This book was near perfection. Going into it I was admittedly a bit skeptical because of all the praise I'd heard and read for it, but it definitely lives up to its hype. Lockhart has a particular skill for drawing the reader in and keeping them gues ...more

I really loved how much I related to this book and its overall theme of trying to find your place in the world. The alternating voices of the chapters was a great way to get insight not only into each character's individual story, but their personal ...more

A great compilation centered around a topic that is often considered shameful and swept under the rug. The standouts for me were: "Flawless" by Lydia Miller, "How I Lost Her" by Ann Hood, "The Other Face" by Mary Morris, "The New Girl" by Nicole Keet ...more

“Female friendship was one-tenth prevention and nine-tenths cleanup.”
Maggie Shipstead, Seating Arrangements

Warsan Shire
“every mouth you’ve ever kissed
was just practice
all the bodies you’ve ever undressed
and ploughed in to
were preparing you for me.
i don’t mind tasting them in the
memory of your mouth

a door half open
a single suit case still on the conveyor belt
was it a long journey?
did it take you long to find me?
you’re here now,
welcome home.”
Warsan Shire

Emilie Autumn
“You," he said, "are a terribly real thing in a terribly false world, and that, I believe, is why you are in so much pain.”
Emilie Autumn, The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls
