We caught up with blogger, podcaster and author of 'No Big Deal' - the multi-talented, Bethany Rutter for an inspiring interview. In our interview with Bethany Rutter, she shares her reasons behind starting her blog and tells us more about her latest book. We also have a signed copy of No Big Deal to give away to one lucky Joanie gal, plus you can win your favourite piece from the new Joanie collection!
As much as I appreciate the warmer months, Autumn and Winter is my favourite time of year; I love the cosiness and warmth of big jumpers and gingerbread lattes. But the best part of these colder months has to be wrapping myself up in a fluffy blanket on the sofa with a good book! So here’s a list of some of the books I recommend for the Autumn and Winter seasons.
In the latest edition of our #joaniegalboss series, we interview the superb Scarlett Curtis, author of new book 'Feminists Don't Wear Pink (and other lies). Scarlett is a women's rights activist, self-proclaimed Mamma Mia 2 thinker-upper, Sunday Times Style contributing editor and all round great gal!
His Dark Materials is an epic trilogy of fantasy novels consisting of Northern Lights (1995), The Subtle Knife (1997), and The Amber Spyglass (2000). It's full of adventure, wonder and a little hint of nostalgia. We welcome this trilogy to the book club with open arms!
Welcome Cat Haines, otherwise known as @ladylawstudent to Joanie's Open Book Club! We're discussing Cat's recommendation The Book of Lost Things this week: it's a wonderful dark fairy tale - definitely a fairy tale for adults!
Sour Heart is a debut collection of short stories, published by the talented Jenny Zhang. Joanie HQ were delighted to be invited to An Evening with Jenny Zhang at Waterstones in celebration of this collection. At the event we were able to drag Jenny away from her busy schedule and ask her a few little questions. Read on to find out more about the collection and Jenny herself.
The Brontë sisters are firm members of our book club. For a host of reasons, but mainly because they produced such forward-thinking statements about a woman's role in society and indispensable life advice about love, marriage and friendship, from such an isolated and recluse space! In celebration, we're giving away a selection of Brontë books!
For the first (ever) edition of Joanie's Open Book-Club. We take a look at what Joanie HQ has been reading this summer. First up, The Girl's (Emma Cline).
