5 Books You Should Read Instead of Thinking about Brett Kavanaugh

Some of my favorite recents reads, coincidentally all by female authors. Let’s read more and do better.

 

1. The PowerIMG_7407-2 Written by a mentee of Margaret Atwood, this book is a feminist prose for the new age. It switches the script gendered power and forces you to rethink what it actually means to be in control.

 

2. PreistdaddyIMG_7409-2.jpg Hilarious, beautifully written art. Poetry in memoir form.

3. Fates and FuriesIMG_7412-2.jpgOne of my favorite books of all time, the perfect combination of narrative and artful writing. You will need to read at least twice.

 

4. Heart TalkIMG_7405-2.jpgCleo Wade is my hero. You’ve probably seen her work on Instagram and this book is a perfect collection of poems and life wisdom. I read this right before I go to sleep or first thing in the morning to get my shit together.

 

5. Dear Madam PresidentIMG_7411-2I cry like every time I read this book. Written shortly after the 2016 presidential election this is an ode to leadership and womanhood that has never been more timely. I use it as an instruction book for daily living as well as aspirational goal setting. Important, important, important.
