What I'm Reading

What did you recently finish reading?

The Body is Not an Apology: The Power of Radical Self-Love by Sonya Renee Taylor
This was a pretty quick and easy read and I appreciated the nuance and importance of "radical self-love" and opposed to body positivity and/or self-confidence.

Scarlet Sister Mary by Julia Peterkin
I really didn't know what to expect with this one, but I enjoyed it!

Roommate by Sarina Bowen
The summary of this one didn't totally grab me but I love this author and I'm happy to say this didn't disappoint! Interesting characters and plot, and I appreciated the maturity and realism of the conflict.

Notable Fanfic Reads:
-A Dance in the Moonlight by [archiveofourown.org profile] saltnhalo(Supernatural, Destiel)
-A Pain of Our Choosing by [archiveofourown.org profile] writcraft (Harry Potter, Prongsfoot)
