Hooray for Hollywood & Pride

There’s always that defining moment (or a few of them) when you realize you have to break away from what your parents want and do your own thing — even if this isn’t in their best interest. I’m reading a parenting guide for work right now, and the author talks about how parents need to know when […]

Friends Who Write Diversely... | Dive Into Diversity, Magan - […] thanks to authors/bloggers/Twitter goddesses Dahlia Adler (Under the Lights) and Katherine Locke (Second Position) for being so game for today’s post. Rather Be […]

Wendy @ Book Scents - I totally agree with you! I loved seeing both Josh and Van’s story unfold and seeing that they’re not the pair that ends up together. I loved seeing their arcs and thought all the characters were so well developed. I kind of want to see more of what Josh does after!

Kailia Sage - I need to read this book as soon as possible! Everyone is raving about this book and I love the premise!

Alexa S. - I 100% agree with your thoughts on Under the Lights! It was such a delight to read about both Van and Josh, to really get to know them beyond what we learn in Behind the Scenes. And Dahlia wrote both their stories so well too!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I really, really need to read Dahlia Adler’s books. I have Behind the scenes ( I think I picked it up after your review) and still haven’t read it. And I really want to read this too.

Alexa S. - Basically, Rachel’s post makes me want to fly to LA immediately. Warm sunshine, palm trees, gorgeous bright colors, Hollywood history? SIGN ME UP.

Ginger @ GReads! - When my sister lived in LA, I took advantage of a free place to stay and made a few visits there. I completely fell in love with the history of Hollywood! One of my most favorite museums I’ve ever been to (and I’ve been to A LOT in Europe! lol) is the History of Hollywood on Sunset Blvd. It’s not a huge, fancy museum, but wow did it capture me. This was such a neat post to read, reminding me a lot about my visits there. Thanks for sharing this!

alice-jane - I love this post! It’s so neat to see the history behind places and connect stories with places. I love California and its weather, but I haven’t seen LA like this. Also, I’m super excited for Starstruck now since I love history + old glamor, too.

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - Aww, I love this! It’s so cool to see all the places and to hear more about the history from Rachel. (And I totally agree with her about the best part of leaving NYC being the ability to run so many errands so quickly!)

I had no idea Birth of a Nation was shot in Griffith Park, that’s so weird! I remember watching that movie in a film class in college and just being dumbstruck. Also, the idea of Olive Moore and D.W. Griffith together makes me laugh.

How weird is it that we both did virtual tours on our blogs today?
