Newfound Love: Caitlin Moran

Image result for how to build a girl

Due to a book hangover, I found myself standing in front of my bookshelves, completely clueless on what to read next. I experienced the most intense Sarah J. Maas bender, reading a whopping 5 of her books in a matter of two or three weeks (if that). However, after that bender, I found myself wanting to read more adult novels since it’s been quite a while since I’d read one. So, I narrowed my intense focus to the shelves specifically dedicated to the adult novels I own. A green spine with script reminiscent of The Bell Jar, by Sylvia Plath jumped out at me.

My decision was made.

That was three days ago, and since then I have been blasting through How to Build a Girl, by Caitlin Moran with quiet enthusiasm, whilst binge-watching every interview of the author. Her writing is hilarious and witty and so completely entertaining, I haven’t been able to put her book down. I’m already planning on ordering her other non-fiction books: How to Be a Woman and Moranthology within the next couple of days.

If you haven’t read anything from her, I suggest going and picking up one of her books, especially How to Build a Girl. I guarantee you’ll be laughing and falling in love with the quirky teenage heroine, Johanna Morrigan.

Happy Reading!
