Once I saw this in a list of diverse books on Tumblr, there was no way I wasn't going to read it. The title alone was enough. This book is a lot. I read it all in one evening, which isn't how I would recommend other people read it--it's pretty heavy,...more

Bad Feminist: Essays

Rate this book

I learned from reading this that I actually disagree with Roxane Gay on a lot of her political ideals, specifically as they relate to feminism, and I didn't end up falling in love with it the way I expected to. But it was an engaging read, Roxane Gay...more

I don't feel like I have anything new to say about this book that I didn't also say about the two before it. It's just light, easy fun, except maybe slightly less fun since Marcus is largely out of the picture and his weird relationship with Jessica...more

I think Francesca Lia Block's stories are, like most of the folk music I used to love, things I've just outgrown. I read this book with a kind of exasperated fondness, because, I mean, I'm pretty much over reading story after story about pretty, dama...more
