5 Books Week: Day 2


Continuing from yesterday's post, here are five books by women that everyone should read. I don't have time today to do little descriptions for each of these (sorry!), but I will be able to update things tomorrow night. There are a few more young adult authors on this list, as YA Lit tends to have a lot more female authors, and I like to feature ones that you may not have encountered before. 5. Gilead by Marilynne Robinson

4. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

3. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

2. A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf

1. Forever by Judy Blume
