Two for Tuesday: April Flowers

Two for Tuesday is a weekly tag I host here on my blog. If you’re interested in joining, just let me know and I’ll add you to the list of participants. This week’s prompt is two books that have flowery language.

My first pick literally has a flower on the cover. You can’t get more flowery than that.

the sun and her flowers by Rupi Kaur

I got the sun and her flowers as a birthday gift a few years ago. I immediately devoured it. Poetry just has a way of connecting to my pain in ways I didn’t know possible. I haven’t gotten around to reading her first book, Milk and Honey. Hopefully, I’ll finally get to it this summer.

The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

The Sun is Also a Star is a beautiful story. The language is very flowery at times, but completely understandable. It’s one of those books that has resonated with me ever since I finished it.

I’m surprised both of my picks for this month have sun in the title. But then again, you can’t have flowers with sunshine.

What are some of your favorite flowery books?

Two for Tuesday Prompt #4

Prompt #4: Two books that help you sleep at night

For this prompt, I was thinking along the lines of bedtime stories or books that give you peace of mind. These are two books I hold dear.

This first one was the first bedtime story I ever had. As a kid, my mom would read me Bible stories until I fell asleep. Then, when I was old enough to read for myself, I would read a chapter every night before bed.

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.

Two for Tuesday Prompt #3

Prompt #3: Two books that remind you of someone

The books I chose for this prompt were both recommended to me by some of my favorite teachers. The first one comes from my middle school English teacher, Mrs. Macon. She introduced me to so much literature during that time period.

February Goals

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?
