I'm not sure if I'd call myself a feminist - I'm not that into the whole women-against-men rhetorics to be honest but I'm happy to confess that I love nothing more than a book with a strong female protagonist. Like Katniss Everdeen or Scarlett O'Hara. I like my women, like I like my G&T - strong and unapologetic.
And with no further ado, here's my list of books that features strong, sassy females who make for great (albeit fictional) role models and mentors:
"Rules of Civility" by Amor Towles
"The Best of Everything" by Rona Jaffe
"Gone With The Wind" by Margaret Mitchell
"A Vision of Loveliness" by Louise Levene
"The Stars in the Bright Sky" by Alan Warner
"The Summer Without Men" by Siri Hustvedt
