Hi everyone! Welcome to another book nook post. One reason I love the blogger book nook is that it takes me out of my reading comfort zone, and this did exactly that. This month’s prompt was murder in the library and I have to admit I did struggle with it. There were quite a few books I could have chosen but I had a hard time choosing, so much so I didn’t think I would be reading a book for this month’s prompt. However, I did eventually settle with What I couldn’t tell you by Faye Bird.
“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.
Have you read what’s a girl gotta do? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
Thanks for reading!
