I just started The Joy Luck Club the other day and am already so in love with it! It also seems like a rather fitting time to be reading it
Yesterday I could barely look at my FB news feed because I was (and still am) filled with fear and anxiety about the direction the US is going in. However, today all I have been seeing are posts from Women's Marches around the world (THE WORLD!!) and photos and videos from friends marching and standing up for their rights. I'm brimming with hope for future generations and love and pride for my fellow humans.
"I never knew how much I loved Ted until I saw how much he could hurt me. I felt such pain, literally a physical pain, as if someone had torn off both arms without anesthesia, without sewing me back up." -The Joy Luck Club
On my reading list this year is to read more classic books. My focus is on women and non-white authors. The only book in this stack I've read is The Bell Jar, but it's been since high school. I finally picked up a copy to own myself.
What's a classic you enjoyed that was wriiten by a woman?
