Twilight / Life and Death by Stephenie Meyer

I commend Meyer for rewriting Twilight with a gender reversal. I thought it was a really cool idea, and my imagination ran wild with the potential this idea had for other series. Just as an exercise, reversing characters' genders is a good way to for ...more

Most of this book really resonated with me. This is a quick and easy read for anyone that wants an introduction to feminism and has a short attention span. A lot of feminist text is very academic and I felt like this was more accessible. However, as ...more

We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
If you think that it should be called "we should all be egalitarians"... man I suggest you spend more than 8 dollars on books about feminism

I loved the idea of this book, I thought it was very original. However the pacing was really slow, especially for the first half. The author gives very detailed descriptions of everything. I can tell the world of the Belles is very vivid in her mind, ...more
More of Rose's books…
“She had been waiting for someone to notice her, like, really notice her. She felt that that was the key, that she would go from the duck to the swan the minute someone recognized her potential. And they would look into her like they were trying to pierce her eyes with theirs, like they were trying to make her heart stop, and the whole world would become background noise and she would take her first breath after all of these years of nothing but existing. It would be like a coronation, or a star exploding, and then she would be born. She would be alive, and she would be loved.”
Rose Fall, Heart: A Romantic Short Story Collection

“I stared at my lap. I wished I were confident, I wished I were brave. I wished he didn’t scare me. But the more he spoke the less I wanted to look away, and the more I did.”
Rose Fall, How To Get Your Heart Broken

“He stood frozen, staring at me as if he didn’t know how to do anything else. I couldn’t focus; it was like all the world’s blue had originated from his eyes. It was all there, the color of midnight, the sky, the ocean, and blue raspberry lollipops. Why had I spent so much time pretending they weren’t remarkable?”
Rose Fall, How To Get Your Heart Broken

“There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise.”
Emery Allen

Rose Fall, Heart: A Romantic Short Story Collection

“In high school, she’d been the loner fat girl and I’d been the asshole jock. There had always been something between us; we had gotten on so easily. I remember being both confused and upset that when I’d finally experienced that thing everyone called chemistry, it had been with her of all people.”
