I was tagged by the always lovely Lauren @ Wonderless Reviews.
I’ve been really excited about this post all week and now I finally get to post it!
What’s the ratio of female:male authors in your shelves? You don’t have to give an exact amount, just approximately.
I actually don’t read very many male authors so I’d say maybe 90% of my physical books are female authors.
Do you have any preconceived notions about female authors? E.g.: they only write YA or chicklit?
Not any negative ones. Most of my favourite authors are female. I find that they write some of the best books. I don’t understand why female authors, or any professional/successful females, get a bad rap.
Who’s your favourite female author?
Have you ever read a comic or a graphic novel written and illustrated by a woman?
Anyone who knows me knows that the Marvel cinematic universe owns my ass. So I really want to get into comics but there are so many universes I wouldn’t even know where to start. I have been meaning to read Captain Marvel by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson for a few years now though.
Have you read any LGBT books?
I love love LOVED Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. The Song of Achilles tore my heart to shreds. And of course, I can’t forget Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe.
Have you read a book by a female author of colour?
I love Jenny Han! Her To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before duology is one of my favourites and I quite enjoyed the Summer trilogy. I’m pretty bad at paying attention to authors so it’s possible that I’ve read more female authors of colour than I know.
Have you read any feminist non fiction books?
Who is your favourite female character? Someone strong and role model-ish.
I’m gonna do it again and mention Summer Skin by Kirsty Eagar. Jess Gordon is a genuinely funny character who takes no shit. She’s smart and smart mouthed. And she’s a feminist!
Is there a really popular female author that you haven’t read at all?
Colleen Hoover and V.E. Schwab. I want to read both of their works though.
Is there a popular non feminist book that you really enjoyed?
Not any that I can think of. I probably wouldn’t read a book if it had non-feminist views just because that would go against my own values. I did like Pierce Brown’s Red Rising but there were a few elements I wasn’t too keen on that could be interpreted as anti feminist/sexist. I mentioned it in my review which you can read here.
