Happy Valentine’s Day week! As a single person who has spent the better part of the last year alone in my apartment, I have read my fair share of romance novels. Got to keep the spark alive, right?

Welcome to Culturally Consumed, a weekly round up of everything I’m reading, watching, and wondering about! This week’s consumption includes a new-to-me show from the creator of Downton Abbey, a daily anti-racism newsletter, and a lot of Elizabeth Gilbert… With the start of Black History Month, I’ve signed up for the 28 Days of Black […]

January may have felt like the longest month on Earth, but at least it gave me time to get through some books! I read six books last month with my ultimate goal to read 52 books in 2021, so I’d say I’m off to a pretty good start. I’m also pretty proud of myself for […]
