#4 The Book of Awesome Women by Becca Anderson

 

Women hold up half the sky and, most days, do even more of the heavy lifting including childbearing and child-rearing. All after a long day at the office. Women have always been strong, true heroes - sheroes, oftentimes unacknowledged. As we shake off the last traces of a major patriarchal hangover, women are coming into their own. In the 21st Century, all women can fully embrace their fiery fempower and celebrate their no-holds-barred individuality. It is time to acknowledge the successful women of the world. 

From the foremothers who blazed trails and broke barriers, to today's women warriors from sports, science, cyberspace, city hall, the lecture hall, and the silver screen, The Book of Awesome Women paints 200 portraits of powerful and inspiring role models for women and girls poised to become super women of the future.

#8 I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara

 

This is true crime at the top of its game. I know this genre is not for everybody but it’s a bestseller page-turner - not a self-help read destined to gather dust on the nightstand. It’s a tale of one woman’s obsession, passion and perseverance to catch a notorious serial rapist and killer in California. Sadly, the author Michelle McNamara did not live to witness the Golden State Killer brought to justice nor her book published.

It’s a tale of two youngsters, Nathaniel and Rachel, left in the care of two shady characters in war-torn London in 1945 as their parents debunk to Singapore for “work”.
