Confront, Circumvent, and Create: Voicefull Recommends Minority Leader

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 …

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 …

All You Need Is Self-Love – Recommendation of Communion: The Female Search For Love

It physically pains me to say this, but I used to hate feminists. I can distinctly recall talking on the phone with my sister while at college one afternoon. I remember rolling my eyes at the word “feminist” – like, why weren’t we all just equalists? Or humanists? What was the point in dividing people …

Mandatory Reading for All American Citizens: Recommendation of Americanah

I’ve been thinking a lot about conversations lately, namely the conversations Americans are willing to have and not willing to have with their fellow citizens or residents. Conversations about politics and Confederate statues and race relations and a million other crucial topics. Sure, my Facebook and Twitter feeds are alight with these discussions, with various …

#ThursdayThoughts: The Burden of Diversity

When I decided to blog my venture into reading literature written by women of color, I did so for many reasons: To expand my own reading past a library dominated by white men, To understand myself better and to contextualize my position as a woman of color living in the U.S., and To actually understand …
