There aren’t enough female super-heroes that have gained the same amount of popularity as Batman, Superman, Iron man, or Whateverman. The past year, though, women superheroes have been getting more attention! (Thank you, Wonder Woman!!) Therefor, inspiring toy lines, clothing lines and more, all geared towards girl power and she-ra bad-assery.
Here’s a little secret, though… There’s a whole world of fierce heroines waiting to be discovered. They are at your book store! Just about every book I pick up has a female heroine who is all sorts of freaking amazing and inspiring.
Lately, I’ve seen lists like ‘If you liked Wonder Woman, you’ll love these books’. And it makes me so happy!
For my adult readers, here are some books to inspire your inner Wonder Woman.
