Terra Nullius: a novel | Claire G. Coleman
post image
Pickpick

Wow! Speculative fiction about the horrors of colonization in Australia. Go into it without knowing anything else, trust it, it's worth it. So glad I decided to try the #readingwomen challenge this year, this wouldn't have been on my radar if not for being featured on their fiction award shortlist. And so glad I went in pretty much blind, this blew mind.

I really enjoyed this book. It's quick to read and quite entertaining. Anyone interested in the Ned Kelly story would enjoy this book...except perhaps those that despise Kelly.

I saw Clementine Ford, Iesha Small, Darren Chetty and Jamie Thrasivoulou at Birmingham Literary Festival last night and they were all absolutely brilliant! Clem started by saying that her book doesn‘t say that men are shit, but that she doesn‘t care if they think that it does (I‘m paraphrasing!) Hilarious! Made me love her even more 😂😂😂

A look at how many boys are raised in a culture of toxic masculinity & the serious consequences, not just for them, but for the girls in their lives. Thought provoking, infuriating, & heartbreaking. 4🌟

TW: some harrowing descriptions of sexual assault.

Thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Oneworld Publications, for the opportunity to read an ARC. #NetGalley

Try Hard | Em Rusciano
post image

Ahh! Went with my Mum to Em Rusciano‘s Rage & Rainbows show... brilliant night, about a wide range of topics - including the female tendency to swallow rage - and how this is a form of self harm... but she had us singing along to RAGE and it is a TUNE (recommend a listen on Spotify)

Lizpixie I love her! I saw her on The Project last week talking about the show, it looked fabulous. And who doesn‘t love a unicorn named Gary!🦄 5mo

My local library organised a talk from one of my favourite feminist writers as part of the city‘s current festival of the arts. This is the first time I‘ve been able to go to something like this and I really enjoyed it. As well as getting to listen to the inspiring and personal talk with Clementine I got her to sign my copy of Fight Like A Girl and she was lovely #authorcrush #feminism
