Books all "Real Women" should read.

Julieosis "jujubean122"
The list author says: "As an educated woman I feel there are some books that just speak to me. Here is my list of books that inspired and made me feel wonderful to be a girl! This is a great list for young women in particular either in college or just out on their own. If there is a series, I have only listed the first book."
Wild Acre
Wild Acre
"This is the first in the Wideacre Trilogy. An amazing story that kept me turning pages until the very end. It does get a little weird and the very religious would not find it amusing."
The Other Boleyn Girl
The Other Boleyn Girl
"Phillipa Gregory is one of my very favorite authors and this has been my very favorite book of hers so far. It starts with an execution! What more could a true fantasy/historical fiction lover ask for?! Even my MOM liked this book and she usually can't stand the books I pick out!"
A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1)
A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1)
"Am amazing fantasy novel. If you like knights, maids, battles, and intrigue you will LOVE this series. My only gripe is that there are a million different characters to keep track of so this is not a series you can put down or stop in the middle of if you expect to understand what's going on."
The Twentieth Wife: A Novel
The Twentieth Wife: A Novel
"Oh man was this a good book. I so desperately wanted to get the main heroine with the King in this story and was desperate to read the following sequel: "A Feast of Roses." Even if you know nothing of Indian history this is a great book that will keep you turning pages long into the night. Thank goodness it's not overly long."
Memoirs of a Geisha
Memoirs of a Geisha
"The BOOK made me cry for good reasons. Once again I blame this book for many short nights in terms of sleep. I recommend this book for all those hopeless romantics out there who need a little spice of adventure along with their love affairs. Skip the movie though, it does not do it justice."
The Devil Wears Prada: A Novel
The Devil Wears Prada: A Novel
"Very light and fluffy read targeted towards girls who like fluff. It was fun and entertaining, but not intellectually stimulating at all. Good beach read."
The Birth of Venus: A Novel (Reader's Circle)
The Birth of Venus: A Novel (Reader's Circle)
"I must admit, I was a skeptic when I first started this book. I was hooked about halfway through though. I'm sad to hear that her other novels are not as good (as reviewed by many here on amazon.com). This book however was worth every single moment of "just ONE more chapter" excuses I tossed out to anyone who passed me as I read."
Girl with a Pearl Earring: A Novel
Girl with a Pearl Earring: A Novel
"Yet ANOTHER book the movie slaughtered. I could hardly put this book down. I took it on vacation with me and devoured it in about four hours of constant reading (and had the sunburn to show for it)."
The Kite Runner
The Kite Runner
"Not a book I would have picked up on my own. One my Dad recommended. Historical fiction that is fairly recent and deceptively heartwarming. While I don't agree with the end message of the book, the story kept me reading and that's what I count when reviewing books. Really great read!"
Into the Forest: A Novel
Into the Forest: A Novel
"Weird...but in a good way! A book that kept me saying:"This is weird" through the whole thing, but I couldn't stop myself from finishing it. In the end it was just SO GOOD! I wish she would write a sequel already!"
Plain Truth: A Novel
Plain Truth: A Novel
"Jodi Picoult is not my favorite, but this book is an exception to the rule. A true mystery novel through and through with a little romance and court drama thrown in along the way. If you only read one Jodi book read this one it will be worth it."
The Clan of the Cave Bear: Earth's Children, Book One
The Clan of the Cave Bear: Earth's Children, Book One
"If you have not read Jean M. Auel you are missing out! Half fantasy half historical fiction, "Clan of the Cave Bear" will keep you on your toes and melt your heart. Pick it up tonight if you've yet to read it!"
The Friday Night Knitting Club (Friday Night Knitting Club Novels)
The Friday Night Knitting Club (Friday Night Knitting Club Novels)
"Even if you are not a knitter you'll like this one. Several sassy New York women who come together to share joy, laughter and tears. Totally worth a glance."
She's Come Undone (Oprah's Book Club)
She's Come Undone (Oprah's Book Club)
"I can hardly believe this was written by a man. If you're a woman who has ever had a weight problem, or even if you haven't, this is a book worth reading. It takes a box of kleenex to get through, but it is worth it in the end."
Where the Heart Is (Oprah's Book Club)
Where the Heart Is (Oprah's Book Club)
"While the movie didn't slaughter this book as bad as some others on my list, it will never live up to the original book. A gripping heartfelt read about a woman down on her luck. Something all of us can relate to at sometime in our lives."
Good in Bed
Good in Bed
"Not at all raunchy as the title suggests. Another great book for those of us who have a few pounds to loose. Great even for those of us who don't. As chicky as they come."
Outlander: A Novel
Outlander: A Novel
"Just plain fun! Great characters, great sex, great romance, and great adventure. Kept me on the edge of my seat for days!"
