Finished the audio version on my flight to LA and honestly recommend it to anyone who wants a nice foray into nonfiction. Such an easy and timely read about possibly the first time a woman challenged a man of high stature from Kentucky, Colonel Breckinridge, in court over a breach of promise. Back in the late 1800s, a woman could sue a man for breach of promise if he had promised to marry her before they consummated and then broke it off. Mind you, this trial was before women could even vote and it really was used to launch a women’s movement in the early twentieth century, possibly backed by women of high society to provoke this change. The book also paints a society that allows men to basically do whatever they please, super interesting. Madeline Pollard, plaintiff, risks being taken to a home of ill repute if she does not win her case. Her chastity and behavior is put on trial, and it is juicy. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟

Just finished Dread Nation by Justina Ireland! (Well, at 10:00 p.m. last night to be exact 😄)
Picture the era when the North won the Civil War, and the South lay in absolute ruin, the beginnings of the Reconstruction period set forth. And though life will forever change for the better and the worse, all is morphed and disintegrated into nothing. Now picture a blank space. And there, in that blank space, was supposed to be the history we all know. Why is it taken off? Because zombies invaded the narrative, and now what should have been a bloody and successful Civil War turned into a seize-fire in order to prevent the annihilation of the U.S.
Life in the 1870’s is now built in fear and supposed safety. One major piece to sustain a somewhat peaceful life is by forcing African-Americans and Native-Americans to be taught in combat schools to fight the dead. And that is where we’re thrust into this new alternate reality of the U.S. with combat student, Jane McKeene.
In this society Ireland creates, we venture with Jane through the series of rules and lectures students are subjected to, where no free will is reigned and only control of rich, white people roams the plantations of a “now-free” country. After reading this book, it’s the same damn thing as slavery, just glossed over with new laws that “help” former slaves and Native Americans.
Our heroine is supposed to be one great character, but Jane is barely withstanding when it comes to being labeled as a “remembered character”. Frankly almost ALL characters in this story are ones that don’t leave you thinking about them 🤷♂️. At least for me of course. The only one I really liked was Katherine, she was great and layered and everything a main character needs to have for readers to sympathize with. But who do we end up with? Plain-old Jane. Though Jane is great for a badass warrior and knowledge and other things African-Americans were banned from doing, I didn’t like her personality. The history was excellent, I absolutely adored the hidden marks of actual history with new history 😍, so for all you history junkies, this book is for you!

I already knew what was going to happen in the end-credit scene because the movie came out A MONTH LATER in the UK 🙃 So of course I got spoiled lmao. Whatever, it was kind of obvious anyway. This scene still gave me chills though. That pause and silence HHHHH. Fuck ugh I already miss my bbygirl Hope 😭😭😭💔💔 And I’m really curious how Scott gets out of the quantum realm.
