Not That Bad: Dispatches from rape culture edited by Roxane Gay

35068524

Trigger warning: Not That Bad is a short story collection about rape culture. Please make sure that you’re okay with reading about such difficult topics before you pick it up. Also, to review this book I’ll also talk about these things. I want my blog to be a safe space, so please don’t read this review if you feel like it will affect your mental health negatively. Lots of love!

October Bullet Journal Set-up

It’s almost time for October!! I’m not a Halloween person but I’m still an all-in autumn-lover. And October is the queen of fall. To boost my autumnal mood, I recently got a large cinnamon chai -scented WoodWick candle that crackles as it burns and I have been stocking up in cozy sweaters. Obviously I had to match my bullet journal layout for October with the autumnal deliciousness.

I rarely devote a full spread for welcoming the next month but this time I got an idea that I wanted to try out. I’m planning to add quick notes and link them to the relevant day on the outside of the borders. I also added a quote by J.K Rowling which is probably quite difficult to read from the picture:

“I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a book.”

I’m clearly anticipating a book filled October!

3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 1

The ah-mazing Arden @ Phantom Paper tagged me in the 3 Day Quote Challenge a month back. Thank you so much for the tag! If you haven’t yet discovered that Phantom Paper is one of the most marvelous book bloggers out there, you really should hop over to her blog to see for yourself (after you’ve read this post, of course lol).

I’m so happy that I was tagged in this because I love quotes. I always try to have my phone close by when I read so that I can make a memo of any quotes I happen to come across. Kindle books are pretty cool in this regard as I can highlight books and the quotes are automatically stored in Goodreads.

I’ll be sharing some of my favourite quotes in the next three days!
