The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together by Heather McGhee – 4 stars This was for my Feminist Theory course. McGhee looks at how racism affects everyone in the USA. I thought it was well-done, readable, and quite interesting.
Jill by Amy Dillwyn – 4 stars This forgotten Victorian Welsh classic is what I chose to write my Feminist Theory paper on. It is such a fun book with an unconventional heroine who is in love with another woman!
Normal Life: Administrative Violence, Critical Trans Politics, & the Limits of Law by Dean Spade – 3 stars This was also for my Feminist Theory class. It’s an important book and definitely informative, but I was too stressed and out of it to truly appreciate it.
Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit by Jaye Robin Brown – 2 stars This is a lesbian YA romance that did have a lot of features I liked. But the ableism and negative representation of lesbians other than the main characters made it difficult to enjoy.
