Kat's Books

Photographer, book reviewer, mama, cat-lover in Seattle. Originally from England. I'm usually busy taking cat photos at a cat rescue or reading books...

I put my reviews up on Goodreads, Amazon, and the Penguin First to Read program. I have MS so I'm tired a lot but it's a good excuse to have a lie-down and read! My Litsy handle is kamoorephoto

Powerful, brutal look at 'rape culture'

The Female of the Species - Mindy McGinnis

‘The female of the species is more deadly than the male’- Rudyard Kipling
Author Mindy McGinnis takes this quote from another (beloved) author and runs with it, in this haunting, tragic teen novel that revolves around what some call ‘rape culture’. I hate to have those two words put together, but at the center of this book, one girl takes matters into her own hands, and says ENOUGH. It’s gut-wrenching, brutal, and some won’t like it, but I LOVED it.
