What I'm Reading

What did you recently finish reading?

What We Don't Talk About When We Talk About Fat by Aubrey Gordon
Can't recommend this book enough. Everybody should read, particularly if you're not/have never been fat. I appreciated the intersectionality as well, discussing things like the racist history of the BMI, and how fat phobia has impacted the trans community in a myriad of ways, particularly in terms of qualifying for hormones or surgery.

Play It Again, Charlie by R. Cooper
This was pretty meh for me, which is a shame, as I usually love this author!

Dragon's Teeth by Upton Sinclair
My December Pulitzer Prize Winner read, and I didn't hate it! It's the 3rd book in a series, which was annoying as I definitely missed some context, but overall an interesting read.

Notable Fanfic Reads:
-Bedroom Hymns by [archiveofourown.org profile] writcraft (Harry Potter, Drarry)
-What Dreams May Comeby ??? (Harry Potter, Drarry)

Mediocre: The Dangerous Legacy of White Male America by Ijeoma Oluo
Current non-fiction read! I love this author and this is already brilliant.

What do you think you’ll read next?

How to Argue with a Racist by Adam Rutherford
Next non-fiction read!

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins
This is the new Hunger Games prequel which I'm curious about, but have been dragging my feet because do I really care how President Snow came to be horrible? I guess we'll find out!

Finding Joy by Adriana Herrera
I've really enjoyed this author's works so far and a friend just gifted me this one so I'm looking forward to reading! This entry was originally posted here on Dreamwidth. Please comment there using OpenID
