If you've been to school in America, chances are you've come across a dress code (is this a thing in other places too?). The one at my school didn't allow baggy pants, spaghetti straps, shorts/skirts that were a certain length, and at one point, scarves (I got in trouble for this one. don't ask). They… Continue reading Does My Body Offend You?: All Bodies Deserve Respect and Protection

The One True Me and You by Remi K. England: Fandom, Queer Love, and Acceptance
Some books are just so happy and accepting that you can't help but smile and feel all warm inside when you read them. That is The One True Me and You. It's got fandom, fanfiction, queer love, figuring things out, and standing up for what you believe in.

The Viscount’s Lady Novelist by Alissa Baxter Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway
Sometimes, someone will say a book has good banter between the two main characters, and then you read it and it's like "meh." That was not the case with The Viscount's Lady Novelist. The banter between the hero and heroine was borderline addictive.

Jane and the Year Without Summer by Stephanie Barron: Jane Austen, Murder, and Me Sobbing at 2 AM

The Maid by Nita Prose: Voice, Trauma, and Finding Your People
Ok, I want to start this off by talking about a different book. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. When I read that book, it blew my goddamn mind. It spoke to the deepest parts of me and it had a voice that was both unique and very specific. The Maid didn't make me feel the exact same, but it was very close.
When You Get the Chance: Theater, Parents, and Fighting For Your Dreams
