Happy Saturday! It’s Women’s History Month! So today’s tag is that! I saw this on Zezee @Zezeewithbooks‘ blog and thought it was neato so here we are.
PS – I’ve been working at home for a solid week now and I’m a little stir crazy. So guess who’s pre-writing a million blog posts. Time’s up, it’s me!

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – I think this one’s a given. Elizabeth turns down two marriage proposals, makes her mother nutty with angst as a result, and then turns around and marries for love instead of financial comfort.
Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik – Miryem is pretty sharp. She is able to manipulate situations to her own advantage multiple times throughout the story and shows herself to be a shrewd moneymaker.
The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen – Kelsea, the main character in this book, is queen. And honestly I’ve never read a more lawful good character. She’s pretty neat.
Deathless by Catherynne M. Valente – The writing in this is so lyrical and whimsical and dark. I absolutely loved it.
The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang – I feel like ‘warrior’ is a term that can be used loosely. In this book, the main character is a member of the military and does see battle, so I figure it fits.
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers – I’m in the middle of this book right now and I’m rather digging it. It’s so weird and comfy.
The Dark City by Catherine Fisher – Personally I think Fisher is an underrated author, but for those who have heard of her, they tend to know her Incarceron series moreso than this one. And honestly I think this one is way better (though I do like Incarceron). So if you haven’t checked this out yet, do it. It’s a pretty good ya fantasy.
Captive Prince by C. S. Pacat – Honestly there are a lot of things in this book that I shouldn’t like, but for some reason I still really like the book.
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine – One of my childhood favorites. I haven’t read it in years, but I know it’ll be read by my future kiddos.
Grace Hopper, who was a computer scientist and a US Navy rear admiral. She played a prominent role in popularizing machine independent programming, and the development of the COBOL coding language. As a software engineer myself, I really feel her influence in my daily life. She’s super neat.
In Order to Live by Yeonmi Park – This is a memoir written by a woman who defected from North Korea. It’s a tough read, but it’s inspiring.
And that’s it! If you’d like to do this tag, consider yourself tagged! Happy Women’s History Month!
