Ezekiel 19-24: Promises of judgement

This is the last set of chapters leading up to the actual fall of Jerusalem and the warnings of what’s to come. Chapter nineteen This is a lamentation about a lioness and cubs and a vine and vineyard, none of which works out for anyone. Royal lineage becomes a mess at the end of Chronicles with usurpings within and princes taken up to Babylon and … Continue reading Ezekiel 19-24: Promises of judgement

TTT: Bookish Resolutions

Okay, so this one is fairly terrifying. I’m going to throw it out there and utterly fail. The one consolation is that I have a feeling that I won’t be the only one. Prioritize reading or listening to books that I already own. Next priority is reading challenge books. Turn out two reviews every week. Do a better job of keeping up with remembrance days, … Continue reading TTT: Bookish Resolutions

Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay

Review: A memoir of the body is a really interesting idea. Honestly, it makes me want to write a post or series that does the same thing. I haven’t had the same experiences with my body that Gay has, but there are so many ways for the female body to break. In Hunger, Gay begins with a specific kind of break that is more common … Continue reading Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay

Ezekiel 16-18: Chapters that worry me

I had originally wanted to power through Ezekiel a bit faster but chapters 16 and 18 caught me off guard. They remind me a little too much of current events for comfort. I know that the Old Testament God has supposedly “changed” or whatever but I’m not so sure that it’s not just our relationship to Him that’s changed and we’re still shooting ourselves in … Continue reading Ezekiel 16-18: Chapters that worry me

Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Volume 3: Scare Tactics!

Review: I read the first two volumes in this run a while back and had been meaning to catch up on her. The others are reviewed here: Volume 1, Volume 2, and Spider-Women. I finally got a chance to read this one and it was a good send off to the run. I’m not so excited that her run is over, but this is a … Continue reading Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Volume 3: Scare Tactics!

Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More by Janet Mock

Review: I love this book. I love everything about it. I love that during her low points, Mock reminds the reader that these moments are not unique to her story but neither is every part of her story is a part of every trans story. She went through some terrible and trying times, but she also got lucky in many ways, which Mock also points … Continue reading Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More by Janet Mock

Ezekiel 8-15: Visions of what went wrong

God has already given Ezekiel one vision and here comes the second one. This set of chapters goes a little beyond that second vision and there are some times when God is specifically talking to Ezekiel too. Chapter eight Again, we begin with a description that is mostly weird. I get that the presence of God is probably not something that we would consider normal, … Continue reading Ezekiel 8-15: Visions of what went wrong

Ms. Marvel Volumes 4-6

Review: Ms. Marvel has been a favorite of mine since she came out a few years ago. Volume Four: Last Days (#16-19 and Amazing Spider-Man #7-8) What would you during the apocalypse? I love the way this volume answers that question, and for more characters than our protagonist. More than that, getting back into these volumes reminded me why I love this series so much. … Continue reading Ms. Marvel Volumes 4-6

TTT: Top Ten New-to-me Authors of 2017

This Top Ten Tuesday is about authors that were new to me this year! When the Reading Challenges for last year came out I made an effort to fit in all authors that I had been meaning to get to. These are women who are already well recognized with awards or notoriety of different kinds, big in feminist circles, or that I had been raved … Continue reading TTT: Top Ten New-to-me Authors of 2017
