This was a lovely way to spend a Satirday evening. If you enjoy clean or, as the author has branded her works, proper romances, you'll love this sweet love story. It's about a doctor, a nurse with a secret, and the town that falls in love with both of them. #romantsy

#listening to the #audiobook of Archenemies on
#Libby. I'm just not liking this series as much as The Lunar Chronicles, but I'm interested enough in the author to read book two. It's so-so so far.

This is perhaps the most important book I will ever read. If you have been raped or know a victim of sexual assault, this book is a must read. It not only helps you understand what has happened but also understand that whatever you‘re feeling is okay. Bringing you from the night of to the potential court case, each chapter has a section for the victim and for her friends and family. I cannot recommend this resource highly enough. #metoo

annahenke My own case is currently in progress, and this has been invaluable to me. The SARS program was key for me as well. Women need to know these resources exist. #informationispower 2mo

It‘s the perfect day for it here in Minnesota - gray and raining. I‘m sitting in my yellow wingback armchair, sipping tea from the mug I got from the Jane Austen museum in Bath with my journal ready to record. The fire is burning beside me. Let the reading commence!

This is an enjoyable and more #literary take on the #bookaboutbooks theme. Many books about books are charming and nostalgic, but the editor of the New York Times Book Review, unsurprisingly, presents a more sophisticated perspective. A good read.

This book is so full of meaning with its thoughtful reflections and wise conclusions about terminal illness and death. As a person who struggles with chronic illness and lost her father to cancer at 19, this was a difficult but thoroughly worthy read.

“What happened to Paul was tragic, but he was not a tragedy.”

Questions, Questions | Marcus Pfister

Calling all littens:

I need your help. I‘m looking for books that deal with rape in a sensitive way as well as the consequences. If the books touches on pursuing legal action or healing, you get bonus points.

Thanks.

akckitty Some good ones. I can't remember which one's dealt with also going to court though. But all great reads that deals with it with sensitivity. 3mo
akckitty Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, I Have the Right To by Cheesy Prout, Wrecked by Maria Padian, Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu, The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith.. 3mo
akckitty What We Saw by Aaron Hartzler, All the Rage by Courtney Summers.. hope some of these help what you're looking for! 3mo

esurient Child victim of parental incest, follows through public disclosure, arrest, decision to accept a plea arrangement and why, post-trama therapy, and stable and contented adulthood. 3mo
esurient Memoir, college-age victim, a lot of detail in trying to make arrest, build court case, follow through court case, come to her own equilibrium. Writing is more 'articulated rage' than 'sensitive'. 1999 publication, describes 1981 event. 3mo
esurient I second @akckitty 's recommendation. Only court is public opinion, great narration from the teen's own point of view. There's also a film adaptation. 3mo
Beachesnbooks Powerful essay collection dealing with rape culture edited by Roxane Gay. Highly recommend 3mo
Scochrane26 Invisible girls (more about sexual abuse), the sound of silence (different real life stories from women & at least one man who has realized he date-raped a girl), lucky (author of lovely bones)). Laurie Halse Anderson has a new memoir about her experience & also wrote Speak. (edited) 3mo
BooksAndTea97 It's a YA book but I think it is really good. It deals with rape and also with other stuff such as mental health and sexual orientation.(It's told from three different teen perspectives) I think it is greatly underapreaciated and that there should be a bit more hype around it. 3mo
