If you’ve been following this blog over the course of 2019, you know how much I love gushing about The Poet X. It was my first read of the new year and I’m thankful for that. It only made since to continue on with another one of Elizabeth Acevedo’s masterpieces.
This copy of With the Fire on High was purchased at my local bookstore, The Book Cellar, and that’s also where I took these two pictures. It’s a really cute book shop and I’m thinking about going back and taking more pictures. Comment below if you’d be interested in a post on that.
The minute I started this book, I knew I’d made a mistake.
With the Fire on High is the kind of story that requires a devotion of your day. Setting it down leads to a total dissatisfaction until you can pick it up again. I spent several nights with heavy eyelids, telling myself it would only be one more chapter.
With that being said, let’s get into the actual review.
Mr. Iglesias is a show starring Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias where he stars as a history teacher who’s trying to help his underprivileged students succeed. He fights for his kids, making sure they can stay at the school even when administration tries kicking them out to boost school ratings.
If you read last week’s post, you already know how I breezed through Season Two of On My Block. It’s honestly a great show. Since I finished the second season, I decided to rewatch Season One. It’s just as great, if not better, than I remembered. While recapping on Season One, I noticed a lot more references from the first season in Season Two. Here are a few.
Sidenote: There will be spoilers so read at your own risk.
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.
