i found this graphic novel at work!!! its this collection of stories about women loving women and having their hearts broken and finding community among other things, I'm not a huge fan of the illustration style tbh but it was a nice read

*trigger warning for sexual assault and harassment both drawn and written about in this book so please take care of yourselves!

this graphic novel is a collection of stories all about the real lived experiences of people dealing with sexual assault, it isn't very long but it does tell you a whole lot about r*pe culture and how it silences and shames those who have done nothing wrong and allows those who have done wrong to do as they please. 5/5.

I picked this up again and honestly Alison Bechdel is a genius and rereading her stuff during pride month is a great choice!

It's been a little while since i posted on here since the library i work at has been keeping me super busy but i hope everyone is having a nice weekend! 💙

mommyincolor I've attempted to read this but could not get into it. Glad you enjoyed it! 6mo

I saw Roxane Gay reviewed this a while back and decided to read it too and i'm glad i did!

Our main character is a woman who cannot find peace in her own body, with her own weight and it ruins her in such a real way that i found myself wrecked by this book. I don't know if this was what this book set out to do but it served as a reminder to treat my body with the respect and love it deserves, as should we all.

CouronneDhiver Agree! 7mo

this is literally just a book collecting the names people have called groups of birds over time and i enjoyed it far too much!

some examples :
'a commotion of coots'
'an improbability of shearwaters'
'a swatting of flycatchers'
'a cast of merlins'

it's only a few words per page but i still love this silly bird book and i had to share it

Fridameetslucy I need this book!! I draw birds !! Well very metephorical birds. My Instagram has same name if you want to see them. 7mo

i liked this!

this is a good place to start if you're interested in reading about body positivity. It markets itself as a handbook and does have challenges to encourage confidence but it also goes into the history of weight and fashion and has guest essays too for extra perspectives!

she even provides a reading list at the back of the book and lists of blogs and websites to check out which as a fellow fat woman i dived right into and loved

An exploration of death and the unveiling of life beyond the doors of a crematorium. Caitlin Doughty, a real life mortician respectfully approaches difficult subjects with grace and humour and pushes away some of the barriers that separate us from our own mortality.

The author has a channel i recommend checking out if the book sounds like your kind of thing, just search 'ask a mortician' on youtube!

wanderinglynn The book sounds interesting. And what pretty stones. 💚 9mo

This graphic novel about a young woman living in London, trying to find a job she doesn't hate and ranting about how expensive it is to live here made me feel very seen™
