I know you have a mountainous TBR pile, but it never hurts to take down a few new book recommendations, especially from your teachers and other heroes. TED recently released a list of 101 books that TED speakers want you to read this summer, and I'd say that's a pretty good place to start looking for new reading material, wouldn't you? I've picked out 10 books, all written by familiar women writers, for you to check out below.
Are you behind on your reading this year? So am I. So is, well, everyone. No one reads as much as they should, and every book-lover has a TBR pile they'll never finish. But that's OK. Even if you read one long-awaited book and pick out three more to read later, you're accomplishing old goals and setting new ones.
Whether you've got a reading challenge you want to knock out, or you're just looking for something to read on the flight to your sunny summer destination, the books on the short list below are sure to delight you. Memoirs, fiction, poetry, nonfiction — this reading list has it all!
