40 Books Every Woman Should Read at Least Once

This is the definitive list of the 40 books every woman should read at least once. When it comes to compiling your reading list, it can be easy to forget about the classic books that have paved the way for modern day writers, choosing to pick up the latest must-read instead of a cult novel.
But from Harper Lee's cult classic To Kill A Mockingbird, to childhood adventures like Alice in Wonderland, via the more recent masterpieces of Donna Tartt and Zadie Smith, there are hundreds of novels that every woman should read at least once in a lifetime.
