This book was always going to be my cuppa tea. Feminism and
calling out the patriarchy? Count me in.
I liked Moxie. It was fun and raised a lot of important
points when it comes to female empowerment and misogyny. The concept was cool
and I would’ve loved a female revolution or club when I was at school.
The characters in Moxie were okay but they’re never going to
be my favourite characters ever. They were a little two-dimensional at times.
However, I will say that I loved the female friendships that blossomed
throughout the story. The love interest, Seth, was alright but I thought that he often got praised and celebrated for doing the bare minimum. He doesn’t
objectify women and he believes they should be equal? Congrats. So should everyone.
I thought the plot was fun but often predictable and the
‘twists’ and ‘turns’ weren’t exactly mind-blowing. But, overall, it was a fun
read and if I had read it in my early teens, I know I would have loved and
appreciated it back then a lot more.
I’m also super excited to see the movie adaptation on
Netflix. I’ve heard really great things and I hope that the adaptation brings a
bit more maturity and depth to the story.
