Three very interesting books this week! Two fiction books, one for the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge, and one for Black History Month. Plus a nonfiction book on emotional labor.
Black Enough is an anthology of Young Adult stories about being black in America, and all the variety that can mean.
The Girl King is a book about sisters denied their rightful throne, and it looks amazing.
And FED UP: Emotional labor, women, and the way forward is my nonfiction book. Fits right in with Rage Becomes Her.
I am carving out time to read in between house-buying things – we have a home inspection on Monday, and we appear to still be on track for the 22nd closing date, so we’re going to start packing the entire house pretty soon!
Looking forward to your thoughts on The Girl King!
I read Fed Up last year and !!! it’s fascinating. I really enjoyed reading it because the analysis is mixed in with her personal experiences. It’s one of the first times I’d ever read about emotional labor, but it’s become a new topic of interest to me. I hope you enjoy!
Cool! I’ve read about emotional labor on the internet quite a bit, but this will be my first book on the topic.
