Tuesday Thoughts & Talks [11]: It's A Wonderful Death...?

This is a meme hosted HERE that asks us to present something we've learned or thought about after we finished reading a book to anyone out there - sparking a conversation amongst us!

What I Read to Spark the feels:
It's A Wonderful Death By Sarah J. Schmitt

This week's Tuesday Thoughts & Talks is going to be based off of my Waiting On Wednesday pick going up on the blog tomorrow. It had such an interesting synopsis that got me thinking about the mistakes and regrets we might have in life. Without giving too much away, this book presents an ultimatum to a girl who is essentially stuck in a sort of purgatory: either wait for your soul on Earth to expire or relive three months of your life in hopes of making better choices that lead to a different outcome. What drew me into this book was the idea of righting the wrongs we might have made in our lives. Is it something we should do? (This weeks topic is very hypothetical - unless someone has actually created a time machine in which case please let me know ASAP) It would be ideal to write the wrongs we make but I think the more important long-term solution to the 'wrongs' we make is to accept that they are wrong doings and learn/move on from them. Clearly that is easier said than done but what I mean by it is that we shouldn't focus on correcting something in the past because it's in the past already. We should focus on what is happening in the now and the the future. I don't know how this topic is resolved in It's A Wonderful Death but I think it'll be interesting to read from a character's POV where we aren't the ones to make the hard decisions. There is the chance to push the character to extremes and really hit home a great message for readers!

Would you try to correct your wrongs of the past or try to move on from them?
