    "This is an excellent book, one of the great dystopian novels. This book was the precursor of books like The Hunger Games and Divergent. It is rather on the short side, and be read in one sitting. I would not put this book at the top of female authors, like Austin or Wharton or Buck, but it is for sure worth a read, especially for those who prefer more modern literature."

    "Sense and Sensibility is one of my favorite romance novels by Jane Austen that also serves as a societal commentary. Jane Austen was a revolutionary author for her time, and the messages in her books are still relevant to this day. I recommend this book for anyone who likes romance novels and socio-politic commentaries."

She's an excellent writer who excels at bringing her characters to life. I like how to story is told from the perspectives of the wife and daughters. It's a long book but enjoyable and worth reading."

    "I started reading "The Diary of a Young Girl" while In Amsterdam. The book was sitting on the shelves of the hotel. When I realized that the Frank hiding place, The Secret Annex at 263 Prinsengracht is 3 minutes from our hotel, I made it my mission to go visit the Anne Frank huis and museum AND to finally read this diary. The Anne Frank house and museum was of course remarkable. It was very special to walk in those rooms and know the exact space where she wrote this diary and lived in hiding for two years. I am in awe of what these 8 people were able to tolerate and disheartened that the end was such a tragic one for them. I apologize if I digress. I felt the hiding place itself was monumental to the story. The diary of Anne Frank is indeed the diary of a young girl ... She is witty, funny, elaborate, smart , in great conflict with her mother, adoring of her father, in search of more love and understanding and encouragement from her parents and exploring the opposite sex with great curiosity and a bit too much analysis (for my taste I suppose.) I loved Anne Frank and her remarkable depiction of the two years in hiding ... She had amazing knack for describing the human dynamics of 8 people in The Secret Annex but I must say, she spent an awful lot of time fussing about her mother (I do relate, nonetheless), and also about Peter, one of the members of the families in hiding."

It is impossible to answer that even if we are specifically pointing out the certain genres but this book by Toni Morrison is nothing special. Just a mediocre piece of writing which is regarded as classic by a small group of readers. There's nothing breathtaking about it. "

    "To be honest, if one states that that novel is the best book written BY a female author, you're completely wrong. There are way better literary pieces written by females. What about "And Their Eyes Were Watching God" by Zora Neale Hurston? Let's move to more great modern-day pieces such as the Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling? Such an intricate and beloved world of magic and beauty it completely transformed literary pop culture and even gave us a Harry Potter theme park in Universal! Cheerful Weather may be a good book, I have not read it, but I don't believe it to be the best book by a female author, there are way too many to even bring it down to one sole book."

It was a scary and incredible sad situation and even after watching documentaries about the Peoples Temple organization and Jonestown, I still had a hard time grasping how this could happen. This book helped fill in the gaps of my understanding. The author was a member of this religion and she uses her perspective, and the perspective of other Jonestown survivors, to share how and why people joined this organization and were willing to move to an isolated part of the world, and even die for this religion.

    "I love Alaska. Everything's bigger there-- the mountains, the sky, the wildlife. I'd love to go back as I've got family there, and a large piece of my heart remains there always. But Alaska can be a very tough place to live, and author Kristin Hannah has done a good job of illustrating this with the tale of an off-the-grid family hiding the dark secret of an abusive husband. I can't always let myself read stories like this, because they take a person to dark places, so this book isn't for everyone; but it's a great book by a female author, and I would recommend it to anyone who feels emotionally stable and is interested in an accurate depiction of life in Alaska.

    "Monday or Tuesday or is nice collection of eight short stories by the acclaimed Virginia Wolf. The stories are thought provoking but some find her style of writing difficult to follow. Read about femenism and women's values in way not told before. The stories may be short, but they are indeed powerful. "
