I just love Virgie Tovar! She is brilliant and humorous and finds a way to hug me and punch me in the gut at the same time. This book tells us it is okay to take up space in the world. It‘s been an interesting journey to immerse myself in the #bodypositive world while working toward improving my health. NOT having a weight goal, but having a goal to be healthier in the body I have, is so freeing. Tovar has been a wonderful part of that journey.

3.5 or 4 ⭐ for me. Reminded me a lot of V for Vendetta, for the way a character is recalibrated from societal norms (in this case, cultural control of women's bodies, e.g. beauty/fashion/weight loss industry, male gaze, etc.) via a tortuous process. But the blurb compares it to Fight Club and the author includes Fight Club in the acknowledgements. I've only seen the movie, but I didn't see much similarity... 🤷‍♀️ maybe I should read the book.

Cinfhen We are doing a BIG buddy read of Fight Club in March #SpringFling! I can add you to the list (edited) 9mo
llwheeler @Cinfhen Oh, perfect! Yes please do, I'll join in 😊 9mo

This is an approachable, interesting personal growth and transformation book. It is focused on sexual activity, so be prepared—it‘s frank and detailed. You may blush at the beginning, but once you get comfortable with her writing style and rhythm, you‘ll find good, actionable strategies. I just wish it was more intersectional and inclusive.

And now, for something completely different. It‘s part memoir, part inspiration, and part...ahem...instruction. I think. We‘ll see.

TheBookHippie I met her, at bookcon, she's a hoot. 1y
Copwithabook @TheBookHippie I‘d love to hear her do a live reading. The book makes me want to be friends with her 1y
TheBookHippie @Copwithabook She is definitely a good friend candidate she was so fun to talk to. Such a confidence builder she's quite the leader. I follow her on Instagram it's hilarious. Extremely talented writer. 1y

Finished this on an airplane, so I guess I was technically #highforthis. Found her journey of addressing her trauma and her body and slowly coming to acceptance incredibly moving and emotional. Shines a light on how her society views women who don‘t fit cultural ideals. Acknowledges hasn‘t yet reach place of being body positive but working to get there. #aprella #booked2018 #bodypositive

BarbaraTheBibliophage Never fear. You‘ll still have entries from the books in our second season giveaway! Great job! 👏🏻🎉📚 1y
Blaire @emilyhaldi @Reviewsbylola I loved some of bad feminist, but other essays I skimmed so I don‘t watch enough tv/movies to get the context. I‘d heard several interviews with her about writing this and hearing her talk about it was moving. But certainly not for everyone. 1y

Big Bones | Laura Dockrill

Thank you Tina Mories and Hot Key Books for this copy of Big Bones by Laura Dockrill for review. I‘ve heard a lot of good about Dockrill though I‘ve never read her before. I look forward to reading this one as it sounds like a book all women should read at least once. Have you seen this one? It‘s on sale now! #feminist #bodypositive #bodyposi #contemporaryfiction #contemporary #bookblogger #bookish #booklover

She's Come Undone | Wally Lamb

I did not expect to be mesmerized by this story, but it‘s always a pleasant surprise when books hit you like this. She‘s Come Undone is the story of Dolores‘s life spent battling her demons, both real and figurative. It‘s heartbreaking and sometimes hard to read, but ultimately a story that will leave its impression on you after you put it down.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
