this is my type of bookstore 😍 somehow my eyes found a golden ticket: The Naked Ape by Desmond Morris #checksoffbooklist #bookstore #cincinnati
so I'm reading The Sundering by RA Salvatore and one, it's genius (I might be bias because it's the first fantasy/ d&d book I've read), and two, I have different medieval voices for the characters and that just magnifies my love for this book 🤷🏾‍♀️😂
I've welcomed 4 new books to the fam this week:

1. The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur 🌻(thx you, you brilliant beautiful being)
2. The Defining Decade by Meg Jay ❤️ (thx kaylakakes)
3. The Companions: The Sundering, Book 1 by R.A. Salvatore ⚔️ (thx dear)
4. My business law book 🙃 (thx college)
NEW BLOG POST: "Book Review #1: When Breath Becomes Air" The book is by Paul Kalanithi and I recommend it to everyone #linkinbio #readmore 🌺 (I was supposed to post yesterday, yet #thesunandherflowers cradled me to sleep after a long day, and thus I slept like a baby lol)
TOMORROW'S BLOG POST: When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi 📖 This book right here tho ✔️... I read it at the best worst time possible. I read books for knowledge and just because, so it is rare to find a book where the author's words are aiding your wounds whilst guiding you through a relatable situation. The last book I read that deeply resonated with me was #TheAlchemist by Paulo Coelho. (Which I wrote about in my article "3 Books That Have Sprouted Change" #linkinbio). More on Kalanithi's memoir in my blog post tomorrow! Link in bio 🌺

lol last one for a while ... I usually don't write unless I'm far left or far right on my emotional spectrum and since life has been mediocre I haven't been inspired to. But you have to create your own vision by looking for inspiration (nature, tumblr & pinterest). I no longer can wait for my happiness or sadness to dictate the quality of poems I write. Lol so on that note I'll be writing more soon 📝 •

alas, years of hoarding poems in my journals, iPhone notes, Word, and in the designated folder in my head (I'm weird I know). I decided to take a few poems out of the old dusty cellar. (I did have a tumblr where I posted some poems but only a handful of peeps knew 🤷🏾‍♀️) •

Out of all the quotes that resonate with me, hers is my number 1 because it's the epitome of the person I'm growing to be: optimistic and altruistic. It's also the quote I have on the homepage of my website.
