I just started this book and I am already in love? #MustRead #TooFatTooSluttyTooLoud - #TheRiseoftheUnrulyWoman by #AnneHelenPetersen ?? |This book is very insightful?
"I love my body, and I would never change anything about it..I'm not asking you to like my body. I'm just asking you to let me be me. Because I'm going to influence a girl who does look like me, and I want her to feel good about herself."- #SerenaWilliams #Feminism #READTHISNOW

Natasha.C.Barnes Aaaa I've got to read this book.... 2y
Jess7 Yes, yes you should @Natasha.C.Barnes -It's AWESOME! Excited to hear your thoughts. I borrowed this copy from the library, but I think this is going to be one of those books #INEEDtoOWN 🙋🏻💕 #unrulywomen #proudfeminist #strongwomen #buzzfeed #opinionated (edited) 2y
mrozzz Yessssss 2y
stacybmartin Just got this one from the library - now I can't wait to start! 2y
Jess7 Super excited to hear your thoughts @stacybmartin and to see if you love it as much as I do! I'm past the intro and on to the part about Serena Williams. I just can't get enough! #Feminism is so important and I love that Petersen decided to tackle this subject. If I had a quarter for every time I heard someone say such and such woman was "too..." (fill in the blank) I would be rich! #ProudFeminist 2y

My #LetsHyggeSwap package from @Captivatedbybooks was delivered today! I'm super excited to unwrap it on 9/20.

Also pictured are my #CurrentReads : #WhatHappened by #HRC & #TooFatTooSluttyTooLoud by #AnneHelenPetersen :

#Buzzfeed writer Petersen offers an accessible, analytical look at #opinionated, brazen, #unruly #femalecelebrities and how they are pushing the boundaries of what it means to be an “acceptable” woman. | #Feminism #ImwithHer

Jess7 This post also works for Day 19: #Stranger - #AwesomeAutumnBooks because the first page excerpt of this book (pictured above) discusses the writer's experience with #strangers on Election Day when they congratulated her for exercising her #civicduty by voting for the first woman presidential candidate of the United States (edited) 2y
Jess7 If any of my fellow Littens missed #HRC live on #CSPAN discussing the 2016 election and her new book #WhatHappened : I think you can go to CSPAN's website and watch the video tomorrow. I saw an advertisement after the broadcast that said events aired on their show over the past 30 years are available on their website. 2y

monkeygirlsmama Dang you fit it all in one post. Nice work! LoL 2y
Jess7 @monkeygirlsmama Haha it's all about the short hand/broken English and abbreviations! I was determined 🤓😂 2y

Jess7 Yes @Linear I am - I guess it makes me a little bit of an outsider on litsy as many people on here are librarians, authors, teachers, or have some connection to the publishing world. I know @britt_brooke IRL (her husband's parents are friends with my parents), and she introduced me to the wonderful world of Litsy. 🤗 2y
Linear @Jess7 lol thats cool about britt. Im not related to the publishing world if that lets you know your not alone lol 2y
Jess7 Thanks @Linear I'm an avid reader so this community of readers makes me extremely happy. I'm a little jealous of those who can get access to net galley ARCs, but I've been informed I may be able to find a way "in" if I want to create and manage a reading blog. If I can find the time for it, I am probably going to b/c who wouldn't want early access to books! 2y
Jess7 @Linear you should participate in the #20FactsAboutMe so I can get to know you too! 2y
britt_brooke @Jess7 💚💚💚 2y
Linear @Jess7 im working on getting my 20 facts about me lol. I have a ARC but i got it from someone as a giveaway on owlcrate society lol. Good luck getting on the "in" lol 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 Love these! Oh & mint green is so beautiful! I love mint green sea glass! 2y
Linear done 2y
eli620 I love Gilmore Girls too!! 2y
Jess7 Did you know there are Gilmore Girls themed bookmarks? I didn't but if you search the "book" Gilmore Girls on here someone posted about it (and no, there isn't really a book - the fact that the title is on litsy as book already got my hopes up, but I checked). @eli620 2y
PleasantPhantasm Dirty Dancing will forever be my favorite 📽 2y
Jess7 I like Harry Potter, but I am not a diehard fan. In general I'm not a big lover of fantasy type books, but I did take the #Buzzfeed quiz (not sure if it's as accurate as the one on the #HarryPotter website but didn't want to sign up and give my email to take that one). My #Buzzfeed quiz results were: 35% #Ravenclaw | 29% #Gryffindor | 25% #Hufflepuff | and 11% #Slytherin 2y
Avanders Hey I'm an attorney too! There don't seem to be that many of us here in the Litsyverse 😜 2y
Jess7 @Avanders good to know! I definitely think we're in the litsy minority! 🤗 2y
