Read Harder and 2019

Read Harder 2019 Goodreads Shelf I was looking for options for the 2020 Read Harder challenge and realized that I never did mention that I finished the 2019 challenge. I didn't get a chance to review all the books that I read for it because of the hiatus. I thought about maybe extending some over... Continue Reading →

A study of yoga

My notecards to remember the 8 Limbs of Yoga A lot of people roll their eyes when I mention that there’s a lot more to it than stretching or even exercise. The exercise is actually just one little piece of it. I was letting yoga heal me and transform my view of the world well... Continue Reading →

Restore Me and Defy Me by Tahereh Mafi

There are very few stories or characters that I've gone back to more than these. I don't know what it was about Juliette and Warner that drew me in so much. I remember being so annoyed by the shift in Juliette's attention back in Unravel Me. I loved the first trilogy but I tried not... Continue Reading →

Still I Miss You by Inês Pedrosa, translated by Andrea Rosenberg

As the title suggests, Still I Miss You is about two estranged people who have cared about each other. It had been one of my WIT Month reads last year that I never got a chance to share with everyone on account of my hiatus. More than a story about these two people or the... Continue Reading →

The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf by Ambelin Kwaymullinav

It took forever to settle on a book for the 2019 Read Harder task 8, an #ownvoices book set in Oceania. The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf is a dystopian set in Australia and I picked up the second book as soon as I finished the first. I was behind in the challenge, though and waited...

Mark 14

For the full text of Mark 14, click here. Most of this chapter mirrors Matthew 25, but there are some little differences worth talking about. Mark 14 covers a lot of ground from the beginning of the plot to kill Jesus all the way to Peter’s betrayal. For starters, this one is missing the part... Continue Reading →

Voyages Through Time and Space: The Life of a Russian Psychic by Liliya Sariecheva, translated Robert Osland

It can be surprisingly complicated to find the memoir of a woman in translation that I can get through. That's not to say that those out there aren't good, but the most time I get to read is usually not reading at all but listening to audiobooks and that's where they get really scarce. I...

Nursery Crimes by Ayelet Waldman

I have to admit, this was a ridiculous amount of fun. It hit a few little guilty pleasure nerves that made this mystery much more fun than normal. I have to admit, the genre is kind of growing on me over the last few years. It's this one along with The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow... Continue Reading →

How I Discovered Poetry by Marilyn Nelson

The format and style of this memoir is a lot like Jacqueline Woodson"s brown girl dreaming. The particular setting and type of story is a little different but it's also a Civil Rights era memoir written by a WOC entirely in poetry. Given all those descriptors, one would think that they would be similar, but... Continue Reading →
