Six-Gun Snow White | Catherynne M. Valente
Pickpick

This retelling of Snow White was incredibly refreshing. I often forgot it was a retelling, having moments of recognition such as who the hunter was or what a certain moment symbolized. The imagery astounded me. It could be amazing and beautiful and gruesome. There are some disturbing moments in this book, including sexual assault. I haven't finished a book in over a year so SGSW is now especially special to me.

very atmospheric with beautiful writing, but the plot was lacking and predictable. also, characters were quite flat.

more mystery, but less lisbeth. also, too much of a cliffhanger.

Bad Feminist | Roxane Gay

a collection of essays, so naturally there will be some hits and misses. however, there are many more essays i adore than ones that just kind of didn't work for me. a necessary read.

so much happening that it was hard to enjoy or take in any of the story.

graphically disturbing and painful to read, but i appreciate gay sharing her truth. i connected with some but not all of her story. in any case, this is a stunning memoir.
