Womanish: A Grown Black Woman Speaks on Love and Life had me at hello. I said to myself when I saw this title, shit, I am all of those things!

McLarin’s Womanish is a collection of essays that read like a thrilling roller coaster ride. First, we’re up high and squealing; the next minute we’re cruising along, easy and calm. Then, we’re back up in the air for our grand finale, spinning, twisting, going upside down, before heading back to the station to end our ride. Yeah. This book is all of those things.

If you’re looking for a book that discusses joy, sorrow, experience with a sociopath, and more, check this out.


I received an ARC from Edelweiss to read and review.
