Brown Girl Reading

Hey my friends!
I hope you all are having a great week! I know I am. Nothing particularly special about it (other than warmer temperatures, thank you Jesus), I just decided to be happier this week. I'm doing things I love and working out more. Notice how those two are not the same. 
One thing that I love and don't do enough of is reading. I have loved to read since I was a little girl and my mom took me to the library every Friday. Now that I'm older, I find other things demanding the attention that reading once owned. So while I still love it, I've found that picking up a book is something I do only every couple months. I've told myself to be better and read more than a few good books this year.
 Brown Girl Dreaming has become a favorite of mine. I picked it up in Barnes and Noble, read a couple lines, and bought it immediately. It's that good y'all. Jackie Woodson does a beautiful job of telling her life story as a young African American girl growing up in the South during the 60s. And she does it in free verse. I cried several times at how wonderful she is at capturing feelings with just a few words. Ugh, so good.
Are you reading anything good? Anything that moves you? Let me know!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Oh by the way- your blog looks great! I love this outfit, casual but still very put together. Also- that purse is an amaaaaazing gift! A vintage D&B is something I would love to own one day. I'm just like you, I grew up reading a ton, but nowadays, I go through phases. I can still sit down and read for hours when I find a book I love, but I also go months without reading anything! One of my resolutions for the year was to read a book a month...haven't read any so far this year :/

    ♥ perfectly Priya
