My Thoughts on Little (Movie Review)

*Synopsis*

The premise of Little is simple enough. Our main character, Jordan, goes to sleep grown and wakes up little. It’s not only strange, but also inconvenient for this tech mogul.

Jordan is not someone to be messed with. From an early age she realized that to avoid being bullied, she had to become the bully. She’s had to step on a lot of toes to get where she is today.

Now, she’s the head a huge tech company and she’s making some serious bank. I’m talking top penthouse suite kind of money. But that money can’t buy happiness, or the love of her coworkers. They completely fear her, and that’s how Jordan likes it. Her assistant, April, is at Jordan’s beck and call.

After messing with the wrong little girl, Jordan has some black girl magic thrown in her face. The next morning, she wakes up thirteen again, aka the worst time of her life. She calls in April to help her figure out how to get back to grown Jordan and the story goes on from there.

*My Thoughts*

I’ve been waiting for this movie to come out for months now, especially after hearing Marsai Martin produced it. I went to see it with a group and we had a great time. It’s definitely one of those movies that appeals to a broad audience. There’s a cute message at the end and everything’s tied up nicely. I’m hoping to see more movies from Martin’s company.

What’s next for On My Block?

Today’s post is going to be some of my thoughts on Season Two and what I think will happen in season three. This post is going to be full of spoilers, so be warned.

I recently made the mistake of finishing the second season of On My Block. Now I have to wait another year for the show to come back. We don’t have a confirmed Season Three yet, but with the popularity that On My Block has, it’s almost guaranteed. I made the same mistake with the first season. It’s just one of those shows that really draws you in.

Wolfpack (Book Review)

I received a signed ARC of Wolfpack at the Be the Change event hosted at my university this past Friday. If you read my interview last week, you’ll know that that’s also where I got a chance to meet Elaine Welteroth. This week has truly been remarkable.

After I finished Wolfpack, I took a few pictures for my bookstagram:

Two for Tuesday: April Fools

Two for Tuesday is a tag I started on my blog this year. If you’d like to participate and write up your own Two for Tuesday posts, make sure to comment below!

In honor of the notorious April Fool’s Day yesterday, this week’s prompt is about two funny books. And I mean laugh out loud, almost peed my pants, level of funny!

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

This book was absolutely hilarious. Despite everything that happened, Monty was still able to find humor in the situation. I listened to the audio book of The Gentleman’s Guide and I highly recommend it.

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian gave me all the feels, but the humor stuck out quite clearly. Junior’s take on what happened over the course of the year continued to show his resilience and his humor kept the story moving.

Have you read the books I mentioned?

My Thoughts on The Upside

I went to see The Upside with my mom a couple weeks ago and we had a great time. This isn’t going to be a full review, just a few of my thoughts.

I felt a little iffy about going to see The Upside, but my brother mentioned that this was one of Kevin Hart’s first really serious roles. I think he and Bryan Cranston did a great job portraying these roles. Just because they were playing serious roles, doesn’t mean there weren’t a bunch of good laughs thrown in.
