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!

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.”

Make sure to check out my other recaps. I’ll get the Episode 9 recap out within the next few days.

Recap

So this episode starts with Zoey at one of the biggest parties of the semester… during finals week. It’s literally called “Faded for Finals.” She talks about her 3-pronged plan to keep her from getting too wild tonight. She has a timer, breathalyzer, and water, claiming she’ll only stay for ten minutes. Mmmhmm, we’ll see about that boo.

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.
