Get To Know Me By My Books. 

Hi!

You know when you read a magazine such as ELLE, they always have the cover star, or somebody else, deaptailing the books that formed part of their identity? For this post, I thought I’d do the same; I get to write about books, and not much else 😂

How to be a women By Caitlin Moran.

This is such a brilliant book! I think I was twelve when this came out, but didn’t read it ’till a year later. I hadn’t come across a writer as unique as Moran-convinced by her ideas, apt at turning a phrase, able to use a swear word at least once a paragraph, and still remain serious. She is part of the reason why I now describe myself as ‘feminist’. I’d also love to interview her.

The Diary Of Anne Frank.

History lessons these days are primarily about the facts these days-why X led to Y, and so on. I want to read about the human side of history! This book I read first when I was six or seven, I think; it made a lasting impression.

Searching for Grace Kelly.

Contrary to what you may think, I do enjoy some fiction, as long as it’s grounded, and at least seems plausible, in terms of writing, etc. Anyway, this book is about the fifties, and the lives of three very different women, and how they come to New York to accomplish their dreams. I like it for it’s authentic history, and how it informs me-we aren’t this way any more, so be grateful for what we’ve gained.
