for women who love to read
A variety of stories and themes
I love reading and below are a few that I have enjoyed over the years.
These are just a few which cover a different tastes.
I have hundreds of suggestions on offer (should anyone be interested ☺️ just let me know in the comments section and I will do a monthly post on this topic).
The 7 books
1. Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts
The storytelling in this book is beautiful. It is long and may take some time to get into but it is well worth it.
2. Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis
For the rock ‘n roll fundie or child of the 80s or 90s – Scar Tissue, the autobiography of Anyhony Kiedis is insane. It is amazing that the man is still alive.
3. An Artist of the Floating World by Kazoo Ishiguro
For incredible writing that is almost visual An Artist of the Floating World is a good buy. Any book by Kazuo Ishiguro is amazing.
4. Disgrace by J.M Coetzee
I couldn’t put this list together without including JM Coetzee.Disgrace is not only enlightening but gut wrenching.
5. Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden.
Another beautiful story is Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden although I doubt any serious reader would not have read this.
Sidebar – the movie is as beautiful as the book which is never the case so it’s worth a look.
6. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
The Book Thief is not only interesting but it is very well written.
7. The Spy Who Came in From the Cold by John le Carre
For those who enjoy a spy book a good read is The Spy Who Came in From the Cold. John le Carre knows his stuff and getting hooked on his books is easy to do.
This is one of my favourites of his, not just because of the story but because of the sadness Le Carre manages to convey beautifully.
