Popsugar #13 – A book with the same title as a movie or TV show but is unrelated to it

This is a bit of a tough prompt, if you don’t know of something off the top of your head, because it means you have to search books and tv/movies. Searching imdb.com might help but it still means searching a couple of databases to see if things exist. I was originally going to read HeartlessContinue reading “Popsugar #13 – A book with the same title as a movie or TV show but is unrelated to it”

Popsugar #12 – A book that passes the Bechdel test

The Bechdel test is a measure of the representation of women. In a movie or a book are there at least two women featured who talk to each other about something other than a man? Sometimes the requirement that the two women must be named is added. I feel like there are more and moreContinue reading “Popsugar #12 – A book that passes the Bechdel test”

Popsugar #11 – An Anthology

I don’t read many anthologies. I’m not sure why… I think it’s because I like longer stories. The slow build to the climax and then the resolution drawn out over the length of 300-500 pages. That’s what I like. The anthologies that I’ve read have usually been because of a various challenge or a veryContinue reading “Popsugar #11 – An Anthology”

What the Wind Knows – Book Review – No Spoilers

What a beautiful book. So, so beautiful. This book will definitely be in my top 10 books for the year. My mom found this book and suggested it for our in real life book club. I totally forgot to read it until the week prior to when we were meeting… socially distancing meeting in person.Continue reading “What the Wind Knows – Book Review – No Spoilers”

Truth or Beard – Book Review – No Spoilers

This book was not for me. I read it, but I was not impressed. Not even as a guilty pleasure. Truth or Beard by Penny Reid was published July 2015 by Caped Publishing. The copy I read was an ebook copy that I got from my library. I chose it because it fit a ‘cheese’Continue reading “Truth or Beard – Book Review – No Spoilers”

Took a break…

I haven’t posted anything for days. I think five days but honestly, I just don’t know. I just didn’t feel like it. Ever have one of those days… or two… or whatever… when you just feel meh. You don’t really have the motivation to do anything. That was me. Early on in the quarantine/coronavirus pandemic,Continue reading “Took a break…”

Erotic Stories for Punjabi Women – Book Review – No Spoilers

I picked this book because it is supposed to fit Popsugar challenge prompt #4, a book about a bookclub. Now that I’ve read it, for me, it doesn’t fit but I’m super picky. As I mentioned in one of my posts about prompts, you choose the rules. You choose what fits and what doesn’t. It’sContinue reading “Erotic Stories for Punjabi Women – Book Review – No Spoilers”

Author Spotlight: Octavia E Butler

I’m a bit ashamed to say that prior to last week, I had no clue who Octavia E Butler was. I decided that I’m probably not the only one and I would take a moment, on this… what would have been her 73rd birthday, to highlight who she was. I knew of her name, butContinue reading “Author Spotlight: Octavia E Butler”

When Death Comes Stealing – Book Review – No Spoilers

I found this book while looking for suspense books by Black authors. Suspense or murder mysteries is my favorite genre and I consume those types of books quickly. The tag for my online book group via Goodreads is suspense, so it’s the perfect time to find a new suspense series. When Death Comes Stealing byContinue reading “When Death Comes Stealing – Book Review – No Spoilers”
