#NFNov I was a few years too old for the Spice Girls,but my eldest daughter was obsessed with them,to the point of having a “Spice Girls Theme” birthday party(yes, I dressed up as Sporty Spice🤦🏻‍♀️)so it was interesting to get a bit of background on the girls.Her husband sounds like a real prince,mental abuse can be far more damaging than physical,believe me I know. She does come across as very much Me Me Me at times. #TIL-NEVER make a sex tape!

When child is a soldier then something is very wrong with our world ... Emmanuel‘s childhood was constant battle of survival. Growing up with many scars in his soul, he managed to escape, to control his anger/hate, and find his voice in music. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Akala writes about being a black, British man, born in the 1980s, along with the political, colonial, race and class roots that built his experience. It‘s a nuanced, thought-provoking, sometimes challenging, book, particularly where he‘s criticising ‘icons‘. His thoughts on education are particularly powerful. Loads to unpack in here, lots of jumping off points to learn more. Expect to disagree or have your thinking challenged on some points!

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I have not heard about this one, but it sounds fantastic! Stacking! 11mo
RachelO @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘d be interested to hear a US perspective on this one, if you do get to it. 11mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @RachelO If I get to it, I‘ll try to remember to tag you.... but it might be awhile. 11mo
Reggie This sounds great. Stacked. 11mo
