Willpower (Psychic Crossroads #1) by Anna Durand
Willpower (Psychic Crossroads #1) - Anna Durand
Willpower is the first in a two-part series called Psychic Crossroads. The reason for the name, of both the book and the series, becomes obvious as you read through. Grace is alone in the world, struggling to make ends meet. Her parents died in a car crash a few months earlier, then her grandfather. To top it off, she can't actually remember the past few months, and has serious migraines to contend with, that no doctor seems to have the answer for. Her life takes a strange turn one evening when she is approached by a 'madman' who warns her that "they are looking for you". This opens a can of worms that she wasn't expecting in the slightest.
 
I would say that Willpower is definitely more of a thriller than romance, so if that's what you're looking for, you're out of luck. Also, it is a slow-burner so don't expect instantaneous answers. There are lots of different situations and characters to contend with, which can get a bit confusing and skippy at times. This is a good story which comes to a natural ending, whilst still leading on to book two.

Reading progress update: I've read 62%.
Soulless - T. Baggins

It started well but I didn't check the blurb, and now all I have to say is : bummer! One of my least favorite tropes! I really liked it so far though, so I hope that it will counterbalance my pet-peeve.

One of my 2015 resolutions was to read what I already owned and to do serious reading down of the great TBR pile. Then today I was going through my email and found the Amazon gift card my awesome step-sister sent me for Christmas. Needless to say, the resolution was so incredibly broken today; good news, the kids are each getting a new book for bedtime reading and I took care of three wish list books.

 

Tomorrow I am going back to the plan!

Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength
Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength - Roy F. Baumeister,John Tierney “When psychologists isolate the personal qualities that predict positive outcomes in life, they consistently find two traits: intelligence and self-control.” Baumeister and Tierney, coauthors of “Rediscovering The greatest human strength: Willpower” second that.” So far researchers still haven’t learned how to permanently increase intelligence. But they have discovered, or at least rediscovered, how to improve self-control.”


“How one can improve self-control?” Is the question the book has tried to answer. And the answer would be an experimental/scientific one regarding the history of what they come to call it “Self-Regulation”. It couldn’t be a simple/straight one indeed. The book looks just like a perfect report on how to discover “how to improve self-control”. It takes a journey at least. This is the advantage and weakness of the book at the same time. It does coop in the reader – so forgetting it would be hard- and it makes reading the book so boring.
