Happy Women’s Day!!
I have grown to love women’s fiction since last year because books in this genre feels so relatable and realistic. Through these stories we know someone out there must have gone through the same situation and their strength and courage inspires and motivates us to get out of any life situation we feel we never come out of, be it family issue, relationship and married life crisis or love, betrayal, dream, passion… you name it. This genre makes me feel more uplifting than any other genres.
So, on this International Women’s Day, I would like to recommend 5 women’s fiction books you can enjoy that can inspire and motivate all wonderful women out there. I’m sure there are lot many books in this genre but these are from the book I have read.
Here is the list of my personal favorites, in no particular order.
How to Walk Away by Katherine Center — (Review) ★★★★★
This was my most favorite novel I read in 2018. It deals with recovery from accident that caused main character Margaret everything, a job, fiance and her dream. It was about the courage, hope, and love. About how to move on in life after losing everything, walk through darkness towards light and joy, how to walk away of grief, grudge and things that are holding you back from being happy. It was utterly motivating, uplifting, and inspiring book that you should read at least once in life.
The Things We Need to Say by Rachel Burton — (Review) ★★★★★
This book was about main characters’ struggle in married life, coping with recurrent miscarriages, how communication gap and lack of expressing feelings to each other created biggest crack in their life and how they need to say things to each other to save their marriage. It was about about hope, faith, being yourself in relationship, and finding happiness within yourself. It was heart-touching, inspiring and emotional story of Fran and Will.
Husbands and Other Sharp Objects by Marilyn Simon Rothstein — (Review) ★★★★★
I reviewed this book on women’s day last year and I’m mentioning it this year as well. This Marcy story who grows in a real sense almost at the end of her middle age by getting control of your own life, being independent after almost 30 years of marriage, and coming out of ex-husband’s shadow. It’s about her life, family, love, and friendship. It was refreshing, hilarious, entertaining, dramatic, fast paced, clean romance, and relatable relationships with quirky and witty characters.
The Holiday Cruise by Victoria Cooke — (Review) ★★★★★
It was lovely story about Hanna who found her youth and true meaning of life after finding about her husband’s betrayal. The book was about self-discovery, living life free and fully, getting over the betrayal and finding love at least expected time and place. It was light-hearted, entertaining, sweet romantic holiday read.
Finding Joy by Morven-May MacCallum — (Review) ★★★★★
Finding Joy was fictional memoir about Joyce suffering from Lyme disease written by author who fought this illness herself for almost 10 years and wrote with purpose of raising awareness. This book was raw, direct, honest and poignant account of the disease from perspective of patient, her relative, and friend. It was truly inspiring, showing strength and courage of character that can motivate all readers.
This is my most preferable genre after mythic fantasies these days and I wish to read more books, so feel free to recommend your favorites as well.
