“Becoming” by: Michelle Obama

I listened to the audiobook read by Michelle Obama. I always try to do that when I can so I can hear the voice of the author. Hear her speak her own written words in her own words. Michelle Obama never asked to be FLOTUS. She wasn’t trying to be. That’s how life happened though and she handled that change and transition with grace. I didn’t agree with some of […]

“All the Missing Girls” by: Megan Miranda

The oddest thing about this is that I am highly unsure how I really feel about it. I listened to the audio in its entirety in one day. I can’t imagine how anyone would be able to follow it otherwise. :::Spoiler alert here on out::: This entire story is told backwards with time jumps and flashes throughout. Time is a very important theme here as well as allusions to Alice […]

“The Killing Joke” by Alan Moore

Holy shit Batman! I knew from other books that referenced this comic that the Joker shot Barbara in this one. I did not know that Gordon was with her at the time and that the Joker tore off her clothes and took pictures of her afterwards (so disturbing). The Joker origin story I feel may or may not have been the “true” one as Joker himself even says he gets […]

“The Hate U Give” by: Angie Thomas

There are some books that instantly grab you and pull you in. This was one of those books. I listened to the audio version of this book and had to pause it multiple times because my heart was heavy and I felt tears beginning. At first, when #BlackLivesMatter movement began, I didn’t understand it. All lives should matter right? But then I researched more into it and learned what it […]

The first day (Day 2 of Booktubeathon) I knocked out 206 pages total outdoors.
