We all love a good story and if they can make us laugh, help us connect to being human, and inspire us to be better, then they’re even more worth our time.

Lately I’ve been reading a lot of these wonderful narratives from female authors that are not only making a splash on the literary world but also in pop culture, blogosphere, and culture as a whole.

I call these Bad Ass Lady Books!
