Interesting Book Titles - Blog Hop
Thanks for visiting Tea Time with Marce
When you are in the mood and have time for networking, a fun way would be to participate in the Blog Hop over at Jennifer blog Crazy for Books.
Are you a book blogger? Are you a reader? Then welcome to the place where all of us connect over the weekend and chat about books!
“Let’s talk crazy book titles! Highlight one or two (or as many as you like!) titles in your personal collection that have the most interesting titles! If you can’t find any, feel free to find one on the internet!”
Crazy, interesting or both.
If a stranger asked what are you reading, I would love to know their thoughts going through their head when I say, I am not a Serial Killer, lol
Now that can be labeled as a crazy title. Maybe i'll be labeled also.
I haven't read this one yet but look forward to it, I consider this an interesting title.
Book Summary from Amazon
The acclaimed author of the groundbreaking bestseller Schoolgirls reveals the dark side of pink and pretty: the rise of the girlie-girl, she warns, is not that innocent.
Pink and pretty or predatory and hardened, sexualized girlhood influences our daughters from infancy onward, telling them that how a girl looks matters more than who she is. Somewhere between the exhilarating rise of Girl Power in the 1990s and today, the pursuit of physical perfection has been recast as a source—the source—of female empowerment. And commercialization has spread the message faster and farther, reaching girls at ever-younger ages.
But, realistically, how many times can you say no when your daughter begs for a pint-size wedding gown or the latest Hannah Montana CD? And how dangerous is pink and pretty anyway—especially given girls' successes in the classroom and on the playing field? Being a princess is just make-believe, after all; eventually they grow out of it. Or do they? Does playing Cinderella shield girls from early sexualization—or prime them for it? Could today's little princess become tomorrow's sexting teen? And what if she does? Would that make her in charge of her sexuality—or an unwitting captive to it?
