#6. The Awakening (Kate Chopin)

Published in 1899, The Awakening was groundbreaking and way ahead of its time. In Kate Chopin’s novel about Edna Pontellier, a New Orleans wife and mother in the late 1800s, who begins questioning her narrowly defined role in life after experiencing attraction to another man. Her existential awakening drives the stories and scandalized 19th century readers, and is an early feminist novel that modern feminists shouldn't miss. In this landmark novel of early feminism, Edna is unmoored from her domestic attachments following a torrid affair with a young man. By the time the novel ends, Edna has progressed from traditional wife to self-actualised and sexually liberated woman. The book makes you question whether it’s better to sleep peacefully or awaken to an impossible reality.
