Time to update with some recently read books! I could swear I had already written about the first few of these.. but it seems not.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche - We Should All Be Feminists
This was an interesting feminist read, though I substract a bit from the rating for the book just being focused on ciswomen/cismen, not taking trans people into account.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche - Dear Ijeawele: A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions
The author writes a letter to her sister about how to raise her daughter in a feminist way. It was a nice read.
Marie Lotte Hagen and Nydia van Voorthuizen - Damn, Honey
This is a short read for young-adult, that is feminist, which talks about various aspects. It was a really good read.
Marie Lotte Hagen and Nydia van Voorthuizen - Heb je nou al een vriend?
I loved this! Such a good feminist book about many things people say to womxn (anyone not a cis-man) and how to respond to it. It also talks about men and masculinity, the patriarchy, many studies/research that was done, the authors talk about many of their own experiences.
Scarlett Curtis & Others - Feministen Dragen Geen Roze En Andere Leugens (Feminists Don't Wear Pink And Other Lies)
This is a book with many essays (by many authors) to do with feminism. I read the Dutch translation of this, which adds some essays by Dutch feminists. I enjoyed this book a lot. I'm currently reading It's Not OK To Feel Blue and Other Lies by Scarlett Curtis & Others, a book with many essays (by many authors) on mental health.
Natsuki Takaya - Fruits Basket 15: Volume 15
Natsuki Takaya - Fruits Basket 16: Volume 16
It was nice to read the next 2 volumes of the Fruits Basket series (manga). I had intended to finish the series this year (I started it this year too), but since I skipped reading from this series for a couple of months (I skipped a read-a-thon, I read library loans for another), I'm kinda behind on that. But that's okay, I will just finish it next year . The series is about the Sohma family, whose members are cursed with the Zodiac curse, they all connect to a Zodiac animal. Tohru Honda, a teenage girl who has lost her mother (and lost her father longer ago), has to live on her own. Several people of the Sohma family, invite her to live with them. She finds out more about the Zodiac curse as the books go on.
Hope Larson - All Summer Long
This is a middle-grade graphic novel about a girl. Her best friend is a boy (I am totally blanking on their names lol). He is becoming more distant and over the summer he is going to football camp. She feels lonely during this summer.
Megan McDonald (ill. Peter Reynolds) - Fleur Humeur 4: Fleur Humeur Voorspelt De Toekomst (Judy Moody 4: Judy Moody Predicts the Future)
I read Fleur Humeur 5 / Judy Moody 5 (Doctor Judy Moody) in 2018 and enjoyed it. A few months ago, I found another book in the series, at a library sale. I decided to read it for the previous BCF Read-a-thon (December). It was a nice read.
Tom Watson - Stick Dog 1: Stick Dog
This is an illustrated book about Stick Dog and his 4 friends, who want to eat a hamburger. It was funny, I enjoyed reading this story a lot.
Okay, that's caught me up so far! I'm currently reading It's Not OK To Feel Blue and Other Lies by Scarlett Curtis & Others; and Christmas 1: A Boy Called Christmas by Matt Haig.
