Book Review: Rectify by Jacqueline Druga

Some people don't like Novellas, I simply adore them! When they are well crafted and don't feel rushed, they can be an awesome afternoon or late night binge read.


I first read Jacqueline Druga in a compilation of Zombie tales and really loved the tale I read, so I've been reading her stuff ever since. Her main characters are usually strong women that have to deal with real life decisions and situations in the event of a Post Apocalyptic catastrophe.

June is a mother of 3 and works at the local hospital. It's pretty typical and the humdrum of a small town hospital until they get their first case of CO-D4. Those who contract the virus are later called Codies. 

It's fast, but the government in her town seems to have it as controlled as can be when they put together teams of military men, or R-Teams. They go around town dispatching, or Rectifying those who have turned. There's even a hotline to call if you suspect a neighbor trying to take care of an infected family member.

Things take a turn for the worse when one of June's own family members becomes sick with CO-D4. Can she rectify them or will she break the law to take care of them because deep down she feels like a part of them are still in there, even after they turn. Good read all the way to end, loved the ending!

X🍉, Jae

It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Surviving A Long Term Goal

How To Reach A Long Term Goal:Write the goal downKeep doing what you need to do to achieve the goalConstantly look up things that motivate you towards your goalA little competition never hurts!Speak the goal into existenceExpect to fail, but plan to succeed I made it! Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …
