Totally Random Lists 2019: Leading Ladies

Editor’s Note: This year our Half Price Books calendar once again features books, movies and music grouped together in weird, unexpected ways. You might even call them Totally Random Lists, which is what we did because, well, we had to put something on the front cover. We like the lists so much, we’ll be sharing them on this blog throughout the year.


We’re taking a page from herstory to discover the plucky girls and uncommon ladies at the center of our favorite stories and music. Heartfelt or heroic, each featured female embodies the complex nature of women in a way that’s both memorable and inspirational.
