#AMonthofFaves On Our Holiday Wishlist – There’s nothing wrong with putting what you want out in the universe. So share! What’s on your list – whether you’re hoping for it now, or saving to get it later.
There are always SOOOO many books to read or that I’m drooling over. In going through my wishlist, these are on the tippy top.
Rage Becomes Her: The Power of Women’s Anger by Soraya Chemaly urges women to harness their anger as a tool for social and personal change.
Call Them By Their True Names: American Crises by Rebecca Solnit. One of my fave authors has written an essay collection that addresses “war with so many dead by police, by violent ex-husbands and partners and lovers, by people pursuing power and profit at the point of a gun or just shooting first and figuring out who they hit later.”
Outside the Lines: How Embracing Queerness Will Transform Your Faith is by Mihee Kim-Kort, a wife, a mom, and a Presbyterian minister. And she’s queer. As she became aware of her queer sexuality, Mihee wondered what that meant for her spirituality. But instead of pushing her away from God, her queerness has brought her closer to Jesus and taught her how to love better.
Trans Like Me: A Journey for All of Us by C.N. Lester, an academic and activist, who takes readers on a journey through some of the most pressing issues concerning the trans debate and shares personal experience.
The Princess Saves Herself in This One (Women Are Some Kind of Magic #1) by Amanda Lovelace is a poetry collection divided into four different parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, and you. The princess, the damsel, and the queen piece together the life of the author in three stages, while you serves as a note to the reader and all of humankind.
Dear Madam President: An Open Letter to the Women Who Will Run the World by Jennifer Palmieri posits that, as a country, we haven’t wrapped our heads around what it should look like for a woman to be in the job of President. Our only models are men. While wildly disappointed by the outcome of the 2016 election, Palmieri argues that our feelings-confusion, love, hate, acceptance-can now open the country up to re-imagining women in leadership roles.
