NO this is not just a challenge for women who read :) but a focus on women authors.
Bev Hankins at My Reader's Block just did a post that alerted me to the Women's Reading Challenge at Valentina's website. The site is not just for mystery authors but since I've been "collecting" female mystery writers over the past year, that will be my focus. That said, I'm going to aim low and try the Baby Girl challenge.
My three favourite female murder mystery writers are Malla Nunn (South Africa), Kate Atkinson (England) and Liza Marklund (Sweden).
