Recommended Reading: Women’s History Month Edition

In honor of March being Women’s History month I have made it my mission to post about one woman per day. I’m posting about a variety of women, women who are brave or admirable. Women who in some measure make the world a better place to be. However, I have also decided to put together a Women’s History Month reading list. It’s short, but Women’s History Month is only 31 days long.  Here are a few of my favorite books that have been written by women that explore the idea of what it means to be a woman. All of…

Joy Harjo

Today, on the second of March, I’m featuring Joy Harjo as part of my tribute to Women’s History Month.

Bette Midler, Did I Ever Tell You You’re My Hero?

March is Women’s History month. To celebrate, I will publish one post featuring a strong, brave, or otherwise admirable woman per day. I’m getting the ball rolling with a profile of one of my life long heroes and one incredible, divine performer, Bette Midler. 

2017 Reading Project: Aemilia Lanyer

What perfect timing for the first installment of my 2017 reading project! In case you’ve missed it my overall reading project focuses on influential women writers. Starting with a focus on the Brits, then branching out into the rootin’ tootin’ authoresses of the new world (very probably next year.) Kicking off my reading project with the first lady on my list, the notable poet and early feminist, Aemilia Lanyer.

The Ways in which Taylor Swift is Every Woman

I know that it isn’t her style, but Tay should strongly consider covering Whitney Houston’s I’m Every Woman, because it’s all in her. Whoa, that sounded like a dick joke. It wasn’t. I’m just implying that although she is widely adored and equally as hated, Taylor Swift never quite gets the credit she deserves. Let me count the ways in which T-Swizzle is amaze-dizzle. P.s. Taylor, if you’re reading this, I REALLY want to be your best friend.

2017 Reading Project Part I: The Brits

I didn’t bother to make resolutions for 2017. I did however compile a gargantuan, majorly over-ambitious reading list. Although if I’m being honest, my list of books to read is always at least slightly over ambitious, but this one will without doubt keep me busy for the entirety of the year. Perhaps more than just…

Sorry, Not Sorry…for this book review!

I will be the first to admit it, I’m a total Gleek. Although if I’m being completely honest, I will admit that I wasn’t always. In fact, I wasn’t on board until halfway through the second season. Glee for me, was an acquired taste. As a former theatre/high school music nerd, I had a multitude of critiques, chief among them being that I thought the show was over-dramatized. I went to a high school in a small, rural town just like the characters of Glee. And just like on Glee artsy kids were the wildly unpopular minority, but that being said no…
