Feminist Books I want to Read 

I love diversity and I love to celebrate feminism in whatever form that takes. I had honestly never heard of feminist literature before I started blogging and now I really want to to get more into it and so here is my list of feminist books I want to read!

We Should All Be Feminist by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie 

Purchase: Book Depository

What does “feminism” mean today? That is the question at the heart of We Should All Be Feminists, a personal, eloquently-argued essay—adapted from her much-viewed Tedx talk of the same name—by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun. With humor and levity, here Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century—one rooted in inclusion and awareness. She shines a light not only on blatant discrimination, but also the more insidious, institutional behaviors that marginalize women around the world, in order to help readers of all walks of life better understand the often masked realities of sexual politics. Throughout, she draws extensively on her own experiences—in the U.S., in her native Nigeria, and abroad—offering an artfully nuanced explanation of why the gender divide is harmful for women and men, alike. Argued in the same observant, witty and clever prose that has made Adichie a bestselling novelist, here is one remarkable author’s exploration of what it means to be a woman today—and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

We should all be feminists is a book that I have seen all over the place amount the blogging community and it is one of the books that I most look forward to reading. 
How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran

Purchase: Book Depository

What do you do in your teenage years when you realise what your parents taught you wasn’t enough? You must go out and find books and poetry and pop songs and bad heroes – and build yourself. It’s 1990. Johanna Morrigan, 14, has shamed herself so badly on local TV that she decides that there’s no point in being Johanna anymore and reinvents herself as Dolly Wilde – fast-talking, hard-drinking Gothic hero and full-time Lady Sex Adventurer! She will save her poverty stricken Bohemian family by becoming a writer – like Jo in Little Women, or the Brontes – but without the dying young bit. By 16, she’s smoking cigarettes, getting drunk and working for a music paper. She’s writing pornographic letters to rock-stars, having all the kinds of sex with all the kinds of men, and eviscerating bands in reviews of 600 words or less. But what happens when Johanna realises she’s built Dolly with a fatal flaw? Is a box full of records, a wall full of posters and a head full of paperbacks, enough to build a girl after all? Imagine The Bell Jar written by Rizzo from Grease, with a soundtrack by Hole, Happy Mondays and My Bloody Valentine. As beautiful as it is funny, How To Build a Girl is a coming-of-age novel that makes you realise how odd it is that all the previous ones have been about boys.

This one seems so different to me in a way. All my life I’ve been told that I have to act a certain way and be a certain way and this novel seems to be about someone who breaks all those rules. 
How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran

Purchase: Book Depository

The New York Times bestseller, now available in paperback–“Half memoir, half polemic, and entirely necessary,” (Elle UK) Caitlin Moran’s debut–an instant runaway bestseller in the UK–puts a new face on feminism, cutting to the heart of issues with an irreverent, transcendent, and hilarious touch. “Caitlin Moran is the profane, witty and wonky best friend I wish I had. She’s the feminist rock star we need right now.”–Ayelet Waldman, author of Bad Mother “Caitlin Moran is so fabulous, so funny, so freshly feminist. I don’t want to be like her–I want to be her.” –Peggy Orenstein, author of Cinderella Ate My Daughter Caitlin Moran puts a new face on feminism, cutting to the heart of women’s issues today with her irreverent, transcendent, and hilarious How to Be a Woman. “Half memoir, half polemic, and entirely necessary,” (Elle UK), Moran’s debut was an instant runaway bestseller in England as well as an Amazon UK Top Ten book of the year; still riding high on bestseller lists months after publication, it is a bona fide cultural phenomenon. Now poised to take American womanhood by storm, here is a book that Vanity Fair calls “the U.K. version of Tina Fey’s Bossypants….You will laugh out loud, wince, and–in my case–feel proud to be the same gender as the author.”

How to be a Woman has the same author as How to Build a Girl and I think this one goes more in depth into feminist issues. I feel I would have to read one and then the other as a duo to get a full feel for her voice and to truly understand how she views feminism. 
The Secret History of Wonder Woman by Jill Lenore

Purchase: Book Depository

A riveting work of historical detection revealing that the origin of one of the world’s most iconic superheroes hides within it a fascinating family story—and a crucial history of twentieth-century feminism
Wonder Woman, created in 1941, is the most popular female superhero of all time. Aside from Superman and Batman, no superhero has lasted as long or commanded so vast and wildly passionate a following. Like every other superhero, Wonder Woman has a secret identity. Unlike every other superhero, she has also has a secret history.
Harvard historian and New Yorker staff writer Jill Lepore has uncovered an astonishing trove of documents, including the never-before-seen private papers of William Moulton Marston, Wonder Woman’s creator. Beginning in his undergraduate years at Harvard, Marston was influenced by early suffragists and feminists, starting with Emmeline Pankhurst, who was banned from speaking on campus in 1911, when Marston was a freshman. In the 1920s, Marston and his wife, Sadie Elizabeth Holloway, brought into their home Olive Byrne, the niece of Margaret Sanger, one of the most influential feminists of the twentieth century. The Marston family story is a tale of drama, intrigue, and irony. In the 1930s, Marston and Byrne wrote a regular column for Family Circle celebrating conventional family life, even as they themselves pursued lives of extraordinary nonconformity. Marston, internationally known as an expert on truth—he invented the lie detector test—lived a life of secrets, only to spill them on the pages of Wonder Woman.
The Secret History of Wonder Woman is a tour de force of intellectual and cultural history. Wonder Woman, Lepore argues, is the missing link in the history of the struggle for women’s rights—a chain of events that begins with the women’s suffrage campaigns of the early 1900s and ends with the troubled place of feminism a century later.

This book just speaks to me at the core of my heart. I love Wonder Woman and I would love to learn more about her origin. This book is right down my alley. 
Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay

Purchase: Book Depository

A collection of essays spanning politics, criticism, and feminism from one of the most-watched young cultural observers of her generation, Roxane Gay.
“Pink is my favorite color. I used to say my favorite color was black to be cool, but it is pink—all shades of pink. If I have an accessory, it is probably pink. I read Vogue, and I’m not doing it ironically, though it might seem that way. I once live-tweeted the September issue.”
In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman (Sweet Valley High) of color (The Help) while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years (Girls, Django in Chains) and commenting on the state of feminism today (abortion, Chris Brown). The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture.
Bad Feminist is a sharp, funny, and spot-on look at the ways in which the culture we consume becomes who we are, and an inspiring call-to-arms of all the ways we still need to do better.

This is a book that I feel like I need. I haven’t ever read a book of essays, but if I was ever going to start with one it would be this one. This book feels all around like it would be so empowering. I think out of all of the books listed here this would be the one I would start with. 
Thank you all for reading!  I hope you enjoyed this post. Feminism is something that should continually be talked about and I’m glad to see so many lovely feminist books exist. As always, let me know your thoughts in the comments.

The Diviners by Libba Bray Review 

The Diviners by Libba Bray

Rating: 5/5 stars

Publisher: Little Brown Books

Published: September 18th, 2012

Received: Thrift Store find 

Purchase: Amazon/ Barnes and Noble/ Book Depository

Book Blurb: 

Evie O’Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City—and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic. It’s 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.
Evie worries he’ll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.
As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfold in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds. A chorus girl named Theta is running from her past. A student named Jericho hides a shocking secret. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened. 


Some mornings, she’d wake and vow, Today, I will get it right. I won’t be such an awful mess of a girl. I won’t lose my temper or make unkind remarks. I won’t go too far with a joke and feel the room go quiet with disapproval. I’ll be good and kind and sensible and patient. The sort everyone loves. But by evening, her good intentions would have unraveled. She’d say the wrong thing or talk a little too loudly. She’d take a dare she shouldn’t, just to be noticed. Perhaps Mabel was right, and she was selfish. But what was the point of living so quietly you made no noise at all? “Oh, Evie, you’re too much,” people said, and it wasn’t complimentary. Yes, she was too much. She felt like too much inside all the time. So why wasn’t she ever enough?

First off I just want to say that this book was incredible and I am so mad at myself for reading it so slowly and not reading it sooner! 

This book emerges you completely in the 1920’s, every moment you learn more about the culture, the music, and the thoughts of the time period and that was not something I was expecting while I went into this book. One of my favorite touches to the story was all the lyrics for songs in the period. It made me want to listen to the actual songs and to dance the charleston. 

I also loved how true the speaking was, the girls spoke to one another authentically thinking of going to speakeasies, drinking giggle water, thinking of love, and updating their style. It was all so well developed. 

Careful there, Poet. I might start to believe you.

I also loved the diversity in this book, which I definitely wasn’t expecting. The interracial relationship that was absolutely beautiful and even more beautiful the relationship between Theta and Henry. How he took her in and cared for her, stuck by her side no matter what spoke of a true friendship and a bond that could never be broken. The fact that he is gay and the amount of acceptance and encouragement from Theta was awe-inspiring. 

Naughty John, Naughty John, does his work with his apron on. Cuts your throat and takes your bones, sells ’em off for a coupla stones.

The paranormal elements were so well-done as well. They created a tension that pulls you through the novel and leaves you wondering up until the very end. Whistling will forever unsettle me for the rest of my life. The change of view for the murders was heartbreaking, and it also reminded me of almost all the beginning parts of Supernatural, when you know that that person is dead and you just hope in your heart not to like them too much, but in the Diviners you often do, but they die anyway. 

This book is rich in atmosphere, it created this fascination for the occult and the glamour of the 1920’s that I didn’t realize I had. This book is one that you can really live inside. It is as much of an experience as it is a story. 

You can’t blame a fella for kissing the prettiest girl in New York, can you, sister?” Sam’s grin was anything but apologetic. 
Evie brought up her knee quickly and decisively, and he dropped to the floor like a grain sack. “You can’t blame a girl for her quick reflexes now, can you, pal?

I also enjoyed how the love triangle between Evie, Sam, and Jericho, was done to where it is more of a slow burn and you really get to know each one of them. Sam is impulsive, a quick thinker, and knows how to stay out of trouble while still being fully immersed in it. Jericho is a friendly giant, intelligent, caring, and in a lot of ways adorable, although Sam is definitely adorable in his own way (Sam can be an adorable idiot at times, in a very good way). I have a place in my heart for them all. 

Your mother and I do not approve of drinking. Have you not heard of the Eighteenth Amendment?” 
“Prohibition? I drink to its health whenever I can.

Evie herself is definitely the definition of a flapper and she embraces every part of life. She can be careless, but she has a big heart, everything she does is with good intentions even when they don’t always work out her way. I admire her for her ability to speak and do things solely because it is a part of who she is and what she believes in. Her confidence and spunk make her who she is and I really appreciate seeing a character created this way. 

I love the friendship between Evie, Theta, and Mabel. They stick together, but they are definitely each unique individuals. I can’t say the last time I read a book where so many characters were so fully developed. 

This book is so great because it is so well balanced, it feels like life is being lived, it paints a picture of a time that is threatened by a deep evil, one will take strength to defeat. Hidden like gems in these pages are friendships, hopes, dreams, murder, and love in all of its forms. This is a story well-told, one that I can’t wait to see what’s just ahead for.

Love Trumps Hate 

This is the world we live in

Full of lives 

Full of ideas 

Full of mothers and fathers 

Children and teachers 

Millions of people 

Joined together today

To share their voice 

To take each other’s hand 

To walk together 

Against the ideals of one man 

It was a walk against Hate 

A walk to celebrate diversity

To show we are here for one another 

As much as we can be 

It was a beautiful day 

Opening the door for many more

For us to continue to work together 

I am excited for what’s in store

It was a fight for all races 

A fight for total equality

A fight to show we will not rest

Until all people can go on peacefully 

Until the world is filled with unity

Acceptance for all

We must not wallow in despair 

We must be vocal

We must stand tall 

In this world 

We have one common uniter 

The love we share with one another 

A true compassion for our fellow people 

We must never forget 

What was fought for on this day

Because love trumps hate 

No matter what century or place

I am awed and inspired by the sheer numbers of people that protested for their beliefs today. My one regret is that I could not personally attend, and so this post is my thank you to all who did. I felt tears in my eyes as I looked at countless photographs and heard the many speeches of those who joined the march. I have never been prouder of humanity, this fight gives me so much hope. There is work yet to be done, and this is only a beginning. I can’t wait to see the beauty of what this future will bring. 

Thank you for reading. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around–and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly.

Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance to lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?
The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries–including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? and if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

A List of Cages by Robin Roe

Then the doctor asks him to track down the troubled freshman who keeps dodging her, and Adam discovers that the boy is Julian–the foster brother he hasn’t seen in five years. Adam is ecstatic to be reunited. At first, Julian seems like the boy he once knew. He’s still kind hearted. He still writes stories and loves picture books meant for little kids. But as they spend more time together, Adam realizes that Julian is keeping secrets, like where he hides during the middle of the day, and what’s really going on inside his house. Adam is determined to help him, but his involvement could cost both boys their lives. First-time novelist Robin Roe relied on life experience when writing this exquisite, gripping story featuring two lionhearted characters.
