How to be a Heroine
Book #113 Read in 2014
How to be Heroine by Samantha Ellis
This is a non-fiction book, where the author reflects back to her literary heroines that she revered as a younger reader...and she decides to revisit them by re-reading the books and seeing if she still feels the same about them. Ellis does a nice combination of more mainstream books (Gone with the Wind, Little Women) and more obscure titles. It was an interesting read to me; I enjoy reading about readers reflecting on their reading. I read this book in a day; it flowed well.
I received a copy of this book from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for a honest review.
