Top 5 Wednesday is a great feature created by GingerReadsLainey and hosted by ThoughtsonTomes. To find out more about Top 5 Wednesday and the upcoming topics, check out its Goodreads page. This week it’s all about those books we’ve recently thought “ooh that looks interesting, I’ll have to pick that up sometime soon” and then added them to your Amazon wishlist.
Girl Up by Laura Bates
I read and loved Everyday Sexism last year so I’m really want to read Laura Bates’ next book. From what I can gather it’s all about the pressures society puts on young girls and how the media reinforces that. Like Everyday Sexism, it will probably make me very angry but it’ll probably also be a very interesting and important book.
Girls on Fire by Robin Wassweman
I don’t have a clue how I heard about this book but it’s one of my most recent additions to my wishlist. It seems to be all about female adolescence and rebellion and I always love a book centred on girls.
This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp
I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book. It’s set during a school shooting which is obviously a tough subject but I really want to see how it’s handled.
Reality Bites Back: The Troubling Truth About Guilty Pleasure TV by Jennifer L. Powzer
I watched and loved the documentary Miss Representation and the author of Reality Bites Back was one of the women interviewed. I found her opinions interesting so I would like to hear more from her.
Nerve by Jeanne Ryan
I saw the trailer for the film adaptation of this book which stars Emma Roberts and Dave Franco (both actors I like) so now I’m interested in the book. It looks like a fast-paced story full of potentially risky or dangerous situations.
