Who Run the World?! 7 Books for Women’s Equality Day

in Potpourri by

First thing’s first – here’s the soundtrack for this article:   On this glorious day, August 26, in the glorious year of 1920, the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was certified as law. For anyone not up on their Constitutional Amendments (YOU SHOULD BE), that’s the one that gave women the right to vote. So, to commemorate the date, we have Women’s Equality Day, a holiday that celebrates ladies getting a right we should have had from the very beginning. Women’s Equality Day is a well-intentioned holiday that’s still a bit touchy, mainly because the subject of women’s equality is still about as frustrating and divisive as it was in 1920. The gender wage gap is still a…

Rich and Pretty: A Socialite’s Summer Reading List

in Fiction by

Once summer rolls around all I daydream about is strolling down the bustling Manhattan streets in my favorite summer dress, with the perfect pair of wedges and a bright clutch to finish off the perfect ensemble. Once I have the look, then I obviously need somewhere to show it off! In my daydream I’m making stops at trendy rooftop bars, picking between the tropical 230 Fifth next to the Empire State Building or Hotel Chantelle down on the Lower East Side. Hey, I may have read too many Gossip Girl books in my life, but a girl can dream! Truthfully though, the array of rooftop bars is unlimited in the Big Apple and trying to find the time to hit them all can be a bit overwhelming. So for every daydreamer out there…

April’s Author Crush: Why We’re Obsessing Over Kristen Ashley

in Romance by

My intense love for romance author Kristen Ashley is getting so out of control it’s borderline stalking at this point. I’ve read almost every single book she’s published, pre-ordered titles months in advance, and I check her website obsessively for information about new projects. At this point, I’ve probably invested more money into her work than I have into my own student debt. #noregrets Which is why Ashley is the perfect author to feature as my Author Crush this month (and, um, every month, to be honest). Not only is she crazy prolific (if my count is right, since 2011 Ashley has published 54 books – in five years people!!) she’s one of those rare self-published authors whose quality of work never seems to…

Smart Reads: Real Life Heroes, Villains and Monsters

in Non-Fiction by

Villains and monsters are so much more frightening in the world of non-fiction. While we can reassure ourselves that the horrors of fiction aren’t real and sleep with the lights on, the comfort in non-fiction lies in the books themselves. By shining a light on the darkest hearts we lessen their hold upon us. At the same time, heroes are burnished in the spotlight’s glow, reminding us that good can ultimately prevail. This week we have five Smart Reads about the heroes, villains and monsters who have walked among us: My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem (Random House, October 27, 2015) “Rarely do women have the opportunity to travel as Steinem has done—living a life full of radical…
