Yesterday I had planned on reviewing an incredible dystopian romance but then I read the latest Trump & climate-related headlines & unfortunately saw some loose parallels.
The sad/infuriating truth is that the Trump administration is committing egregious offenses left & right & I see too many people I know & love support him—to say nothing of the people I see at the grocery store or whose yards I drive past.
The ICE-related headlines earlier this week were particularly horrifying.
(Of course I can hate Trump & also have to contend with my own white privilege, which means—as others have said, that I get angry about these things—often without being touched by them personally—& then retreat retreat retreat into something more comfortable.)
This is a book blog/romancestagram account & I will continue to post bookish pics. Like this one. Because these books make me happy & I see so much value in what they have to say.
I agree with what others have noted: the more time I spend reading in this genre the more I think it’s working harder for us than any other.
I’ll also continue to be committed to voting this administration out in November, to examining myself for biases & privilege, to raising kids who do the same, & to supporting AOC & POC in their creative endeavors & in their Human Rights. (& in the latter in particular, I don’t want to oversell myself: I need to *act* much much more instead of just using the words.)
I just wanted to share where I’m at.
Give me that HEA, please.
