discussing through midnight

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a weekly discussion post of all things bookish (though sometimes not-so-bookish) ——— Throughout your life, you’re gonna have a whole lot of haters. So why be one to yourself too? STOP the self-hate and START loving yourselves, y’all. No prince in shining armor is going to notice how much you’re hurting and how “beautifully broken” you are and rescue you. You have to be your own hero in this story. And you should […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a weekly discussion post of all things bookish (though sometimes not-so-bookish) ——— Alright, this is me we’re talking about so by now we all know when Larissa does a discussion that it either doesn’t relate to books at all, or does so in some very roundabout way but always has some sort of feministic angle. Fuck yeah. Now that we got that established let’s get into my (inevitably long) addition to Discussing Through Midnight. Which is […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a weekly discussion post of all things bookish (though sometimes not-so-bookish) ——— Not going to lie, this discussion is a lot less book oriented and has a lot more of those unrealistic  societal expectations vibes. Today I’m going to attempt to analyze the media enforced societal construct  of the “perfect body.” Though it certainly exists with males too, as I am a female and have personal experience I will be focusing on the […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— Two days ago, I published my review of The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand. It’s a book about suicide, grief and healing – and it got me thinking. More specifically, all the comments on that review (all of which were awesome and I love you guys) got me thinking*. The Last Time, obviously, will be a tough book for some due to personal […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— Today we’re going I’m going to attempt to discuss an difficult and ever so present in our modern day society issue: internalized misogyny. I consider this concept to be defined as misogynistic beliefs held by females to other females. It’s based on negative stereotypes and sexism rampant and perpetuated in society.  Basically it’s misogynistic behavior done by women themselves.  It’s pure girl hate and is very toxic in nature. Slut shaming […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— What popped up in your mind when you read that blog post title? Kickassery? Badassery? We’ve heard all the synonyms. More often than not, the word “hero” is used to describe those special characters who can knock their opponent down with the throw of their fist in an action-fueled novel. It is the word to describe those who can handle guns and lead some government rebellion in a dystopian world. It […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— Earlier this year, Larissa wrote a post called Importance of YA which everyone should read if they haven’t already, because it’s an amazing post. Today I just want to say that I completely agree with her, and I want to add some more reasons to the list of why YA is so important. Everyone knows the typical YA heroine – she’s shy, socially awkward and bookish […]
