  1. I am looking for a woman biography, can I get a recommendation?

    1. Hi Grace Anne, I think you’ve got me there. I can’t think of a biography I have read about a woman. The question has made me think though, I’m not sure why I haven’t but I can’t even think of a book that I have heard of off the top of my head.

      I will now be on the search for women’s biographies and see what I can find and add them to my reading list. I thought the book by Hadley Freeman on the list above was good as was the one about MIranda Hart but neither were biographies, but had elements of biographical details mixed with entertainment.

      If you find a good women’s biography let me know! I think Lena Dunham wrote a book that is supposed to be good but I’m not that aware of her. Another writer I’ve seen people rave about is Caitlyn Moran, again I haven’t read her work but you could see if they would interest you.

      1. I like reading about women. I’ll definitely look into those books. Biographies, I was looking for them as I’m interested to work my way in that area. And yes, I’ll definitely let you know if I find something. Thank you so much for the reply.😄
