!

So on Goodreads, I have seen all of these people asking what they should read for "Make Me Read It." Naturally, I was intrigued, but wasn't finding any info on it on Goodreads. Thank god for Google! It led me to The Innocent Smiley, a blog run by Val, who partners with Ely (Tea & Titles) who started the read-a-thon last year and decided to do it again this year.



How It Works
Look at the books you own, either physical, e-book, or ones you've borrowed from the library and pick out a few you really want to read, or feel like you should read. It's up to you how many you pick.
Make a list of these books and then have friends, family, and other bibliophiles pick which ones you HAVE to read. Use the tag #MakeMeRead on social media!
The books with the most votes is read first, the book with the second most votes is read next, etc. If there is a tie between books, it's your personal preference of which you read first.

When Does it Take Place?

Modern Lovers by Emma Straub

Modern Lovers was the first book I received from my Book of the Month Club. I was so excited when I saw that it was one of the books for this month, because I had hoped it would have been selected for another book club I am a part of, but it wasn't. The cover intrigued me, the way Morgan Jerkins described it sold me, I knew I needed to read this book. However, upon finishing the book, I feel like I have been let down. I feel like there was so many places this book could have gone, and yet, I felt like I was reading a story about what could have been anybodies life.

The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace

Oh my goodness! I am not one who reads a lot of poetry; yes, I have a few favorite poems, but it's not what I usually spend my time reading. I don't remember where I heard about this book. It might have been an article or a friend read it, but it somehow made it's way onto my To Be Read list, and when I was looking through it the other day, I saw it and decided I would buy it, but didn't have any intention to read it right away because right now, my currently reading stack is getting a bit ridiculous. But last night, I didn't feel like reading any of my current books, so I picked it up and I was in love.


Why This Book is Amazing

Because this book is poetry, I can't use my usual format with other reviews. But with this book, I'm okay with that because it fits the theme of the book.
The Princess Saves Herself in This One is told in 4 parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, and you. Each part represents a piece of Amanda Lovelace's life and the things th…
