Recently, we’ve spent more time than ever reading. Books have brought us uplifting stories to make us feel good, thrilling tales to make reality slide away for awhile and taught us about lives other than our own.

And when you read a great book? You want to talk about it, of course. So that’s what we’re doing here - join our book club and discover some brilliant new reads.

The Reading List

To celebrate International Women's Day this month, our March reads focus on strong female voices.

The Soul of a
Woman

Transcendent Kingdom

The Soul of a Woman

By Isabel Allende

“I never accepted the limited feminine role imposed upon me by my family, society, culture and religion.”

Why we love The Soul of a Woman:

From legendary Chilean author, Isabel Allende, this is a wonderfully lyrical part memoir, part feminist musing. This is a really honest, thought provoking read that truly champions women’s equality and packs so many ideas and things that need to be discussed into less than 200 pages. It is a delight to read, while giving so much food for thought about women’s equality.

The Transcendent Kingdom

By Yaa Gyasi

“I am looking for new names for old feelings. My soul is still my soul, even if I rarely call it that.”

Why We Love Transcendent Kingdom:

Gifty is a neuroscientist and Transcendent Kingdom is her coming-of-age story, albeit in her late 20s. Her complex nature is captured so well; her relationships with her mother, with being a black woman in such a white, male industry and Gifty’s rumination on how science and religion coexist and how (if) they can answer questions for each other.

But the heart of this book is Gifty. A strong woman who is doing everything she can to navigate life and thrive in the best way she can. A truly thought-provoking, wonderfully written story that packs an emotional punch.

Untamed

By Glennon Doyle

“When a woman finally learns that pleasing the world is impossible, she becomes free to learn how to please herself.”

Why we love Untamed:

This has been a tough year for many of us, so looking out for ourselves has never been more important. In this inspiring part memoir, part rally cry Glennon Doyle talks about the importance of really listening to our own voices and pushing your own boundaries. Funny and thought-provoking, this is perfect if you're reflecting and feeling like a change is on the cards.

Circe

By Madeline Miller

“It is a common saying that women are delicate creatures, flowers, eggs, anything that may be crushed in a moment's carelessness. If I had ever believed it, I no longer did.”

Why we love Circe:

Circe is a complex, strong, independent woman. She also happens to be an ancient Greek Goddess who can cast spells. The Gods hadn’t seen witchcraft before and scared by any new power, they exiled Circe. As she is immortal, that is a long exile. What Madeline Miller does so well is humanise iconic characters so that you become invested. Circe is a fast-paced, wonderfully captivating story of a truly enchanting Goddess making her place in the world.

We hope you find some great new reads this month, we’d love to know your thoughts.
