2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Forty-First

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Forty-First

Greetings Bookworms! This week I’ve been working on Sammy’s Halloween costume. Not that we’re going Trick-or-Treating in the traditional sense, but that’s no excuse not to have a fun costume. I had originally planned to have Sammers dress up as Mike Wazowski- I even got myself a Sulley costume so we could be all matchy-matchy. Alas. My husband has introduced our son to his favorite childhood cartoon, MASK. It’s kind… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Fortieth

Greetings, Bookworms! I don’t know about you, but I’m completely exhausted by current events. My energy is sapped. My blood pressure goes bonkers when I see science denial and arguing with people on the internet gives me hives. For my own mental health, I’ve liberally (get it? Because I’m liberal? Come for the books, stay for the Dad jokes) used the unfriend and snooze and unfollow features on FB as… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Thirty-Ninth

Hiiiiii Bookworms, I finished reading some books this week! Yay me! This week we decided to take a quick weeknight trip to a local apple orchard/pumpkin patch. We didn’t go to the super popular one because crowds. And, actually, crowd avoidance was why we went on a Monday night. We may be the last people on earth still concerned about COVID-19, but we’re trying to make smart choices. Anyway. We… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Thirty-Third

Howdy Bookworms, I took a little break from the regular updates last week because I wanted to publish a post boosting Black voices in Sci-Fi and Fantasy that I’ve been thinking about for months. Of course it took time to compile, so now I’ve got some catching up to do on the regular reading. Also, it’s occurred to me that I started numbering these posts as like the first week… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Thirty-First

Greetings Bookworms, As I write this, I’m listening to my child steadfastly refuse to nap. I will probably be crying about it in like 10 minute, but until the tears fall, let’s talk about some books. I need the distraction. And maybe, just maybe, my child will talk himself to sleep. Heaven knows he needs it. He didn’t nap yesterday and had a crappy night of sleep last night. How… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Thirtieth

Howdy Bookworms, How’s that Pandemic life treating you? Fun new development- I’m now having COVID related anxiety dreams. Specifically, last night I dreamt I was going to someplace crowded (Disney maybe?) and I realized I didn’t have a mask on. Except NOBODY had masks on. I was aghast, and tried to put on my own mask only to have it consistently dip below my nose (the horrors). AND thanks to… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Twenty Ninth

Howdy Bookworms, How is everyone holding up? We’ve had a rocky week with nap avoidance. Sammy is almost 3, a fact that I can barely wrap my head around. I revel in his daily naps, but I know that all good things end eventually… I just hope that he’s not giving up his nap forever right now because I don’t know how much longer we’re going to be doing the… Read more »

Weekly Wrap-Up 2020: The Twenty Sixth

Hey Bookworms, It’s July now. Because time no longer means anything. On the upside, my child is contentedly watching some outer space educational cartoon set to a hip hop soundtrack. There are also robots. I’m not sure what’s going on, TBH, but it’s one of the better things we’ve stumbled across on YouTube. Anyway. I have two books to tell you about. Let’s talk about them, shall we? The Boyfriend… Read more »

Weekly Wrap-Up 2020: The Twenty Fourth

Hey There Bookworms, How are things? This weekend, my best friend got married. She and her fiance had planned a big wedding, and then COVID-19 went and ruined it. The party has been rescheduled to next March, but the date they’d originally chosen held a lot of significance for them. They opted for a low key backyard vow exchange to make things official on their original wedding date. Since travelling… Read more »

Weekly Wrap-Up 2020: The Twenty-Third

Hey There Bookworms, I took a break from my regular updates last week because I wanted to highlight some awesome romantic comedies authored by Black women that feature Black people in the starring roles. If you’re a rom-com reader, I highly encourage you to check them out! But, because of that break, I have extra books to talk about this week. BLM protests are still going strong, Coronavirus is still… Read more »
