I’ve been reading books so fast that I actually got to a point this weekend where I didn’t have anything immediately queued up. Not even any ARCs or NetGalley items waiting! It was freeing, in that I got to look around my shelves for what was waiting, but it also felt kind of terrifying not to have that planned already! Luckily a friend recently lent me her copy of Slay by Britney Morris, which I’ve been so excited to read! Started that one up – and it has not disappointed. 😀
Here’s a quote from early in the book where I knew it would be as good as I hoped:
They give us our own shit to distract us from the fact that we don’t have control over their shit.Slay by Britney Morris, p13
The clear inherent power in designating things for others and the inaccurate reversal of that power hit me hard here.
