LET’S GET HYPED FOR FEMMEUARY!

Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with a new post, this time talking about a month long challenge, or theme, depending on how you tackle the experience. So, first thing’s first: what drew you to this blog post. The title. So… Femmeuary… What is Femmeuary I hear you ask. Well, Femmeuary is basically just a month (February) dedicated to respecting and appreciating women. 

And, I will be doing so through books and possibly film if I have to time. I would like to watch a movie or two directed by a woman, though as I write this I cannot think of a single film so I would for sure appreciate your suggestions!

Like I mentioned before, I would like to make a real effort in February to really read more books by female authors. I have a bunch of other books I might like to get to like Inkheart, Unearthed or The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet. All the books I’ve talked about in this post are written by women and are all pretty high up on my tbr. My reading progress was pretty impressive (in my opinion, anyway) in January so hopefully, February will be equally as fun!

GLOW Poster

 

In Femuary I would also like to give watching Netflix’s tv show, Glow a go! This is a tv show about female pro wrestlers and my best friend has been recommending it to me for ages and now I need to watch it. This show has a majority female cast and I’m so excited for it!

 

A FEMUARY COSY READING NIGHT

In February Lauren from Lauren And The Books will be running her Winter Cosy Reading Night which is a readathon that goes from 7-10pm and is all about being chilled out, comfortable and just reading and having a good time. You can watch Lauren’s video here.

OTHER IDEAS FOR FEMUARY

I also want to be able to support female booktubers and really help to boost their views as much as I can myself. I’ve started doing this recently and I’ve really enjoyed it. I’ve been going through my home section or subscriptions list and picked a booktuber and just added a whole bunch (10 or so) of their videos to my Watch Later tab and did this with a whole lot of booktubers. This was they get more views and I have something to listen to in the background when I’m writing my blog posts.

  1. Love this idea! Someone on booktube is doing something similar on booktube and I can’t wait to start our buddy read. 🙂 I loved GLOW so I hope you enjoy it!

    Patty Jenkins is an awesome female director who just directed Wonder Woman. There’s also Ava DuVernay who is directing the upcoming Wrinkle in Time adaptation and she’s also directed Selma and the documentary 13th. 🙂

    1. Yes, I first heard about it on Lauren and The Books’ booktube channel, she’s amazing, she also did Veganuary which unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to participate in.
      YES, I am so hyped to talk about Batman with you, I picked up my copy yesterday!

      Yes, I’m thinking I’ll probably pick up WW because…duh, so many women. But, Selma sounds really interesting so I might have to look that one up. Thank you for the recommendations!

      1. I’m subbed to ItsJaneLindsey and she does Feminist Lit Feb which focuses on reading feminist books, authors, etc but she did encourage branching out to other pieces of media.

        My work schedule got switched around for this week so I’m off on the 1st so I’m planning to finish Stalking Jack the Ripper and read a little more of Order of the Phoenix.

        We should start it this upcoming week if you want. 🙂 I think I work a few 6 am shifts so I’ll probably nap and then I can read haha 😛

        A girl at my work watched it yesterday and she came in raving about it and I was like Yassss girl!!!! haha:)

        1. Ahh, I should check out her channel, I could always use some more feminist lit recommendations!

          Two of my favourite books! I love them, they’ll make your week so much fun!

          Yes, I’m totally fine with that, whenever you’d like to start!

          Yes, WW is so empowering!

          1. You should!! She has videos of the challenges for it, recommendations and some video/blog ideas.

            Oooh I can’t wait. I’m just hoping I can hold off reading Stalking Jack the Ripper but since I work night shift tonight, I probably will.

            I’m planning on having a huge reading day on Thursday so I’ll have a clean slate by the time we start reading. 🙂

      1. Yeah 🙂 It’s a brilliant film and I love Amma Asante as a director. There’s also Persepolis (Marjane Satrapi), An Education (Lone Scherfig), Fish Tank (Andrea Arnold), Shrek! (Vicky Jenson), The Secret of Kells (Nora Twomey), Little Miss Sunshine (Valarie Faris), Whale Rider (Niki Caro), Ava Duvernay (A Wrinkle in Time, 2018), Dee Rees (Bessie), Patty Jenkins (Wonderwoman), Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin), Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy), Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Secret Life of Bees).

        1. Okay, you’re officially my favourite person right now, thank you so much for all these recommendations!! Have you watched Persepolis? I’ve been putting it off because it will probably make me cry.
          ALSO, Shrek was directed by a woman???? I didn’t think the movie could get any better but hey!
          Thank you so much! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

          1. Haha thanks xD I haven’t seen Persepolis yet, but I did read some of the book. If the movie is anything like the book then it’s told with a lot of witty personality which I felt really helped to counterbalance the issues it deals with if that’s any help ❤

    1. You can still participate!
      I’m the same, the majority of the books I read are written by women (unless they’re high fantasy which annoys tbh) so I doubt it will be that much of a challenge for me, though I do usually read a few books written by men in the month. Do you think I should just read books by women or be more chill about it?
      Ahh, I hope you do – they all sound so good!
