If all goes to plan I‘ll be a guest on a Podcast at the end of September to talk about Stephen King. I‘m so excited. And to prepare I‘m re-reading my favorite King novel. And reading Danse Macabre as well. I can‘t wait to fangirl over King‘a works. #returningtoSalemslot #books #stephenking #goodtimes

The Autobiography was very insightful; at times infuriating and at others deeply moving. I left this book with a better appreciation of Malcolm X. I wish this man had lived. I would have loved to see how his trip to Mecca continued to change him and how that would have impacted his work in the civil rights movement.

I‘m having a lot of issues with this book. As a Womanist I have a hard time with the misogyny of Malcolm X. I don‘t regret reading this at all but some of it makes me rethink all that I knew and loved about this man. #history #books

I am both intrigued and grossed out. It‘s pretty clear that Ann Rule was attracted to Bundy. The way she shades his unassuming girlfriend Liz is weird; particularly taking shots at her looks etc. #truecrime #audiobook #quickreads

I had a hard time with parts of this book. Mainly it was the racism and sexism of the book that bothered me but it wasn‘t until I really thought about it that I realized that that was the entire point. Hendricks did a beautiful job of showing the BS in US culture. Also the book is really funny. I will definitely end up reading this again.

The long and short of it is that Margaret Beaufort is perhaps one of those characters I hate to actually (kinda) like. She wants to appear as this gentle woman; whose godly etc. But she comes off as a righteous, spiteful and judgmental woman who above all is ruled by jealously. The women of War of the Roses are definitely much more interesting then the men lol.

Birthday books….my partner and I went to our favorite bookshop yesterday and I got these. I attempted to pay for them and he wasn‘t having that lol. I can‘t wait for a nice day to go to the park and sit and read Hardy and let my brain work a little harder. I love classics and I am so happy to have this mini edition. I looks for Austen and they where out.

I love this quote however, I don‘t love the context it is used in in this book. It feels also cringy to me. I took the section to mean to just allow people to overstep boundaries and that‘s a no for me. The sixth chapter is just odd. #books #quotes #cleanlove
