What Else Have I Been Up To
For Fangirlish, I contributed a travel article that will make you want to pack up your bags and go on a bookish adventure! Check out 17 Bookstores Every Reader Should Visit in Their Lifetime to see where you might want to plan your next vacation.
I also rounded up a bunch of interesting book releases coming out in September into 12 New Release Books On Our Radar This Month.
Around the Blogosphere
Pamela Nicole discusses what she loves about Ecuador! This photo heavy post has me imagining a trip to Ecuador! Such a fun post.
Over at Rethinking Life, there are some musing about bananas and other fruits. As someone who loves fruit, I can tell you, the struggle is real!
The Daydreaming Bookworm talks about if she’s growing out of YA. There is a definitely a formula for young adult books and sometimes the point you are at in your life just doesn’t fit that mould.
Poppy’s Best of Books asks if it is okay to reread books. I don’t typically reread books because there is so much out there to read, but there certain books that I feel get a permanent place on my shelf.
Thirty on Tap posted five tips for overcoming hostess neurosis. All very true, and for the record, hosting events is harder than it looks! Respect the host, people!
Becca and Books discusses libraries. She talks about why they rock and why we hate them. Really? People hate libraries? Why?
THE FEM posted Speak Up: The Perks of Being a Bystander by Angel Cezanne. A vey interesting essay that makes very valid point. Visit the blog and give it a read.
An article from 2012, but still completely relevant. BrainPickings.org published Zadie Smith’s 10 Rules from Writing.
For anyone obsessed with everything pumpkin flavored, DAVID’sTEA posted this DIY pumpkin tea set. It kinda takes pumpkin obsessed to a new level.
Everywhere Else On the Internet
Slate talks about the science of trauma and what it can tell us about trigger warnings. If you want a second view on the same topic, you can check out this New York Times piece, also about the use of trigger warnings in an academic setting.
The Establishment published an article about the love between a woman and her dog. This story is one that I could relate to because I have a dog as well that I love with my entire being. It’s a very moving story, one that reminded me of Lily and the Octopus.
The New York Times has made it official, the printed book is here to stay. Is anyone else relieved? I am.
Tim Gunn wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post about how designers refuse to make clothes to fit an American woman. (Yes, this is that Tim Gunn from Project Runway.) It’s an enlightening read that I should be required reading of everyone in the fashion world.
Despite what we may think, diversity in the media hasn’t really changed according to the Associated Press. Do we really need more studies about this people? Take these numbers and do something about it!
Apparently its sherbet not sherbert. Smithsonian Magazine reports that Americans have been saying the name of this tasty treat wrong for generations.
Mic showcased a thought-provoking photo essay from a survivor of sexual assault. These imagines might be triggering for some readers.
That’s it for this week’s Sunday Post! Were there any articles you read that you think I should check out this week? Send them my way!
