July Mini Book Haul

Three books I've added to my stash that have some big expectations from me (read: I think these books are going to be really fab)

Let's start this one off with a bang, shall we? A large feminist bang in the name of Girl Up by Laura Bates. Earlier in the year I read Everyday Sexism by the same author and it kind of changed everything for me. If you haven't read that book I really recommend it, but Girl Up is also a fantastic one, especially if you're younger. I've already started reading this and I can see how it would be great for teenagers who want to know more about feminism and why it should matter to them. There's a whole lot of advice in here regarding tricky scenarios adolescents may find themselves in and how to deal with all that blatant sexism out there.

It's Not Me, It's You by Mhairi McFarlane is a book I'm just a bit excited for (a lot, really) considering I adored Mhairi's latest release Who's That Girl. I think Mhairi's writing tends to captivate me in a way many books fail in doing, and makes reading new adult/adult fiction exciting. I have a feeling I'm going to whizz right through this and it's going to be funny, witty and engaging which is what I expect and more from Mhairi McFarlane. There seems to be a big theme in her writing of the protagonist trying to get back onto their feet after life throws them under. Her writing is all about discovering a powerful inner self and realising the dick actions of someone else is not your fault.

Holly Bourne is one of my favourite authors and it's about time I read her latest releases, starting with How Hard Can Love Be which is #2 in the Normal series, although they can be read as standalone books rather than in order. Amber, Lottie and Evie are part of The Spinster Club where they eat cheesy snacks and discuss feminism (both important tbh). This book focuses on Amber, her move to America, and the love issues that follow. Even with Lottie and Evie's advice, there's no denying love is hard. Don't be fooled by the cheesy romance stuff because if I know Holly, she does it in a fab fab way. If you haven't picked up one of her books, please do it now.

What book most pipes your interest? I'd love to know!
