My Thoughts

As a mother, I´m always trying to find ways to empower my two girls. I want them to know that they´re not on this planet to cook and clean for their future partners, nor do I want them to have the impression that girls / women can´t achieve their goals because of their gender. We live in 2018 so my efforts aren´t too tiring.

Now, I´m not a Social Justice Warrior or a 2.0 Feminist. I don´t rant about gender equality nor do I go on a strike at home, at work ( That would be stupid since I´m my own boss) or anywhere else.

No movement has ever helped me become the strong person I am today and I still don´t need a movement to help me achieve my goals. If I want something then I´ll sure damn well make sure I get it, just like everyone else.

So, with that being said- I want my girls to become strong individuals when they grow up.

Sometime after Christmas, Mirjam ( my dear friend and partner in crime) brought my girls a Christmas present. I´m always uncomfortable when friends of mine bring gifts for the witches because many just don´t „get them“. Mirjam does. And what a wonderful surprise she brought.

„Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls: 100 Tales of Extraordinary Women“ by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo.Goodnight Stories

I am in LOVE and so are my girls.

A beautiful book about international women who dreamed big and aimed high in their lifetime.

From Coco Chanel to Helen Keller. From Joan Jett to Jane Austen…. So many women who went against the stream and made a difference with their actions.

Each mentioned woman has a one page biography , including an illustration of said woman, with a glimpse of their lives including their achievements.

I cannot begin to say how often my girls sit on the sofa and read about Jane Goodall or Cleopatra and all the others with sparks of awe in their eyes. And at night, when they´re in bed, I steal the book and read through it myself because it´s THAT interesting.

A great, inspiring book for little women and even adults. I wish I could buy this book for my neighborhood just because it´s that well put together and fabulous.

Would I reread this book? I already am.

Would I recommend this read? Absolutely! There´s no way around it- Every little girl needs this book. It´s colorful, it spotlights many inspiring women ( besides Oprah. Oprah isn´t in this one.) and it´s also a great book for young girls to learn about historical figures ( Queen Elizabeth, Katharina the Great).

The Cover – 5 Stars ( It´s cute. It´s colorful. It´s busy but not pushy.)

The Stories – 5 stars ( Love. )

My emotional state after finishing this book: Happy I have a friend with such great taste and ecstatic I have a friend who shows love for my girls. I´m also over the moon with joy that this book exists for children!

I´m giving `Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls: 100 Tales of Extraordinary Women 5 out of 5 stars.

Short Story Description

What happens when a lawyer travels into a fairy tale and meets a sexy prince, cranky dragons and a psycho nymph? For Round Four of the Romance Smackdown – A Tale of Departures.

My Thoughts

A Fairytale gone OVERBOARD!

I love Debbie Goelz to bits! „The Lady in the Tower“ is a fascinating, creative and intelligent story that had me smiling for days after reading!

I have to be honest- I had no clue what I was getting myself into when I started reading. The story started out interesting and after the dragons came into the picture I just couldn´t help myself. I woke the evil, snoring dragon who lays by my side at night because I laughed so hard.

Loved the dragons, loved the nymph, loved the prince…. Meeh, * wave off * I loved everything about this story- even the AHA! Moment. It´s simple storytelling done in a brilliant way.

This is what storytelling is all about, folks. It´s about letting your imagination run wild and that is what this writer has done.

Debbie Goelz has a beautiful, colorful imagination and I couldn´t be more happy that I found her stories on Wattpad.

I´m giving „The Lady in the Tower“ 5 out of 5 stars.
