The Mere Wife: A Novel | Maria Dahvana Headley
post image
Pickpick

an exquisitely told, brutal revisioning of Beowulf, set in modern, Stepford-like suburbia. It is a story of mothers and sons, the equal intensity and distance of that bond. Set against the backdrop of an unnamed war, this is a story about the distancing of domestic life from global crisis, and what happens when those two worlds intersect. It‘s a story of the wild and the tamed. Headley asks her reader big questions about the impact of othering.

Lorde wrote a powerful book about coming of age in the 50s.Black, poor , Lesbian, she knew she would be a poet.She also knew all the things she was will make her voice unforgettable.Leaving home at 17 , she worked grueling jobs to keep herself alive .Plath knew she would be a poet too . Her book the Bell Jar and Lordes book both have sections on NYC in 1953 where the execution of the Rosenbergs are on the minds of both women.

A #feminist, fabulous collection of short stories. Some were more like fairy tales, but all had real-feeling relationships and hilarious moments (many devastating ones too). If you‘re trying to add more short stories to your 2020 reading list, stack this one!

Thanks to #Netgalley!

Wow! Read this for a work training on Monday. This one totally took me by surprise! It‘s YA fantasy, but DEFINITELY mature YA as there were LOT of triggers and mature themes throughout the story. Basically a prince slays a dragon to become king as tradition entails, is horrible to “his damsel” but the ending is nothing like I expected! This will make a great discussion with my coworkers in the car next week!
