Tonight, we’re getting book drunk. No seriously… Tequila Mockingbird, Bridget Jones Daiquiri and Lord of the Mai-Tai’s are all on the menu this evening, and we’re super excited! Fellow bookworms join us in getting LIT for National Book Lover’s Day by opting for the books instead of the booze. Take us up on the offer of 2 for 1 reads (now this is a happy hour we’re rooting for!) by delving into as many titles as possible on this fine Friday eve. To help a gal out, we’ve put together a list of our favourite treasures. Happy reading!

She must be mad – Charly Cox

A book written for ‘every girl that feels too much’, meet our Skinnydip Book Club Approved choice in She must be mad by the fabulous Charly Cox! An exploration of coming-of-age, ‘She Must be Mad’ captures the experiences of turning from a girl into a woman and the pain and beauty of love. Charly has packed this one with witty poetry and prose as she revists her own experiences with love, life, mental illness (and more!). She breaks down into poems that are honest, refreshing and totally relatable! You’ll definitely get book drunk on this one.

Everything I know about love – Dolly Alderton

Addressing all the millennial twists, trials and tribulations of growing up and navigating your way through love. Dolly Alderton’s book is packed full of fun, wit and honesty, it’s a book about bad dates, good friends and – above all else – about recognising that you and you alone are enough. As a Sunday Times bestseller, we can’t recommend this one more!

Free to be me – Dom&Ink

Skinnydip Book Club Approved, the ‘Free to Be Me’ journal is inviting, insightful and easy to digest. It is packed full of LGBTQ+ activities, advice and attitude to celebrate being yourself and all the things that make you amazing! You’ll be sure to find your inner rainbow with this gem, as happiness, confidence and pride are feelings that will not go unmissed once you finally put it down.

The Sisterhood – Daisy Buchanan

A love letter to the women who’ve shaped her, Daisy Buchanan’s ‘The Sisterhood’ is an incredibly honest, hilarious and delightful read that celebrates women and explores what it’s like to live as a woman in the 21st century! We couldn’t put this book down, which is why it was announced as our first ever Skinnydip Book Club approved novel. We’re sure you won’t want to either!
