Earlier this year, Women Who Travel launched our “book club”—a quarterly list of the most exciting new reads to keep on your radar, and pack in your carry-on, according to women who love to read and travel.
We asked our editors and contributors to share their new favorite titles for spring; the ones they couldn't put down until reaching the very last page. Below, you'll find everything from mob sagas and 90's nostalgia hits to thoughtful memoirs. Plus, to celebrate the April 21 launch of NDN Girls Book Club, which amplifies the voices of Indigenous writers, we asked founder Kinsale Drake and her team to share what they're reading this month.
Keep scrolling for 15 books written by women authors that will transport around the world. We'd love to hear which you're reading, or which fantastic new books we missed, on Instagram or Facebook. (Your picks might make it into the next roundup.)
More great reads, from NDN Girls Book Club
When NDN Girls Book Club launches on April 21, it will offer free literary and writing workshops, Indigenous author talks, and other events to Native peoples, particularly youth and girls. Stay in touch via @ndngirlsbookclub on Instagram or ndngirlsbookclub.org for ongoing book and writer recommendations.
