It’s that time of year again, where we go back to the hellish world of Gilead in The Handmaid’s Tale. The Handmaid’s Tale is not for everyone. This show tackles triggers such as rape, violence on women and LGBTQIA, and sexual assault. This show is hard to handle and hard to stomach. There are many scenes, I am unable to watch and have to look away from the screen until it’s over. This show does not hold back, it’s very graphic and while it’s an excellent show, extremely well written and well acted, it is not for everyone. If you have any triggers related to rape or sexual assault of any kind, either don’t watch this show or watch with extreme caution. Now, let’s talk about 5 reasons to love The Handmaid’s Tale.

Well, I’ve done it again, I’ve bought more books. Every month, I swear that I’m going to read all the books on my shelves and not buy any books until I’m finished. And I literally never listen to myself, I’m such a push over. If it helps, I did restrain myself a little and only bought like 5 books. And honestly, I deserve an award for controlling myself so much. One gold medal, please! Anyway, on with the book haul!
Hi, geeks! Spring has sprung! And I’m sneezing 50 times a day despite taking the strongest allergy medicine available over the counter. But in between sneezing, I’ve spent the month of March enjoying many wonderful new things and who better to share my favorite things from March than you lovely geeks? No one! There’s books, shows, podcasts, youtube, etc.! Get a snack, sit down, and let’s talk about some amazing things!
So, it’s no surprise that I love YA books, I read them exclusively. But it may be a surprise that I love a good contemporary YA book. Sometimes I’m not all about murder, space, historical YA, etc. It’s a bit weird for me, but I’m learning to fully embrace the contemporary genre! There’s something amazing about reading a characters journey through life or particular situation. It can be heartfelt, powerful, sad, joyful, or all of those at once (usually that’s when you know you’ve found a good contemporary YA). While I’m learning to indulge in the contemporary YA genre, I thought I would share my top list of my favorite contemporary reads I’ve read so far. Here we go!
