Seems like we’re in hot water all the time!

While March is known as Women’s History Month, any month is a good time to read and learn more about remarkable women. As the pandemic settled on us in March 2020, I polled through various reading groups on Facebook for recommendations on books to read for Women’s History Month. The following compiled list of historical fiction and memoirs/ biographies represents the top ten based on number of mentions. Keep scrolling for a few more titles added in 2021. Don’t see one on the list you recommend? Add it in the comments box.

I invite you to follow my blog for further updates on my journey toward writing my first historical fiction. More information about my debut novel is available on my About page. You can sign up to follow from this page with the pop-up, or send me a note through the CONTACT page and I’ll email you an invitation.

I also post book reviews and tips and ideas for book clubs. I’m on social media, too. On my Facebook page, I also post deals I find on Kindle specials ($1.99, $2.99, etc.) for books I recommend. A great way to add to your e-library with minimal costs. UPDATED 2/14/21: I will check each title before posting to ensure it’s a legitimately published version.
