Moranifesto
Moranifesto | Caitlin Moran
Ive lived through ten iOS upgrades on my Mac and thats just something I use to muck about on Twitter. Surely capitalism is due an upgrade or two? When Caitlin Moran sat down to choose her favourite pieces for her new book she realised that they all seemed to join up. Turns out, its the same old problems and the same old ass-hats. Then she thought of the word Moranifesto, and she knew what she had to do... This is Caitlins engaging and amusing rallying call for our times. Combining the best of her recent columns with lots of new writing unique to this book, Caitlin deals with topics as pressing and diverse as 1980s swearing, benefits, boarding schools, and why the internet is like a drunken toddler. And whilst never afraid to address the big issues of the day such as Benedict Cumberbatch and duffel coats Caitlin also makes a passionate effort to understand our 21st century society and presents us with her Moranifesto for making the world a better place. The polite revolution starts here! Please.

I want Caitlin Moran for my big sister and best friend. She's smart and funny and gives 'Real Talk' like no other. I'm so glad she's British. This book (and her thoughts and opinions in general) are so well considered and put in such an amazing way. She is such a good writer, I would read anything she writes.

I really expected to dislike this book after everything I‘ve heard and read about her political views and brand of feminism, but 29% in, its pretty damn entertaining, which is what I need now. #runonsentence #happyplace #ilovelitsy #litsyloveslibraries #hashtagcrazy 😜😊😊😊😊

Coleen_Nieto This was my cousins pick for our annual book swap! I'll have to move it up on the TBR list :) 2y
Megabooks @Coleen_Nieto Yes! I‘m really enjoying it. 2y
readordierachel Her feminism can be problematic, but she is an excellent writer. 2y

Megabooks @ReadOrDieRachel Agreed on both counts 2y
Mrs_Organized_Chaos I tried to read How To Be A Woman and just couldn‘t get very far into it. I decided to put it aside and try the audiobook hoping that I will enjoy it more that way. I have this on my TBR list but after trying her last book, I decided to hold off. 2y
Megabooks @Mrs_Organized_Chaos I haven‘t read HTBaW and probably won‘t because it‘s only an ePub at my library. I have read a lot more negative things about that one than Moranifesto. 2y

And I did it! I listened to an entire audiobook, four complete books, a short story and half of another book. I will now celebrate by finishing the book in half way through. #24in48

I ❤️ Caitlin Moran. Full stop.

These essays are funny and clever. When Moran dips into politics, her ideas are bright, refreshing and thought provoking, if often pie-in-the-sky dreamy. I've been walking around with Caitlin in my head (thanks to jean pockets and headphones) for several days straight, and could listen to her for several more.

I was out in Peckham, London, on Saturday night and as I was waiting for my train I saw this advert for what looks like a new Caitlin Moran book! ? it reads, "Life divided into amazing enjoyable times and appalling experiences that will make future amusing anecdotes". I adore Caitlin Moran so much so of course I'm adding this to be TBR straight away! ? Has anyone else read it already? ?

KarenUK Have it on audio...not listened yet, but going to use it as my #LitsyReadingChallenge same age author... born in 1974 like me 😊👍 (really liked How to be a Woman) 3y
TheAliceEvers @KarenUK very nice! Ooh I might get it on audio too! How to be a Woman is one of my favourite books! And I just finished How to Build a Girl which is also awesome! Can't wait for this one! 😂 I look forward to hearing what you think of it! ❤ 3y

Guys, this was such a fun listen. It was like a friend at a bar talking to you about all sorts of life things. This is a collection of her writing pieces for a newspaper that as an American, I don't have easy access to, so it was lovely listening to her weird, but relatable insight into things like not wanting to go out to bars when you get older, trying to be cool as a teenage girl, and so much more.

#TBRTuesday

OK going with a less structured TBR post this week. I think it's a given that my overall TBR pile is a mountain. Here's the smaller on deck circle from which I'm planning to pick my reading this week. We'll see if I'm able to stick to it 😆

Many months ago, I placed a hold on this at the library even though I fully intended to buy it (I like to boost circulation no's). Ordered it from Book Depository earlier this month. And of course it arrived the same day as my library hold! 😆
In other news Book Depo has gone back to bubble envelopes, leading to some slight mangling as the letter carrier attempts to stuff them through our mail slot. 😐

Better than Moranthology, not quite as good as How to be a Woman. Liked the idea of everyone writing, and sharing, their own political manifesto. Must get on that. Forgot the audiobook narrator wasn't Caitlin, she got her tone well.
