The Bookshelf: The End of War

Unsplash Earlier this month, I talked about the books I’ve been working on reading lately. Among those, the book I was most excited about and was most enjoying was The End of War by John Horgan, which I’d only picked up as a last-minute purchase at a Barnes & Noble a couple blocks from my office (all in all, it was a pretty successful trip given how much I also loved the other book I bought that night,...more

Unsplash This post has been an incredibly difficult one for me to write. For months, I’ve thought about it and have even written ideas down in my notebook, in my phone, and on post-it notes that get stuffed to the bottom of my purse.

I love reading, and at any given time I have at least five books sitting on my bedside table that I’m in the middle of reading, and plenty more sitting on my bookshelf, in the living room, and in my purse. Over the last few months, I’d taken to writing a reading goals post each month, with about three books that I planned to read that month; and what I’ve noticed is that those are almost never the books I end up reading ....more

It’s that time of month again, and I couldn’t be more excited to be taking the F-Word Link-Up into 2015.

So to celebrate making it to our sixth month of this link-up, today I want to talk about what happened for feminism in 2014 ....more
