Last Bossy Boots Bookclub of the Year

   So these were the two books that I picked for November, Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson and Dangerous Books for Girls: The Bad Reputation of Romance Novels Explained by Maya Rodale. 



   So first up Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson. This book is amazing, I loved it. It really made her childhood come to life. The poetry in this book is really well done. I also noticed that I wanted to savor the words and slow down my experience of it. I can't recommend this enough. 

   

   The second book is Dangerous Books for Girls: The Bad Reputation of Romance Novels Explained by Maya Rodale. I love both covers of these books. This was really good to read, I didn't agree with all that she said, but it does cover some interesting ground. I didn't realise that the covers of historicals have really changed to lone females and heroes. There are so many that I love the look of (in fact all of Tessa Dare's covers are amazing). 
   This is a book that is really interesting to me, I did disagree with some stuff in it. As a woman who has been reading these books for nearly two decades it was insightful to a genre I love. Anyone else into romance, this is a book that I think you would be interested in.

   This is the last of Bossy Boots Bookclub this year, and I am promising that next year I won't be so disorganised! Happy reading!
