The Stars Are Legion | Kameron Hurley
Pickpick

The Stars are Legion is a book that doesn't care if you're uncomfortable. It is angry, it is brutal, it doesn't need any dudes.

Tor.com has started publishing novellas that focus on diversity. You need to check out their catalog. I've had this on my shelf since Nov and finally have the time to devote to it. First few pages are great!

I have a thing for the Tudor reign. Interesting to read a perspective about Catherine instead of her cousin Anne Boleyn. Out 4/4/17 #booksandleggings #arc #galley #nonfiction

BiblioNyan I feel like there are soooo many books about Anne but not many about his other wives. Interested to see what you think of it when you're finished. 😊 3y

This was one of those books that had such a great premise, but executed poorly. I can't place my finger on what didn't work for me. It's also my second book finished for #boutofbooks

Newest addition to the #feministfolio. My coworker raved about this one and I couldn't resist. Also a blurb by the Bloggess rings all my bells. #literaryloot

Mostly enjoyed this book. I have some meh feelings about the world building that I need to think about, but plot and characters were interesting. I'm definitely going to see how the sequel goes.

Definitely be on the look out for this title in 2017. Read the first in the series The Queen of Blood while you wait! Great worldbuilding with interesting characters.

A solid sequel to Winterwood. I highly appreciate Bedford's treatment of the main character Ross. She's a layered individual who doesn't always have the answers and is secure in her identity even when she's feeling vulnerable in some areas.

Great sampling of not as well known women who have done epic things throughout history. A great place to get started before jumping into denser or more detailed research.

As a kid born in the 1980s The Daily Show was an integral part of my adult years. No, I didn't get my news solely from Jon, but he often expressed exactly my feelings on the news, if a lot funnier and with more eloquence, although the cursing was the same. This history of his tenure was a wonderful behind the scenes look on how the show achieved that relationship with its audience.

Difficult Women | Roxane Gay
post image
Pickpick

The women in this collection are indeed difficult women. They are real women. They are multidimensional and flawed. As usual, Gay is able to use her talent to give distinctive voices to each woman in their respective stories. Once again I'm floored by how visceral her writing is, in the best way possible. These short stories make you feel a barrage of emotions, from discomfort to grief, to pity, to empathy and everything in between.

WOCreads So glad to hear you liked, definitely need to read this one then!😊📚 3y
