The Reading Agency’s March booklist - Wonder Women

To mark International Women’s Day (8 March) and celebrate the achievements, triumphs and general brilliance of women and girls around the world, we have created a booklist with stories about wonder women and girls.

We would love to hear what books you’d recommend on social media using #booklist and tagging @readingagency. You can see our past booklists here.

Our monthly booklists

The monthly themed booklists are co-ordinated in-house by the Reading Partners team. The aim of our booklist themes is to highlight a variety of titles which children, young people and adults will want to read themselves and to encourage reading for pleasure. We aim to create booklists that include titles that are written and illustrated by authentic voices and then include characters that reflect the diverse society of the UK. (Please note our monthly booklists are not part of our Book Selection Framework applied to programme content).


Radio 2 Book Club - Winter titles

The Winter season of the Radio 2 Book Club is out now, with brilliant brand-new fiction titles to discover. The BBC Radio 2 Book Club is on the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show. It features a wide range of titles and authors, recommending great reads from both new and much-loved writers, encouraging listeners to perhaps try out a genre they might not have read before, and share their opinions and insights on the titles and great reads they’re enjoying right now.
