Fave Links Friday 8/2: Baby Showers, Scary Stories and Murder

If you’ve found yourself wondering where all the good writing’s gone, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite links with you on a weekly basis! It might be short fiction, it might be news articles, it might be random blog posts from me and from others!

None of these links are sponsored. I really just liked them!

Don’t forget, you can check out previous weeks’ lists in the Fave Links Friday category!

I strongly encourage you to call your representatives and tell them you won’t stand for concentration camps. You can use Common Cause to find out who your reps are and what they stand for if you aren’t sure.

The Dark History Behind the Year’s Bestselling Debut Novel

This story is Wild, y’all. Like, the murder of poachers wild. You’ll want to read this and have your mind boggled! Heads up that it does actually spoil the book later on in it, but there’s also quite a bit of racism in it so you probably won’t want to actually read the book anyway.
