“Let’s be reasonable and add an eighth day to the week that is devoted exclusively to reading.” – Lena Dunham Reading has helped shape so many of the ideas and beliefs that I hold true to myself. It has only been the last few years that I have really been exploring different types of books and been devouring Book after book in the process. Book reviews, ebooks, my book club, and a global pandemic. Have all been sources of inspiration for my own personal reading challenge. Books have helped cheer me during sadder times, motivate me to change, inspired me to do better, and entertained me. As a result, these are all reasons why I simply love to read so much. As a woman in my early 30’s I have found that books have been especially helpful in helping me embrace my modern femininity. I have learned so much and felt so empowered through the books I have read over the past few years. I feel like now more than ever before woman are sharing their stories. Similarly, every year there are more and more female authors sharing their knowledge insights, and lives with the world. There was a time not too long ago when the publishing world was dominated by men and women were not encouraged to read at all. The reading challenge of those times was simply finding a book or any book geared towards women and women’s minds. Thankfully times have changed and are changing. We have more power now to seek out the influence that is right for us. Created by other women for women. That is why I am so passionate about reading and I feel such a draw to inspire and motivate other women to read. In this reading challenge, I urge you to read books that inspire, entertain and empower you. To read books by women, about diversity and about the female body and heart. Think of every book you read as a way to learn about the world and yourself in a new and exciting way. In addition, to gain new perspectives about old ideas. And shed old ideas by gaining new knowledge. Who knows where your reading challenge will take you or how it will impact your life and the life of those you love. However, I guarantee that you will have fun along the way. Additionally, to create a reading habit that sticks check out these tips. Happy reading. To follow along with my reviews and the books I am reading follow me on Goodreads. 52 Book ideas for a Womans Reading Challenge A book that is written by a comedian A feminism book Self-help book A book that is from Reece Witherspoon’s book club A fantasy Reread a teen favorite A thriller A book published this year A book about black lives A biography about a woman you admire Romance set in Europe A recommended book Written by a black female author Found at a second-hand shop Set during world war two A book about a pandemic A horror Home improvement book A book about being creative Recipe book A spiritual book A health and fitness book A book that is about the female body A book about motherhood Marriage and relationship book A biography of your favorite actress A book that is by a female entrepreneur Set in nature Written by a local female author A book about a woman’s life in a different part of the world A classic A book that is on a subject you know nothing about A book you have been meaning to read The first book in a new series Your mom’s favorite book Financial planning book True Crime A book borrowed from a friend A book that is set somewhere that you would like to travel Fairy tale retelling The book version of a favorite movie A science book A book about that is about the cosmos Mythology book A book you own but have not read An emotional true story A book published the year you were born A book by your favorite author you have not read An inspirational story A book about that is about a group of girlfriends A book about being single An LGBTQ book
