Reading list for your period!

Yes to ALL of this

Guess what, internet? I’m menstruating right now! GASP! I know, right!? Shocker! Let’s talk about it! At the moment I am on day 1. Day 1 is the worst. Part of me wants a Java Chip Frappucino, part of me wants sleep, and part of me wants to bend in half backward because, for some reason, I feel like if I do that, the jackhammer that is currently hammering away on my lower back will stop. I took a shower but I still smell weird, I did a workout, and now I’m writing this post! How normal!

A while back, several bloggers wrote some great posts about how there should/should not be more mention of menstruation in books, specifically in YA. I’m not going to talk about that because my simple opinion is that, yes, we need more of it. But this post, this post, and this post are…

I love Netflix. Netflix has saved me from many a hangover, picked me up when the Sunday blues have gotten a bit too much (real talk: this happens virtually every Sunday) and kept me company on many a quiet Friday night. If there’s anything I love more than Netflix, it’s book recommendations based on Netflix binges.

I got ya, boo.


Stranger Things

Stranger things is a gloriously eighties ode to classic Sci-Fi, male friendship, fantastically bouffant-y hair and being the biggest geek you can possibly be. If Barb is your gal or Eleven is your superhero spirit animal or even if you just really, really like Dungeons & Dragons, then you’re…
