#Read It and Tweet: June 2013



Ask yourself, how many really good books have you read in the last year? We don’t mean kinda-liked-it good, but brilliant-can’t-stop-thinking-about-it good. Exactly! And with so-called 'chick-lit' sales down 10% in the last year, it seems female authors are no longer being taken seriously.

We reckon that’s unfair – because so many brilliant novels are written by women. In our #readitandtweet campaign, we want you to seek a world outside books with pink covers...

So in our #readitandtweet guide to fab books written by women, Company staffers, and some other familiar faces, share the novels they've loved.

Even better, all of these books are available on the iBookstore too! Tweet @companymagazine your own recommendations using #readitandtweet and join our mission to let the world know about the amazing world of female fiction – it’s chick lit, but not as you know it!

Gabrielle Aplin: “This book is all about positivity and it’s sure to take you on a 28-day, life-changing journey! It teaches you how practising gratitude plays a major role in the laws of attraction, and I’m confident it’s played a huge part in everything that I’ve achieved since reading it – I swear by it.”
