There are some days when you just wake up low. Nothing is wrong, nothing is amiss, you’re just … low. At times like that, we reach for a book. Well, to be honest, just about at any time we reach for a book, so that’s not unusual. But when you’re feeling at a low ebb, just a little bit flat and life isn’t quite going the way you want it to, that’s when it’s even more important than ever to have a book to lift you up – particularly books like the ones we’ve gathered here for you.
These are all amazing, wholly inspirational stories of women – brave women, strong women, clever, sassy, outspoken and above all indomitable women. Some of these stories will make you laugh, some will make you cry, some will take your breath away. But they’ll all lift you right up and make you feel like you’re part of an extraordinary sisterhood. And don’t we all need a bit of that sometimes?
As Amy Schumer writes in her provocative, ballsy memoir, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo: ‘I know my worth. I embrace my power. I say if I’m beautiful. I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story, I will … I am not my weight. I am not my mother. I am myself. And I am all of you.’
So, get a book under your arm and go forth into the world. Go conquer.
