I hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving this year! I know 2020 has been tough on everyone, and so I just want everyone to be able to safely enjoy Thanksgiving with friends and family.

That being said, I’m hoping to have a blog update coming up. I know I have been radio silent this month, but there’s a reason for that. However, for now let’s enjoy some quality time whether you’re spending it with family or not. Either way, just stay safe.

Needing Some Time

I need a break, I’m going to take the next couple of weeks off so I can rest, relax, and write. I have been struggling with writing my reviews, and it has nothing to do with the books themselves, I’ve just been dealing with writer’s block to a certain extent.

I hope to be returning to the blog soon, and I’ll make sure to have a whole line-up of fantastic books to share with you all. If you want to follow me on social media I’ll share the links below.

My Thoughts on The Golden Girls

1364618_web1_GoldenGirls

The Golden Girls is a classic TV show about four friends living together in a home in Miami, Florida. These friends are not hot models, but loveable sarcastic grandmothers. Strong-willed Dorothy, spacey Rose, lusty Southern belle Blanche and matriarch Sophia, Dorothy’s mom, occasionally clash but are there for one another in the end.

I didn’t watch this show growing up. I watched what my parents watched on TV. My dad watched westerns like Gunsmoke and Bonanza. My mom liked watching baseball and tennis. So it wasn’t until my last stay at the mental hospital, that I realized why so many love The Golden Girls.

I binged The Golden Girls on Hulu, and I realized the show hits on several topics that are still relevant to senior citizens today. The discussions of aging, being an independent woman and finding love after the loss of a spouse. Even if you under the age of 40, these issues facing women today can seem daunting.

However, this classic TV show makes me feel bittersweet at points in the show. The Golden Girls sometimes makes me wish I had a better relationship with my grandparents. These issues are something I have been working on both internally through research and deep-thinking, and externally by discussing how I feel with my fiance.

I think what makes The Golden Girls so predominant to so many is how the characters help their viewers connect to a maternal figure in their life. It helps to grieve as well as keeping you laughing and entertained throughout.

The Future of Elisha’s Book Review

I know there has been a considerable gap between reviews this year. I am aware of this, and I have been thinking about what possible solutions there are. I have started a crowdfunding page, and I am trying to be more active on my social media accounts to try and network with other readers and bloggers.

I hope that I can get the momentum going once again in time to have enough of a back catalog, so when I go back to work in the fall, the blog won’t be a significant concern. However, with the unpredictableness this year has already been, I have not been making any solid plans.

All I hope for is to keep reading and reviewing when I am able. My mental health has been more fragile than usual this year, considering the current events going on in the world. I am still going to read the books I want to read and the books I am asked to read by authors and publishers alike.

Regarding upcoming book reviews, I am excited to announce my comic book weeks may be returning. I have discovered so many ways to access comics that I feel comfortable bringing this back to the blog.

I hope everyone is doing well and is staying safe. Thanks for reading this long update, but there were important things I wanted to bring up in a blog post.
