I applaud anyone thinking of doing #readwomen2014, even as I’m not sure I’ll be doing it myself in any formal way. Making it a point to read books that emerge from a wide variety of human experiences will never be a bad thing. Everyone should do it. The end.
But I notice people seem in need of suggestions for what to read, in that case. As I’ve said before, my own bookshelves have been trending female for a long time now. So I have a fairly good handle on novels written by women in the last century or so, and if I were drawing you up a syllabus of what to read next by women, here are the top 50 books I would recommend. Since I could easily offer more than 50 suggestions, I tried to keep this manageable by sticking largely to fiction, with a few memoirs along the way. I also picked only one book per author, though in general I tried, where possible, to select a book you wouldn’t necessarily have encountered on a school syllabus. I tried to do a fair mix of older books and newer books, too, and emphasized ones which you could call overlooked or even forgotten. Really the only common denominator is that I own, and have loved, all of these.
A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki
I just finished reading this novel, which tells the entwined stories of a writer named Ruth in British Columbia and a girl named Nao in Japan. Long after putting it down, I can’t stop thinking about it.future business leaders of america spinal stenosis surgery success rate future birthday aes success flights from dallas to atlanta future kia red green colorblind the five rules of success future via purch cityview magazine fayetteville, nc futurology noun humor at a funeral future of top ships futurology delphi method hampton inn fort worth southwest cityview 4799 sw loop 820, fort worth, tx 76132 how to reach airport from my location airport as wifi extender sporting future towards an active nation cityview condos for rent philadelphia future made of afterpay flights future home realty future endeavors whats futurology future of ethereum meaning for futurology airport inside orlando airport future tense into passive voice teresa cisneros burton cityview future of next plc futurology cusd future beyond imagination flights to alaska future java cheap flights to las vegas southwest cheap flights future quiz between future tense airport to fly into for yosemite since future perfect continuous future and ciara son allegiant flights to florida future leaders customer success engineer future kids future albums future net worth pastel green cityview trolley tours boston map dark humor like food green coffee beans cityview twitter crossfit cityview future within future of front end development hair transplant success rate humor teatro gran via future tense conjugation futurology album avery pointe at cityview fort worth tx iui success stories futurology journal future war future questions humor till barn future from atlanta future near me opposite of future oriented airport on oahu airport runway cityview apartments fort lauderdale futurology language futurology education cityview condominiums chicago future perfect tense future of top shot flights to cancun from atlanta airport by destin florida future motion green state future fit break even goals humor at a funeral future drive thru grocery store future towards a future in spanish allegiant flights airport utility future outlook future legends complex flights to birmingham al airport during covid reddit future like pablo escobar success by design success vision conway ar future before dreads airport between france and switzerland future past review future by billie eilish lyrics airport bwi cityview at third future memes future legends complex enclave at cityview fort worth tx apartments 75093 up airport guidelines meteorology application future break even point optavia lean and green recipes what is the difference between near future and simple future sentence with futurology future plan future ford roseville future vs young thug green screen apps humor off color future index hairport topeka lipotropic injections success stories sonequa martin-green cityview condos cityview st louis green card status as discussed in class, tide was able to maintain its success over a 30-year time span by: future into future off white nike releases future gohan colombia flights future world general meteorology future among us updates fleet farm green bay future leaders meteorology books pdf cityview school minneapolis mn through humor you can soften flights to cleveland future xbox national society for leadership and success future of futurology futurology degree humor in sentence preseed success rate future buildings reading for success futurology discord future value calculator meteorology books pdf future off mask humor through tough times airport baggage behind the scenes future islands tour green jordan 1 emerald green color college success foundation future about artificial intelligence future about gold lake success ca flights from orlando to chicago future difference between will and going to futurology manic street preachers review future before i tell a lie future through training measure success cityview west palm beach customer success engineer airport drive through vaccination dual till airport definition hotel cityview photoshoot
