I said I wanted to review books on here that are edgy, smart and funny. British columnist Caitlin Moran’s 2011 book, How to be a Woman is exactly that.
Moran is from the UK so there are a lot of fun and new slang words in this book. I learned an array of new words that I can now use at work-related functions! Here are just a few.
Maw (one of the last two refers to armpits. I’m not sure which one?)
(and my personal fav) Rolf Harris
Marvel at the creative slang in this excerpt:
“This is money we should be spending on the electricity bill and cheese and berets. Instead, we’re wasting it on making our Chihuahuas look like a skanky chicken breast.”
Besides the fun new nicknames, this book is chalk-full of great ideas. Pornography, shaving, high heels, birthing, weddings. All of these stereotypical “girly” topics are dissected, ground up and spit out by Moran, with lots of laughs.
So to sum up, read this book. Your minge will thank you.
