1. What’s the ratio of female:male authors in your shelves? You don’t have to give an exact amount, just approximately.
Honestly, I have no clue! Print books: probably 70:30. Ebooks: 90:10. Honestly, I just read more female authors. There is nothing wrong with male authors (James Patterson is a huge favorite of mine), but for reasons unknown, I gravitate more towards female authors.
2. Do you have any preconceived notions about female authors? Ex: they only write YA or chick-lit?
If you would have asked me many years ago, I would have said YA and chick-lit. Now? I have no preconceived notions. Female authors write everything!
3. Who’s your favorite female author?
Sarah Dessen! Hands down in 1st place. Then Ellen Hopkins in 2nd. Finally Jude Deveraux (only her contemporary books) in 3rd.
4. Have you ever read a comic or a graphic novel written and illustrated by a woman?
I’m not really a huge fan of comics or graphic novels, so I don’t know.
5. Have you read any LGBT books?
Yes, I have. Right now, the only one that comes to mind is When We Were by Alexandra Diaz. You can find my review here. Although I didn’t really like the book, the reason was in no way towards the LGBT aspect.
6. Have you read a book by a female author of color?
Books? Not that I know of. Short stories? Yesss! One that comes to mind is How It Feels To Be Colored Me by Zora Neale Hurston.
7. Have you read any feminist Non fiction books?
Nonfiction books aren’t really my thing. So, I guess not…
8. Who is your favorite female character? Someone strong and role model-ish.
Oh my. Gabbi comes to mind from Are You Still There.
9. Is there a really popular female author that you haven’t read at all?
Yes. Yes. Yes. Jk Rowling. Suzanne Collins. Uh, the author of Divergent… There are quite a few. Not because they’re female authors, but because of the subject matter.
10. Is there a popular non feminist book that you really enjoyed?
There are so many. I don’t usually read feminist books to begin with, so I usually read outside of the feminist category.
… Everyone who has a birthday in May! (Happy belated birthday!)
