Throwback Thursday - 12 Novels Written By Women That Are Worth The Read!!

March is Women's History Month. So for this post I've decided to do a slight twist and focus on novels (vs women's history specifically) written by women that are very much worth the read in my humble opinion.

Below are twelve novels written by women that I've read and reviewed here on my blog. Each of the novels are extremely well written. I enjoyed reading each of them and would enjoy reading them again as they're all thought provoking in one way or another.

Additionally, all of these novels would make great book club reads as I think each novel would generate loads of discussion among book club readers.

Click on the links below to read my review of each of the following novels listed should you care to read/learn more about each novel and why I liked reading it.

1. All Is Not Forgotten by Wendy Walker

2. Juliet Takes A Breath by Gabby Rivera

3. The Giver by Lois Lowry

4. Asking For It by Louise O'Neill

5. The Vegetarian by Han Kang

6. An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

7. The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier

8. The Second Mrs. Hockaday by Susan Rivers

9. An Untamed State by Roxane Gay

10. Saving Ruby King by Catherine Adel King

11. The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel

12. The Familiar Dark by Amy Engel

  1. I've read and very much enjoyed two from your list - the Kang and the Jones books.

  2. I've read other books by Lois Lowry. And I read The Vegetarian and The Last Runaway. Loved the latter, didn't care much for the former. But you put together a great list. Thanks.

    1. Glad you enjoyed the list!! I find it posting these throwback Thursday lists.

    2. That's a great way to remember wonderful reads.
