C is for Caitlin
How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran
I love Caitlin Moran. This is the only book of her's I have read, but I have also read many of her pieces for The Times, this Saturday in the Times magazine she wrote a very funny piece on finally giving up smoking, a feat I wish her all the best of luck with. I read How to Be a Woman in late 2015 and really enjoyed it and will hopefully get around to reading all of her books at some point. In this book Caitlin speaks frankly about her entire life, from growing up as a teenager in Wolverhampton to her life as a journalist and her personal life including having children and marriage. It's a really interesting insight, she covers many uncomfortable topics that other people would often shy away from which is very brave considering it comes from personal experience. This book is like a conversation with Caitlin, it will make you laugh, and envy her boldness, wit and all round pretty awesome life.
