allchildren: her majesty susan pevensie (▭ my ears are so young.)
1. Fun, involved novels of any genre (other than straight up romance) that feature a happy(ish)-ending lesbian relationship. See also: Fingersmith.

2. Feminist nonfiction, preferably sans heavy academic jargon, that examines how femininity is treated/demonized/subject to internalized misogyny by women/feminists/society at large. See also: Whipping Girl.

2b. Feminist nonfiction, preferably sans heavy academic jargon, that discusses/defines the (queer) femme identity and how it relates to/diverges from superficial/commercial trappings.

3. The books of any genre (special interests: nonfiction, sci-fi) that you personally think are great and entertaining and important to have read. (Obviously, if you know my tastes feel free to make specific me-ward recs!) No, really. I recently read a mediocre book and it honestly made me cranky. Why am I wasting time and money on a mediocre book? I live in a great world. Greatness only need apply.

This is probably a bad time to be asking, but maybe you will be bored on Monday morning and come back to me. I would love to hear from you.

PS: I am currently privileging marginalized voices in my reading over straight white cis dude ones, but will consider those if they are saying something special.
