Soundtrack to My Life: Good Music

Hey everyone! Recently I watched a video on one of my favorite youtuber Lucy Moon's channel called the Soundtrack to My Life Tag. While I didn't want to necessarily answer the same questions, I really wanted to create a record of all the music I've been loving recently for both myself in the future, and for you to give me some feedback and recommendations! (I might add to this list later)
Let's jump right in!

FemLIT for Feburary: The Color Purple Review

Hey! If you didn't know, I started a feminist literature club at my school, where we read monthly books that we feel depict diverse interpretations and perspectives of women and gender across time and distance. The book for February was The Color Purple, and as I've read it, I thought I'd share my thoughts with you!

Talkin' About: Audiobooks

I listened to my first ever audiobook (except for the legendary Harry Potter ones) this week and I must say, it was an interesting experience. It was A Monster Calls read by Jason Isaacs, the person who plays Lucius Malfoy, and I really enjoyed it, but also have some regrets.

Required Reading Revisited Book Club: Go Tell it on the Mountain review

Title: Go Tell it on the Mountain
Author: James Baldwin
Genre: Historical Fiction, Classics

Blurb: Go Tell It On The Mountain, first published in 1953, is Baldwin's first major work, a semi-autobiographical novel that has established itself as an American classic. With lyrical precision, psychological directness, resonating symbolic power, and a rage that is at once unrelenting and compassionate, Baldwin chronicles a fourteen-year-old boy's discovery of the terms of his identity as the stepson of the minister of a storefront Pentecostal church in Harlem one Saturday in March of 1935. Baldwin's rendering of his protagonist's spiritual, sexual, and moral struggle of self-invention opened new possibilities in the American language and in the way Americans understand themselves. 

Me: This was January's book at the Required Reading Revisited Book Club at my local indie bookstore. 

I get it. James Baldwin is a genius, and I was late to the party. At least I came now though, right? This book was art in all its finest.
