Women of Genre Fiction Reading Challenge

I decided to join the World's Without End Women of Genre Fiction reading challenge when i realized i already had 10, new to me, female-authored genre books sitting on my shelves at this very moment!  I can also read at least two for class this semester as I'm taking children's literature (below age 12) and have to read several books for that class that I get to choose myself.  Plus I have Young Adult Lit coming up in the summer and again there will be heavy reading.  If nothing else, succeeding at this will get 10 books off my TBR! Here's my list: 

  • Susanna Clarke
  • Nancy Farmer
  • Cornelia Funke
  • N.K. Jemisin
  • Patricia McKillip
  • Robin McKinley
  • Kate Elliot
  • Beth Revis
  • Maggie Stiefvater
  • Elizabeth Bear
 Want to jump in? You have to join World's Without End, it's free.  You choose 12 different female authors that you haven't read before, though they don't have to be done in advance and that can be changed anytime, and one has to be a randomly selected.  I haven't decided how to figure out my random one just yet as well as my 12th.  There's a big range of authors from classic sci-fi, romancey alternate history, to high fantasy and steampunk.  Hop over and sign up!


  1. Glad you joined in. It should be a fun challenge. I'm already reading my first book for it, Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey (yes, I know, its crazy I haven't already read McCaffrey) and I have almost all the authors I want to read piled up either on my bookshelves or in the Kindle.

    I don't think we have any matching ones on our preliminary lists. Although I've already read some of those authors so that makes sense.
