Unapologetic women. Inspiring women. Women who question societal norms. Women who lead from the front. Historical figures who have shaped the modern Indian woman of today who challenges patriarchy on a daily basis.
Fatty Fatty Boom Boom by Rabia Chaudry is a memoir not just about food but also about fat shaming, body image, and the author’s lifelong struggle with it. A book about family, loving yet oppressive, with their subtle and not-so-subtle jabs about her weight and color. A public figure who struggled with body image before finally coming to accept her body.
We began a conversation on asexuality last month as a part of Blogchatter’s #CauseAChatter campaign. We continue with must-read non-fiction picks including some graphic novels. For teens and adults alike.
Somewhere Sisters by Erika Hayaski peels back the layers to uncover the harsh truths of interracial and transnational adoptions. Asian and Asian American identity, the nature versus nurture debate, poverty and privilege, and what it means to give a child a good life.
It has been a while since I shared a reading update. June started on a high note with Pride Month reads and summer picks. But it has also been an eventful summer. As always, books have come to the rescue keeping me sane through it all.
One of the highlights of summer at Blogchatter is the #BlogchatterEbook carnival. A platform for authors in the community to get published. And a delight for book lovers to sample a range of books, free for a limited time.
It’s July. Among all the things I look forward to this month (including a well-deserved long weekend), is the book freak out tag. As much as I enjoy participating in the tag, I also enjoy reading all the posts from the book community. The graphs, the statistics, and last but not the least, the recommendations.
Happy Pride Month! Today I share with you must-read Indian LGBTQIA+ memoirs and personal narratives. If you are new to the genre or want to explore more Indian writings, these recommendations are a great place to start.
Happy June! It has been an excellent reading month with titles across genres. And not a single DNF. As we step into the LGBTQ+ Pride Month, I plan to diversify my reads concentrating on more queer books. Particularly by Asian authors.
Hello there! Been a while. It is great to be back after a mini-hiatus of sorts. And I am all raring to go, sharing what I have been reading lately.
