Why I’m Excited For This Book:

I’ve been following Mackenzi Lee on Twitter for quite some time now and while I haven’t gotten the chance to read all of her Bygone Badass Broads threads, what I have read has been fantastic! I love learning about amazing women from history so I’m very excited to learn about 52 more women in this book! Plus, isn’t that cover stunning??

Is Bygone Badass Broads on your TBR? Are you as excited as I am for the book’s release in March? Let me know down in the comments!

    Oooh, this sounds great! Out of curiosity, are you familiar with Rejected Princesses by Jason Porath? He does Instagram threads but his books came out last year and it’s along the same vein… really great if you’re interested in kickass women who are forgotten from/misrepresented in the history books.
