Whoa, so this month has absolutely flown! And I realised I, firstly, haven’t posted much this month, and secondly, haven’t posted any books for pride month! It’s been a very social month, and I have been to a fair few events in celebration of pride month, and they have all been so lovely, warm and welcoming. So, happy pride month everyone! 🌈❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
I wrote the word “month” so many times that it now looks weird...
Anywhooo, because I’m hopeless, I’ve hardly read much this month, but what I am reading is this glorious YA novel - “Things a Bright Girl Can Do” by Sally Nicholls! Set in 1914, we are thrust right into the heart of the campaign for women’s votes with the suffragettes and the suffragists. We follow three young girls in particular: Evelyn, fiercely intelligent, wealthy, and ambitious. However, she is stifled by the fact that she may not be allowed to attend university like her older brother. Soon she becomes involved with the suffragettes, and though that world is overwhelming and scary for her, her desire for freedom and opportunity is her driving force. And then we have May and Nell. May is very involved with the suffragists, campaigning most of her life for equal rights and pay, and comes from a very open and worldly household. When she meets Nell, who was born into hardship, she sees someone who has the same desires as her, a desire to see all kinds of women find their place in the world, and a fierce love and bond forms. This is a beautiful, fun and inspiring book, and though I am only about halfway through, I very much recommend it for everyone! ✨📚
