During 2016, I’ve read twenty-four books by female authors that I’d never read before. Well, I’ve actually read twenty-seven – I couldn’t count three as I either didn’t finish them or had already read that author – and I’ve actually got another two still on the go, which are Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, and The Emperor’s Edge by Lindsay Buroker.
So, having read twenty-four books by female authors I hadn’t read before…what did I think?
Most fun? Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger.
Most beautiful? The Stars Seem So Far Away by Margrét Helgadóttir.
Most intricate? Kushiel’s Dart by Jacqueline Carey.
Weirdest? All The Birds In The Sky by Charlie Jane Anders.
One that made me cry? All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven.
This has been a lot of fun, and I’ve definitely come across some authors that I will keep reading! It’s also ridiculously easy – there are suggestions and books all over the place.
As for next year? I’ll be posting on that in the next few days – I’m doing something a little different!
