At the beginning of every month, I’m doing a post on the things I’ve read the previous month. September was a whirlwind of moving and getting acquainted to the Midwest and learning about myself as a graduate student. That being said, having read four books is quite the accomplishment. From Japanese fantasy to future-NYC to recent-past NYC to heartbreak, here’s what I read in September 2016.
It’s International Women’s Day and I wanted to draw some attention to five women and girls that I met in recent reads. They’re pretty different from each other and I wanted to compile them into a helpful list for fellow female-lead story writers such as myself to draw inspiration from. From women who can rule the world to kids looking for companionship, this list has some of it all.
