Two for Tuesday March Prompts

Comments 8 Standard

Happy Women’s History month everyone! I think I’m going to making this month’s prompts themed around that.

Week 1: Two books with a strong female lead

These books can feature superheroes, activists, or just a woman who knows what she’s doing.

Week 2: Two books written by women of color

One of the main reasons I started this blog was to talk about diverse literature and it’s just grown from there. Let’s shine the spotlight on some women of color!

Week 3: Two quotes by inspirational women

It’s up to you whether you want these quotes to be from books or not. Let’s get inspirational!

Week 4: Your two favorite unsung female heroes

I want to close out the month on a positive note, bringing light to the unsung heroes. They can be a little known women who made a big change, or someone closer to home. It’s all up to you!

My Thoughts on Grownish Season 2 Episode 9

Comments 4 Standard

You may have noticed that I didn’t post a recap and discussion last week. I could tell you excuses involving my exams or work or balancing school and a social life, but truth be told, I just wasn’t feeling episode nine.

If you’ve read my previous recaps, you already know I’m not a big fan of Zoey and Luca’s relationship. All these issues they’re going through just seem to further prove my point that they shouldn’t be together in the first place. I hope they break up before season three because I can not take any more of this foolishness.

February Goals

Comments 4 Standard

As you may know, I made a Goals of 2019 post earlier this year. I had two blogging goals and two reading goals. I’m going to try breaking down these goals by month to help keep me on track.

Reading Goal: Finish 2 Books

So last month, I read The Poet X and Dear Martin. I finished them both before school started and I loved them. Since school has started up again, I haven’t had as much time to focus on a single book. I keep starting one and then stopping, then picking up a completely different book.

All this to say, I’m hoping to finish at least two books this month.

Blogging Goal: Stay Consistent

The main reason I’ve been able to keep posting while in school is because of the amazingness that is the scheduling tool. I’ve had at least six posts scheduled at any given time but lately, I’ve been too busy to create posts. I’m hoping to keep my page fresh with new posts this month.

I also want to keep up with the Two for Tuesday tag. Make sure to join if you’re interested.

Bookstagram Goal: Post 3X a Week

I’ve been slacking with my bookstagram for the past week or so. Truth be told, I need to take more pictures. I’m probably going to have another book photo shoot pretty soon. Make sure to follow my page on the sidebar.

Personal Goal: Keep Track of my Planner

I need to work on getting my life reorganized. I currently have four classes, two part-time jobs, and three organizations I’m part of at my University. I definitely need to make a few changes and get my life together.

What are your goals for February?

How has this first week been for you?

Two for Tuesday Prompt #1

Comments 5 Standard

Prompt #1 : Two books that taught you something

For this first prompt, I’m throwing it back quite a bit. The first book I chose was March by John Lewis. It’s the book that taught me about the unsung heroes of the civil rights movement.

And the second one is a book I read sooo long ago. I was probably in elementary school or something but I remember loving it. I learned so much about World War II by reading Under the Blood Red Sun by Graham Salisbury.

Are you participating in Two for Tuesday?

What lessons did you learn from books?

January Wrap-Up

This year started out pretty well as far as blogging goes. I posted daily for the first two weeks straight and I still posting quite regularly after that. I published a total of 27 posts this month!

Blogging Goals Update:

Earlier this month, I posted my Reading + Blogging Goals for the year. So far, I’ve been doing really well with the blogging goals. I’ve been posting pretty consistently. I’m hoping to keep that consistency going.
