Once upon a time, I did a month long blog event to celebrate women in March. It was a lot of fun but eventually fell by the wayside the last couple of years. It takes time and devotion and I was apparently lacking both. In those intervening years, I’ve picked up several more female authors that I enjoy and I thought it was time to give them their own spotlight.
Have you read any of these ladies and what did you think?

I’ve read the White Trash Zombie series! They are so much fun 🙂
I’m only half way through the series but you’re right, they are a lot of fun! It’s what keeps me coming back. 🙂
Love this post! ❤ I definitely want to read more from several of these authors. 🙂
Thanks! ❤ These are all series that I definitely need to continue/complete. I've added a sub-category to my bookish resolutions for the year for making progress on series I've already started instead of starting yet more series. Ah, mood reader life!
I’ve read Mira Grant (the mermaid books), Katherine Arden (all of the Vasya books), and started a few Sarah Gailey books that I did not love, but I have River of Teeth on my TBR and my fingers crossed.
River of Teeth is part of American Hippo. I did not love her other book I read. I really wish she’d keep going with the hippo series. I absolutely love it. I just need to read the last Vasya book. 🙂
Had no idea K.B. Wagers was female. Huh.
You made me go double check out of paranoia and they are however they prefer they/them now. Same with Sarah Gailey which I forgot about until after my post.
Huh. That’s not really anything I care much about when picking out a book. Gender, orientation, pronouns, race, whatnot, whatnot- I just care about whether the book’s good or not.
Thanks for sharing though!
I’m much the same. It just felt a little disrespectful that I’ve put them on a female list when they’re non-binary but they’ll probably never see this blog to be offended anyway. 😛
Great list! I think I’ve read 4 of these authors (well, really 5 because I have read Seanan’s stuff but not as Mira Grant). I think I read mostly women authors so I always wind up having a ton of recs when people are asking. 🙂
Thanks. 🙂 I wanted to connect my previous lists of favorite female authors but wordpress was fighting me left and right all day on the links so I gave up. =/
WordPress can be so annoying sometimes.
The Winternight series is one of my all-time favourites! I liked A Natural History of Dragons and City of Brass too.
I own half of the dragons series, missing book two and then I can continue. 😀
I think I added a bunch of those books last year and I still need to read a bunch of them. A Natural History of Dragons hooked me in the sample.
I very much enjoyed that one! I bought half the series in one go because I got them so cheap off of BookOutlet. I’m missing book two though. Now my dilemma is that I paid so little that I’m having a hard time paying full price for the second book, even though I’ve already saved so much on the series as a whole. #bookproblems
So the author of American Hippo is also fucking hilarious on Twitter. She made a series of tweets about her horny snails. I didn’t realize it was her until I checked out the name on Goodreads. I already have her added for The Echo Wife.
See how they get you is they have the first book be super cheap but then the second one is more expensive. I…may or may not be considering such a strategy in the future *innocently whistles*
I had at least 8 books in my cart for $35 lol. I still can’t believe I resisted. D:
Daaaamn. I’m proud of you. I don’t think I could’ve lol.
Haha, I still regret it! 😛
We’re our own worst enemy XD
