Like Water for Chocolate with Natalia and Three Beach Reads with Emma

Ready for the beach? Feeling hungry? We’ve got a double header of reviews that will be perfect for you. First Natalia reviews Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel, a book she campaigns for on the regular to fellow Feminist Book Club members and thinks should be required reading for everyone. Then Emma briefly reviews (no spoilers) three books she has recently read that she believes make excellent beach reads.

Renee Powers founded Feminist Book Club in 2018 to provide a space for intersectional feminists to learn, grow, and connect. When not reading or running the biz, you can find her drinking coffee and trying unsuccessfully to teach her retired racing greyhound how to fetch. Favorite genres: feminist thrillers, contemporary literary fiction, short stories, and anything that might be described as "irreverent"
