Non-Fiction Book Haul

 

Pimp State: Sex, Money and the Future of Equality – Kat Bantard:  I am so looking forward to reading this. I’ve read a fair number of books about feminism but I can’t wait to get stuck into this one and learn more about the sex trade.

Chavs: The Demonization of the Working Class – Owen Jones: I’m trying to broaden my horizons when it comes to reading non-fiction and move on from just feminism and Christianity and onto to some more social justice issues.

Recovery is My Best Revenge – Carolyn Spring: I picked up this book after I went to a conference run by Carolyn. Carolyn is a survivor of child sexual abuse and as a result developed dissociative identity disorder (also called multiple personality). She speaks so honestly and bluntly about everything recovery and I’m hoping to get the same from her book.

Nasty Women: A collection of essays and accounts on what it is to be a women in the 21st century: I was put off buying this for a while because I felt like the book was just using the “nasty women” thing to sell copies, but actually I really want to read this..

Hunger Pains: Life Inside Foodbank Britain – Kayleigh Garthwaite: I got this for the same reason as I bought “Chavs”, I have a few friends who work in food banks and I’ve heard alot about the growing number of people who are using them so it’ll be interesting to learn more.

The Good Immigrant: 21 writers explore what it means to be black, Asian and minority ethnic in Britain today: I’ve read very little about immigration and minorities so I think it’s about time I do!

Have any of you read any of these books? What did you think?

Katherine.
