Women of Genre Fiction Reading Challenge


I'm terrible at challenges but I sign up for them anyway. Hey, you never know when one might stick!

I learned about the Women of Genre Fiction Reading Challenge from Thuy over at our sister blog, RNSL Nite Lite. The task is to read 1 new book from 12 women authors this year, and write reviews for each. I've actually read books by about 30 of the authors on the women authors page. You have to pick 12 authors whose books you have never read before.

Here's Thuy's reading challenge. And here's mine:
  • Libba Bray The Diviners (The Diviners, #1)*
  • Rae Carson The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1)*
  • Angela Carter The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories*
  • Kathleen Duey Skin Hunger (A Resurrection of Magic, #1)
  • Louise Erdrich The Plague of Doves
  • Nancy Farmer The House of the Scorpion*
  • Nina Kiriki Hoffman The Thread That Binds the Bones (Chapel Hollow #1)
  • Kate Milford The Boneshaker*
  • Naomi Novik His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire, #1)*
  • Tamora Pierce First Test (Protector of the Small, #1)*
  • Catherynne M. Valente The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making (Fairyland, #1)*
  • Moira Young Blood Red Road (Dust Lands, #1)*

I'll update this page as I read and review books from the challenge authors. *I tried to pick authors whose books I already own but have not read. So I only have to buy 3 books! ;)

You can join, too! Sign up here. There are prizes you will be eligible to win if you complete the challenge, but I'm just doing it to read and review the books.
