Last month one of the books I read was the the first book of the ‘Am I Normal Yet?‘ trilogy written by Holly Bourne. I really enjoyed reading it, I fell in love with the three main characters Evie, Amber and Lottie. Since I enjoyed the first book so much I really wanted to read the next two books in the trilogy. They are ‘How Hard Can Love Be?’ and ‘What’s A Girl Gotta Do?’.
- ‘How Hard Can Love Be?- Holly Bourne
The second book in the trilogy is ‘How Hard Can Love Be?’. This book follows Amber as she travels to America to meet up with her estranged mother and work in the holiday camp her mother and her partner run. Amber’s mum moved to California with her new boyfriend and left Amber behind in England. Amber plans to spend the summer with her in California and hopes that they can reconnect again. While working at the summer camp, Amber meets prom king Kyle and she can’t help but start to fall for him but she knows that this is a situation destined to fail.
Reading this book made me miss traveling in America, with Amber going on a road trip all I wanted to do after I finished reading was to go back and do it all over again.
2. ‘What’s A Girl Gotta Do? – Holly Bourne
The third book in the trilogy is ‘What’s A Girl Gotta Do?’. This book follows the last of the three friends Lottie and her journey in in starting a feminist revolution. Lottie is growing tired of all the sexism she experiences in her everyday life and with the help of her friends and the Spinster Club she plans to start a feminist revolution called the #Vagilante. She films and uploads her campaign against sexism and she starts to gain quite an online following! But what reaction will she get from the public and from other college students and her teachers?
I really enjoyed reading this book and it highlighted a lot of sexism that is occurring everyday that you might not even notice. Since reading this book I have noticed the small things. It has inspired me to pay more attention to sexism and try to point it out to family and friends.
If you have read this book trilogy let me know what you thought of them in the comments or on twitter because I have loved reading them!
