Rage Becomes Her by Soraya Chemaly
Rage becomes ME as I continue to make my way through Soraya’s inspirational call for equality. Anger from women has become a taboo emotion in our society today. Personally, I often struggle showing my anger. Soraya urges her readers to not feel shame from their anger, but to use it as a tool for progress within their lives. Soraya blazes a new path for women everywhere. Rage is not always a useless emotion, sometimes it can be the spark you need for change.

Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
Alright, alright, I know, I know. I am now AT LEAST the third bookperson to mention this book, but I got sucked right onto the bandwagon with all of the hype my coworkers (and everyone else) have created around this book. It’s got mystery, intrigue, terrible small town drama, and heads up, a lot of imagery of self-harm. I’ve got to get to the end of this who-done-it mystery and see how life inside of Wind Gap, and life for our protagonist Camille, evolves when the mystery is solved!
