This morning I discovered that today marks the start of Feminist Book Fortnight, so of course I’ve rescheduled a bunch of posts for the next two weeks. I can’t let an awesome campaign like that pass me by! But what exactly is Feminist Book Fortnight, I hear you ask? It’s a celebration of feminist books, organised by a group of independent bookshops, in recognition of the 100th anniversary of some women in the UK getting the vote. Pretty rad, right?
I’ve got a few posts planned over the next fortnight but I thought I’d kick off the series with a special Saturday Share, highlighting my favourite book bloggers. Some of these are more typically ‘lifestyle’ blogs but these gals have great taste in books and I love reading their recommendations. Here goes…
This list is alphabetical but I can’t not put the fabulous Grace Latter of Almost Amazing Grace near the top, can I?! Check out her recent reads. I’m beyond psyched to have a collaborative project lined up with her and a few other bloggers for a new release.
Blogger’s Bookshelf is a collaborative blog so you get loads of recommendations and fun, collaborative posts. I’ve been enjoying the Popsugar Reading Challenge updates (maybe I’ll get stuck into that next year?) and the bookish links are always interesting.
If you’re looking for theatre reviews, Carpe Diem Emmie is a fantastic resource but I also love to see what Emmie has been reading. Her last update featured an interesting mix of young adult, mental health, thriller and self-help.
Chloe Metzger‘s blog features a great range of posts including book reviews, feminist discussions and mental health experiences. This week she shared a review of Illumicrate – I love reading about book subscriptions to try.
dePepi is a wonderfully geeky blog and I love Pepi’s comic book updates. She put together a great list of recommendations for Pride Month.
I’m not a lover of poetry (I’m aware that’s super generalised and dismissive) but Miriam’s review of Rupi Kaur’s The Sun and her Flowers made me instantly add it to my wish list. Miriam is a Literature and Publishing graduate so there are plenty of great titles listed on her blog, English Mademoiselle Diaries.
