Celebrating Female Authors for International Women’s Day!

On one day each year, the whole world comes together to celebrate what I think, in my humble opinion, is the best species in the world: women! March 8th is International Women’s Day, and here at Wonderfully Bookish, I’m joining in the celebration with a few other great gals.

I bought books from Amazon, The Works (a British bookshop if you’re not familiar with it) and also books for my Kindle. Here’s a list of all of them with their synopsis in case you fancy reading them too!
