    That’s a good list Ritu. I haven’t read any, even though The Bell Jar and Palace of Illusions are so popular. As the protagonists are all strong women, so bookmarked these. I would begin with Jo van Gogh-Bonger by Hans Luijten.

    A great list of books that tell us the story of some very influential women in a time when women’s power was still in its nascent stages. I would love to pick up The Bell Jar by Slyvia Path for my reading as the psychological mind-bender sounds very intriguing.

    What an incredible selection of books! Each one seems to offer a glimpse into the lives of extraordinary women who defied norms and shattered stereotypes. It’s amazing how literature has the power to illuminate the struggles and triumphs of women throughout history. Palace of illusion is my all time favorite

      This the first time I am seeing a guest recommended list on your blog Ritu or have I seen any before?🤔 but nonetheless it is an amazing list.. not that i have read any but I have read reviews of a few. It was interesting to learn about the Indian Book Club… the fact that it is virtual makes it all the more so.

    I’ve read 0 out of these and hadn’t even heard of 3 before reading this post. Time to update the TBR! Thanks for these recommendations, Ritu. I’m especially intrigued by The Half Empress.

    Your highlight of women’s stories across cultures and times resonates deeply, especially as we seek inspiration from those who’ve charted their own paths despite the odds. The diversity in the lives and challenges faced by Mary Magdalene, Jo van Gogh-Bonger, Raskapoor, Panchaali, and Esther Greenwood showcases the multifaceted nature of womanhood and its indomitable spirit. Celebrating these narratives not only honors the past but also empowers future generations. Looking forward to diving into these recommendations and joining the vibrant community at The Indian Book Club!

    What an impressive range of books you mentioned in the post Ritu! Each one provides a fascinating insight into the lives of exceptional women who challenged norms and broke stereotypes. It’s remarkable how literature puts focus on the trials and victories of women across different eras. Unfortunately none of the books I read so far but I definitely will love to read the books by the Indian authors first followed by the foreign authors… Yes I am biased towards Indian Authors.

    The Half Empress I think is a worthy read at this point I am lacking the confidence I need to go about life.
