I am currently halfway reading through How Hard Can Love Be? by Holly Bourne. It is Book # 2 of the Normal series. This continuing story of the Spinster Club girls focuses on tall and ginger, Amber.

"How is this good for feminism? How is this about 'liberation'? It's backfired. Men are doing really really well out of this raunch culture. Instead of girls burning their bras and fighting to be paid equally, we're all worried we're not sexy enough and are competing with all the women we should be fighting alongside - not against - over who has the nicest tits."

"I was so alone.
I was in a strange stupid country, in a strange stupid camp, with no real friends, and why? Why was I doing this? To see my mother who didn't want to see me? To force her love to me? Force her to care when it should be something that comes naturally?"

Just as in the first book, Am I Normal Yet?, the feminism discussion is also strong in this book. Amber is also dealing with a complicated relationship with her mother whom she meets again after two years of being away from her.

That's it. I shall now continue reading this wonderful book. Share with me in the comments some quotes from your current read. Or link me with your Teaser Tuesday post.

  1. I'm not familiar with this series. It sounds really interesting but maybe a bit sad? My teaser is from Mary Called Magdalene by Margaret George: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-19e

    1. I might just have picked some intense and lonely quotes but the book has actually a fair share of funny moments.
