Here are my two picks for underhyped books: Evicted and Me, My Hair, and I. I haven't actually read either of these books yet, but the few things I have heard have been wonderful. I feel like nonfiction books are always underhyped because people get this ideas that because it is real that means the story won't flow quite as well, or not be as astounding, or something! I've not found that to be the case at all. It all depends on how the author captures the story, and what language they use to do it justice. 📚📚📚
Anyway, Evicted is written from an outsiders perspective by a journalist/sociologist who goes to live in the places where people are getting evicted and captures their stories. The subtitle for this book is Poverty and Profit in the American City. I'm so excited to dive into it - it's next on my agenda! 📚📚📚
Me, My Hair, and I is a collection of essays written by 27 different women, and while hair may be the conversation starter, these essays are more personal and political histories, stories of the strength and resilience of women, than they are simply stories about hair.
