How To Build A Girl Readalong

I'M DOING ANOTHER READALONG because that's all I blog about these days (aaaaaaand about taking my 7-week-old baby camping, but that's a different blog entirely). Unlike every other readalong I've done ever, this is for a book coming out on 2014, not, like, 1814. Way to be current, me.

Nailing it.

Caitlin Moran's How to Build a Girl comes out in September (pre-order it, cause you'll forget), and I've read How to Be a Woman and Moranthology and I'm STILL LAUGHING. Also, I have cheated on this readalong and started the book weeks ago because I am a toddler about waiting for stuff.

Or I'm like nine but also filthy rich. They amount to the same thing.

That gif and the assurance that at least the first third of the book is clever and heartbreaking may be all I end up contributing to this readalong (hosted by the brilliant Emily over at As the Crowe) because I've lost the cable for charging my nook and the battery is dead. I AM DISTRAUGHT. But I ordered a new cable today, and it should get here in the next two weeks, which means I should find my original charger in about nine days.

Until then, check out the other participants in the readalong (the usual suspects, mostly) and I'll just be over here.

Doing this.

It's almost more of a GIF competition than it is a book discussion, isn't it?

*off to read about your camping trip now because i am obsessed with your children but not at all in a creepy way*

"But I ordered a new cable today, and it should get here in the next two weeks, which means I should find my original charger in about nine days."

Truer words have never been spoken.

YAAS to the reappearance of the EVERYDAY I'M DUMBLIN gif - pure nostalgic magic. :')

Hmm yes to everything said above, about the gifs and loving your kids but not in a creepy/stalker way. And hooray that what you've already read is excellent. As if it'd be anything other.

I just realized that I haven't read your Lime blog in several months. MONTHS! Tomorrow afternoon at work just got muuuuuch better.

Kayleigh vW said...

Ahaha to Rayna because I was going to comment that EXACT SAME THING, "YAAS" included. Ah, hive mind. And also yes to what Emily said because your kids are irresponsibly adorable.

Eeee, I'm glad you're liking it so far! So excited.

I ALSO STARTED THIS and I don't even know how I stopped. Something something common decency something something sharing is fun and beautiful?

Ditto everything everyone has said so far. Between us, I think we've got this commenting thing covered.

Kayleigh Murphy said...

I have nothing to add because everyone has said all the things but to recap:

*Yay readalong!

*BABY *attempts to squeeze baby cheeks through computer screen and fails*

*Every time I order something it magically appears in an incredibly obvious spot which I definitely searched. I blame elves.

I started this morning. I was really pissed that I had to stop and get ready for work. YAY GIFS AND READALONGS.

Amara Brandybuck said...

Completely irrelevant, but I've been stalking your blog for the past oh, three or so days, and I LOVE YOU.

That's it. xD

What Siva Cool said. Because "this book IS a really good book which shows us right path": the path of wanking frequently and with abandon. "The writer has described in Plain English with lot of examples." YEAH she has.

I love Caitlin Moran so much. Can't wait to read this book.
