An intense and, at times, gritty read. Not quite a romance, but getting there, between 2 adults with their own success and thick passion.Continue reading ““Resuscitation” Reedsy Review”
I know 2020 has been filled with insanity, misery, and, for many people, loss. I was so consumed by everybody else’s pain and complaints, it affected my own outlook and I was appreciating nothing.
Until this week.Continue reading “My Life So Far”
“When you assume the worst, you can’t be surprised when it actually happens.”Woke
Series that mix animation or inanimate talking objects with real environments are usually something I avoid at all costs. I read the synopsis for “Woke” and thought no different.
I was scrolling through Twitter when I saw it as a trending promotion and read some of the tweets before watching the trailer. I was partly sold that it might be worth my time. Then I saw that it addressed the issues of police brutality and race in America, and I was really interested.Continue reading ““Woke” on Hulu: Review”

There were a few times I didn’t understand what was going on in this story, but that did not detract from its appeal. Amber Waves of Grace manages to be charming in its own way and a story that feels certainly different from other romance books I’ve read. There are so many relationships to examine, from familial to church to romantic, that also added to confusion at times. Corrie being at the center of this story all aspects of her life, her relationship with two brothers, her parents, farm life, and her day-to-day troubles kept me reading until the end.
My initial expectations were disassembled from the first five pages. I went in fully expecting a lot of southern, tame, Christian romance and a few characters. A little conflict, but not much, just simple life. This story was not that, and I was pleasantly surprised. I think some knowledge of farming and farming equipment helps in visualizing what’s going on, but that’s one of this book’s few flaws that had me researching while reading. What’s a combine?Continue reading ““Amber Waves of Grace”: Reedsy Discovery Book Review”
The topic for the 3rd week’s lecture was gender and sexuality. I was looking most forward to this topic and thought it would generate a good discussion during our live class.
I was wrong. Yes, it was as interesting and enlightening as I imagined. I learned about muxes in Mexico, third genders in India, two-spirit Native Americans, and other trans and third gender people across culures. They seem to be more accepting of trans people abroad than in the “United States.”Continue reading “Multicultural Psych II: Gender + Sexuality”
