Books for Boys and Books for Girls: Problems with Gendered Reading - BOOK RIOT
I’ve always had this tendency to apologize for everything—even things that aren’t my fault, things that actually hurt me or were wrongs against me.
It’s become automatic, a compulsion I am constantly fighting. Even more disturbingly, I’ve discovered in conversations with my female friends that…
This is a phenomenal post! *snaps*
We can be our own worst enemies when it comes to teaching kids how to love reading. We tell boys — yes,Â weÂ tell boys — that they don’t like to read. That reading is something not for them. It starts at the top with us as adults and as gatekeepers (librarians, teachers, any adult who has &
The more we expose young readers to the wide variety of reading possibilities, the wide variety of how books look and feel and grow in our hands and minds, the more positive steps we take in combating gendered reading.
Maybe while we’re at it, we also stop writing about “books for boys” and “books for girls.”

BEFORE YOU BREAK Blog Tour: Interview with the author, Christina Lee (@Christina_Lee04) #NA #Romance #HEA
My college’s library is having their annual “blind date with a book.” It’s in honor of Valentine’s Day and basically you can, if you choose, check out a book that’s wrapped in brown paper with only a short description on it. Being the bookworm I am, I couldn’t resist. Mine said, “A girl learns she can talk to dead souls.” Can’t wait to read it for V-Day since according to Buzzfeed I think I’m too attractive which is why I’m single (-__- lol…no complaints there)!!

A (public) note to myself on the “eve” of my 21st birthday #perseverance #findingfaith #amwriting
As I sit in this chair I can’t help but think about how far I’ve come. I’m about to turn 21, officially in less than thirty minutes, and I’m already almost in tears. A friend just brought me a gift, a beautifully decorated container and a card. In the…
Beyond transgender stereotypes: Author Susan Kuklin
I provide scientific proof that we, black people, have in fact found the fountain of youth.
Happy Black History Month, LOL…still don’t understand why she looks so old.
To say that transgender teenagers in America have it easy would be a lie. With few protections reigning over them, both by schools and by the government, they are often left in the dark. Some are b…
This seems like it might be a really interesting/informative book.
