That Girl #13

Happy Sunday, zinesters! If you participated in Booklyn's 24-Hour Zine Challenge, I hope that you are feeling productive and accomplished right now.

Today's featured zine is That Girl #13. Kelli gives a detailed account of her difficult pregnancy, which she endured while completing a master's thesis. Talk about stressful! She was in the hospital for 65 days and her newborn son was in intensive care for 70 days. The author is not afraid to delve into some of the scarier parts of having a baby that don't always get mentioned in traditional pregnancy literature. It's a great story and I reccommend it to anyone.

Malcriada : on abuse, assimilation and Latin@ identity

You know the feeling of emptiness that you get immediately after finishing a good read? I heard someone refer to that as a "book hangover" once and thought that was a pretty great name for the feeling.

Today's zine is one of those personal zines that will give you a "book hangover" at the end. (Take note that this highly recommended zine comes with a trigger warning). Malcriada is a well-written and very personal story of surviving childhood sexual abuse. The author also writes about her difficulty she experiences with her Latina identity while living in a culture that demands assimilation.
