Saturday Reads: Edition #1

I think it’s fitting that the first post on my new blog is all about sharing what I’ve loved from other people. I’ve been, albeit it on and off again, a blogger since 2012, which makes this my eighth year of being a part of a wider community that is just so filled with knowledge, ideas and opinions that are shaping our worlds today.

Over the past six months, and at least definitely since 2019 whipped into being, I’ve started to pay more attention to what content is being shared online. What people are reading, what people are debating, what we are learning. So bi-weekly (or, in layman’s terms because I still don’t understand how there is two meanings to this phrase, every two weeks), I’ll be sharing some of my favourite posts from around the internet. And sometimes having a little blather while I’m at all.

So what have I been reading recently?

This think-piece about success and arrival fallacy by The New York Times left me in a pool of tears. Having just successfully landed my dream job, I’ve arrived at a ‘what now?’ point in my life, and I’ve honestly never felt so lost. This article was a great anchor in helping me step forward past that.

Similarly, I read this old post from The Every Girl, one of my new favourite websites, about identifying if you’re in a career rut and what you can do to fix it.

Nick shared the romance books she’s read so far this year and loved. I don’t think I’ll ever get enough of Devil’s Daughter by Lisa Kleypas!

The Every Girl also does these amazing tech backgrounds you can download for free every month, as does Girl and Grey if you’re a subscriber (and it’s worth it too!)

Through Sharni at Girl and Grey, I discovered this piece on making friends as an adult and why do we find it so hard from Wit & Delight.

This fantastic article on The Atlantic about how adults are getting caught up in teenagers Airdropping memes to each other is exactly what you need to read to know our world is in the best of hands.

I adore Classical Memes, but this twitter user’s thread of mansplaining in art is one of the best things I’ve ever seen.

There are even more rom-coms that I need in my life, as proved by this listicle on Bustle. Personally I’m excited for Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey, Waiting on Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey and The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez. I’m currently reading Our Stop too!

Tweet Cute, the upcoming YA novel from Bustle’s editor Emma Lord had its’ cover reveal, and I am dying for it. It’s about two teens who start a viral Twitter war over a grilled cheese recipe, all the while unknowingly falling in love on an app. It’s You’ve Got Mail meets To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Work perks allowed me to read a very early copy of this, and I’m excited that we are hopefully going to see it on Aussie shelves as well!
