Women of Genre Fiction Reading Challenge – 1st Quarter Check-in

As I have in the past couple of years, I’ve joined Worlds Without End’s 2017 Women of Genre Fiction Reading Challenge. I’m hoping to read twenty-four books by new-to-me women authors in the genres of science fiction and fantasy. I thought I’d do a quick “end of the first quarter” check-in to see how it’s going:-D

So I am cheating a bit, there are a couple of authors on the list that aren’t “new to me,” but I figure I’d leave them up for now, and hopefully I’ll be able to replace them with “new” authors later in the year. Here’s what I’ve read and reviewed so far, and you can click the links to read my reviews:

Agents of Dreamland by Caitlín R. Kiernan

Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough

Heartstone by Elle Katharine White

Miranda and Caliban by Jacqueline Carey

Phantom Pains by Mishell Baker

Six Wakes by Mur Lafferty

Star’s End by Cassandra Rose Clarke

Winter of the Gods by Jordanna Max Brodsky

Eight books so far isn’t bad, but I need to keep up the momentum so that I can ultimately replace some of these with “new” authors at some point. Look for my “half-year” check-in at the end of June!

Are you doing this challenge or any others? I’d love to hear about them:-)

      Yeah, if it’s way too easy for you I guess you should congratulate yourself! I find its hard to fill the slot of “new to me” authors, because I tend to read the same authors over and over.

  1. I joined this challenge last year after reading about it here. This year I went a bit nuts with the Worlds Without End challenges – I signed up for this one again, the 48 book goal since only 12 have to be “new to you.” I also signed on for the “Read the Sequel” challenge, because I’m terrible at continuing series. And then, thanks to all the fab stuff from Tor, I’m doing the “Tor.com Free Short Fiction Reading Challenge” and the “Big Fun in a Little Package Novella Challenge.”

  2. I need to go back onto the site – I really couldn’t work out how to post my review of ‘new to me’ female authors, but I have taken part all my own. I think you’re doing very well – as for me… after a strong start, it’s all gone peelie-wallie this month. But hopefully April will be better for me.
