January 2019 Book Haul

Oh wow we are in 2019, didn't that come round quick! My haul this month is actually pretty small, this is largely due to the fact that I have really been trying to cut down on my book buying this year, but also due to the fact that I was away in Taiwan for the last two weeks of the month so didn't really have a chance to buy any book.... Here is what I picked up in January:

book haul

  • Bygone Badass Broads, 52 Forgotten Women Who Changed the World - It's no secret I am a fan of these types of feminist books so when I received this as a Christmas gift from my best friend I was super excited. This is a gorgeous book of illustrations and descriptions of women in history who have had a vital role in pioneering the way forward for other women but are lesser known today. It's fantastic and definitely one I am picking up for my younger cousins to read too.
  • Proud - This is a book that I am so fricking excited about and I seriously hope everyone picks up. It's a collection of short stories, poems and illustrations that have an LBTQ+ theme and are all by LGBTQ+ authors. Proud was compiled by Juno Dawson who is a fantastic author and this is such a wonderful celebration of the LGBTQ+ community.
  • The Outrun by Amy Liptrot - I received this book in the January Reading in Heels subscription box. The Outrun is actually is a memoir as Amy is trying to overcome addiction after she moves back to Orkney after living a heady lifestyle in London. This has stellar reviews and looks like it will be quite an emotional read.
  • Dumplin' & Puddin' by Julie Murphy - Like many people who use twitter, I watched Dumplin on Netflix and absolutely fell in love. It's just such a charming feel good film so of course I had to pick up the book straight away, and getting the sequel was pretty much a no brainer.
That is it for this month. Have you watched Dumplin' yet? Did you enjoy it as much as I did? It seems like Netflix is really killing it with the book to film adaptations at the moment.

  3. I had no idea that Dumplin' was based on a book, I loved that on Netflix so sounds like a great read along with Puddin'

  14. Nice little book haul! I've recently put the Bygone Badass Boards on my TBR list... I've had Dumblin' on my list for over a year now, but I don't think I'd ever read it though.
