Sunday Confessions #176


Hello Sunday!

Have you seen the forecast in the PNW? I see snow in the future. Of course, I'm so low down in the valley, it probably won't hit me, but I'm crossing my fingers. I love a good snow day.

Lets recast the week.

Pride and Protest
Nikki Payne

A woman goes head-to-head with the CEO of a corporation threatening to destroy her neighborhood in this fresh and modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice by debut author Nikki Payne.

Liza B.--the only DJ who gives a jam--wants to take her neighborhood back from the soulless property developer dropping unaffordable condos on every street corner in DC. But her planned protest at a corporate event takes a turn after she mistakes the smoldering-hot CEO for the waitstaff. When they go toe-to-toe, the sparks fly--but her impossible-to-ignore family thwarts her every move. Liza wants Dorsey Fitzgerald out of her hood, but she'll settle for getting him out of her head.

At first, Dorsey writes off Liza Bennett as more interested in performing outrage than acting on it. As the adopted Filipino son of a wealthy white family, he's always felt a bit out of place and knows a fraud when he sees one. But when Liza's protest results in a viral meme, their lives are turned upside down, and Dorsey comes to realize this irresistible revolutionary is the most real woman he's ever met.

I don't know if you've already watched this Netflix show or not, but you really need to. 

The show is based on Wednesday Addams from the Addams family. As a troubled child, she is sent away to a boarding school for outcast teens where she's thrust into a murder mystery that centers around herself. 

The throw back to the previous Addams family show and movie, is heartwarmingly amazing and I can't help but chuckle. Love this show.
