May International Days

Here are the UN International Observances for May! Again, I don't have good reading for every single observance, but I will take suggestions from anyone else who does. I have some books on my TBR that some of these could go with but I'd rather not recommend until I've actually read them myself. 2 May... Continue Reading →

Lady Smoke by Laura Sebastian

Lady Smoke is the second book in the Ash Princess Trilogy. For the review of the first book, Ash Princess, click here. This is a great continuation of the story but some of my opinions on this story could spoil the first one, so please don't go any further if you haven't read that one.... Continue Reading →

Psalm 71: Forsake Me Not When My Strength is Spent

Psalm 71 is a psalm of praise for everything God has done for the psalmist while also being a request for His continued support. It swings between the idea that God has always been there for him and that he needs the continued supports a few times and is almost pleading in the feel. Also,... Continue Reading →

A study of yoga and Christianity

I'm currently The Yoga of Jesus and though I'm not far into it, the idea of Christianity and yoga not being complimentary has been something that has always bothered me. Some Christians think of it as being a part of Hinduism or Buddhism, which would detract from practicing Christianity or faith in Christ. Some think... Continue Reading →

I found Freshwater for Read Harder, task 11. This is a debut novel by a queer author that was recommended by Book Riot. It was just the right book for the way I was feeling too. I had taken a bit of time off to get over the end of the Shatter Me series and... Continue Reading →

Psalm 70: O Lord, Do Not Delay

Psalm 70 is yet another psalm of David, this one listed as a memorial offering. I went back to find what that meant, and it is a part of the offering left for God to remember the psalmist in a good way. I think that means it should be said along with giving a memorial... Continue Reading →

The Yamas and Niyamas: Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice by Deborah Adele

I finished this book during the hiatus and noticed that I never went back and reviewed it. There are actually a few books, mostly the last of the Read Harder 2019 books, that this happened with. It's not generally a big deal with most of them, but it's good to come back around on it... Continue Reading →

An Almost American Girl by Robin Ha

An Almost American Girl is another Read Harder find, this time for task 4, a graphic memoir that just came out in January. It's about Ha's move to the US as a teenager. Realizing the book was about someone not born in the US actually made me like the title so much better. I grew... Continue Reading →
