    Has anyone read Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay? I am currently re-reading and forgot how much I loved her essays!



    Love this quote from the book:

    Personally don't think I could pick a fav essay, but 'How to Be Friends with Another Woman" was great, and I just finished the scrabble one which made me laugh, a lot.


    If you have read it, what do you like about the book? If you haven't and want to read something about pop culture, feminism, race, fairy tales and television, amongst many other topics, I definitely recommend!

    I also liked "A Girl is a Half Formed Thing" by Eimar McBride.
    Caitlin Moran is also quite candid about how it's ok to be feminist and not be perfect.
