When it turns cold outside there is nothing better than sitting in a cozy chair or on the sofa, a cup of tea next to you while reading a book. A number of striking and forward thinking female authors not only have found a very unique language to describe the many struggles of today’s society, they moreover create plots that catch the reader already with the first words.

Zadie Smith: “Swing Time”

Margaret Atwood: “A Handmaid’s Tale”
