Reading Rush Wrap-Up

Comments 5 Standard

The Reading Rush is (sadly) over and I had so much fun participating this past week. I finished a grand total of 3 whole books. I also did two of the Instagram challenges.

This makes me want to do another readathon, it’s nice having those challenges and trying to get as many done as you can in the time allotted. Well, let’s get into wrap-up.

Challenges:

Grownish Season 2 Episode 19 (Recap + Discussion)

Comments 5 Standard

This is the episode I’ve been waiting for. As a mental health advocate at my own university, I know how difficult it is to be a black person in college and the stress that entails. This episode highlighted so many important and often unaddressed issues. I loved it.

My TV was giving me problems, hence the lack of post on Wednesday but we don’t need to talk about all that. Let’s get into this recap.

Theme Thursday: Virtual Reality

Comments 3 Standard

I saw this over on Sara’s blog and decided to join in on the fun. I’m currently taking a break from Two for Tuesday, but I do miss having that kind of content on my blog. I think I’ll try some more of these themed posts in the future.

Theme Thursday is a new monthly feature created by Sophie @ Blame Chocolate where bloggers can share recs and newly found books featuring that month’s theme.

  • There will be a different theme (genre, trope, etc) every month. You can check the theme calendar here.
  • Those participating have to list titles that feature that theme in some way (doesn’t have to be the main theme of the book).
  • You can choose one of the four (or five) Thursdays of every month to post.
  • You can use the three main categories: Books I’ve Read/I’m Reading, Books I Want to Read, and Other Books That Fit The Theme but this isn’t mandatory.
  • You can repeat books in different themes, if they apply, and choose as many as you want.
  • You don’t have to take part every month! Just when you feel like it.
  • You can use #BlameThemeThursday on Twitter and other social media to make TT posts easier to find.
  • Finally, use this boxed text (or similar) in your post, as it doubles as a pingback.

Today’s going to be a super short Theme Thursday. This prompt had me stumped until I saw Sara’s list. She mentioned both of these books.
