5 Shows that will Curb Grownish Season 2 Withdrawals

I think my fellow Grownish fans can all agree that Wednesdays are not the same. The whole week feels off. You may be going through some serious Grownish withdrawals, but never fear, here are five shows to binge until Grownish Season 2 comes back this summer.

Black*ish Cast

If you started watching Grownish without ever getting into Blackish, do yourself a favor and check it out.

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.

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!

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.”
