For a variety of reasons, men aren’t always seen as bookworm types.

Luckily, for those who can’t put novels down, there’s hope that this stereotype will be forgotten. An Instagram account known as “Hot Dudes Reading,” which launched in February 2015, documents men who are caught reading while on the subway in New York City. With only 39 posts so far, it has more almost 425,000 followers.

Men reading books is hot, and men reading books that speak to the woman psyche and thought process is even hotter, so here are five books that every man should read for clarity on the life of being a woman. Let the female swooning begin.

Five daughters all search for a husband before their father dies and they get kicked out of the house due to an English law. At first none of the men seem like a good match for the ladies, but fate has its way at the end of the novel.

Why guys should read it:

Never underestimate the power of sisterhood. The novel serves as a humble reminder to men that if at first you don’t succeed at winning her heart, try again. Because maybe the first two times, or five, it wasn’t a good time and her sisters weren’t sure at all that you were Mr. Right.

 5. Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit

 Plot:

Solnit humorously explains what goes wrong when men and women converse. She finds that men assume they’re right about things, and they wrongly assume that women don’t understand what they’re talking about.

Genre: Essay collection

Why guys should read it:

Women usually do know what they’re talking about. This book is a reminder to let women speak their minds, and it serves as a conversation topic about how this aspect of gender warfare works in the relationship between men and women.
