Shrill by Lindy West

Lindy West is a woman who doesn’t back down. Whether something is uncomfortable, embarrassing, or painful, she doesn’t shy away from it. A blunt, insightful feminist, she discusses the many battles women face today head-on, speaking freely about everything from her weight to Internet trolls to sexism in stand-up comedy. She covers serious stuff, but her wit, openness, and self-deprecation make it both accessible and funny.  —Flannery

The Geek Feminist Revolution by Kameron Hurley

This book is a fire under the butt for any aspiring writer. It is a scathing (and accurate) analysis of key aspects of our current pop culture. It is a review of the major upsets in the sci-fi/geek world in the past few years, from Gamergate to Puppygate. It is above all an inspiration to all to stay aware, to stay responsible, to stay angry, to stay hungry. Kameron Hurley is my new hero.   —Jocelyn

Selfish, Shallow and Self-Absorbed Edited by Meghan Daum

As baby boomers retire, Gen X fades into the Millenial and now the Gen Z generations, our definitions of family and adulthood have become more fluid than they once were. One of the most marked differences is the changing priority regarding having children. Meghan Daum gathers 16 authors to talk about their decision not to have children and what that decision has meant to them. A fascinating exploration of an ongoing discussion for our society.  —Jocelyn
