February Reads in Review

Didn't think I'd make it through one more book before the month was out but I did! Book No. 6 My sixth finished book was Divergent by Veronica Roth. This was one of those books and then movies that was all the rage and I kept meaning to but never picked up until now. OMG … Continue reading February Reads in Review

Diversity: Disability

The idea of finding books with differently-abled or non-neurotypical authors or characters really stumped me, so I figured some research would not go amiss. WeNeedDiverseBooks.org starts a discussion here, DiversityInYA.com talks about diversity here, The Guardian talks with TheBookAddictedGirl about the topic here, and the American Library Association weighs in on the link between diversity and banned books here. … Continue reading Diversity: Disability

And as we say goodbye to February, we say hello to March, which is my birthday month! For whatever reason my birthday has always been my absolute favorite holiday, even though I don't want anyone to know about it on Facebook! Isn't that ridiculous? I don't even know. Book No. 5 The fifth book I read … Continue reading February Reads in Review

Is it just me or is February really zooming by? How strange to have rain when this time a few years ago we were snowed in! Book No. 4 The fourth book I finished reading was the second book of the Abarat series, Abarat: Days of Magic, Nights of War by Clive Barker. As expected we … Continue reading February Reads in Review

WotY (Word of the Year) for Work

I've been thinking a lot about integrity and accountability. I sometimes get easily distracted. I have no ill intent, but sometimes I waste time at work. Time that could be spent a better way, accomplishing more. I've been trying to focus on the concept of ACCOUNTABILITY and doing what I know needs to be done … Continue reading WotY (Word of the Year) for Work

A new month, a new batch! Book No. 3 My third finished book was The Girl with All the Gifts by M. R. Carey. This book was super fast-paced and exciting, so it's no surprise that this book is being made into a movie! I'll definitely be doing a compare and contrast once it's out and … Continue reading February Reads in Review

In addition to my modest book reading last month, I was also reading a lot of political articles, and signing a lot of petitions. If you live in America like me, you might feel like the whole country has gone crazy lately! Whatever your soap box, I encourage you to stand up for what you … Continue reading January Reads in Review

I am a notoriously slow reader, so don't be too disappointed in my modest two finished books for this first month of reading. I've read about a million otomé romance novels on my phone but they don't count as books since you play them as phone games. Oops! Book No. 1 My first finished book for … Continue reading January Reads in Review
