Book Recommendations Based on Other Books
Loved: Girlboss by Sophie Amoruso
Read: The Multi-Hyphen Method by Emma Gannon
Loved: To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Read: The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
Loved: Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney
Read: Women by Chloe Caldwell
Loved: One Day by David Nicholls
Read: In Paris With You by Clementine Beauvais
A slightly odd choice as In Paris With You is written in verse, but it has the same subtle quality of falling in love with your best friend as One Day does. It also has a similar vibe since the latter is set in Paris and Paris is where Emma and Dexter admit that they have feelings each another for the first time.
Loved: Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
Read: Athena’s Champion by David Hair & Cath Mayo
If greek mythology is your thing, and it definitely is for me, then I highly recommend you have a read of Athena’s Champion by David Hair & Cath Mayo. I worked on the marketing campaign for this when I was at Canelo, but I honestly adored it. Almost as much as I loved Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller, which is an award-winning LGBT+ look at the life of Achilles.
Loved: Expectation by Anna Hope
Read: Adults by Emma Jane Unsworth
Loved: Hot Mess by Lucy Vine
Read: Living the Dream by Lauren Berry
Loved: Girl Up by Laura Bates
Read: Girls Will be Girls by Emer O’Toole
And lastly, as a prominent feminist with lots of opinions and a desire to constantly learn more, it’s time to discuss feminist non-fiction. Laura Bates is a focal point of the current feminist movement. I’ve heard her talk about three times and she is incredibly eloquent and very inspiring. But, as much as I loved Girl Up, her feminist book featuring brilliant insight and dancing vaginas I actually think Girls Will be Girls by Emer O’Toole was better. I don’t mean to sassy, I just genuinely found I learned more from Girls will be Girls than Girl Up.
