I discovered, about three years or so ago, that most of the authors I loved were male. Besides the occasional Jeanette Winterson and Jayne Anne Phillips, the skew was so heavily one way that I was obviously missing out on so much great literature. So I decided to make a conscious effort to fix that. And now I have a list of five female authors to go with the list of female male authors whose works I will read forever. I highly recommend all of these books and am excited to see where these authors will go next.

1) Helene Wecker- The Golem and the Jinni

2) Monica Byrne- The Girl in the Road

3) Emily St. John Mandel- Station Eleven

4) Nalo Hopkinson- The Salt Roads

5) Tea Obreht- The Tiger’s Wife
