the nowhere girls is a powerful story about a movement led by teen girls against rape culture. review to come. - this month, I've had the opportunity to participate in the #nationalschoolwalkout and the #marchforourlives to take a stand against American gun violence and school shootings. I recognize that this is a small platform, but it is a platform nonetheless. I am urging you to register to vote if you are of age and advocate for what you believe in. If, like me, you are underage, remember: we are still old enough to have voices. I discussed these experiences on the blog today (bio for link).
so I finished 1984 last night and I need to discuss this ending. it was perfectly ambiguous and I've been thinking about it since I turned the last page. aaaah.😂 - anyways, rainbow shelves!! I've thought about re-sorting them alphabetically or something to accommodate the large amount of books I have with black spines, but I love how the colors look from a distance - who controls the past controls the future. who controls the present controls the past. / george orwell, 1984
I'm in a reading slump, but I need to catch up on reading to stay on pace for 100 books this year! I would appreciate any recommendations✨ - you can always control how hard you fight / maureen goo, I believe in a thing called love (starting this soon!)
a rainbow of books. my next few weeks are going to be busy, but I'm hoping to make some time to read, starting with 1984 by george orwell. what's a book you want to read in february?📚 - “It was a bright cold day in april, and the clocks were striking thirteen. / george orwell , 1984
going to start this soon. for the first time (in ever!) I'm still on track for my goodreads goal at this point, haha. 100 books, here I come.📚 - “she had not known the weight until she felt the freedom. / nathanael hawthorne, the scarlet letter
mosquitoland. haven't read this yet, but I hope to in the next few weeks. what's a book at the top of your tbr list?📚 - home is hard. harder than reasons. it's more a storage unit for your life and its collections. it's more than an address, or even the house you grew up in. people say home is where the heart is, but I think maybe home is the heart. not a place or a time, but an organ, pumping life into my life. there may be more mosquitos and stepmothers than I imagined, but it's still my heart. my home. / david arnold, mosquitoland
mind-mapping for midterms. these are some thoughts on photosynthesis.✏️ - ...tired, tired with nothing, tired with everything, tired with the world’s weight he had never chosen to bear / f. scott fitzgerald, the beautiful and the damned
my desk. I just finished reading the nowhere girls and it was such an important story. just two midterms left!!✏️ - silence does not mean yes. no can be thought and felt but never said. it can be screamed silently on the inside / amy reed, the nowhere girls
