The month of February flew by, I found myself busy planning a trip, taking the trip, and recovering from jetlag.
I did do some reading though, mostly while I was traveling or wide awake in bed in the middle of the night.
I fell in love with my Kindle again, so convenient to read in the dark while on a plane or while your significant other is asleep next to you.
So here's what I borrowed from the library during the month of February.
If you're interested to see what else is on my waiting list, check out my 2023 reading list.
And please share your recommendations in the comments (women, queer, POC authors are more or less all I've been reading since 2017 and I'd like to keep this trend going!)
1. Token Black Girl by Danielle Prescod
I will never understand what it is to live as a Black woman in today's America, but I'll keep reading their stories so I can try to.
2. Futur.es - Comment le féminisme peut sauver le monde by Lauren Bastide
My admiration for French feminist, journalist, podcaster, and writer Lauren Bastide knows no bounds. I've been following her work for close to a decade and am in awe of her career and personal journey. Her podcast La Poudre is my all-time fave. French speakers, don't walk, run!
3. I'll Show Myself Out by Jessi Klein
This hilarious book comforted me in my decision not to have kids :D I remember laughing out loud while waiting at the gate at the airport.
4. Kinfolk Islands by John Burns
Did I really read this book? I mean, I came here only for the imagery. The wanderlust is real.
5. The Art of Feminism - Images That Shaped the Fight for Equality, 1857-2017
I had a poster of the art that's on the cover of this book. When I downsized and moved, I offered it to locals and I believe it ended up in someone's classroom. I really like that! Yay to empowering future generations!
6-ish. Where I Was From by Joan Didion
Should one put on their reading list the books they didn't finish? I randomly downloaded this ebook without knowing what it was about. I was in the mood for a story, not an exposé, my mistake.
