Training School for Negro Girls (Book Review)

Comments 2 Standard

Hey y’all! This is the last book I’ll be reviewing from the readathon. Training School for Negro Girls was an interesting set of short stories. It reminded me of Heads of the Colored People which I read a few stories from for my African American Literature class last year.

I actually ended up finding out about this book through Goodreads and my library had the audiobook on the CloudLibrary app, so it felt like a perfect chance for trying out this genre.

Words on Bathroom Walls (Book Review)

Leave a comment Standard

Hey y’all, it’s time for another book review. I originally found out about Words on Bathroom Walls through Kat’s blog, but not as the book itself. It was actually in her “Trailers you might have missed” series because this book is getting a movie adaptation!

I hadn’t heard about the book beforehand but when I saw it was about a main character with Schizophrenia, I knew I needed to read it. If you’re new here, you might not know about my passion for destigmatizing mental illness. I’m a Psychology major because I love learning about the inner workings of the human mind. It’s okay to seek help when your brain isn’t working in the same way it used to.

Hey y’all! It feels like forever since I did one of these. I’ve actually been reading quite a bit since we last caught up. It’s been an interesting mix, to say the least.

WWW Wednesday is a meme that was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived by Sam of Taking on a World of Words. All you’ve got to do is answer these three questions.

Top 5 Tuesday ~ Top 5 Books Where Something Went Right

Comments 14 Standard

Hey y’all, Top 5 Tuesday is back!

Top 5 Tuesday was originally created by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm. She has now passed the baton to Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads and I’m excited to see what the future holds for these posts. Meeghan’s page is super cute, so make sure you check it out!

This topic ended up being harder for me than I thought it’d be. I decided to go through my Goodreads to pick out some books and I think these ended up fitting the prompt pretty well.

The Many Faces of Lincoln Loud (Comic Book Review)

Leave a comment Standard

Hey y’all! So this will be a short one. I got an eARC of The Many Faces of Lincoln Loud from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I’m a pretty big fan of The Loud House. I still need to catch up on the latest season but I’m pretty sure my younger cousins have been keeping up. They’re the ones that got me into it in the first place. I think the creators are doing a great job of making a show that’s fun for kids but also teaches valuable lessons on empathy, family, and friendship.
