Waiting on Wednesday (76)


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I am super excited for Bygone Badass Broads: 52 Forgotten Women Who Changed The World by Mackenzi Lee! I am huge fan of non-fiction books that highlight awesome women in history. I've recently gotten copies of Bad Girls Throughout History and Historical Heartthrobs. I've followed Mackenzi Lee's Bygone Badass Broads twitter threads for a few months now, and if those are any indication, this book will be amazing! I loved her historical fiction The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, and her first non-fiction is bound to be a success!

Synopsis:

Based on Mackenzi Lee’s popular weekly Twitter series of the same name, Bygone Badass Broads features 52 remarkable and forgotten trailblazing women from all over the world. With tales of heroism and cunning, in-depth bios and witty storytelling, Bygone Badass Broads gives new life to these historic female pioneers. Starting in the fifth century BC and continuing to the present, the book takes a closer look at bold and inspiring women who dared to step outside the traditional gender roles of their time. Coupled with riveting illustrations and Lee’s humorous and conversational storytelling style, this book is an outright celebration of the badass women who paved the way for the rest of us.

Release: March 6, 2018
