Recommendations- The Reading Women Challenge|Prompts #1-#10


Reading Challenges are the best way to read more books, and also serves as a means to explore diverse genres and authors, which are otherwise unheard of.

The Reading Women Podcast is one of my favorites because they bring out the best of literature with interactive discussions and author interviews. I decided to join the #ReadingWomenChallenge 2019 because I wanted to read more books by female authors and their prompts were quite simple and diverse.

How does it work?:

  • There are about 25 reading prompts given by the amazing team of The Reading Women.
  • We need to pick a book relevant to each prompt. Remember that, the book you choose must be written by a Female author.
  • You have to read these book over a span of 1 year (throughout 2019).

What do I have in mind?:

Well, a lot you commented on my Instagram stories about recommending books that are easily available and suit each of these prompts perfectly. So I have decided to compile this list (keeping in mind the availability of the book in India).

Let’s get started.

#1 A mystery or thriller written by a woman of color:

#2 A book about a woman with Mental Illness:

#3 A book by an author from Nigeria or New Zealand:

#4 A book about or set in Appalachia:

#5 A Children’s Book:

#6 A Multigenerational Family Saga

#7 A Book Featuring a Woman in Science

#8 A Play

Refer @bookriot for more books (not sure if they are available in India or not)

#9 A Novella

#10 A Book About a Woman Athlete

I will be coming up with the recommendations for the rest of the prompts. Enjoy these books till then, and let me know if you have any other recommendation that you would like the world to know about.

  1. Nicely compiled list 👏👏 Can I add two more? These are books that get generally ignored I feel. For prompt #1 Inspector Singh Investigates series by Shamini Flint. For prompt #2 Girl Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen.
