One of my 2017 intentions is to read more, and in particular, I want to read more feminist authors. I think many women go through a similar phase where you just need to feed off of the energy of some kick-ass women who speak truths that you didn’t know you needed. Here is a list of what’s on the docket for me this year:
How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran
There is probably not one book on this list that I have heard more about than How to be a Woman. Caitlin Moran’s name has been thrown around by many a blogger and influencer and it’s about damn time I read the thing.
Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
This is a close second to How to be a Woman in terms of how often I hear about this book and its apparently beautiful and thoughtful writing. I have peeked inside on amazon and was already touched by what I read so I have a good feeling about this one.
The Life-Changing Magic of not giving a f*ck by Sarah Knight
The title of this book says it all.
Shrill:Notes from a Loud Woman by Lindy West
Lindy West is an amazing resource for body-positivity and general feminist juju. I’m excited to dive into this highly recommended book.
Sex Object by Jessica Valenti
This book has been on many a feminist lit resource list and it’s been on my goodreads for far too long.
Men Explain things to me by Rebecca Solnit
Mansplaining in a nutshell.
Daring Greatly by Brene Brown
I LOVE Brene. Her book I thought it was just me but it wasn’t is essential in overcoming shame. I have been wanting to read this one forever and this year I will finally get around to doing so.
I hope this gave you some ideas for some new books to read by some kickass authors! If you read any of these or want to use any for the Rooted Mama Reads book club, shoot me a message!
