So time for another book review of a book i read before easter. I read this book when I was at the hospital, waiting for a surgery to remove my gallbladder.
About the book Though they have the vote and the Pill and haven't been burned as witches since 1727, life isn't exactly a stroll down the catwalk for modern women. They are beset by uncertainties and questions: Why are they supposed to get Brazilians? Why do bras hurt? Why the incessant talk about babies? And do men secretly hate them? Caitlin Moran interweaves provocative observations on women's lives with laugh-out-loud funny scenes from her own, from adolescence to her development as a writer, wife, and mother.
My Thoughts a book I really enjoyed reading. It is part a memoar which focus on how it is to grow up and how to be a woman. I found it funny, and I got thoughts going on. I like the point of view and how Caitlin Moran see feminism and how how we should see it instead of how it is today. It was a perfect read for me at the hospital and I did read it in one sitting. I laughed and the other in the room looked at me as crazy.
One thing I do like about the book is how Caitlin shows herself, and not always in the best light, and her road to be a woman, and that she still has no Idea how it is to be a woman or what it mean but that it is something we all have to work one. The book is real and hopeful.
Really enjoy reading it and I want to read Caitin Morans other books.
I told you I had plenty for reviews to upload and I will start now with one and see if I will have time to upload more later on.
First will be "The Sight" (Devil's Isle #2) by Chloe Neill
Story Claire Connolly is a Sensitive, infected with magic when the Veil that divides humanity from the world beyond fell. Magic can easily consume and destroy a Sensitive, and if Claire’s secret is discovered she’ll be locked into the walled district of Devil’s Isle along with every other Paranormal left in the city.Bounty hunter Liam Quinn discovered Claire’s secret, but refused to turn her in. Together they saved New Orleans from the resurgence of magic that nearly destroyed it. But now a dangerous cult is on the rise, and it will take both Claire and Liam—and magical allies within Devil’s Isle’s towering walls—to defeat the occult threat before magic corrupts them both... My Thoughts
So, I love this series about Devil's Isle and even if this book is a lot different from the first one it is still a very good read. The first book was excellent in so many ways and was really gripping. This, the second one, is very different even if it is still the same characters. We know the basics, we know most of the characters which makes it easier to develop a story. With this said, I wish there where a little bit more story story, or a little bit deeper because there is loads going on but it feels like we dont get into the depth of things.
There is a lot of questions in this book and leave the reader with plenty of questions, and I bet we will get answer in the third book, which I cant wait to get my hands on and have pre-ordered. Some things I am guessing and others I have no idea how they will turn out. This is a real strength in the book. I really really enjoyed the book, even if the first one was better. The story is good and the characters are funny, smart and perfect but with flaws which makes them real!
Well you all may have noticed that I havent been very active lately. Well it is because I have moved, planned a wedding, gotten a puppy and getting married. I have so many reviews to upload so it will take time but I am BACK!
