I love to read. My room is filled with books, and most of my free time is spent reading them, reading about them, or reorganizing my bookshelf. One of my favorite things is when people tell me they’re reading a book I recommended, so I decided to share two books with you that have inspired me or left me thinking.
The first book I would recommend is Half the Sky by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. I first heard of this book from Emma Watson’s feminist book club on Goodreads. This book describes the problems women face in different parts of the world. It also explains how to improve the lives of these women, as well as their communities. Half the Sky inspired me to help other girls around the world.
Another book I would recommend is The Color Purple, by Alice Walker. This book is about two sisters in the early 1900’s. The story follows two sisters - one is a missionary in Africa, and the other is a child wife in the South. The Color Purple is a beautifully written and inspiring story, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
