1. Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy by Karen Abbott, which tells the story of four different women who went undercover as men in the Civil War.

2. The Woman Who Would Be King by Kara Cooney, a biography on Hatshepsut, the longest-reigning female pharaoh of Ancient Egypt.

3. At the Dark End of the Street by Danielle L. McGuire, which describes the struggles of African American women during the Civil Rights Movement and their resistance towards the discrimination.

4. The Poker Bride by Christopher Corbett, which describes the lives of the Chinese in the American West during the 1800s through the telling of the story of a young Chinese teenager named Polly.

5. The Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston, in which the author explains how growing up as a Chinese American and the immigrant experience that shaped her.
