Episode 3 of our 6th season and last of our #ownvoices cycle is this strange coming of age lesbian novel with hardcore things to say about poverty and family as well. We did not expect the twists. It was good! We think…
I have never had so many issues with a book and yet been so emotionally invested. For fans of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, this one might be even better!
Wherein, we chat for half an hour about the wrap up of the own voices cycle in Bibliomancy and just general discussions going on in the publishing community about representation.
Wherein, we discuss some audio books that made the experience of reading better than reading a physical book would have been. We’ve both been seriously into audiobooks lately and wanted to share the love!
The Nowhere Girls is an incredible story of many voices fighting back against a covered up sexual assault. An essential read for the #metoo movement.
For episode two of this new season, we’re keeping the OwnVoices theme with this one! I’ve wanted to read this since the second it came out, but grad school is hard guys. I figured it fit the theme perfectly and this way I’d make everyone read it! Great idea, past me.
One of the best books I’ve read for school this year so far. If you haven’t read this yet, you need to. This dual narrative about the white and African-American experience with police brutality is so right now and necessary.
