I’m curious to know what all of my followers are reading! I’m always looking for new book suggestions (especially graphic novels and YA!) and I thought I would turn to my fellow book nerds! Please leave me a comment down below letting me know what you are currently reading OR what you are looking forward to reading! Also feel free to send me a tweet over on Twitter too.
I’m currently reading a book called Shrill by Lindy West which actually just got released as a TV show over on Hulu! IT IS SO GOOD. I really like it! This is a little bit of the description from Goodreads: “Coming of age in a culture that demands women be as small, quiet, and compliant as possible–like a porcelain dove that will also have sex with you–writer and humorist Lindy West quickly discovered that she was anything but.
With inimitable good humor, vulnerability, and boundless charm, Lindy boldly shares how to survive in a world where not all stories are created equal and not all bodies are treated with equal respect, and how to weather hatred, loneliness, harassment, and loss–and walk away laughing. Shrill provocatively dissects what it means to become self-aware the hard way, to go from wanting to be silent and invisible to earning a living defending the silenced in all caps.” The other book that I am reading is the Baby-Sitters Club volume 3: Mary Anne Saves the Day by Raina Telgemeier which is actually a graphic novel adaptation of the original books! I never read the original Baby Sitters Club books as a kid so I’m really loving getting the chance to read these as a graphic novel. I’m also reading a few manga right now including Assassination Classroom and a newer one called Ao Haru Ride, volume 1.
I hope you are all having a great week (is it still Spring Break or did I miss that completely??) and I can’t wait to hear from you all!
