Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

2024 Women of Genre Fiction Reading Challenge

2024 Women of Genre Fiction Reading Challenge

For the 12th year running it's the Women of Genre Fiction Reading Challenge!

This challenge is to read 6, 12, 24, or 48 new-to-you women authors in 12 months. For the 24 and 48 book levels you only have to read 12 new-to-you women authors. For the other slots you can pick previously read women authors or read multiple books by the same author etc. This will allow you to include series in your challenge!

As always, at least one of your author choices should be totally random. The review requirements are suggested but not required.

We have an All Women Authors page so you can easily find some new authors to read as well as several book lists so you'll never run out of options. Read on!
