She’s a Heroine

Hello Dear Followers,

I have finished “The Heroine’s Bookshelf” by Erin Blakemore and while I don’t know exactly which book I will read next, I have some thoughts to share about Ms. Blakemore’s book.

I loved it. I realized as I was reading that she should be included in the list of authors/characters she mentions as a “heroine” simply for the connections she makes to modern-day life and how she shares many similarities of authors that lived hundreds of years ago.

I loved reading more about Laura Ingalls Wilder, Jane Austen, Anne Shirley and many more.  These were girls/women that stood out on their own and became icons in their own right.  I think with this book, Ms. Blakemore has done the same, she is a heroine. I look forward to reading more from her in the future.

So a big thank you to Ms. Blakemore for the time she took to write this book and re-introducing me to the heroines we have grown to love.

Until next time…

  1. I don’t usually comment on blogs about my book, Daniela, but this one made me smile ear-to-ear and I thought you should know it. Thank you so much for your kind words. They mean a lot.
