Do people still do these?  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Anyways, I work this entire weekend but I still want to get some reading done. Here are the books that I plan on reading this week!

Also, I am preparing for June where my blog will solely focus on PRIDE related content so watch for that post in the future!

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (On Page 250)

Gone Girl

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?

Thoughts so far: Although this is taking me absolutely forever to finish this book, I’m still enjoying it so far! All I know is that both Nick and Amy are batshitwild. Can’t wait to see how it ends

Little & LionLittle and Lion by Brandy Colbert (Audiobook)

When Suzette comes home to Los Angeles from her boarding school in New England, she isn’t sure if she’ll ever want to go back. L.A. is where her friends and family are (along with her crush, Emil). And her stepbrother, Lionel, who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, needs her emotional support.

But as she settles into her old life, Suzette finds herself falling for someone new…the same girl her brother is in love with. When Lionel’s disorder spirals out of control, Suzette is forced to confront her past mistakes and find a way to help her brother before he hurts himself–or worse.

Thoughts so far:  I literally only listen to 5 minutes so I don’t have any thoughts so far :/.

There are other books I’m looking at right now but these are the ones I’m for sure going to read this week. I really want to finish Gone Girl because it’s definitely been long overdo. Thank God for audiobooks since I have a pretty busy week!

“Why Party When You Can Read?”| #1

I’m a college student yet I never go out during the weekends to these parties hosted by the frat houses (okay people in greek life low-key scare me). So this is a knock off version of my Friday Reads since I will be mostly be reading. Oh, I am also working 10pm-5am tonight so please send some positive vibes lmao.

So, here’s what I’m reading this weekend

25526296Children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere… else.

But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children.

Nancy tumbled once, but now she’s back. The things she’s experienced… they change a person. The children under Miss West’s care understand all too well. And each of them is seeking a way back to their own fantasy world.

But Nancy’s arrival marks a change at the Home. There’s a darkness just around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it’s up to Nancy and her new-found schoolmates to get to the heart of the matter. No matter the cost.

25667918Her name is Binti, and she is the first of the Himba people ever to be offered a place at Oomza University, the finest institution of higher learning in the galaxy. But to accept the offer will mean giving up her place in her family to travel between the stars among strangers who do not share her ways or respect her customs.

Knowledge comes at a cost, one that Binti is willing to pay, but her journey will not be easy. The world she seeks to enter has long warred with the Meduse, an alien race that has become the stuff of nightmares. Oomza University has wronged the Meduse, and Binti’s stellar travel will bring her within their deadly reach.

If Binti hopes to survive the legacy of a war not of her making, she will need both the gifts of her people and the wisdom enshrined within the University, itself – but first she has to make it there, alive.

25733577Ask a Queer Chick is a guide to sex, love, and life for lesbian, gay, bi, and queer women. Based on the long-running and popular advice column for The Hairpin, but featuring entirely new content, Ask a Queer Chick cuts through all of the bizarre conditioning imparted by parents, romantic comedies, and The L Word to help queer readers and their straight/cis friends navigate this changing world. Offering advice on everything from coming out to getting your first gay haircut to walking down the aisle, Ask a Queer Chick is a positive, down-to-earth guide that will resonate with readers of Dan Savage and Cheryl Strayed’s Tiny Beautiful Things

Friday Reads 01/27/17 + #Diverseathon Update

Happy Friday Everyone!

This has been my most stressful week I’ve had for a while. I went back to college and classes have been rough. I dropped two of them and hopefully, the school doesn’t drop one of my other classes because then I will be in a world of hurt.

Enough with that tiny life update. THIS IS A BOOK BLOG AFTER ALL?!?!?!?

Anyways, here are the books I want to read this weekend (that will hopefully help me lower my stress levels)


Difficult Women by Roxane Gay

Diifff woe.jpg

The women in these stories live lives of privilege and of poverty, are in marriages both loving and haunted by past crimes or emotional blackmail. A pair of sisters, grown now, have been inseparable ever since they were abducted together as children, and must negotiate the marriage of one of them. A woman married to a twin pretends not to realize when her husband and his brother impersonate each other. A stripper putting herself through college fends off the advances of an overzealous customer. A black engineer moves to Upper Michigan for a job and faces the malign curiosity of her colleagues and the difficulty of leaving her past behind. From a girls’ fight club to a wealthy subdivision in Florida where neighbors conform, compete, and spy on each other, Gay delivers a wry, beautiful, haunting vision of modern America reminiscent of Merritt Tierce, Jamie Quatro, and Miranda July.

#Diverseathon Update

As I predicted, I have not been reading a lot. However, I did read and finish Shadowshapers so yay! I was initially going to read George but I decided to read Difficult Women instead (still #own voices!). I will be doing a wrap up soon so make sure to look out for that post in the near future so you can hear my thoughts of these two books!

Friday Reads 01/20/17

Happy Friday Everyone!

I know today kinda sucks being January 20th but reading is a great way to distract myself! YAY!

I only plan on reading/finishing one book this weekend and that’s The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I’m already about half way through and I’m enjoying it so far! There’s only two stories that I wasn’t feeling but the rest are pretty worthwhile.

The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Now, in her most intimate and seamlessly crafted work to date, Adichie turns her penetrating eye on not only Nigeria but America, in twelve dazzling stories that explore the ties that bind men and women, parents and children, Africa and the United States.

Friday reads the thing.jpgIn “A Private Experience,” a medical student hides from a violent riot with a poor Muslim woman whose dignity and faith force her to confront the realities and fears she’s been pushing away. In “Tomorrow is Too Far,” a woman unlocks the devastating secret that surrounds her brother’s death. The young mother at the center of “Imitation” finds her comfortable life in Philadelphia threatened when she learns that her husband has moved his mistress into their Lagos home. And the title story depicts the choking loneliness of a Nigerian girl who moves to an America that turns out to be nothing like the country she expected; though falling in love brings her desires nearly within reach, a death in her homeland forces her to reexamine them.

Searing and profound, suffused with beauty, sorrow, and longing, these stories map, with Adichie’s signature emotional wisdom, the collision of two cultures and the deeply human struggle to reconcile them. The Thing Around Your Neck is a resounding confirmation of the prodigious literary powers of one of our most essential writers.

A “wild blue yonder” Friday Reads!

Happy Friday to all you book people who would rather spend their Friday with a book than with..umm…someone else.

I’m not going to do a lot of Friday Reads for the new year, but since I’m on my winter break from university, I’m going to READ, READ, READ.

This weekend, I decided to see if I can tackle FOUR BLUE books. It may be unlikely but is certainly not impossible. Realistically, I would like to read 2 of these books. Also, there are eBooks I want to read so if I’m not feeling these, I might just resort back to overdrive.

I have no idea what any of these are about (excluding Amulet) so I’ll be going into these BLINDLY…YAY. Hopefully one of these will become a favorite!



Wonder by R.J. Palacio

Amulet: The StoneKeeper’s Curse by Kazu Kibuishi

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

Frozen by Melissa De La Cruz and Michael Johnston
