Series 4 Episode 3: Queeni‪e‬ Chick Lit 4 Life

    • Books

And we're back!



This week the girls get stuck into Candice Carty-Williams' timely and hugely important "Queenie"

What did they come across? Well...among others:



- How important it is to have heroines (because yes Queenie is a female hero) that are not trying to make you, the reader, like them. Which made us love Queenie even more tbh

- That maybe the romantic love story isn't the thing we're interested in

- How relatable and heartbreaking Queenie's self-destructive actions are, BUT

- How we can't wrap our heads around the toll systematic racism must have on someone's mental health. Seriously, it's terrifying.



But you want to know about the tangents right? Well, as usual, this week did not disappoint:

- Jungkookie-Oppa had a livestream this week. And his hair was tied up. Chloe had many thoughts

-You all might have seen on Instagram that LC's baby sister has started writing fanfic. So we talk about that for a bit...

-And y'know, that Katie's trapped on campus during this latest lockdown. So there's the whole zombie apocalypse vibe she's rockin right now...



Queenie is available on Kindle and at all good booksellers (shop independent if you can!)
