For so long, there was such a dearth of strong female leads in fiction and nonfiction, but luckily, there’s been a massive swell of these books recently. There are books releasing in every genre featuring strong, independent, don’t-take-no-crap women, which I am all about! They’ve made up so much of my reading since the start of the year, in my desperate attempt to wash away the “30-something man who sold out and is now trying to find himself creatively” cliché that I find in books all the time. So, if you’re looking to fill up your reading time with some fantastic women, here are the ones I would suggest, by genre.
