Goodreads Summary
Jasmine and Chelsea are sick of the way women are treated even at their progressive NYC high school, so they decide to start a Women’s Rights Club.

But with such positive support, the club is also targeted by online trolls. When things escalate, the principal shuts the club down. Jasmine and Chelsea will risk everything for their voices—and those of other young women—to be heard.

Top Ten Tuesday: Longest Books Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list. 

Good afternoon. Now, this week’s topic is all about length. I’ll be the first to admit that I get so intimidated by books that are over 600 pages long, which is why I’ve only featured the books that are over that number. They are beasts in terms of size and depth, so you know before going into the books that they’re going to take a whole lot of time to finish. However, some books are worth it and you’ll find that the layers of depth to these books are unrivaled. So, here are the longest books I have ever read.

September Wrap Up 2018

BREAKING NEWS: I read not one, but TWO books in September. That is what I call a miracle.

For those of you who don’t know, I’ve not finished an entire book in over 2 months, so that fact that I read one is an achievement in itself. 

The books in question were both hits. I finally read the conclusion to the ever-entertaining and stress-inducing Illuminae Files. Obsidio really delivered on all fronts for me and was a stellar conclusion to the series. I also picked up Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology book, which is a collection of some of the most memorable and entertaining Norse tales. Gaiman did a phenomenal job of capturing the spirit of the gods.

In other news, there is actually not a lot to report on in my life. I’m still pushing through the daily grind of working, sleeping, then working again. My life has a become very formulaic in its routine and it’s making me restless.

On the blogging front, I am still struggling to find that life/work/blog balance, but I am trying to be a bit more consistent in my posting/blog-hopping. It’s hard, and while logically I know I’m doing the best I can it’s still easy to feel out of the loop at times. On that note, here is a summary of September’s posts.

Blanca & Roja by Anna-Marie McLemore

Publication Date: October 9th, 2018

Goodreads Summary
The biggest lie of all is the story you think you already know.

The del Cisne girls have never just been sisters; they’re also rivals, Blanca as obedient and graceful as Roja is vicious and manipulative. They know that, because of a generations-old spell, their family is bound to a bevy of swans deep in the woods. They know that, one day, the swans will pull them into a dangerous game that will leave one of them a girl, and trap the other in the body of a swan.

TV Talk: Vikings

A warning before reading this post. It is long, I ramble a lot, and I’ve tried to keep spoilers to a bare minimum. My life has been consumed by this show for the past couple of month, and while I still have a series to go before catching up, I thought now would be the perfect moment to highlight the best moments of what I’ve seen so far.
