Thanks Sarah for hosting this check in of fiction and nonfiction pairings – I love this idea and my TBR list is growing! I’m cheating as I haven’t quite read all of these but…
Flappers: 6 Women of a Dangerous Generation was a fantastic nonfiction read [thanks again Eva for pointing me to it!!]. I could easily go down the rabbit hole reading more about all of them but I am most dying to read this fiction.. Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald Zelda is totally fascinating. I need to read her own work as well as some fiction about her life.
The Underground Girls of Kabul exposed me to a whole style of life I’d never thought of. I really still need to read The Pearl that Broke Its Shell for a fictionalized version of this life in Afghanistan.
Last here’s three phenomenal books to fill you with feminist rage and empowerment both. All of these books made me cry. All should make you want to stand up and do something! All the Rage by Courtney Summers, Dietland by Sarai Walker and Shrill: Notes From a Loud Woman by Lindy West. Lindy West is my new nonfiction obsession! Honorable mention hare is also the amazing Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay. Read them all!
