Bon martin, mes dames et monsieurs et tout les personnes. Not gonna lie.  March, April?  They were months.  I’m just going to be honest and straight up say that I slowed down even more on my reading compared to usual, and it should surprise no one that I did no writing.  That said, it was more or less what I anticipated from the month.  I needed a do-nothing break and while I wouldn’t say I feel rejuvenated, I would say that I feel less trampled.  But that’s enough of that – I have an upcoming post with an apology/explanation for next week. Maintenant, let’s look […]

Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color by Andrea J. Ritchie

Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color by Andrea J. Ritchie

  Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color is a fantastic non-fiction collection of facts and individual stories of Black, Indigenous, Latinx women and female-identifying individuals and their experiences with the police.  This book should have been in conversations last summer when we were talking about Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, the California lynchings, and all the other lives stolen by racism, hate, and unhinged law enforcement.  I’m a bit upset that it wasn’t, to be honest.  A bit upset that books about racism by white women got many more sales, while Invisible No More was […]

Welcome to the first wrap up of 2021, where we get to look at everything that got rolling as the new year started and we can celebrate how strikingly different everything is now that it’s not 2020 anymore! I kid, of course, because we still have all the same things to work on as we did in 2020, all the same concerns and challenges and opportunities for growth.  But the psychology of hope is nice, right?  For myself, 2021 hasn’t been too bad on a personal level, and for that I’m truly grateful.  Still, there’s the continued opportunity to do […]

The Psych Reading Challenge – Because Who Doesn’t Love Reading Challenges Based on Cancelled TV Shows That Just Won’t Die?

The Psych Reading Challenge – Because Who Doesn’t Love Reading Challenges Based on Cancelled TV Shows That Just Won’t Die?

After participating in the year-long reading challenge Start onYour Shelfathon in 2020, I knew I wanted to do at least one reading challenge in 2021 to help guide my reading.  I like the idea of reading challenges and that gamification aspect, especially how they make me look around and mix up my TBR and sometimes even search outside of it to meet challenges. So I figured I’d go find a really popular reading challenge like “Beat the Backlist” or something similar and join in. … But I know that you know… that I’m not telling the truth. (*cue music*) Okay no. […]
