Beyond the Book: Books I really really want to read
I have books to read, too, and have nothing like your very good reason of writing a book! :) These look great; thanks for sharing them with us. I just want to plug two others that many have already read, but that still shimmer in my mind: Heavy, by the wonderful Kiese Laymon; and The Disordered Cosmos, by Chandra Prescod-Weinstein.
I started reading the Second by Carol Anderson because I saw it on your list. I'm a little under half-way through and it is exhaustingly researched and, as much as a topic like that can be, breezy. It's a fascinating read. Thanks for the recommendation.
I’m on a novel kick: anything and everything by Louise Erdrich (I’m half way through Future Home of the Living God), Finding the Mother Tree, by Suzanne Simard, and The Old Drift, by Namwali Serpell. (And can’t wait for Ijeoma Oluo’s upcoming book!)
Thanks for this list! I'm most excited to read "It’s Always Been Ours: Rewriting the Story of Black Women’s Bodies" by Jessica Wilson, MS, RD.
Carol Anderson is made of awesome sauce. Thanks for the heads up
