Whenever I buy a new book I just want to show it off to the whole world. Look how pretty my paper package of pain and tears is. So shiny.

wow! this book truly is the holy grail of picture books, and I’m so happy to finally be assured that feminist books are becoming more and more accessible to young children! 

because that’s what this book is - feminist, and unapologetically so. 100 women to inspire the young girls of the world, and 100 women to teach young boys respect towards their peers (and 100 women to make a book blogger very happy) - now that’s something a lot of picture books are simply incapable of doing with their princess, damsel in distress business. 

I have no idea how to even begin telling you how gorgeous every single illustration in this book is, so here are a few of my favourite pages! 

rita levi montalcini - scientist (this was my favourite story!) 

grace o’malley - pirate 

astrid lindgren - author (and a very good one at that, might I add!)

frida kahlo - painter 

ruth bader ginsburg - supreme court justice 

Can you believe that it’s April already? March flew by so fast. My goal for the month of April is to read some Jane Austen. Hopefully, I can finish some or at least start. Wish me luck. ig-c.booksandberries

The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman

This was a great way to start the year. Reading a book about books and the secret Librarian spies who retrieve them from different alternate realities. Everything from the world building to the gender roles was thought through and how to execute it. If you read A Thousand Pieces of You, you’ll like this.

Book Reviews : Dune by Frank Herbert

I finally finished this after two years. I loved the complexity of the world and the subtle but obvious politics in the plot. This was definitely one heck of a book.
