#CalendarGirlsMarch19

Calendar Girls is a monthly blog event created by Melanie at MNBernard Books, and Flavia at Flavia the Bibliophile, and will now be hosted by Katie, and Adrienne at Darque Dreamer Reads. It is designed to ignite bookish discussions among readers and was inspired by the 1961 Neil Sedaka song, Calendar Girl. (Information from Katie at Never Not Reading)

Each month there is a new theme and the theme for March is Women’s History Month: Favorite Book with a Strong Female Lead.

This one was easy for me, even though the book is non-fiction.  The book that I chose is I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai.  If you’re familiar with Malala and her story she’s such a strong young woman who was almost killed for standing up for something that she believed in which was education.

    I love that you chose non-fiction! Malala is SUCH a strong young woman, and I admire her so much! Though, this book is old enough now that maybe she is not so young anymore? GREAT PICK!
