Book Review: The Body is Not an Apology

Switching things up on the blog to not just include tarot but to include reviews of books that are close to my heart and making a big impact on my radical body love journey. I just finished up reading The Body is Not an Apology by Sonya Renee Taylor and I thought I would share my thoughts on the blog.

About the author:
Sonya Renee Taylor is the author of a few books, one of which is coming out this May and is called Celebrate Your Body, it's aimed for children and teens. Sonya is the Founder and Radical Executive Officer of The Body is Not An Apology. She is also an award winning poet and activist. You can read more about the author here.

My thoughts:
I loved this book! It was inspiring and eye opening. Just when I didn't think I could learn anything new, I was smacked in the face by the words Sonya has written. This book not only talks about your body but the impact we make on the bodies around us... disabilities, POC, trans, fat bodies, and more. Sonya talks about body terrorism and how it shows up in our daily lives, our communities, and in our media. This book really put some things into perspective for me that I didn't think I was doing or things that I may have overlooked, some as simple as words we use. I highly recommend this book to anyone, especially if you are interested in all bodies and how you can help make a difference in your life as well as help others around you.

Grab this book over on Amazon

FYI: I am not driving in the picture above, I'm parked in the parent pick-up line for an hour, just thought I would note that.
