When I think of summer I think of rolling thunder, glistening lightening bugs, refreshing pools of water, beaches, ice cream, and books. Many, many books.
Books in sand. Books stained with mud. Books on the plane. Books on long road trips. Books on blankets at the neighborhood park. Books that inform you of lives lived, inspire, and take you on trips to faraway lands.

Skip the easy, beach reads, here are the books that will feed your mind with sound advice, empower you to claim your future, and inspire you to change the world.
These 25 books highlight powerful women, real and fictional, as they struggle, overcome trauma, and follow their passions. Some dive deep into the current feminist landscape, while others take you back through time or to a warped, haunted future.
