Today I’m coming at you with a non-spoiler review of Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu!
It’s time to fight like a girl!
Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with her high school teachers who think the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes, hallway harassment and gross comments from guys during class. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.
Viv’s mum was a tough-as-nails, punk rock Riot Grrrl in the ’90s, and now Viv takes a page from her mother’s past and creates Moxie, a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She’s just blowing off steam, but other girls respond and spread the Moxie message. As Viv forges friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, she realises that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.
TIME TO FIGHT LIKE A GIRL
A page-turning read with a feminist message, for anyone who has ever had to deal with #everydaysexism

Today I’ll be reviewing Wildcat by JP Harker! I recently finished it and I found it enjoyable. So without further ado, let’s just get started.
Rhianwyn of the Caderyn is conflicted about giving up a warrior’s life to become a wife and mother, but her love for her new husband is enough to at least make her consider it. However, with the conquering Gaians moving ever closer to her homeland a peaceful life may no longer be an option, for Rhia or for any of her people. With rival tribes, old suitors, and the dangerous General Lepidus to contend with, Rhia soon finds her new family in unprecedented danger, and her choices now must be about more than just herself…
Wildcat takes place in a fantasy land inspired by Iron Age Britain and follows Rhianwyn’s story as she encounters a civilisation unlike any she could imagine, and is constantly forced to learn and adapt through trial after deadly trial.
Today I wanted to write about a topic I’ve been thinking about a lot. Is there a pressure to read a certain amount of books here in the community? It’s been discussed a lot recently, so I thought it would be a good time to add my own two cents.
And yet another month has passed! I almost can’t believe 2017 is almost over. This month was an okay month for me. My reading and blogging slumps of last month is now over, so that’s great. School was still very busy though! I did have a holiday in the beginning of the month and I went to Sevilla, Cordoba and Granada! Continue reading
To celebrate that I’ve been blogging here for an entire year, I’ve decided to host a giveaway! I’m super excited about this and I hope you are too! I want to thank everyone who has supported me in the last year and I thought this was an amazing way to do it!
Today I’m doing something controversial, a unhaul. I have unhauled books a few times over the years, but this is the first time I’m talking about it on my blog. I don’t know why, but I love to watch or read unhauls myself. There are a few controversial books in here, so without further ado, let’s get started!
