THE MILLIONS BOOK PREVIEW IS HERE: A Links Round-Up

That’s all I have to tell you this morning. THE MILLIONS BOOK PREVIEW IS HERE. GET PUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMPED.

THE MILLIONS BOOK PREVIEW. SIREN EMOJI.

Intisar Khanani discusses her journey from self-publishing to traditional publishing. (If you haven’t read her books yet, you should do it now! I love her!)

It’s good to change your opinion! On not widening the feminist generation gap.

Why do women writers hate themselves? Maybe we’re asking the wrong question.

YA author Dhonielle Clayton (her book The Belles is coming out later in the year!) talks about what sensitivity readers do, and why they aren’t nearly enough.

Karen Attiah argues that Western media has a problem with depicting African nations as if they are shitholes — it’s not just Trump. (If you’re not following Karen Attiah, you should be!)

Jezebel gets to the heart of the thing (well one of the things) that made me uncomfortable about that Aziz Ansari thing. Here’s some additional thoughts (both about the thing itself and conversations around the thing, with lots of good links) from the Lakshmi and Asha Show.

Ijeoma Oluo has the conversation about race with her mom that she’s been dreading. You should preorder her book cause it looks like it’s going to be really good.

I hope y’all are all staying warm this week! Have a wonderful weekend with lots of reading!

  1. Awesome links! DO women writers hate themselves?? I’m gonna have to click to find out more. And I do enjoy that Millions preview twice a year!

  2. Ha ha – that last comment from “ezreader;” that was me! I am commenting from a work computer where another coworker was already signed in to Discus! Whoops. Anyway, good looking links!

  3. The Aziz Ansari thing is odd to me and yet it is the one thing I was worried was going to happen with the #metoo movement. There has always been an underlying concern that women would like about sexual assault as a form of blackmail. How many movies and books have there been over the years showing this exact thing after all? So, it does not surprise me that people are questioning the poor girl’s story. It angers me that they are, and it infuriates me that women are the ones doing it. Is what he did on the same scale as Weinstein? No, but that does not make it right no matter what. This is such a tricky area, and it is going to take a long time to unravel all the nuances of it.
