Weekend Reading 2.26.22

This week was heavy. I feel sad and powerless and ended up just taking it really easy yesterday. I read an entire (very distracting) book and then I watched a romcom (I Want You Back on Amazon with Jenny Slate – TBH I didn’t love it but it was cute enough). It will probably be more of that over the weekend… just resting and relaxing and trying not to do too much doomscrolling. I hope you are able to do the same thing… and if you’re feeling heavy and downtrodden too, I’m sending you a giant hug. Xo

    Hi Grace! Your weekend reading is always a bright spot in my weekend, especially in these difficult times. Book-wise, I just finished Anatomy of a Scandal (saw it listed on one of your links about books-to-be-shows); it was excellent. And also, A Familiar Sight. Both up your alley, I think. cheers

    Thank you for posting the Vogue article about Texas. I am a lifelong Texas and I, like so many others I know in this state, continue to be outraged by our state government. While of course there are some backwards people in this state, I truly believe we would be a blue state if it weren’t for the blatant gerrymandering put in place by our government. It makes me feel so sad and hopeless that our government continues to abuse and disenfranchise its own citizens. Part of me would love to move to a more progressive state but another part of me wants to stay in Texas and make it better. This is my home and for all its faults, it’s also a beautiful, fun, and diverse state. It makes me sad that the media makes us all out to be so backwards when it’s so much more nuanced than that. Thank you for understanding this and sharing the article with your followers.

      I can only imagine how frustrating that must be!
