Book review: What Would Boudicca Do?

I don't know if you've noticed but I can't get enough of these books about awesome women often forgotten by the history books. From Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls to A Glorious Freedom, and everything in between, there's something for feminists of all ages. My latest favourite is What Would Boudicca Do?: Everyday Problems… Continue reading Book review: What Would Boudicca Do?

Blog Tour: The Incendiaries by R.O. Kwon

I've been working on widening my reading this year. Last year I read a lot of books by and about strong women, which is always awesome, but this year I've been a bit more conscious of the types of stories I consume and the cultures I'm familiar with. This year I've been reading the likes… Continue reading Blog Tour: The Incendiaries by R.O. Kwon

The Truth About Love and Writing

Some of my favourite non-fiction books are those which focus on two of my main passions: books and writing. Of course, it also helps when they're little stunners too, like these new releases from Abrams + Chronicle. With a foil stamped cover and colourful edge standing, Bookstagram never looked so good! The Truth About Love*… Continue reading The Truth About Love and Writing

What I’ve been reading lately #9

I've read 42 books so far this year, so I'm only about six to eight weeks away from hitting my GoodReads target of 50. I smashed it with 64 last year, so we'll see where we end up in a few months. I recently reactivated my library card, which has allowed me to catch up… Continue reading What I’ve been reading lately #9

What Jenson has been reading lately #3

I've spent the last three years listening to people tell me how much Jenson looks like his dad. Don't get me wrong, it's cute and all, but I really relish the moments when I see how much he gets from me. Like, the kid can not get enough cheese, just like his mumma (and her… Continue reading What Jenson has been reading lately #3

Book review: Bosom Buddies by Violet Zhang and Sally Nixon

If there's one thing that's got me through the last few years of working mum life, it's the power of female friendships - and I flippin' love seeing them celebrated. In a time where women are often portrayed as bitchy and jealous, it's great to see a supportive sisterhood, especially in a pretty yet powerful… Continue reading Book review: Bosom Buddies by Violet Zhang and Sally Nixon

What I’ve been reading lately #8

Thanks to my fantastic working relationship with a few fab book publishers and my recently renewed library account, I'm never short of something to read. In fact, my TBR has gotten a bit out of hand and I've had to schedule my reading around library renewals and publication dates. Here's a little look at what… Continue reading What I’ve been reading lately #8

Book review: Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

I'm finishing my Feminist Book Fortnight posts with a review of Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. It's a great follow-up to We Should All Be Feminists and is probably going to be my go-to gift for everyone this year. A few years ago, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie received… Continue reading Book review: Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Blogger Book Nook #10: Summer Romance

If you're new to these parts, I recently joined a Facebook book group called Blogger Book Nook. It's a fun online book club but, rather than picking a book for everyone to read and comment on a month, it's based around a theme/genre, so there are no arguments around titles and there's a good chance… Continue reading Blogger Book Nook #10: Summer Romance

Book review: A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf

I don't want to brag here (much!) but I'm doing so well with my book choices lately. I'm on a streak of titles which are nothing short of eye-opening, inspiring and empowering. The latest is Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own*. I know what you're thinking: but, Emma, you studied English at GCSE and… Continue reading Book review: A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf
