The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne is the recipient of an award for standout storytelling and it definitely deserves that honor. This book is extraordinary and it has become one of my favorite contemporary novels.
Sissy: A coming-of-gender story by Jacob Tobia was our April read-along pick! And, it definitely is one of the best non-fiction books I have ever read! Who is Jacob Tobia? Well, the most brilliant, gorgeous and amazing QUEEN, of course! Tobia also is a LGBTQIA rights activist, a feminist writer and a co-producer and host for the series Queer 2.0.
Killing Commendatore by Haruki Murakami. I enjoy saying the title very slowly because it brings me back to this marvelous story, to this unforgettable reading experience. This novel, released in October in the US and the UK, was one of my most anticipated releases of 2018. Haruki Murakami is definitely one of my favorite writers. This goes without saying that my expectations were very high.
I monthly host a read-along and Misogynation by Laura Bates was our September pick. I loved Everyday Sexism and Girl Up. I still recommend Everyday Sexism to everyone who’s trying to understand the true scale of gender inequality, misogyny and sexism. Girl Up is still that perfect to book to offer young women. And, now we have Misogynation.
