Pornographic Tarot and the (admittedly) Less Interesting Books I got this Past Week.

Something I did not anticipate when I purchased the Royo Dark Tarot Deck: a pornographic deck. Not that I’m complaining, there’s plenty of female eye candy. To Royo: thank you. Thank you for that little, unexpected treat. There will be a review of this deck of Tarot, but that’s for later, when I have more experience using them.

The second book I got from Netgalley in the form of an ebook: The Girl from the Well. Creepy stuff, man. Well, at least in the beginning. Click here to see my video review. 

Even though I wasn’t a huge fan of The Girl I requested the second book, The Suffering because I need to continue the story, even if the ending of the first book was pretty definite. 

I then ordered from Amazon Writing Monsters and The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Expression. The latter is a reference book that I haven’t even skimmed through yet (I’m heightening the anticipation), the former is not so much a reference book as a workbook.

Finally, I requested a second title from Netgalley, Anodea Judith’s Chakra Yoga. She’s an author I’m familiar with, having read her (arguably) most popular book The wheels of Life, a book that introduces readers to their Chakra system and how to care for it. I actually requested this one on accident, I thought I was requesting Tarot and the Chakras. #Fail 

Regardless, I now have a wealth of books to keep me occupied for some time. Unfortunately, I have many of those so while I’m reading I’m constantly distracted by my other books. #CommonReaderProblems
