POWERHOUSE NOVELS WRITTEN BY WOMEN

I'm trying to read a book a week. Impossible? Maybe. I'm going to try it though.
  1. Where'd You Go, Bernadette?
    By Maria Semple. This book is beautifully written, and really captures suburban boredom and the odd twists in life. Sometimes you find inspiration in the coldest places.
  2. The Dovekeepers
    By Alice Hoffman. One of the most breathtaking novels I have ever had the privilege of reading. It is a masterpiece. Four women, in the midst of war and persecution find a temporary safe haven from the world but not from their personal dilemmas. The relationships are complex and perfect, each one filling something where the other lacks.
  3. The Joy Luck Club
    By Amy Tan. One of the first novels I have ever read by Tan. Another woman author discussing the tender, delicate relationships that women have with each other. The shadows of a mother's past find their way into the lives of her daughter. Moving, beautiful, and a delight.
  4. Pride and Prejudice
    By Jane Austen. Obviously.
  5. To Kill a Mockingbird
    By Harper Lee. Addresses pretty much every social issue you could want. A cold hard classic that shaped my love of literature. Deep, adorable characters that move and groove you, and let's not forget Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch 💯
  6. Gone Girl
    By Gillian Flynn. I have only started this book and I'm pretty into it.
