    I'm still reading the one I download before. It's all about vampires and such. Ever heard of "Vassalord"? That's what I am reading.

    I'm currently reading "The Blood Red Path" by Whiskeyqueenn on Wattpad. It is a sequel of her book "Odin's Prize". I definitely recommend this book to werewolf fans who wants a new perspective of the genre. It's not just about mates and possessive alpha, it's more on raw emotions and traditions. I want to say more but I'm afraid I might spoil you so you just have to read it yourself. I promise, it's a good read.

    90 Minutes in Heaven. I know this book is already how many years old and was made into a film a few years ago, but I just came across the book recently while browsing through a Book Sale store which sells second-hand books or old stock. It's about a pastor's encounter with heaven as he lay pinned down in his totally wrecked car which had collided on a bridge with a huge truck while first responders waited for the help they needed to pry open the wreck to get him out. It's about the pain he went through especially with his severed limbs as he was confined to the hospital for recovery and healing, the pain his family also went through, his friends and fellow church members. He was only able to tell his wife about his experience in Heaven some months after he had gotten discharged and continued hospice care at home, and she then encouraged him to share his story and experience with his close friend first, then their church and then with the world. His encounter with heaven was so beautiful, it gives me much comfort and peace knowing that with great faith heaven is real and magnificent.

    I am re-reading "Seriosly, I'm Kidding" by Ellen Degeneres. Her anecdotes are pretty amazing and funny. If you want to de-stress? Read her books and you'll surely be entertained.

    I'm currently reading Rich Dad Poor Dad, this is my 6th time reading this book. I started reading it when I was in high school, it definitely changed my way of thinking, it changed my mindset and expanded it to a whole new level. Wealth and Success starts from the renewal of the mind, This is one book I recommend to everyone who is looking for change in their financial status, change in mind set and wants total change in their lives.

    Revenent Gun by Yoon Ha Lee. It’s the conclusion of the Machineries of Empire trilogy started with Ninefox Gambit and Raven Stratagem. It’s Asian flavoured space opera similar to the style of Aliette de Bodard.

    I'm currently reading two books, but I've put the other on hold just to finish reading this book called Heartless by Marissa Meyer. It tells the origin story of none other than the Queen of Hearts in the classic fairytale, Alice in Wonderland. So far, I think that story has a great pacing and I can't wait to read more!

    I'm reading a book called "The Only Rule Is It Has to Work: Our Wild Experiment Building a New Kind of Baseball Team" by Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller. The authors were invited to manage a minor league baseball team, the Sonoma Stompers, for a season. They have some experience with baseball analytics and want to run the team in a Moneyball way. I don't really know how well they succeed with that goal, since so far it seems like a hit-and-miss effort for them, and I've read like two thirds of the book already. It's an interesting read though, even though I maybe was expecting them to focus much more on that analytics side.

    A Little Princess. It's a book I always used to love as a kid for some reason, and I ended up thinking about it one day and decided to hunt it down and reread it as an adult.

    I am reading The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth by John C. Maxwell, and just finished chapter 3. It's all about personal development and growing to your fullest potential. This isn't just an easy-breezy read. John has assignments for us at the end of each chapter so that we really dive deep into our growth, learning ourselves, and create good lifelong habits.

    Yep, all check. Also, this is your 6th time reading, meaning to me that the wording and storytelling must be good as well. Anyways, thanks for the recommendation!

    Right now, i am reading The Last Secret, a profound reflexion by José Rodrigues dos Santos about what scould actually be true or questionable about The Bible stories. The conclusion i get from it, is that no one can prove The Bible wrong, showing Jesus as Josef's son, a normal man with a huge fate.

    Pardon my expletive but I'm currently reading "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck", and "A Mind for Numbers".
    The first book has to do about how to live a more relaxed life, and how to have a laid back attitude. At the beginning, as the author will mention, he doesn't mean not giving a f*ck about anything, but more importantly it's about choosing carefully what to give a f*ck about, so contrary to a seemingly nihilistic title of the book, it's full of positive attitude to things in life, and it teaches to you to be more mindful about caring about things that matter and that you should care about, "care about things worth caring for".

    A Mind For Numbers is a similar book in a way, funnily enough, it teaches to how to learn, its motto of sorts is "learning how to learn", and that's exactly it. It goes in-depth about human psychology and psycho-physiology about the ways out mind works and how it works, how it remembers, and how it primes itself to soak new knowledge which you might wish to make use of.
    In almost every chapter it will give you some famous examples about known people who used certain "tricks" and tactics to "seize" the day, to reach their potential and come up with new inventions.
    Like its subtitle says, "How to Excel at Math and Science (Even If You Flunked Algebra)", that's exactly where the book can and will lead you, to explore and learn in the most interesting of ways, but more importantly to become able to retrieve that knowledge back when you need it.

    I've actually been reading "The Art of Profiling" by Dan Korem. It's an okay read, that can shed some insight on how to better read people.

    Surprisingly I've found very little information and reviews for it online; and I picked it up at my local library because I wanted to know how to approach others better/more appropriately, and this seemed to fit the bill.

    It's rather descriptive though; and might not be for everyone, especially since some parts of the book seem to sell Korem's other products/books.

    Overall, 8/10 read for me.

    I'm reading 'In Order To Live' by Yeonmi Park. It is based on the true story of her escape from North Korea and the atrocities she experienced and witnessed. It provides some in depth detail into what it's like to live there and it is beyond shocking. She also talks about her perspective of the world which is obviously skewed by what she's been brought up to believe in such a deprived country. I highly recommend it.

    I'm reading, Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Koyasaki. It was a mind blowing book. An eye opener to readers on how to become aware of how many works for us not us working for money. It is a very good book and on how it was narrate and even the idea that financial literacy should be taught as early as possible. The more aware we are how money should work among us, the better and productive future we may have. Superb book.
