Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery
Anne of the Island and Tales of Avonlea - L.M. Montgomery
Each Anne Shirley story is better than the last! You see growth, you root for her with her schooling, and you so want her to decide on Gilbert!
This story always makes me smile, and this is probably the tenth time I've read it. Anne really finds herself in this book. All of her friends are settling down, and in that time it was naturally expected at a certain age. She was of that age and eyes were on her to find someone. 
The ending is my favorite part. I am a sucker for sappy love!
Since I have not read further on in the series, I look forward to reading the next book sometime soon!

Shakespeare and Elizabethan England’s Royal Court Political Marketing

I read all of Shakespeare & love his plays! Seen them all, many a time, in many languages! Yet researching the most intriguing history of Elizabethan 16th, 17th century England & Royal Court Political Marketing I had to ask d obvious: Who wrote Shakespeare? #Shakespeare and Elizabethan England’s Royal Court Political Marketing. What do we really know about Shakespeare?#art#Education, Power of #Mind, Learning from the Imperial Elizabethan England about mind-manipulation, and Shakespeare’s cultural heritage. 

Learning from the Imperial Elizabethan England about -manipulation, , and Shakespeare's cultural heritage

by Nataša Pantović

Was "the Stratford man" a front for a powerful literary group of writers that included the English contemporary writers, Bacon, and Marlowe, etc. used by the Queen Elizabeth and her predecessors for their political marketing, and why does this matter today?

No letters or signed manuscripts written by Shakespeare survive. The appearance of Shakespeare's six authenticated signatures, indicate that he was illiterate or barely literate.

Shakespeare's six surviving signatures have often been cited as evidence of his illiteracy

Shakespeare's six authenticated signatures

So when you read Lady Macbeth’s “Come, you spirits / That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,” during your 10th grade English class, or: “Make thick my blood, Stop up th’ access and passage to remorse.” do you ever wonder, is this how it was originally written?

Shakespeare's authorship was first questioned in the middle of the 19th century by Joseph C. Hart in “The Romance of Yachting” (1848). Hart argued that the plays were written by many different authors. Shakespeare has never overseen the publication of his plays in his retirement. So controversial, by 1884, the question had produced more than 250 books.

Dear Martin by Nic Stone
Dear Martin - Nic Stone
One of the most powerful reads I've read.
Maybe because it hits too close to home.
With all the injustice happening in the world, this story was a vivid reality of what life is like for African-Americans, told by an African-American. People need to hear the stories to bring about change. We all need to stop turning a blind eye to any injustices that constantly surround our lives. These horrible things don't just happen in the US. It happens here in Canada and more. You would think racial attacks were a thing of the past, but they're not.
This book may be labeled as fiction, but it couldn't have felt more real.
Read it. Let it affect you. Then change.

FInding Southern Comfort by Barbara Lohr
Finding Southern Comfort: A Heartwarming Prequel (Windy City Romance) - Barbara Lohr
A romance is what the bookish heart needed for Valentine's Day.
It didn't disappoint either! It had every element that I look for in a romance. It had great characters with chemistry. There was side elements that deepened the plot. There was passion in parts.
Still it wasn't the best romance that I have ever read.
Sometimes you weren't sure who was telling the story though. Was Harper the protagonist or Cameron?! At one point, I actually stopped reading and was like, "what the heck, I thought I was reading from her point of view." So that I wasn't a fan of. Nor was I fond of the loser making an appearance at the end of the story. Totally unnecessary.
In the end, it was a solid story that ended up coming together. Yeah, I will probably read the next book in the series.
