TBR: Female Fantasy

Hi guys, I hope you are all well. The other day I saw Ashleigh, over at Frolicthroughfiction, post about all the fantasy books she wants to read by female authors. Most of the fantasy books I read are by male authors so I wanted to share the books I want to read that are by women. I don’t really think about gender when I choose what books to read but I definitely want to read more books by women. Let’s get started.


  • The Missing of Clairdelune / Christelle Dabos
  • In Labyrinth of Drakes / Marie Brennan
  • The Mountain of Kept Memory / Rachel Neumeier

  • Wolfskin / Juliet Marillier
  • A Wizard of Earthsea / Ursula K. Le Guin
  • The Reindeer People / Megan Lindholm

  • The Deed of Paksenarrion / Elizabeth Moon
  • Sorcerer to the Crown / Zen Cho
  • The Thief / Megan Whalen Turner

That’s it for today. I would love to know your favourite fantasy books by female authors – I’d love any recommendations. Have you read any of these books? I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.

  1. Hobb and Marillier are two of my faves! And funnily enough I just picked up a copy of Wolfskin today. I hardly ever see Marillier’s books in the wild, so I was thrilled to find it and Foxmask at Oxfam! My lucky day indeed.

    I really need to continue the Lady Trent series. I read book one earlier this year and loved it!

    1. Yeah Hobb and Marillier are awesome. Ah nice it’s always great when you stumble on a book you’ve wanted. Yeah I’ve got the last two books in the Trent series to read. 🙂


  2. Something like 75-85% of of the SFF books I read are by female authors. I’m not sure how that’s happened, but I guess I just gravitate toward women authors. Two of my favorites not mentioned here are Carol Berg and Courtney Schafer. I’m also really keen on Kate Elliott. They all write epic fantasy. Hope you find some new authors to enjoy!

    1. Ah thanks I’ve read one book by Kate Elliot and enjoyed it but I haven’t heard of the other two. I’ll definitely check them out.
