Book Club Brunch – Chapter 32

Book Club Brunch – Chapter 32

Hi there,

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of stopping by Upshur Street Books in Washington, DC with a few friends. And, as is probably true of all of you, I can’t enter a bookstore without leaving with at least a few goodies in a bag!

This week, I picked up an excellent pairing – Book One of Bitch Planet and You Learn by Living, by Eleanor Roosevelt. These two manage to create an interestingly balanced perspective on feminism and the resistance. While Roosevelt has a calm, persistent and slow-fought resistance, Bitch Planet gives you the in-your-face confrontation of the patriarchy that’s a vicarious thrill.

We also got to dive into our February book club pick – Kindred, by Octavia E. Butler – this week! I’m about 50 pages in so far, and it’s creepy in the most realistic way possible, considering it’s speculative fiction. Scary as hell.

How are you liking Kindred so far?

Peace,

Whitney

Book Review | Love and Gelato, by Jenna Evans Welch

When summer rolls around, I start to crave books about Europe the way kids crave ice cream when they are at the pool (or, let’s be honest with ourselves, always). If the book is about sunny Italy, I can’t pull out my wallet fast enough to purchase it....

    Bitch Planet is AMAZING! Non-Compliant for life. I’m excited to hear your thoughts on it!

    So when this was written I hadn’t read the book yet….then Sunday happened. I finished this in one afternoon-which with a 5 month old made me feel very accomplished. Now I can’t wait for the discussion on this book!
