Sex Object : A Memoir – Jessica Valenti

Extraordinarily written- short, emotional and humorous in all the right parts. It is a collection of stories from her life that touches on pretty much every issue that women generally go through, from harassment on the street to doubting oneself as a mother. I loved that she kept it real, even in the ugly parts….

Black Mad Crawler

Black Mad Crawler is an Irish Pub bar on Boulevard Richard-Lenoir in the 11th arrondissement of Paris. It is a small pub with dark interior, spotted with bright red neon decorations in places, a couple of tables inside and a few tables outside. I was curious about it because even on a Thursday night, you…

Air India

Think about it. A huge metal time that goes careening through the air with people scattered around, marking their places with their butts at socially acceptable distances. Bright orange seats that hurt the eyes. Blue tinted windows with handprints on the outside to make sure you can never enjoy the view of the clouds beneath…

Reading Trends I Didn’t Know I Had

My last Goodreads account was being shitty and not letting me edit the details I wanted, so my dumb ass just created a new one and added all the 600-something books on the read shelf again. I did lose my TBR but oh well. Fresh start and all, you know. Something romantic about it. Anyway,…

The Nectar Of Pain – Najwa Zebian

I legitimately CANNOT anymore with shallow poetry. Drawing comparisons and writing analogies of love is not the only thing poetry is about, but in the age of Instagram poets, we have collectively started to accept that it is. I’m not having any of this. Nope. Nope nope nope. If there was a drinking game where…

Forest – episodes 9 to 16

Kang Seon Yeok’s “deep dark” past got revealed. Guess who isn’t surprised? How am I supposed to like any of this? The female lead is a pushover, the male lead is an asshole whose feelings change quicker than the minute hand on a clock, the second male lead is the only relatively normal person but…

The Moment Of Lift – Melinda Gates

Of course it is imperative that men participate in the movement (because men who are part of the problem don’t listen to anyone but men), but the salvation that comes from sharing your pain can only be found in sisterhood. When the women were wounded, they were able to absorb their pain without passing it…

Step 1: Find a person with nothing to do.Step 2: Have them tell you that it’s all in your head.Step 3: Bam! You’re cured. Anxiety is usually defined as a diffused, vague, very unpleasant feeling of fear and apprehension without any apparent reason. Without. Any. Apparent. Reason. If I had a dime for every time…

The Old Man and the Sea – Ernest Hemingway

Classic fanatics and elitist snobs are going to come after me for this but *squeezes eyes shut* I- I didn’t like this book. Ernest Hemingway was a very interesting man but I disagree that this is his finest work. Although the descriptions were quite detailed and he certainly knows how to build tension in a…
