So without any further delay, let’s get started with some of the most inspiring books for women, part two.
Most Inspiring Books For Women
1) The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
Why Do I Love This Book?
This is one of my new all-time favorite books and it’s basically the story of Evelyn Hugo, who was a fictional actress in the 1950s if I’m not mistaken.
Basically, it’s the story of her life and, uh, it’s a story of how she came to have seven husbands, and it’s a story of love. It’s a story of this one woman’s sacrifice to gain fame and, also, in some ways, it’s a story of the price she had to pay to get that fame.
The thing that I loved about this book is that while there are a lot of inspiring female characters in a lot of books who are very clean, very humble, and they have, you know, the hero aspect to them.
Evelyn Hugo’s character is extremely flawed and she has a lot of faults, but the thing that makes her character extremely powerful and impactful is that she is unapologetic.
She’s unapologetic about the things that she has to do to get where she wants to go, and she owns her mistakes and her regrets.
And I was just so moved to read about that because you always read about heroes who do the right thing and who are, you know, like the typical heroes that we see in movies and stuff.
But here is an extremely flawed, extremely strong-headed, extremely unlikable character, but you can’t help but feel mesmerized by her and also gain some amount of inspiration from her.
2) Pride and Prejudice
Why Do I Love This Book?
The next book that I want to talk about is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. This book is a classic.
Everyone knows this book, everyone has heard of this book, and it’s the story of the Bennett sisters, the Bennett family, uh,
Basically, there are five Bennett sisters, and their mother wants to get them all married off.
She’s very obsessed with getting her daughters married off to some rich guy who can basically save them from their impoverished life.
In all honesty, the only reason you need to read it is for the main character, Elizabeth Bennett, who is one of the best female characters are ever written, in my opinion.
She’s witty, she’s fierce, she doesn’t care about what society has to think of her, she’s a little bit nerdy, and she goes after what she wants and what her heart wants.
Plus, she does all this in 1800s English society, which was extremely patriarchal and extremely unfair towards women, and she is such a breath of fresh air. She’s just an amazing character to read about, and I absolutely loved her character and loved the way her story was written.
I actually read all of Jane Austen’s books because Jane Austen really had the knack for writing some amazing female characters and amazing strong female characters for that time period. Of course, if you look at it from a 2021 point of view, some of the things and some of the actions seem a little bit traditional and still patriarchal, but from an 1800s English society point of view, these characters were groundbreaking and just absolutely amazing.
So definitely check out Pride and Prejudice if you haven’t already and read all of Jane Austen’s books.
3) The Poet X
Why Do I Love This Book?
This is the story of a young Dominican-American girl who lives in New York City. She is just this boisterous, loud, emotional girl, and she’s going through puberty in her teenage years, and she’s just trying to figure everything out.
The really good thing about this book is that it’s written in the form of poems, so the life of this girl, the coming-of-age story of this girl, is written through short poems, which are so emotional, so powerful, and just so amazing to read.
Again, the thing that I loved about this book is that while you have, you know, a lot of young female characters who are demure and ladylike, especially in a society where women are told that they have to be ladylike, they have to sit in a certain way, they have to act in a certain way because that is what is proper in society.
Here we have this young teenage girl who is, just like I said, loud, boisterous, and emotional.
She’s not afraid to explore her sexuality and she just goes after what she believes in and she questions many things that society has kind of set up for her.
Especially in terms of religion, because her mother is extremely religious in this book, and it’s just so so amazing to read because the poems are written in such an emotional and powerful way that you really feel the emotions of this girl, and it’s just a fantastic book.
So if you’re into young adult fiction and you’re into coming-of-age stories, then I highly recommend Port X because it was just absolutely fabulous.
