book of october: how to be a woman

I love this holiday. Candy and costumes galore. What more could you possibly want out of a holiday.

Seeing as it’s Halloween, and that the last of the month is when I post my book of the month, this month I read a scary scary scary story in honor of the holiday!

Alright, you caught me. That was a huge lie. I do not think that far in advance. Sometimes I try to think in advance, but it never seems to happen how I plan things. So I’ve stopped with that.

This month’s book of the month is How To Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran. It is absolutely hilarious. Not scary at all. Except for when she starts shouting at you about feminism. On second thought that wasn’t too scary. She was shouting though. . .

If you have the opportunity to listen to the audio book I highly recommend it. She has an English accent, which makes the book approximately ten times funnier. You get to hear her say delightful things in her English accent such as:

  • Fuckadoodle
  • You just haven’t taken enough MDMA in a field at 3am love


If you read this book you will also get to learn fun and interesting things like:

The minimum you should ask of your footwear:

  1. That you can dance in it.
  2. It doesn’t get you murdered


Things you actually need in your handbag:

  1. Something to absorb HUGE quantities of liquid.
  2. Eyeliner
  3. Safety pin
  4. Biscuit


How to take care of a baby:

  1. Put it in a cardboard box and eat tinned hot dogs.


That’s all you get, because you should seriously go read this book for a good laugh. And if you want a really good laugh you should listen to Moran read it to you.
