Book wise, things have been pretty good, too! April was Sexual Assault Awareness month. Because of that, I decided to read some books on that theme. I read Asking For It: The Alarming Rise of Rape Culture and What We Can Do About it by Kate Harding, SPEAK by Laurie Halse Anderson, and Exit, Pursued by a Bear by E.K. Johnston. They were all pretty good reads. I especially enjoyed reading Asking For It. Not because the topic is enjoyable, but because it’s a smart, snarky exploration of sexism, feminism, and rape culture that had me highlighting passages and bubbling with righteous indignation. I definitely recommend it and will personally be seeking out similar titles in the future. Education is the first step on the road to change.
I also picked up a few other recent releases. I read the awesome series enders The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski and The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater! Obviously I love them. I read No One Knows by J.T. Ellison (review here) for She Reads. It’s a very twisty thriller. It was a fun read, but not the kind of thriller for me. The last book I read in April was another thriller! I read He Will Be My Ruin by K.A. Tucker for an upcoming book tour! Check back on the 31st for my full review!
