Teach Yourself Islam - Ruqaiyyah Waris Maqsood The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald

Hello invisible readers!


May I start with acknowledging that I am surprised that I have 18 followers. Thank you so much for reading and accepting to have my content on your dashboards. I am quite grateful.


Here is another blogpost of Broken Promises. I haven't posted any reviews and I have not really read anything that I wish to post a review on. This past week was the last few days for a very important, and spiritual month in my religion and therefore, I have been focusing on reflecting and learning more about my religion. ANYWAYS, it is just to say that I have been busy and perhaps my reading priorities did not lay where I thought they would.  

I understand the importance of not forcing religious content upon viewers who may have a variety of spiritual backgrounds. However, if you are interested in gaining an overview on any religion, I recommend the Teach Yourself Series. If any of the other books are as informative as the one I read, then it is worth a shot.


I am also just finishing up my super secret series. I had to force myself to pick it up again, which may be telling about how my review will go. I am really excited to just get a post up about it and be done with it!


Finally, I have started reading the Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald ... and I am already struggling to understand it. I regret not learning it in a classroom environment; perhaps, it is because I am too used to critical thinking being exclusive to academia and I am scared that if my review does not capture the symbolism and the literary devices-- that then I have failed. On the other hand, Pat Peoples has kinda ruined it for me (once again, thanks a lot. Grrr.)


Feel free to comment on what you are looking forward to this weekend :) . Monday is BC Day and I have just finished a contract position so it is going to be time for me to re-orient myself and reflect.


That's it from me. I can't wait to get back to you with a review (squeal) xox. S,
