Reading Women Writers 2017

I’ve always believed that women are somehow more powerful storytellers than men. Maybe that is why I prefer reading books by women than men. So I have decided to read perhaps more women writers than men in 2017. Let’s see how that works out. For now, it is going to be a sincere attempt, no matter what the genre.

So here goes:
