I thought I’d make a special post for International Women’s Day. I found this tag from Dianthaa Dabbles. My tarot and astrological posts will be up soon they just require a lot of research. I was going to do research for my first Zodiac post (Aries) but I simply fell asleep. So the longer post will be up when they are up. Until then a little something for International Women’s day and remember to think of your sisters not just your cis-ters.
A book with a (closer to) gender-equal society
Skin of the Sea
A interesting world of mermaids gods and goddess this world is a lot closer to gender equality with its magic and monsters than our real world.

A book about writing your own story

A story with women working together
The Bone Spindle
Two vastly different heroines on a treasure hunt for their own reasons. They end up encountering an old curse, a new dangerous woman, and all their own issues. It makes for a wonderful edge of your seat adventure.
Amazon: The Bone Spindle
A book with a twist on a traditional gender role
The Troubled Girls of Dragomir Academy is a good book when talking about the role of women they literally shifted the women’s role in society and ended up with a problem that the main character has to face in this book. It’s all very interesting and the book comes highly recommended.
A woman in a man’s world
Goddess in the Machine
When Andra wakes from her thousand year sleep she’s surrounded by men, but she manages to get a good deal of information about her situation out of Zhade and quickly takes charge of the situation despite having little idea of the larger problems.
Amazon: Goddess in the Machine
A book with a matriarchal society
It didn’t say a matriarchal society you’d want to live in. This book had me wanting to half be really nice to Siri and half chuck my Apple products across to room, needless to say Ophelia, is in charge.
Amazon: The Infinity Courts
A book with a positive romantic relationship
Sweet and Bitter Magic
While it doesn’t start out as a romantic relationship these two hold each other up in ways that I haven’t seen in some other written couples, even though they are tied together at first it becomes clear very quickly that they want the best for each other despite the bond.
Amazon: Sweet and Bitter Magic
A book featuring a women’s issue
A Kind of Spark
This deals with the issue of women’s history and witch burning in Scotland. It also deals with the underdiagnosis of women and girls with autism which is an international problem.
Amazon: A Kind of Spark
Flowers and chocolates
Séance Tea Party
This book is definitely a flowers and cholate book, it’s also full of women making connections between the ghost and the girl who summoned her. The ghost and an old school mate, the girl and new friends the ghost helps her make, and all sorts of tea parties and food throughout.
Amazon: Séance Tea Party
