July Reading List

Without the holiday, June wasn’t as good for reading as it should have been. Still, I managed to tick off all of these:

Exploited by Emma Jackson

It’s not a well written book – there’s a lot of meandering and there are important points that feel glossed over – but it’s an important one. Emma Jackson was sexually exploited by men in her community. She was groomed, entrapped and then threatened. This sort of thing is happening everywhere, and it’s important that we understand it better from the victim’s perspective, because society is failing them by allowing this sort of horror to take place. Read it and have your eyes opened.
