I read mostly fantasy and science fiction (Adult and YA both). I tend to prefer women authors and women protagonists (though not exclusively) and I definitely prefer books with lots of women/girl characters, whether or not the main character is one. My favorite authors right now include Robin McKinley, John Scalzi, Seanan McGuire, Diane Duane, Gail Carriger, Scott Westerfeld...
Don't get this!
Epic fantasy, non-fiction, romance, Christian/religious fiction, grimdark, horror. The next book in a series I've already read part of. Some specific authors I dislike: GRRM, Neil Gaiman, Anne McCaffrey, Mercedes Lackey, Patricia McKillip
My LT library is up to date (I'm pretty sure). The Wishlist collection is books that I am interested in reading, not necessarily books I want to own. I am most interested in new-to-me authors.
bluesalamanders's Secret Santa is williecostello. Help williecostello pick the right book.
fyrefly98: I know GRRM is on the "no" list, but the short story collections he's edited with Gardner Dozois might be appealing, since they've got a bunch of fantasy authors. I loved Songs of Love and Death, and their newest one is called Dangerous Women, which would probably have plenty of female characters!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor is amazing, and also seems like it might be up their alley. (Fri, 29 Nov 2013 09:51:47 -0500)
