The books I often find myself recommending the most are the empowering ones. The type of books that make us want to stand up for what we believe in and fight for what’s right. The type of books that leave us a little different from when we turned the first page. It’s these books that show us just how powerful the written word can truly be.
It’s incredible that a few letters rearranged on a page can make us laugh or cry, but what’s even more amazing are the ability for books to allow us to see the world in knew ways and gain empathy from these experiences. Books make us better people, and it’s these books that I want to share with you that have shaped who I am and have the ability to transform every reader.
These are seven of the most empowering novels.
