Diversifying my Bookshelf: Black Authors

Hello and welcome back to Monika tries to diversify her reading list! Something else that I want to be cognizant of, especially when it comes to reading Black authors, is that I don't only read books about slavery or anti-racism. I think those books have a lot of important and should all be read, but… Continue reading Diversifying my Bookshelf: Black Authors

Diversifying my Bookshelf: Indigenous Authors

With everything that has been going on in the United States and essentially the world (aka. the calling out of racism both in police brutality, systemic structures and our everyday lives) I thought that it would be a good idea to try to actively learn more about how I can combat racism in my life.… Continue reading Diversifying my Bookshelf: Indigenous Authors

But that might be a good thing because now I’ll only take maybe 1000000 words? (I… Continue reading Can we talk about Crooked Kingdom for a minute?

My Struggles with being Words, Pages, Books

So, some of you might’ve noticed that I haven’t been active… for like, 3 months. This coming from someone who wanted to post twice a week, which admittedly didn’t happen, even at the beginning. Oh, how the somewhat mighty have fallen. But, something that I tell myself whenever I start beating myself up over something… Continue reading My Struggles with being Words, Pages, Books

Childhood Favourites

Hello everyone and welcome to SUMMER! It’s getting nice enough here that I can wear cute clothing and read outside.
