What We’re Reading This Week

Can We All Be Feminists?: New Writing from Brit Bennett, Nicole Dennis-Benn, and 15 Others on Intersectionality, Identity, and the Way Forward for Feminism Cover ImageCan We All Be Feminists? by June Eric-Udorie

This has been, by far, one of the most intersectional and illuminating books I’ve ever read. Written almost entirely by women of color about the intersections of feminism and race, class, sexual orientation, disability, and more. This book made me a better feminist.

The Supernatural Enhancements Cover ImageThe Supernatural Enhancements by Edgar Cantero

Edgar Cantero made his English novel debut with this book! He writes in Spanish and Catalan, as well as being a talented cartoonist. His books are scary, funny, and vivid. They’re composed of characters so odd that you can’t help but fall in love with them. Edgar Cantero has easily become my current favorite author.

Small Steps (Holes Series) Cover ImageSmall Steps by Louis Sachar

This book is marketed as a sequel to Holes, but really it just follows Armpit and X-Ray a couple of years after the events of Holes. It’s a cute story filled with schemes run by X-Ray, Armpit being friends with his young neighbor who suffers from Cerebral Palsy, and a young pop star who invades all their lives. Plus, this book is set in Austin!
