This month is a mix of long awaited reads (we’re looking at you Scar Curtis) and short stories that commemorate women in the war as we mark the centenary of WW1. Oh, and it wouldn’t be #LWLbookclub without discussing our latest Netflix addiction: Sabrina like you’ve never seen her before.
War Girls brings together nine writers to present a collection of WW1 stories seen through the eyes of young women. From a courageous nurse on the front line to a girl finding her independence in wartime London, the book explores how the war shaped the lives of women in Britain forever.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Hands up who else loved Sabrina as a kid? When Netflix announced it was remaking the 90s favourite, everyone was expecting talking cats and chokers. But the new series couldn’t be further from love potions and prom politics. There’s not a rhinestone in sight in this dark reinvention of our favourite teenage witch.
Feminists Don’t Wear Pink and Other Lies
This highly anticipated debut from journalist and downright feminist superstar Scar Curtis is something we’ve been desperate to read since she shared a sneak peek on Instagram back in May. The collection of essays are written by some of today’s most influential feminist commentators on what the movement means to them. Expect some impressive names, with everyone from Emma Watson to Dolly Alderton dropping by to share their thoughts.
Keep your eyes on the ‘gram to get involved in our latest #LWLbookclub discussions. Whether you’ve read it or not, your voice is always welcome!
