Check out my actual friend’s book shelve. feels all the folks i make friends with where we met working ya bond so much that we all meet up in other lands. there is something about working beside somebody. #saturday via @shibuya.mika work is love made visible like #khalilgibran said. #readers #readerread #dailyhabitscreateyou #octaviabutler wrote out her vision for herself. she created herself as that and became her destiny as a big writer. a game changer. you don’t read any book of hers and stay the same. i would like to swap books again izzy now that the summer is over. can we do a take two? readers seems to always pick up these reading if only for a couple minutes. just to relax and readjust. it’s like a yoga spine twist that resuscitates you. as important as water and ya meditations!!

Wow, guys!!! this week has kicked me a bit, and i am just done tonight 😯 so here’s my idea of a perfect wednesday “time to recharge” evening... comfy crochet blanket ✅, honey ginger latte ✅, and the last 80 pages of my irl book club selection for friday ✅. and a binge of rupaul’s drag race playing in the background (one of our guilty pleasure shows 🤩). what are you up to tonight? how is the week treating you? and has anyone read this book? dm me... i need to discuss this with someone 😳...i have so many thoughts 💭💭💭💭

What if men got pregnant? - is the question octavia butler explores in her hugo and nebula award winning novella 'bloodchild'. diversity is not always best represented in science fiction, and octavia butler's writing is therefore refreshingly unique. bloodchild tells the tale of a group of humans named terrans, who left earth to escape persecution. they now live in a symbiotic relationship with an alien race called the tlic (on specially demarcated reserves on their planet), who in order to survive and reproduce plant their larvae inside the bodies of the terrans (usually men, so that women are free to reproduce their own kind). read it if: this is a great but not easy read - octavia butler raises questions of choice, reproductive slavery and immigration (are these the choices any future migration of humans into space may have to make? what compromises are immigrants today making to assimilate with a local population?). there is a ceasarean birth scene that is not for the lighthearted - i am a bit queasier than most though. this novella is free to read on amazon kindle, so its a great chance to pick up some thought provoking science fiction.

we are back again to introduce you to the second member of our blogging team, the beautiful riziki! 'hi everyone! my name is riz and i am a postgraduate literature student, drama enthusiast and massive nerd. my passion lies in african-american literature, especially science-fiction and the way in which its concepts or tropes interact with ideas of race. literature has always played a massive part in my life and i've always believed that it gives everyone a voice, no matter who they are or where they've come from. i'm excited to be a part of the btm bloggers and get some important and interesting conversations started!'"

"choose your #leaders with #wisdom and forethought.
to be led by a coward is to be #controlled by all that the coward #fears.
to be led by a fool is to be led by the #opportunists who #control the fool.
to be led by a thief is to offer up your most precious treasures to be #stolen.
to be led by a liar is to ask to be told #lies.
to be led by a #tyrant is to sell yourself and those you #love into #slavery."

Lessons from #earthseed, #yansa, and beloved #octaviabutler . embrace change. there are blessings beyond the discomfort.

comment 1 star 64 Yesterday

Beware:
ignorance 
protects itself.
ignorance
promotes suspicion.
suspicion
engenders fear.
fear quails,
irrational and blind,
or fear looms,
defiant and closed.
blind, closed,
suspicious, afraid,
ignorance
protects itself,
and protected,
ignorance grows.

Tl;dr: kindred makes you question whether or not everyone deserves to be saved. it challenges your moral fiber and pushes you to the edge of exhaustion. octavia butler uses a mix of fantasy and reality to portray a neo-slave narrative that elicits feelings of mental whiplash and unavoidable frustration as your travel between 1970s los angeles and pre-civil war maryland. if you had the opportunity to go back in time and change the course of history -- your history -- would you? would you step in or play the role of conflicted bystander? these are the questions the characters in this book are forced to confront and ones you should be glad you don’t have to. #kindred #octaviabutler [ ]

feels like: reliving my recurring childhood nightmare where i thought a s***e trader was hiding in my bedroom closet after my parents made me watch roots at nine years old.
my favorite little darling: “that educated didn’t mean smart. he had a point. nothing in my education or knowledge of the future had helped me to escape. yet in a few years an illiterate runaway named harriet tubman would make nineteen trips into this country and lead three hundred fugitives to freedom.” [ ]
