6 books/series to read instead of watching 365 DNI (ALL by women of color!)

if you don’t know what 365 DNI is...it’s trash, to say the least. in other words, it’s a weak (but funny) attempt at erotic romance, with questionable behaviors and quite frankly, absolutely no plot. of course, i watched it and...i had a great laugh. it was just...THAT. i thought that instead of wasting two hours …

after almost 30 days of fasting, praying and looking back at our actions, ramadan has finally come to an end. was it like other ramadans? no, at least not for me. i spent it alone instead of with my family since i could not join them. it’s sad, yes, but what can i do? nothing, …

i finally read the dimple and rishi series by sandhya menon, and these are my thoughts

since i am stuck home and clearly not studying because i’ve decided to live in total denial of something called college, i spend most of my days reading books and/or talking about them. i also spend a lot of time on booktube, watching vlogs which are my favorite thing ever. so yeah, my life pretty …
