QOTD: Do you read non-fiction? 🤔🖤
Girl is an intriguing, witty, and sometimes a sad collection of essays about what it means to be a black woman in the modern world.
As always, with collection of essays, some of them will be more appealing to different people than others. And this is what makes this book so powerful. Everyone can find a therapeutical message or simply nod in approval while reading about a different subject. The segments that intrested me the most was Kenya’s path to becoming a mother, racism while trying to rent a property and the essay about actual activist in a modern world.
On top of that, I was pleased to find essay written by author we already have on our bookshelf, Candice Carty-Williams, author of Queenie. I read about her experiences trying to convince the world that the main character in her book is not the author herself.
Overall – strong and fearless book.
