After two weeks without reading an actual book, but ironically reading a lot about books and authors, I am excited to share with all of you how my bookshelf will look this summer.
Books by Fearless Women of the World

One of the first undocumented immigrants to graduate from Harvard reveals the hidden lives of her fellow undocumented Americans in this deeply personal and groundbreaking portrait of a nation.
It’s 1944, and sixteen-year-old ballerina and gymnast Edith Eger is sent to Auschwitz. Separated from her parents on arrival, she endures unimaginable experiences, including being made to dance for the infamous Josef Mengele.
A moving and gripping story about three women who keep unspeakable truths.
A celebration of community, family, and the value of hard work in small-town America.
Within every woman, there is a wild and natural creature, a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. Her name is Wild Woman, but she is an endangered species.
A compilation of words written over coffee cups around Madrid’s coffee shops. A written and visual journey about a year of creation, destruction, and introspection.
A compilation of personal and inspirational answers to the question, “what would I do if I weren’t afraid?”
Book about a topic I know absolutely nothing about:
A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland
Re-Reading Classics for the Soul
10. Cien años de soledad by Gabriel García Márquez
Una de las aventuras literarias más fascinantes de nuestro siglo.
George Orwell’s timeless and timely allegorical novel—a scathing satire on a downtrodden society’s blind march towards totalitarianism.
One of my 2020 resolutions is to be more mindful of my book selection process and to try my best to ensure my reading is diverse enough. Also, I pledged to myself to read mostly books written by females authors. The above list makes me really proud. Let me know if you add any of these books to your summer shelf or even better share yours.
I will, of course, share all the book reviews through @emandtheshelf’s Instagram account. And I might feature some books here at the blog as well.
