A Delicious Education: Voicefull Recommends Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat

Is there anything more relaxing than peeling a bulb of garlic? Along with reading romance, listening to power ballads from the 1980’s, and shouting about the benefits of leading an introspective, feminist life, it’s my favorite thing to do. There’s something magnetic about coaxing the paper-thin skin away to unveil each magnificent, cream-white clove. The …

Confront, Circumvent, and Create: Voicefull Recommends Lead from the Outside

I don’t want to put all of my political eggs in one basket, but I really think we as a country should hand everything over to Stacey Abrams. When I think of her campaign for the governorship of Georgia this past year, and the way in which she is now dedicating her time to fighting …

A Love Made for the Resistance: Voicefull Recommends Let It Shine

Happy Black History Month! I had originally planned on posting this recommendation last week, but because I am a proponent of celebrating romance every day of the year, I figured I'd wait a couple of days and send you all a dose of love after the chocolatey, red-petaled euphoria of Valentine’s Day had fully waned. …

The Spirit Must Endure: Voicefull Recommends An Ember in the Ashes

This is the book I never intended to read. I’ll explain. I first heard of Sabaa Tahir through Instagram, probably through one of the many YA authors that I follow on that platform, and I fell in love with her immediately. She is in full command of some truly delicious snark, makes her vegetables talk …

Hope and Imperfection: Voicefull Recommends White Dancing Elephants

Happy 2019, lovers of books! It’s been a while, I know. I can’t apologize for the time I took away from Voicefull because in that time I, among other personal feats, outlined and wrote 36,000 words of a novel that’s been in my brain since 2012, which for me is freaking stupendous. I learned a …

No Shame, Only Romance: Recommendation of Wrong to Need You

Every time I’m in a new city, I make it a point to visit at least one local bookstore. If I’m lucky, I get to check out a few independent stores, like The Ripped Bodice right outside of Los Angeles or Rhino Booksellers in Nashville. And if I’m there for a few days, I will …

The Batman We Need – Recommendation of Batman: Nightwalker

I grew up in the age of the excellent Batman: The Animated Series and the dark, gritty world of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy. These interpretations pushed me into the complex comic lore, endless T-shirts, an undying worship of Heath Ledger, and even a surprisingly interesting Batman and Philosophy book I stumbled onto at …

Lift Every Voice and Heal – Recommendation of When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir

When I was a senior in high school, I wrote an essay arguing against affirmative action in the college admissions process. Rooted in the belief that non-white students deserve to be treated exactly the same as white students, I argued that the only true way to achieve this kind of equality was through a merit-based …

Let’s Joyfully Destroy That Patriarchy: Recommendation of Sister Outsider

The best recommendations I’ve ever gotten for new books or writers have come to me not from fellow readers, but from the authors whose stories have stayed with me over the years. I had heard Audre Lorde’s name before as an English major at UVA, but I never sought out any of her work until …
