Nothing Personal | James Baldwin

To mark my upcoming 40th Birthday my Partner and I are in New Orleans. And I could not come here and not go to Baldwin and Co. Coffee and Bookstore to browse books and grab a coffee 🖤. NOLA feels like home. No other way to explain it. #nola #jamesbaldwin #homeofmyheart

Mists of Avalon | Marion Zimmer Bradley
post image

I have been meaning to listen to the audiobook or read the book for some time. Within about two hours in I had a lot of thoughts. Mainly the constant mentions of inc**t where getting to me; so I decided to research it and found out some uncomfortable things about Zimmerman-Bradley and I ditched the book. I plan on donating my anthology to my library. #noway #yeetedthis

This past weekend was my birthday; so my partner and went to NYC on a mini vacation. On our last night we went to see Little Shop of Horrors at The Westside Theatre. While in the city I took him past The Majestic; which is where I saw my first Broadway play (The Phantom of the Opera). #plays #culture #littleshopofhorrors

Mehso-so

I don‘t know if it was the audiobook or the over all story line but I didn‘t love it. I am going to have to real sit with this one for a moment to figure out what didn‘t thrill me.

I am finally re-reading this book; I first read it in Highschool and reading it now, as a Woman approaching 40 hits different. My Womanist mind set can not turn off. I feel an anger for Celie that I can‘t explain.

Three Sisters, Three Queens | Philippa Gregory

Long time no post! I am working my way (still) through the Plantagenet series; I will say this one was really good. I will say the main character, Margaret was almost as annoying as her grandmother (the Red Queen). I am finally at The Other Boleyn Girl and I am so excited to read it. #reading #historicalfiction

If all goes to plan I‘ll be a guest on a Podcast at the end of September to talk about Stephen King. I‘m so excited. And to prepare I‘m re-reading my favorite King novel.

The Autobiography was very insightful; at times infuriating and at others deeply moving. I left this book with a better appreciation of Malcolm X. I wish this man had lived. I would have loved to see how his trip to Mecca continued to change him and how that would have impacted his work in the civil rights movement.

I‘m having a lot of issues with this book. As a Womanist I have a hard time with the misogyny of Malcolm X. I don‘t regret reading this at all but some of it makes me rethink all that I knew and loved about this man. #history #books

I am both intrigued and grossed out. It‘s pretty clear that Ann Rule was attracted to Bundy. The way she shades his unassuming girlfriend Liz is weird; particularly taking shots at her looks etc. #truecrime #audiobook #quickreads

IndianBookworm Also, she clearly mentioned the said age gap a few times in a sense like had she been younger or Ted been older. She reduced Liz to a minor character according to me. 2y

I had a hard time with parts of this book. Mainly it was the racism and sexism of the book that bothered me but it wasn‘t until I really thought about it that I realized that that was the entire point. Hendricks did a beautiful job of showing the BS in US culture. Also the book is really funny. I will definitely end up reading this again.

The long and short of it is that Margaret Beaufort is perhaps one of those characters I hate to actually (kinda) like. She wants to appear as this gentle woman; whose godly etc. But she comes off as a righteous, spiteful and judgmental woman who above all is ruled by jealously. The women of War of the Roses are definitely much more interesting then the men lol.

Birthday books….my partner and I went to our favorite bookshop yesterday and I got these. I attempted to pay for them and he wasn‘t having that lol. I can‘t wait for a nice day to go to the park and sit and read Hardy and let my brain work a little harder. I love classics and I am so happy to have this mini edition. I looks for Austen and they where out.
