When Reading Isn’t Challenging: Discussion

We read for a variety of reasons; to escape, to experience dangerous things safely, and clichely, to expand our minds. So my question to you is this: what do you do when books just don’t surprise you as often as they used to? When you feel like you’ve read this before, or that this bookContinue reading “When Reading Isn’t Challenging: Discussion”

Were My Early Posts Bad?

*This is my final post of WordPress. Please!!! go to https://brittainagof.wixsite.com/tanyxscreams to stay connected!* I’m going to be looking back at some of my earliest posts and judging myself. Based on what I’ve already seen, younger me was much better at writing. Too Tired To Read  is prose (or a diary entry) about the time IContinue reading “Were My Early Posts Bad?”

Book Blogging: Behind The Scenes

You know me as the extremely gay reader, but in my everyday life, I am known as the extremely gay reader.  Let’s try that again. Apart from my (ex) writing group, (Hi Amy!) no one knows I blog. It’s partly because I don’t talk to very many people, and because there are some people inContinue reading “Book Blogging: Behind The Scenes”

2020 Reading Rush ~ Performative Diversity

I am so tired.  To recap, there was a little-promoted group book for The Reading Rush. Such A Fun Age is about a Black babysitter who is stopped by a security guard and accused of kidnapping the white child.

But technically I cheated on Monday because I started May Day aContinue reading “Reading Rush 2020~ Mid-Week Burnout Ramble”

All Of My Discussion Posts- Did What I Think Change?

 I really love discussion posts. And maybe it’s because I’m in a period of grief, but I want to find something that really engages me. Something that will make me think about something other than his dead body and how he wasn’t eating or licking himself in the days before. I need to stop beforeContinue reading “All Of My Discussion Posts- Did What I Think Change?”

I Should Have Read That! Book Tag!

A Cascade Of Books  did this a while ago, and since my TBR will not run out as long as I live, I thought, why not? A book that a certain friend is always asking you to read. Hmm… I don’t have IRL friends who really read. I was recently rec’d To Night Owl From DogfishContinue reading “I Should Have Read That! Book Tag!”

Black Books For Black History Month!

     Today we’re going to celebrate black books, authors, and creators! I am of the belief that people should read diversely every month, but there are times to reflect on a particular race, gender, or sexuality, and now’s the time to reflect on black books. What was the last book you read with aContinue reading “Black Books For Black History Month!”
