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

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. 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: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
