Book cover for Hate to Want You (Forbidden Hearts, #1)
“Society tells women that they have to be responsible for the emotional health of their relationships and then tells them they’re weak for feeling emotions. What kind of message is that?

Started this book in September, but only made it in about 30% until I decided to DNF it, and put it down. At the time, I just attributed it to a kind of slump I was in, but this time around, I realized that I just didn't identify with the writing sty ...more

A surprisingly enthralling account of "the covenant of ignorance" between modern-day food producers and consumers, like the anthropology of the canning process - from industrialization to the effects of the war effort in the '40s - to the legal gener ...more

Amerie
Amerie is on page 78 of 349 of Akata Witch: And this DOES give me Potter vibes, which I’ve seen mentioned, in that the world feels fresh and rich and lived-in. (Sidenote: although it’s YA, it feels middle-grade.)

A thrilling and high-concept conclusion to the vibrant and unique Binti series. I'm so glad I decided to step back into reading Afrofuturism, as this series is a really engaging and exemplary highlight for that genre.

I truly adored some of the chara

A solid enhancement of the first novella, which continued world-building and character development in meaningful ways that further evoked consistent themes, and established the grounds for the third in the series.

“After university, Annie [Smith Peck] was once again warned against the dangers of ~a lady~ moving around the country to different teaching jobs, let alone to Europe to carry on her studies, which she very much wanted to do. Her mother warned her what it might look like for a young woman to travel alone to Europe like a giant slut, but Annie replied: 'I have lived long enough to have got beyond trying to make all my actions satisfactory to my numerous friends and acquaintances.' Whack that over a sunset and put it on Instagram, friends.”
Hannah Jewell, She Caused a Riot: 100 Unknown Women Who Built Cities, Sparked Revolutions, and Massively Crushed It

William Gibson
“The future is there... looking back at us. Trying to make sense of the fiction we will have become.”
William Gibson, Pattern Recognition

Mindy Kaling
“I do not think stress is a legitimate topic of conversation, in public anyway. No one ever wants to hear how stressed out anyone else is, because most of the time everyone is stressed out. Going on and on in detail about how stressed out I am isn’t conversation. It’ll never lead anywhere. No one is going to say, “Wow, Mindy, you really have it especially bad. I have heard some stories of stress, but this just takes the cake.”
Mindy Kaling, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
“There is something at work in my soul, which I do not understand.”
Mary Shelley, Frankenstein

Armistead Maupin
“Laugh all you want and cry all you want and whistle at pretty men in the street and to hell with anybody who thinks you're a damned fool!”
