    ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

    a married couple move their family to his sisters house. His sister committed suicide and he gets the house and his niece. There's a murder that occurs and the wife is positive someone in their house committed the murder. She is right but not who you think. Good book.

  • Invisible women : data bias in a world designed… by Criado-Perez, Caroline,
    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Gender bias is so intrinsically woven into modern society it gets overlooked and thus becomes a non-discussion point. Consider reading this book which covers wage bias, and also more subtle vexing things.

    This is essentially a collection of statistics which entail how systems made by men and for men are minimizing and marginalizing the other 50% of the population. It does this by breaking the statistics down into chapter-spanning categories and creating a cohesive narrative to explain how all of these events are related and come back to the same basic problem.

    It might not be uplifting to read all these statistics and honestly for eachone mentioned there are probably many others which will occur to you from life. Take for example mammograms. Women get mammograms as necessary, however the mamogram machine was designed by a man and literally is very humiliating and debasing as far as squeeze machine technology goes (who knows what the future will hold) but what if the screening proceedure had been developed by a female not a male physician (?)

    Women shouldn't be living lives weighed against an un-fair standard and only by getting both genders to read up on and begin discussing solutions to the inequality will things change for the better. Check it out!

  • Perfect health : the complete mind body guide by Chopra, Deepak.
    ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    This is my first time reading a Deepak Chopra book and I highly recommend it! Here is an opportunity to learn the basics of Ayurvedic thinking including the doshas, sub-doshas, and chalkras as they relate to five elements. I have always been a believer in 5elements but never quite understood indian quantum healing and what the take-aways are for modern living. I struggle with Vata imbalance and thrive on workaholism, granola bars, caffeine, and adrenaline. Adding sesame seeds to your salad, eating sprouts, massaging your skin, giving yourself hugs, and going multiple days in a row without coffee to break the addiction cycle when you are already following a strict 'diet' (atkins, keto, weight watchers) and being told to meditate and go on walks is going to sound super low key but all healthy choices are cumulative and it's not to late to cultivate that lifestyle for yourself. The solutions feel low key and you are not told exactly what to eat. If you are oppositional to raw foods, veganism, and kombucca I would say stick it out. No Karma Police officer is going to knock on your door when you cave and eat fried chicken, but it might help you squeeze more raw foods into your diet to give it a try while you read this book. Try it and see if you feel any difference. Namaste.
