    Someone suggested I read this here on MFP awhile back. Finally getting to it; I like it so far!

    I liked this one!

    I just finished reading Memorial Drive by Natasha Trethewey. Her writing was waaaay too flowery for me but the book was interesting (and sad, because of the true story of her mother's murder).

    I am really enjoying it so far! It's so interesting how he just wandered off without any real explanation or plan and survived for as long as he did!

    March to the Stars Weber/Ringo

    See, I said I'd read through the whole series. Next up is We Few and then I'll likely reread some Jennifer Crusie.

    I just started Untamed by Glennon Doyle and I'm hooked.

    Before this one, I read Firestarter by Stephen King, Comfort and Joy by Kristin Hannah and The Things We Do For Love by Kristin Hannah, and last one I finished was Invisible Girl by Lisa Jewel.

    The Stranger in the Woods sounds really good.

    Untamed and Invisible Girl have been two of my favorites this year. Nice!

    I was pleasantly surprised by Stranger in the Woods. He (the subject of the book) is a pretty interesting person, considering he was alone in the woods for 25+ years in Maine.

    Unfortunately, I have to return Untamed to my sister as it's borrowed, but it's one of those books you need to read more than once and keep on the shelf for reconnecting with it. It's so good and insightful! I'm thinking of buying copies for both my dds.

    Saved it to my amazon wish list. I'm weird but one of my secret fantasies has always been to run away from it all and finish out my days as a hermit. :)

    I'm adding side by side English version and the one I have in my language. :)

    I'm reading this French classic. It's about love, marriage, jealousy, obssesiveness. It explains the states of love and the changing in the human being from relationship to relationship.

    There are so many quotes that I liked in this book and this is one of them.
    “We are almost always the craftsman of our own unhappiness.”

    This is an understandable sentiment, however, it is nearly impossible to do. Most reclusive people opt to have supplies shipped to them or make a trip say.. once a month or so for goods. Knight (the person in the story), lived alone in the woods for 27 years, but did so by stealing from the plethora of cabins in the area (seasonal residents) and the camp down the road from his own campsite. He would not have survived otherwise.

    It is still really interesting what he did with the waste, how he recycled empty containers for other purposes in his camp, etc. Very survivalist mentality. Hopefully, you'll enjoy the read!

    I'm not that far in yet, but Dweck is a positive psychology researcher who explores fixed mindsets vs. growth mindsets.
    I'm going down the rabbit hole with positive psychology.
    This will be my 5th book on the subject this year. The others include:

    Happiness by Ed Deiner
    Flourish by Martin Seligman
    What you can change and what you can't by Martin Seligman
    The How of Happiness by Sonia Lyubomirsky
