WHAT I'M READING
I think I finally see the end of the reading slump tunnel! Since we last spoke, I've finished INTO THE STILL BLUE (which was a satisfying conclusion to the Under the Never Sky trilogy) and THE ASSASSIN'S BLADE, which is the bundled version of Sarah Maas' THRONE OF GLASS novellas. I guess the last doesn't totally count as reading a whole book because I've already read most of the novellas. I only borrowed the book to read the 1 novella I hadn't read (and for the little teaser of HEIR OF FIRE at the end).
I am now reading Kelley Armstrong's newest SEA OF SHADOWS.

WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW

A bunch of book people (and deserving of special mention here is YA author Ellen Oh for leading the We Need Diverse Books campaign) have been spearheading a diversity in books campaign online.
If you want a dose of inspiration, check out the #WeNeedDiverseBooks hashtag that's been trending on Twitter for the past day or two, and maybe add your own thoughts to the conversation!
Definitely check out the Tumblr for the campaign too at We Need Diverse Books to see what exactly the campaign entails. The actual campaign is set to go May 1-3 with different focuses for each day. Remember to get your social media on when May 1 rolls around.
WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO

I was skeptical about the show but after hearing much praise and seeing the crazy gif of Oliver doing insane pull-ups sent to me on multiple occasions by Tracey Neithercott, I finally caved and watched (One can only hold out for so long when faced with muscles). And I'm hooked. It's pretty interesting and I like the cast, and yes, almost every episode delivers on the
Today is the last day of Poetry Month, and so if you missed it last Friday, you should definitely check out my post Poetry & Pictures for the Tom Hiddleston reading of may i feel said he by e. e. cummings. It is something else.
Speaking of love poems and Tom Hiddleston, I finally saw Only Lovers Left Alive and it was beautiful. Quiet, moody, and surprisingly funny contemplation and reflection of love and existence. Oh and the main characters are vampires.
It's also the MEAN GIRLS 10 year Anniversary today! I remember seeing this in theaters in high school with my BFFs and actually laughing out loud at the things that went down in this movie. So much of it is still in pop culture today, and seriously, who says girls can't be funny? On Wednesdays, we wear pink. I am and I hope you are too.
