Must-Read Books by Female Authors: Hot Off The Press

Although September rolls around every year, somehow the smell of pencils, the sound of acorns dropping, and the taste of pumpkin and apple-spiced everything always feel new. As the season and the weather start to change, turn over a new page with three books hot off the press in 2017.

Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide, Patrice Banks

If you haven’t heard, this month Patrice Banks, founder and owner of Girls Auto Clinic and fabulous Philly PR Girl client, launched a do-it-herself-guide to auto maintenance. Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide takes you under the hood to share the best tips and tricks for car maintenance and repair. This engineer-turned-mechanic author and her guide are sure to become your new best friends.

 

Chemistry, Weinke Wang

As Rowan Hisayo Buchanan writes for The New York Times, “Questions are the pulse of this book. Should the girl marry Eric? Why was her parents’ marriage a long and vicious battle? How do you love your parents and hate how sad they make you?” Chemistry, the debut novel by Weinke Wang, follows the journey of its unnamed heroine, a young Chinese-American woman who is trying to figure out what she wants out of her career and relationships. However, the answers she uncovers prove this isn’t your typical coming-of-age novel.

 

It Takes A Village, Hillary Rodham Clinton

Okay, okay, so technically What Happened is the recently released book. But in case the queue for that is too long for you, try former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s children’s book, It Takes A Village, to tide you over. No matter what side of the aisle you stand on, you’ll likely agree with the picture (illustrated by Marla Frazee) of “all kinds of people working together, playing together, and living together” in an effort to make their village a better place.
