She reviews 'Fall of Wrath and Ruin' by Jennifer Armentrout, sharing her mixed feelings about the book's pacing and character dynamics while recommending Kindle Unlimited for book lovers. Flex then discusses 'Pedagogy of the Oppressed' by Paolo Freire, reflecting on traditional education's limitations and the potential for oppressed groups to envision change.
