Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

First off, this book is intense. It talks frankly about school shootings, sexual violence, and gang rapes. If that hits close to home, please tread carefully. My mom got this book for me last year and I wasn't sure if I was ready to read it for a variety of factors that will probably consitute … Continue reading Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

Full City Roosters

I took a much-needed break from the blog, which is why there hasn't been an update or post for some time. Grad school has been insane and I'm exhausted constantly but my kids are adorable and it's really inspiring work. Even when I want to throw my head against the wall and give up some … Continue reading Full City Roosters

I’m Still Here: Black Dignity In A World Made For Whiteness by Austin Channing Brown

To be fair, it took me way too long to read this book because I was slammed and couldn't fully devout the kind of attention to it that it deserved. But it's a fascinating read about one woman's experience of being black in today's America and what it means to really authentically love yourself.

Anyway, when I heard that Mat Kearney was coming into town, I knew I needed … Continue reading Mat Kearney, Andrew Belle, and filous

So I just started getting into Betty Who's music after shazaming one of her songs on the radio (does anyone still listen to the radio? just me? okay cool, cool) and hearing Sophia Bush rave about her. Sidenote: Sophia Bush, from One Tree Hill and general badassery, is life goals. Seriously. Anyway, I've listend to … Continue reading ‘Wanna Be’ by Betty Who

“The Gift From The Sea” By Anne Morrow Lindbergh

This book is short, sweet, and refreshing. It makes you feel like you're in a beach house somewhere off the coast where nobody can find you and you come back completely differently. You know, the way a beach house is supposed to be. At least, the ones I visited growing up and dreamed of having … Continue reading “The Gift From The Sea” By Anne Morrow Lindbergh

The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace

It always seems like after i read an intense book, the next book I almost always read is one of poetry. Maybe because it was my first love or maybe its because it soothes my soul. Or both. Probably both. Anyway, on to this. The Princess Saves Herself in This One is beautifully written. You've probably … Continue reading The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace
