When it came time to choose our 2020 book club reads for Mom's Book Nook, I knew I wanted to do something special. It's our fifth year reading and sharing amazing books together, and we have nearly 1,000 members in our online book club.

Since we are a group of women who love to connect over great books and conversation, I thought this year we should choose book club books for women by womenIt was still a tough choice as there are so many amazing female authors creating compelling works of both fiction and non-fiction that are on all of our must-read lists.

With some help from our book club members, I managed to narrow it down to the best book club books for women in 2020, exclusively written by women authors. I hope that you will join us on Facebook and read along with these female driven stories.
