Book Review | The Women’s War

The words “feminist fantasy” are a major weakness for me. I love fantasy, and I really love feminist literature, so I kind of have to read any book marketed that way.

Book Review | The Power

People can’t seem to stop talking about Naomi Alderman’s The Power. Ever since it came out in October, I have been seeing it absolutely everywhere. I actually got this as my Book of the Month right when it came out, but hadn’t gotten around to reading it. But when I saw that Obama named it as […]

Book Review | How to Build a Girl

I have always been a goody-two-shoes, a compulsive rule follower. I’ve never gotten a single detention, done drugs, smoked a cigarette, or drank alcohol as a teenager (except sips at family parties). That said, there is a little part of me that wishes I had done all those things. And that, I think, is why I […]
