This was a fantastic read. A great book about books (and authors) for women. I had read eight out of the twelve authors/books that Erin Blakemore chose for her 'bookshelf' and thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the authors and the insights into the heroines. I read these essays first. Then I went back and read the four sections on the authors/books I hadn't read (or actually even heard of!) I've now made a list of all the books and Erin's other recommendations for books to read that have similar heroine's to the choices on her bookshelf. I'll be working my way through all those books as well. I borrowed this book from the library on recommendation from my sister, who knows the author. I hadn't expected to like it so well. I've now requested my own copy for Christmas!
Good book, a little predictable at times. Perfect for teens!
I loved this book. If there is one thing I have learned from motherhood (and there are many) is that women understand what you are going through in a different way then men. It is important to have one friend that you can always count on. This book was much better than several other "women friendship" books that I have read.
I was disappointed. I was hoping for more astronomy and discussion of what happened after the discovery. It wasn't a bad book, but it was not what I was expecting.
My second time to read it, and it's been so long, it was like the first. I really liked it. It's a huge book, packed with historical details, but she also manages to cram in quite a bit of action--not to say romance! I'm a big fan of the series, and am really enjoying the show, as well.
