Hello! Pop culture and entertainment rule my life. I decided that it would be fun to do a little recap of all the media I consume each month:
“All my life I’ve had a body worth commenting on and if living in my skin has taught me anything it’s that if it’s not your body, it’s not yours to comment on.”
“Riots. not diets!”
I devoured Dumplin‘, by Julie Murphy, when I first heard of it a few years ago. Fat main character? Sold! Puddin’, the companion novel, was no different. Instead of following the trials and tribulations of Dolly Parton obsessed Willowdean, we hear from two complete opposites: dancer Callie Reyes and Miss Positivity, Millie Michalchuk.
I read 95 books in 2017. 95 BOOKS! This was the best reading I’ve ever had. I read diversely—both in authors and subject matter. I branched out of my comfort zone and discovered I kind of like mysteries? Yes, most of the books I read are Young Adult, but the atmosphere there is so inspiring. If I made a list of my favorite books of the year it would probably be over 50 books long. So, I decided to do a list of my favorite authors I read this year instead. The list will be in alphabetical order and some authors are listed with more than one book. Let’s get started!
