Two for Tuesday Participants

If you missed it last month, I posted my official prompts for the February Two for Tuesday. It’s a tag that I’m trying to start for book blogging but I might extend it to TV and Movies, as well. You can join at any time, just make sure to comment and link back to me in your Two for Tuesday. The March prompts are up!

In honor of spring, I added a new banner for this month. I took the picture myself and used Canva.com to add the text. Let me know what you think.

Two for Tuesday March Prompts

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!

Are you interested in joining Two for Tuesday? Just let me know in the comments!

Helium (Book Review)

I have been in love with Rudy Francisco’s poetry ever since I first listened to “Scars/To the New Boyfriend.” His writing is just so raw and honest. I feel like I can really understand what he’s been through, even if my past experiences have been completely different.

Prompt #2: Two Books that helped you fall in love with reading

I find it fitting that this prompt is starting right by Valentine’s Day. It’s almost as if I planned it that way. *wink**wink*

I’ve been reading since I was little. My mom heavily encouraged reading growing up and I remember our trips to the local library together. She’d always let me get two books for a dollar from the old ones they were selling.

This week I chose:
