Women's Reading Challenge

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).


  1. This sounds like a great challenge, since I have been working on raising my consciousness in reading more women writers (especially mystery writers). However, I over-challenged myself last year, so don't know if I want to formally join this challenge.

    1. Hi Tracy, I know how you feel! I was definitely over challenged this year too....cutting way back for 2014.

  2. I have both Nunn and Marklund on my TBR shelf, and I've read good things. Good luck!

  3. Hi Deb and welcome to the Women Challenge!
    I hope you have fun reaching your goal!
