    Slammerkin: a loose dress; a loose woman. Possibly my favorite book. This book tells the story of a young Victorian woman's obsession with wanting something more for herself, something that she can never achieve: Freedom, cleverly disguised as a single red ribbon.

    Curtis Sittenfeld - Prep is my favorite of her works.

    We might have lost the individual names of the thousands of powerful and brave former slave women who organized in Atlanta, Georgia in 1866 and fought former masters for better domestic working wages, but their amazing story has been restored to history. Tera Hunter's "To Joy My Freedom" is being recommended by Harvard University Press as a moving historical work of interest to fans of "The Help"

    "Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances."

    Outstanding read. And an unbelievable trek.

    Epic book about womanhood.

    As you come to the last chapter, you will be reluctant to continue reading. You will not want this story to come to an end. Actually; you will feel that way when reading any of Kate Morton's stories.

    Men Without Women: Short Stories by Ernest Hemingway

    City of Women. Whom do you trust, whom do you love, and who can be saved? It is 1943—the height of the Second World War—and Berlin has essentially become a city of women.

    One of the best books I've read in a long time. A story about a family and their struggle living through the Depression. The author's descriptions and character development make you feel as if you have gone back in time.

    Another book from my childhood. Fictional story about the cult nature of modern religious groups in the U.S.

    Beautiful Disaster...my new favorite!!!!!!!!

    Slammerkin, one of my all-time top 5 books, has been reissued following the success of Donoghue's "Room"

    The Group by Mary McCarthy... A must read for all women.
