women's history month reads

Hello everyone! In celebration of Women’s History Month I decided to compile yet another list of reading recommendations. You can see the previous year here. This list is a compilation of novels from Children all the way to Adult books that feature diverse, strong, admirable female protagonists in order to celebrate this month and women’s accomplishments from the past to the present. Here are my top five recommendations of some spectacular reads for this month!

amazing grace

Amazing Grace by Mary Hoffman

Amazing Grace is such a fun children’s series and I remember how much I liked these books from when I was young. The series follows a young girl named Grace who loves stories. She gets a chance to play a part in Peter Pan, and wants to be the lead character. I love Grace’s spirit, strong imagination, and her strong determination to be who she wants to be!

lumberjanes

Lumberjanes Vol. by Noelle Stevenson(Author), Grace Ellis (Author), Brooke Allen(Illustrator), Shannon Watters (Contributor)

Though I’ve highlighted this series on a previous recommendation list, I think this a perfect read for this month. This series follows five best friends spending the summer at Lumberjane scout camp where they encounter the weird and supernatural. It will make you laugh and it features a diverse cast of characters that add their own flavor to the story. These books exude girl power!

Born Confused by Tanuja Desai Hidier

One of my favorite middle/high school reads, Born Confused  is the story of an Indian-American girl growing up in New Jersey. One of the reasons this book stood out to me  was because it was one of first times I got to read a book with South Asian American teen protagonist (which I didn’t see too often at that period). It’s relatable story since it deals with the topic of coming-of-age and it sends a strong message about finding your culture, as well as finding your place in America.

you don't have to like me

You Don’t Have to Like Me by Alida Nugent

This book was a fun and interesting novel where Alida Nugent mixes her personal experiences while discussing women’s issues. Written in a casual narrative it present a laid back, non-overbearing approach to how important it is to have feminism  in today’s society and how much the fight for gender equality is needed.

white collar girl

White Collar Girl by Renee Rosen

White Collar Girl present its readers with the story of an aspiring journalist who wants write real hard-hitting stories and not fluff pieces. She’s spunky, fearless, inquisitive, and will do what it takes to get the inside scoop. This book was such a great historical fiction read and I enjoyed get to see the workings of a 1950s newspaper.

That concludes my reading recommendations for Women’s History Month! What books do you recommend or what are your favorites? Comment below!
