    Do you have to pay to borrow things at the library in England? At 0:55 you

    I will have to check it out! Great review!

    I was confused about when you filmed this because it’s in the place you
    lived with Rosianna and Marion and your hair looks longer than usual, then
    I checked the description and yep, makes sense. 🙂 YouTube’s cool like
    that. Someone might post a video at one time but could have filmed it at
    any point beforehand.

    Sounds like an interesting book. I might have to look into it when I’ve
    made my way through a little more of my to read shelves. (Yes. Shelves. And
    I have a list of books I’m looking to buy to add. So many books. So many
    beautiful, thrilling, mysterious adventures!)

    In the description you mention this is the first Caitlin Moran book you’ve
    read. Which others by her have you read and would you recommend any of them
    to someone fresh out of high school? Her website does say this book is her
    “first adult novel”, so it probably isn’t written with a teenage audience
    in mind. Also, looking at the covers of her three books, I think it’s
    interesting how they have progressed from a photo of her, then a photo of
    her with Dr Martens (or shoes that look like Dr Martens at least) and then
    Dr Martens appear in the cover of How to Build a Girl. I have no idea
    whether this was intentional, just something I noticed.

    I hope you have a lovely day!

    Pronunciation Nazi says: goes like ‘Kate-lynn’. Good review.

    I won a copy of this last year, and although I enjoyed it, it’s not my
    usual cup of tea. I think I prefer Moran’s essays to her fiction.

    Nice review! I love Caitlin Moran and read all of her books. You should
    also read How to be a woman and Moranthology. The only problem I had with
    How to build a girl was that I already knew her story (lots of brothers
    and, benefits, becomes a columnist etc) from her previous books although
    this one is a novel and the other ones are nonfiction.

    Sounds really interesting! But I hate the cover. Eh.

    Sounds really interesting!

    Great review! I read this when it first came out and loved it. I have read
    her other books before though, I really recommend you to read How to be
    woman! I think this book is so great due to it’s “easyness” towards
    subjects like sex, but still manages to reflect and the character evolves
    do to her experiences. Ah, I just loved this.

  10. Ruby Sterland22 January, 2015 at 8:54 am

    I have this on my book shelf and I still haven’t gotten round to reading
    it! It’s definitely going to be the next one I read though, you’ve sparked
    my interest again with this review. x

  11. Margaret Belle22 January, 2015 at 7:45 am

    This sounds very intriguing, I’ll definitely have to pick it up at some
    point! Great review 🙂 xx

    I read 3/4 of this book and just couldn’t finish it. I really tried, but
    just not my cup of tea at all.

    Great review! I read this book when I was in London last year, and didn’t
    really know anything about it or about Caitlin Moran. I finished it in no
    time, and loved every page of it. When I got back to Australia I made one
    of my best friends read it just so I had someone to discuss it with.

    i miss the long hair.

    i know you did a vid on naked covers. you should do one on your favorite
    regular covers

    I almost bought this book the other day. I think I need to now…

  16. Kayla Rayne22 January, 2015 at 3:56 am

    This sounds like it’s out of my comfort zone in reading, but I will check
    it out! I need to branch out anyway.

    This book was featured in the local newspaper and have been meaning to read
    it for a while. It seems different from anything I’ve read. Great thoughts
    on the book. I’m probably going to get lost with all the references as
    well, but I’ll just go with the flow lol

    This review has really made me want to read the book!!!!! Kinda random but
    where are the fairy lights from in the background because I sorta love

  19. Melissa Gandarinho22 January, 2015 at 2:24 am

    I don’t want to buy new books until I read all the old ones I have, but I
    might have to pick this one up eventually. 

  20. Erin Elizabeth22 January, 2015 at 2:14 am

    Really interesting review. I hadn’t heard of this, and might pick it up now
    that you’ve mentioned it!

    Also, it’s kind of trippy seeing you without your signature red lip.

    I havent read this particular book but I read How to Be a Woman and her
    childhood is pretty much what you just shared. So maybe a lot of parts are

    I dont like her style that much, I´ll give her another chance and read this

    When I first I heard about this book, I thought it sounded interesting and
    I put it on my TBR. I still want to read it. I feel like I don’t read
    enough humorous books and now I’m pretty curious about that chapter you

  23. Cerys Vyner22 January, 2015 at 1:36 am

    LOVED this book and I read it as soon as it came out because the cover
    appealed to me.. DM’s were my trademark too! Need to read some more Caitlin
    Moran books:)

  24. Jenny PAce22 January, 2015 at 1:32 am

    YEEESS! I’ve been waiting for this. I want to read it so bad! I think she’s
    a hilarious and cool lady, even if I don’t agree with everything she says,
    I respect her a lot.

  25. Jackie Shiu22 January, 2015 at 1:31 am

    Im reading this book right now and as I was watching your video I looked to
    see what chapter I was on and I saw that it was chapter 20…Big cock al
