You may have noticed that I didn’t post a recap and discussion last week. I could tell you excuses involving my exams or work or balancing school and a social life, but truth be told, I just wasn’t feeling episode nine.
If you’ve read my previous recaps, you already know I’m not a big fan of Zoey and Luca’s relationship. All these issues they’re going through just seem to further prove my point that they shouldn’t be together in the first place. I hope they break up before season three because I can not take any more of this foolishness.
For this prompt, I was thinking along the lines of bedtime stories or books that give you peace of mind. These are two books I hold dear.
This first one was the first bedtime story I ever had. As a kid, my mom would read me Bible stories until I fell asleep. Then, when I was old enough to read for myself, I would read a chapter every night before bed.
I have been in love with Rudy Francisco’s poetry ever since I first listened to “Scars/To the New Boyfriend.” His writing is just so raw and honest. I feel like I can really understand what he’s been through, even if my past experiences have been completely different.
The books I chose for this prompt were both recommended to me by some of my favorite teachers. The first one comes from my middle school English teacher, Mrs. Macon. She introduced me to so much literature during that time period.
