If you’re like us, you totally love a good feminist read, and you also love to look at pretty books all day. As if you needed another reason to be Insta-obsessed, @half_book_and_co is exactly what you’ve been looking for. Because YAY, feminist books! An account dedicated to African literature(s), women, people of color, and queer writers, and feminist sentiments, this gorgeous Instagram account is the perfect balance of super pretty books, and super important books.
