18 Great Books by Women

There are so many great books by women. I saw that March 8th is Woman’s Day and thought it would be a great idea to make a list of books by women authors to help everyone pick something to help celebrate. Here are a few that I have read and I think are great. I tried to include as many genres as I could.

Historical Fiction

Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati
This is actually a series but you could read it as a stand alone. A historical fiction that is one of my all time favorites.

Mistress of the Revolution by Catherine Delors


Legendborn by Tracy Deonn
This is a wonderful fantasy novel that you should definitely checkout if you haven’t already.

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Book 1 of The Shadow and Bones Trilogy. This is another fantasy that I enjoyed although I have only read the first book.


Drop the Ball: Achieving More by Doing Less by Tiffany Dufu
This is such a great book for all those career women who want it all.

Get Your Sh*t Together by Sarah Knight


The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah
This was such a hear wrenching tale.

Pieces of My Heart by Mary Higgins Clark
This is the 7th book in the Under Suspicion series. However, I read this as a stand alone and loved it.


Gilded Cage by Vic James
This is a the first book in the Dark Gifts Trilogy. I loved this so much. I have read the first two books and need to get to the last one.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Magaret Atwood
This is the first in a duology. This is a great book that everyone should read at least once. That’s why it is so well known, talked about and on so many must read lists.


Beaches, Bungalows & Burglaries by Tonya Kappes
This is the first in A Camper & Criminals Cozy Mystery Series. There are currently 26 books. This series is set at a camp ground in a small town where the owner is always somehow involved in a murder mystery. It is one of my favorite cozies.

Dark, Witch & Creamy by H.Y. Hanna
This is the first book in the Bewitched By Chocolate Mysteries. There are seven book currently. If you love a more witchy vibe to your cozies then this one is for you.


Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris
I love this twisted, disturbing thriller. I recommend it all the time.

The Replacement Wife by Darby Kane
This is a debut thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
