Is it too early to start making 2021 TBRs? Sending a huge thank you to @bibliolifestyle and @harperonebooks for this copy of GIRL GURL GRRRL by Kenya Hunt! #partner As soon as I heard this compared to Roxane Gay’s Bad Feminist and Issa Rae’s The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, I knew I had to read it! This is going straight on my January TBR! Synopsis👇🏾 “Black women have never been more visible or more publicly celebrated than they are now. But for every new milestone, every magazine cover, every box office record smashed, every new face elected to public office, the reality of everyday life for black women remains a complex, conflicted, contradiction-laden experience. An American journalist who has been living and working in London for a decade, Kenya Hunt has made a career of distilling moments, movements, and cultural moods into words. Her work takes the difficult and the indefinable and makes it accessible; it is razor sharp cultural observation threaded through evocative and relatable stories. Girl Gurl Grrrl both illuminates our current cultural moment and transcends it. Hunt captures the zeitgeist while also creating a timeless celebration of womanhood, of blackness, and the possibilities they both contain. She blends the popular and the personal, the frivolous and the momentous in a collection that truly reflects what it is to be living and thriving as a black woman today.” Also this beauty is out tomorrow so keep an eye out for it in your libraries and local bookstores!
