Book Review: THRIVE By Arianna Huffington

Arianna Huffington’s book, Thrive, put things in perspective, as far as how we choose to view success. Understanding sacrifices are part of the path that lead us to the dreams we want to see come into fruition. However it is just as important not to allow your drive to wreak havoc on other crucial and vital areas in your life. Huffington’s Thrive, allows the reader to fully absorb the concept, or rather the message, being relayed. It is essential to live your life in a fulfilling and successfully satisfying way. While many fail to grasp what it really means to be successful in life, due to the various levels of what folks feel defines success, it is possible to live your dreams and achieve them triumphantly, without sacrificing your family, health and well-being.

This is definitely a book I recommend to folks striving to attain and reach their goals and those already there, yet are neglecting other areas in their lives that are just as important and key in the definitive quest in what stipulates success.

Thrive is a bookshelf must.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher.

The book of the month choice for this month is a doozy. I've heard many things, both good and bad...mostly good, about Paula Hawkin's bestselling debut novel, The Girl on the Train. This suspense filled thriller is a story about a girl who becomes engrossed in a couple she sees every day while riding the train. In a astounding turn of events, all is not what it seems or is it?

The simplicity of the plot idea is actually an excellent play of words that were enough for me to immediately purchase the book. Even more so intrigued...I chose it as the July 2015 book of the month pick. I love a good mystery thriller, and so far this book delivers. However, full disclosure...any book or film that has a comparison uttered of the likes of the iconic style of Alfred Hitchcock, is an automatic watch or read for me.

I'm currently in the middle of reading this month's pick and can't wait to find out the upcoming twists and turns that are surely just pages away.

Paula Hawkins's debut novel is a compelling concoction of interesting characters, careening down a ghastly path that adds up to one hell of a crazy good read and hopefully a brilliant end.

You know what to do...order a copy of the July book of month pick and as always...happy reading!

The debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people's lives.

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed.

Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.
