“HOW TO START A FEMINIST REVOLUTION:
1. Call out anything that is unfair on one gender
2. Don’t call out the same thing twice (so you can sleep and breathe)
3. Always try to keep it funny
4. Don’t let anything slide. Even when you start to break…

OH. MY. GOD.
So if you have read my blog recently, you will know how much love I have for the spinster club series and Holly Bourne in general. One thing I love about the series is how the three girls, Evie, Amber and Lottie are unique to each other but also compliment each other too. I love that although you could read the three books on their own without reading the other two, parts of the other girls stories carry on into the other books so you can read them in order and feel satisfied by it.
In terms of this book in particular, I just loved it. One thing I loved particularly about this book is the feminism. All of the books have been orientated around feminism with them creating the spinster club in am I Normal Yet but the plot is solely around feminism and particularly activism which I just love. I love that Lottie is so invested in this project but also how it is a realistic it was in terms of activism and how it can lead to burnout. I honestly can’t recommend this series enough. I can’t wait to read the novella that Holly wrote to tie up the series.

“Henry Page has never been in love. He fancies himself a hopeless romantic, but the slo-mo, heart palpitating, can’t-eat-can’t-sleep kind of love that he’s been hoping for just hasn’t been in the cards for him-at least not yet. Instead, he’s been happy to focus on his grades, on getting into a semi-decent college and finally becoming editor of his school newspaper. Then Grace Town walks into his first period class on the third Tuesday of senior year and he knows everything’s about to change.

Hi everyone! Another month, another book nook prompt! I was really excited when I saw this months prompt, props to Abbey and Tabitha for coming up with such a creative prompt. I was assuming it would be something like classics or non-fiction so when I saw this prompt I was pleasantly surprised (although I wouldn’t complain if those two prompts come up).

“Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. All this means that Eleanor has become a creature of habit (to say the least) and a bit of a loner. Continue reading “Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman”
