Mini Reviews: Hood Feminism by Mikki Kendall + Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Pérez + Mediocre by Ijeoma Oluo

I think I've always been a feminist but maybe didn't realize that there was another way to be. It definitely started with my interest in the intersection of health and society.

Mini Reviews: So Close to Being the Sh*t by Retta + Untamed by Glennon Doyle + How to Be a Person in the World by Heather Havrilesky

I love a good celebrity memoir. I don't what it is about them, but I find them a lot of fun (especially on audio) and full of random (and not so random) wisdom.

They are both considered high fantasy as they take place in completely fictional worlds in addition to having some sort of magic system or some sort of magic-like elements … Continue reading Mini Reviews: The Queens of Innis Lear by Tessa Gratton + The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon

Mini Reviews: I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara + American Sherlock by Kate Winkler Dawson + We Keep the Dead Close by Becky Cooper

After finishing I'll Be Gone in the Dark, it seems that I went down a little bit of true crime rabbit hole. All three of these books are nonfiction true crime books; I listened to the audiobook versions. When researched and written well, I find nonfiction true crime novels to be really intriguing and engrossing. … Continue reading Mini Reviews: I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara + American Sherlock by Kate Winkler Dawson + We Keep the Dead Close by Becky Cooper
