When the dictionary comes to the rescue- via Buzzfeed

“But we will say this: Anyone who spends their life sifting through how language is used also has to sift through history, and how words have been used at various points to harm, erase, or exclude. Our job is to tease language out from spin, politicking, rhetoric, and apologetics, and tell the truth about what a word means.”

Check out how one dictionary revamped its online presence in light of recent political events and quickly reminded us that it is a source of timely truth and knowledge.

Life Review: Absence explained+upcoming review preview

The lovely flowers I bought today, my half finished iced coffee and a smattering of personal and review book I feel I will NEVER get to read.

Hi all.

I thought I would step waaaay outside my normal format to give you some insight into my sporadic posting of late. Basically I was rolling along at a nice, steady pace and then WHOMP… dead end, inspiration lost. I’ve been slowly working back into reviewing  (let’s not kid ourselves, I’ve still  been reading) but I feel like a sputtering engine. I’m sure every blogger has been through this so I’m here to say “Me too. I’m with you!” Bear with me everyone! I promise that I will soon get back into my usual flow. Here is a small preview of the titles I hope to review though the end of September and early October:

The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead

Woman in the Shadows by Jane Thynne

The Ballroom by Anna Hope

Only Daughter by Anna Snoekstra

Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult 

Hag-seed by Margaret Atwood

I would love to hear your personal stories of how you overcame reviewers block (that’s a thing right?)! All tips, magic spells, positive thoughts and what not are much appreciated 🙂
