12 Ultra-Inspiring Nonfiction Reads Written By Women
A major goal for 2018 is to read more literature written by women authors; especially the ones that are already on my shelf that I've neglected for far too long. Because nonfiction is my genre of choice, and my favorite way to learn about the world at large, I've compiled a list of twelve reads that I'm incorporating into my book list for this year. I'm 4/12 at the moment, you'll see the ones I've read, or am currently reading, with a quick synopsis below. xx Kate

A fun, quick, visually-stimulating foray into the home tips, and mind, of one of social media's most sought-after and successful influencers. When you're not feeling up to a deep dive, this is the perfect pick-it-up whenever reading material.
