12 Plus Size Friendly Books To Read This Summer

Hey girl hey ! I’m back with the reading line up, check out the first one here. Do you remember back in high school when they would give you a summer reading list right before school closed for summer break? Some of the books were mandatory some were suggested, some popular. A few of the titles put you right to sleep and some of them kept you up all night reading. But of all those stories how many of them could you actually relate too? 1 in a million right. Today I am bringing you my summer reading list. I put this list of 12 books together to give you babes some fabulous titles to read while you tan on the beach or float in the pool. All these books are either written about plus size women, in the point of view of a plus size woman or written by a plus size author. I am working my way down the list and you should too. Take some time to yourself to just relax, read and stimulate your mind.

  1. You Have the Right to Remain Fat by Virgie Tovar
  2. The Body Is Not an Apology: The Power of Radical Self-Love by Susan Renee
  3. The Not So Subtle Art of Being A Fat Girl: Loving The Skin You’re In by Tess Holiday
  4. Big Fit Girl: Embrace the Body You Have by Louise Green
  5. Curvy Yoga®: Love Yourself & Your Body a Little More Each Day by Anna Guest Jelley
  6. Big Gal Yoga: Poses and Practices to Celebrate Your Body and Empower Your Life by Valerie Sagun
  7. The Curvy Girl’s Guide to Style by Chastity Garner
  8. 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl: Fiction by Mona Awad
  9. Landwhale: On Turning Insults Into Nicknames, Why Body Image Is Hard, and How Diets Can Kiss My Ass by Jes Baker
  10. The Lighter Side of Large by Becky Siame
  11. The Fat Bridesmaid by Brooke Zaras
  12. Fat Chick, a novel by Lorraine Duffy Merkl

These books can be found online at Amazon.Com for download on the Kindle App or in your local Barnes & Nobles. But I recommend doing a google search to see if your local bookstore has it. It is important to support your local bookstores and libraries. If you’ve already read any of these titles let us know which one was your favorite but no spoilers please!  What’s on your summer reading list? Can’t wait to hear from you 🙂

A Leopard Cannot Change It’s Spots

OOTD #87: Leopard Wrap Dress
 Hey girl hey ! I am back with another look straight out of Plus Bklyn. Wrap dresses are oh so flattering on the apple shape. The silhouette in combination with the print of this dress is what made it a must have. Whether it’s classic leopard print, colored, snow or grey like this dress, you know I’m a sucker for prints. The warm, stretchy fabric reminds me of a winter waredrobe staple, the sweater dress. Perfect for the cold weather season this body con wrap dress features a V neckline, 3/4 quarter sleeves, and knee length hem.

Get playful by pairing look with colorful sunnies and a kitsch clutch like my look. If the weather is really cold try completing this look with a scarf, boots, and your favorite coat. Or go Parisian by accessorizing with a beret, bold lips, stockings and a blazer. Priced at $59.99, dress is available in sizes 1x – 3x. Happy shopping 🙂

On a sunny Saturday I caught the train to Brooklyn to have lunch with Jewels of Big N Blunt. After grabbing some delicious pizza and a cold beverage we walked and talked catching up as we made our way to Plus Bklyn.
