3 / 5 stars
Did not finish

I believe that Total Blueprint for World Domination was one of the first ebooks I ever won and I'm pretty sure this was from a blog reviewing it, and the copy was then provided by the author, please excuse me if I am wrong because this was added to my Goodreads shelf in March 2012. However no matter how this book came to my kindle, it doesn't change my opinion.

I first started reading this book April 2012 and tried to fully invest myself into it, I made notes and took part with every aspect of it but ultimately I put it on hold and gave it the "its not you, its me" talk.

Finally last month I decided to take it off my on hold shelf and try and finish it, but as I'm slowly getting happier with did not finish books, I decided this was the best for this book.

But now I hear you ask, well why such a decent rating for a book you clearly didn't enjoy?

And its that simple, I didn't enjoy it.

Non fiction isn't my usual kind of reads, I figured I'd give it a go, how bad can a self help book be, and that's just it, it isn't bad.

But I am. I have too many issues with myself, too much anxiety and too much pessimism, to see how this book can be helpful for me.

Believe me I tried.

That is the whole point of the book after all, to better yourself and your life plans.

But all I could think was "ah yes, this could work, if I wasn't me".

So don't let me not finishing it put you off, because it is helpful, it has some very valid points.

However, I am not at a time in my life where I'm physically or mentally able to tackle my own problems just yet.

So all in all,, good book, just not for me.


  1. You're OK Lauren, when you get to my age, you'll have a better appreciation for self-help books, you'll seek it out! LOL

    So right now, stay fanciful and live your life they way you want it, trust your instincts, make mistakes. You'll make enough to prime you for books like this, I promise.


    1. Haha maybe, my mum reads a lot and she got me one for Christmas - even though she refuses to buy any that are on my wishlist.

      Thank you :* xoxox
