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?

What are some of your favorite funny books?

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 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.

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!

Grownish Season 2 Episode 9 Recap + Discussion

I know I completely missed posting this last week. I talked about that in my thoughts on this episode post. Make sure to check out my recaps for Episode 10, Episode 8, Episode 7, Episode 6, Episode 5, Episode 4, Episode 3, and the Premiere. And follow my Twitter for weekly live-tweeting of the episodes.

Recap

Episode nine starts with Zoey, Ana, and Nomi being a cute little squad. They head over to the Cal U Arts Fest to see Luca’s exhibit. One of Luca’s pieces hits a nerve for Zoey. It’s legit a painting of Luca’s ex, and it is super detailed. Aaron mentions that the body is “very well composed.”
