at least 2 problems with this
21 Rituals to change your life - Theresa Cheung

Now from a lot of the books I've read recently on improving my life, I've noticed that they suggest trying one new thing at a time.  Theresa Cheung suggests doing all 21 of these at a time.  And if you fail to do them for the 21 days straight you have to start again.  I believe this is what is called setting someone up to fail.

 

Secondly; getting out of bed earlier isn't a ritual, nor is taking a selfie to me a ritual.  These are just two of the HABITS she suggests trying, some are a bit more ritualistic but to me a ritual style bath, for example, involves laying out the soft robes for afterwards, selecting a candle and bath smells, picking the book(s) and drink and music and turning off notifications before slipping into the warm water and r e l a x. That's more of a ritual and what I kinda expected out of this book.  How to make the experiences of your life more special.

 

I also spotted that one of the cititations was from the Daily Fail.  Really?

 

It might suit someone looking to inject a little something more into their lives but, and it's a big but, I would do a few at a time, they're split into morning, evening and night and I'd pick one from each to try for 21 days and then maybe add more, but it's very prescriptive and not everyone functions the same.  We are not all interchangeable and ritual should exhalt that not swallow it.

Ouroboros Symbolism and its Spiritual Meanings

 are the language of the Symbols can not be mentally comprehended.
To understand the power of symbols, we have to dig into an ancient wisdom of our myths and legends and try to comprehend the knowledge we receive from the sacred art.

Defining an Ouroboros as an ancient symbol of eternity, means nothing. It is like trying to connect any of the symbols to , Tao, un-explainable, un-measurable Life Force.

A Very Satisfying Conclusion
Rituals: The Cainsville Series - Kelley Armstrong

So first of all, it's hard to give this book the review it deserves since it's the fifth and final one in the series and doing so would give all kinds of spoiler away. That being said, I looked back at all my ratings and each book has garnered at least 4/5 stars with the last two capturing a complete 5/5 from me. I think that shows what a strong series this has been for me and how much I have loved it. And while I am sad to see it over, man, what a ride.

I'm not going to mention the plot, but will go as far as saying that this installment introduces us to some pretty awful characters (some we thought were dead) some terribly horrible supernatural creatures (the sluagh) and tow Dryads who add comic relief in a book where you wouldn't expect it. In fact, Helia and Alexios are such a great addition to this tale and I truly enjoyed every scene they were in. Finally, I have to address the love triangle. There is a strong one in this book but because it has been woven so delicately into the Fae folklore and prophecy, it was not annoying or overwhelming. In fact, it is very well developed and there is absolutely no insta-love. And I waited 5 long books to find out how this element played out and can I say I'm thrilled with the conclusion. In fact, I'm so happy with Liv's decision, I may have jumped up and down. Also, I love that fact that Armstrong doesn't wait until the very end to disclose this wrap-up and that once its is disclosed, it continues to be worked into the plot.

So if you can't tell, I would highly recommend the Cainsville series. I've read the entire Women of the Underworld series (minus a few short story/novella collections) and while I loved it as well, Cainsville clearly outdid it. Plus, there's an adorable Fae Hound in this book who I dearly love.

Last Rituals - Yrsa Sigurðardóttir,Bernard Scudder

I found the story intriguing all through and really liked Thora and the way she dealt with life in general. It ended a bit too randomly though and I wasn't sure how I felt about her relationship with Matthew. A good read overall.
