I absolutely loved Ship It! It hit me right in the feels! Which fandom book made you squee this year?
What diverse book did you read this year? What did you learn about other people because you read it? What did you learn about yourself from reading it?
This post is long overdue.
I've been sitting on it for too long, worried about potential backlash. And I'm sorry. I'm sorry to all those who would benefit from finding themselves in these stories. I'm sorry to all those who would find solidarity in them and to all those who would feel less alone because of their trauma.
These books are not fun or light or easy to read. But they are important and give courage to those who have experienced sexual assault and teach those who have not been such victims how to be allies and why it is important to fight for them and to fight to stop it from happening with such frequency in the future.
Bravo, you. You are strong and beautiful and courageous. You can overcome this.
