Happy Thursday, book friends! Yesterday turned out to be quite the adventure, as my car decided to call it quits in the middle of the tunnel I drive through on my way to work every day. The battery died, just like that, while I was sitting in traffic.
It was quite the ordeal waiting for rescue while cars whipped around me into the other lane. Thankfully, 911 connected me with the workers who oversee the tunnel, and they pushed my car out using their truck. Unfortunately, jumping the battery didn’t work, and I had to call a tow truck.
My car is 20 years old and it’s therefore not looking like the smartest financial decision to pay for repairs. We actually put down a deposit for a new car about a month ago in preparation for such a day, but with the supply chain as it is we’re still waiting for said car to come into existence. So, my husband and I are temporarily a one-car household, which will be interesting. On the bright side, his car has a Bluetooth connection which will make listening to audiobooks so much easier than propping up my phone in the cupholder with the volume turned up like I had to do in mine.
In spite of the adventures of yesterday, I’m mostly just feeling excited for October and spooky season. I have a special October version of my blog logo ready to drop on October 1st and my spookified Twitter display name ready to go. Just a few more days!
Since this is lucky number 13 of my TBR Thursday series and spooky season is around the corner, I knew just which book from the TBR cart to feature this week…
Tarot for Self-Care: How to Use Tarot to Manifest Your Best Self by Minerva Siegal
Self-care is an important daily ritual to everyone’s lifestyle. But it is about more than simply pampering yourself in a bubble bath or getting a manicure. It’s about connecting and understanding your true self. That’s where the magic of tarot comes in–it puts you in touch with your hidden fears and secret hopes, weaknesses and strengths. These revealing cards do more than simply predict the future. They offer essential, insightful messages from your subconscious, showing a new perspective on how to achieve personal growth.Tarot for Self-Care uncovers how to make the most out of your daily tarot practice with mindful readings, pre-reading rituals, daily one-card check-ins, practices to explore your intuition, and more. You can think problems over by laying out a spread, ask the cards yes or no questions, or explore your intuitive skills. It will definitely be worth adding these techniques to your tarot self-care toolbox.Bookshop.org synopsis
Why It’s On my TBR
I’ll be honest. This was 100% an impulse buy when I was purusing the digital shelves over at Book Outlet. I was in a witchy self-care kind of mood and snagged several titles like this. I love using the Tarot for personal reflection and journaling, so I figured this book might be up my alley. Now I just have to get around to reading it to find out!
Do you have any self-care titles on your TBR?

Good luck with the vehicle situation! I’m in a very similar boat right now. I’m fortunate, though, because my hubs has a company vehicle, so I’m not having to share so much.
That’s nice to have the company car to rely on! Car troubles are never fun though.
They’re not. Unfortunately my car was wiped out in an accident. It was bad enough that neither my daughter nor I even wanted to get in a vehicle for a while. Fortunately we’re both past that now.
I’m so sorry to hear that! That sounds like a terrible experience, and I’m so glad you’re both doing better now.
Thanks! Being stuck in a tunnel with a broken down car doesn’t sound too pleasant either. 🙂
Car troubles are so frustrating. I”m glad you got out of the tunnel safely and have a car on order. I hope it comes in sooner than expected.
