When Top Women Journalists + Entrepreneurs Build Your Reading List

Message me directly on PowerToFly if you have any suggestions for this list.

I'm part of a fabulous book club made up of women journalists and entrepreneurs. We even have people in the group who've written some of the more impactful stories to kick off #timesup and #metoo. Because everyone comes to the meetings charged up about what they're working on, we usually spend about fifteen percent of the time talking about the books and eight-five percent of the time discussing our workplaces, relationships and all else that makes us who we are. The club is great fun, but preparing for it is also wonderful because we have such a great list of books.

Since it's Friday, and I'm sick of writing serious content this week, I thought I'd share our list for the next few meetings. My friend Elana Berkowitz writes the blurbs you'll read for each book (except for The Power) and picks out the books with Kate Shaw.

The Power by Naomi Alderman

I'm more than halfway through the book and it's a total page turner that makes you rethink gender parity on so many levels. Plus, it's thrilling and reads super fast.


Exit West by Mohsin Hamid

One of NYT's 10 best books of 2017, refugees, magical realism etc by author of Reluctant Fundamentalist and How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia.


Homo Deus by Yuval Harari

For what its worth, President Obama, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are big fans of this dude's work. Will humans be dominant in 200-300 years? He thinks not.



The Perfect Nanny by Leila Slimani

Huge best seller in France, killer nanny novel written by this badass Moroccan French lady profiled in the New Yorker.
