White Tears Brown Scars: How White Feminism Betrays Women of Colour

Ruby Hamad


Ahead of my local Writers' Week I'm reading Ruby Hamad's illuminating critique into white privilege and playing the damsel in distress to cover casual racism. Powerful, devastating and well-researched I think this is an incredible piece of work all white women can learn from. - Michaela


Amanda Eyre Ward

£8.99 £8.54

I just cracked open the advanced copy of this book and I’m already loving the characters! I really like that I can already tell who’s going to be my favorite. - Melissa

Topics of Conversation

Miranda Popkey

£8.99 £8.54

Breezing through this #bookstagram favorite about female psychology, rage, and sexuality, told through a series of conversational vignettes between the narrator and various women. Popkey has a fluid style of writing that draws you under and keeps you there. - Nikki


Celeste Barber

£24.95 £23.70

Celeste Barber is insta-famous for her realistic #challengeaccepted recreations of celeb pics. She is an incredibly hilarious Australian who, while being adored by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon, has had a few extraordinary struggles in life but is as normal as your average Aussie. - Courtney

Minor Feelings: A Reckoning on Race and the Asian Condition

Cathy Park Hong

£9.99 £9.49

A few pages into this book I felt immersed in the experience of reckoning the Asian American experience in this blend of memoir, social commentary, and intellectual look into what this means. I love when poets write books because their prose is unparalleled. - Karen

Disappearing Earth

Julia Phillips

£8.99 £8.54

An atmospheric debut in which mood and sense of place are just as important as plot. Each chapter gives us insight on a different character and their struggles, but they're tied together by common threads and themes - particularly ideas around loneliness, race, and patriarchy. - Cat
