Sunday Salon- April 8, 2018

Here’s what I’ve been reading on the Internet this week:

 

-I love a good coming-of-age novel, and Book Riot makes sure I won’t run out of titles to check out any time soon, with their 50 Must-Read Coming-of-Age Books list.

-This fascinating piece of history about Breach of Promise cases: Revenge of the Jilted Women (via F Yeah History).

-At Vulture: How 50 Female Characters Were Described in Their Screenplays.

-Another powerful piece at Teen Vogue: Police Shootings Are Gun Violence, Too.

-Silver Petticoat Review shares a roundup of movies coming to the box-office this spring.

-I recently read and loved the charming WWII novel, Dear Mrs. Bird by AJ Pearce. The Pool has chosen it as their latest Bedtime Bookclub pick, which means you can read the first five chapters here. Enjoy!

  1. I’ll have to check out the Book Riot list. Thanks.
    It’s interesting. I remember that when I was a teen, Teen Vogue featured stories about fashion, celebrities, and beauty tips. Now it’s definitely gone in another direction with stories about social/political/economic issues, identity, activism, and feminism. I think that this newer direction is actually giving teens the information and resources to exist in the world, and become active, productive citizens. It’s a wonderful change.

    1. Yes! Teen Vogue is really helping to lead the resistance and is proving itself as a great resource even for those of us outside of their demographic. They also still focus on fashion, beauty, and celebrity alongside these heavier issues, and I really appreciate how they don’t belittle the former. I love that they are sending the message that teens can care about all of these interests simultaneously and that it’s not an either or situation, but rather a part of being a well-rounded person.

      1. Well said, and I agree. It also breaks down some of those stereotypes we sometimes have without realizing it. I think that maintaining some focus on fashion/beauty/celebs is good, especially if they’re able to strike a balance. It seems like that’s what they’re doing.
