My friend Shae put together a playlist for Code Name Verity and it made me cryyyy.

BookCon had an all male Paper Towns panel and I got mad about it.

I love this modern day Persephone art. Also, TEA DRAGONS.

The TEDWomen conference turns away a nursing mother because they don’t allow kids and made no childcare provisions. So that’s cool.

Representation Matters: Misty Copeland & Raven Wilkinson

10 new & debut Asian American YA authors to look out for.

I’m not a huge fan of You’ve Got Mail (sorry not sorry) but I did love this quote.

My friend Kaye started the #YesAllWomen hashtag and a year later she wrote a piece on staring it and what happened next.

My friend Jael wrote this post as a response to the news about Josh Duggar. It’s an honest, heartfelt story and I’m so proud of her for sharing it.

Every time I see a poem by Clementine Von Radics, it really captures something real & deep. This one is no exception.

“Over the past few years I’ve become increasingly interested in making sense of the circumstances that allow people to take a stance against or for something, both in stories and in life. I’ve been thinking a lot about activism and exhaustion and hope. I don’t think bravery as an individual character trait accounts for much; instead I’ve come to believe that, as Dais put it, we draw strength from the knowledge that we’re not alone, that we have more friends than we imagined.” This something I’ve also been thinking about in the past few years, and Ana puts it perfectly in this post.
