FF: Book Moments that made my little feminist heart flutter

It’s Femme Friday! I normally reserve my list making for Top Ten Tuesdays, but I couldn’t help myself. I had just read a few books that made my heart flutter and wanted to share those moments along with some other great ones from throughout the year. I’m not one to flat out call a book feminist because there can be a bit of a hard line and … Continue reading FF: Book Moments that made my little feminist heart flutter

Lumberjanes: Beyond the Bay

Review: I really love the way this comic reminds me of the way “girly” stuff is completely awesome despite all the ways that others try to present it. Hello unicorns! What’s to Love: It’s our first-ever Lumberjanes special and we could not be more excited to welcome writer Faith Erin Hicks (The Adventures of Superhero Girl) and newcomer artist Rosemary Valero-O’Connell to our growing Lumberteam. … Continue reading Lumberjanes: Beyond the Bay

Lumberjanes Vol 5 (#17-20): Band Together

Review: So, to be completely honest, I didn’t read this in volume form. The volume isn’t out yet but the synopsis is and so are all the issues. Here’s the synopsis: The Lumberjanes meet rock n’ roll mermaids! Excited for the annual Bandicoot Bacchanal, Ripley recruits her friends to help her get ready for the dance. But before the Lumberjanes know it, something mysterious begins … Continue reading Lumberjanes Vol 5 (#17-20): Band Together

FF: Great Girlfriends!

Between I Thought It Was Just Me pointing out the way people think women and can’t be friends and are just catty and reading Lumberjanes yesterday, I realized that books about great girlfriends would make a great Femme Friday post this week! There really is this horrible idea that women don’t go along, that we just have to be or are naturally catty and obstinate toward each … Continue reading FF: Great Girlfriends!

Lumberjanes Vol 4: Out Of Time (#13-16)

Review: This is one of my favorite comic series. For reviews of prior volumes, click on the number: 1, 2, and 3. This volume begins by going back to the beginning of the summer and how the girls all met in the first part and then jumps forward again for the rest. A new problem is introduced along with some history on the Lumberjanes Camp itself. It’s all … Continue reading Lumberjanes Vol 4: Out Of Time (#13-16)

Lumberjanes Vol 3 (#9-12)

Review: This volume isn’t quite as exciting as the last two, but it’s still plenty of fun. Personally, it’s these girls. They make me nostalgic for a similar group of friends that I’ve had in the past. Here’s the back cover: This New York Times Bestselling series continues with Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley as they take on everything that goes bump in the … Continue reading Lumberjanes Vol 3 (#9-12)
