Things

There will be no wrap up this week. I had one half-written, almost ready to go up, but I can’t finish it. Yesterday, I lost my grandmother. It was unexpected and quick, and I don’t think I’ve fully processed it yet. I was lucky enough to spend the past two days with her, but it’s […]

This post was totally unplanned, but since it’s International Women’s Day today, and I’ve been trying to read more feminist literature lately, I thought it would be cool to share some of my favorite books with feminist themes (both fiction and nonfiction) and some of the books I haven’t yet read but are on my TBR.
