Hannah’s book is our Book Club book of the month for April. Thank you to Wren and Rook for our ARC copies!
Hanna Witton’s new book is no average “youtuber book”. It’s a very honest, no holds barred look at the phenomenon of sex. It takes your had and walks you through some of the basics, and some of the more more complex aspects of super happy fun times. (wink wink) It has a great mix of knowledge and fun and it’s clear that Hannah and her team had gone to a lot of work to get the book (almost) how they wanted it. Hannah herself did admit there are gaps in the book, hindsight is a wonderful thing, right? She outlines the gaps in this video here but I don’t think the gaps really effected the book that much.
A great thing about the book is that you can just skip over what isn’t relevant to you, or pick the book up sporadically or read it cover to cover and it’s still a great reading experience! The book is targeted at 14+ and I think it fulfils
that really well, some bits feel a bit young…but of course kids under 14 will undoubtedly pick it up so that was a super clever choice. As a 22 year old cis girl in a long-term relationship, I was worried that I wasn’t the right audience for the book. I learnt SO much. Sometimes it’s good to be reminded of the basics. I particularly got a lot from the How To Be A Good Ally chapter, so much good stuff to learn there. One thing I really loved about the book is tha
t Hannah never claimed to be an expert. It made the book so much more honest and authentic when she passed on to other people to talk about issues/aspects that she just couldn’t talk about, I really appreciated that. The book was super informative and was funny where it needed to be funny and serious when it should have been.
Since reading the book I’ve started watching Hannah’s videos and see is such a wonderful human. This isn’t a youtuber book, it’s a really informative, honest, real look at things we could do with learning/being reminded of once in a while!
A great book by a great woman!
Thank you lovelies and happy reading! ox
