TAG #7 : The FemmeFriday Book Tag

Hello guys !

Today’s tag is part of a meme, which is #FemmeFriday created by Vicky @ BooksAndStripes which you can read more about on the post she dedicated to it here. I think this meme is a great way to showcase everything female related and I salute her for the initiative *Big fluffy hugs*.

I was tagged to do this amazing tag by the lovely Astra @ AStrangersGuidetoNovels , if you don’t know her, go check out her blog, it is really cool and she always keeps it interesting. Go. Move. (Don’t forget to come back though haha! )

The rules:

  • Post this tag post on a Friday.
  • Tag three to five other bloggers (female or male, doesn’t matter).
  • Post the Tag image with this.
  • If you’re going to start doing the meme on your blog please link back so there’s a pingback in the comments section for others to check out.
P.s : The covers are direct links to the books on Goodreads.
Let’s dive in :

1. What’s the ratio of female:male authors in your shelves? You don’t have to give an exact amount, just approximately.

I  read a lot more from female authors than male which doesn’t surprise me at all because I was well aware of it. I would say that 70% on my shelves are women and the other 30% are men.

2. Do you have any preconceived notions about female authors? EG: they only write YA or chicklit?

No. Nop. Niet. Non. Nada.

3. Who’s your favourite female author?

I won’t say J. K. Rowling because that’s an obvious one. Duh. Come to think of it, since I read a lot from women, this is a really hard one. I would probably go with Rainbow Rowell because I think that her writing is simple but yet beautiful and her characters are the most relatable I’ve ever read.

4. Have you ever read a comic or a graphic novel written and illustrated by a woman?

I don’t read comics. Sorry ? I really like them, it’s just that I couldn’t find any that are interesting enough where I live, but I think, starting June or something, I’ll start buying digital copies.

5. Have you read any LGBT books?

Benjamin Alire Sàenz - Aristole and Dante discover the Secret of the Universe

Yes, but only one, really. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secret of the Universe. It was cute and all but I didn’t get invested in the characters which was a bummer as I had heard amazing things about it.

6. Have you read a book by a female author of colour?

Eeem. Let me think. *Goes to GoodReads for the save*. Yeah, I thought so. No, I have never read a book by a female author of colour. I should though. It’s just that I don’t pay attention to who or how the writer is when I’m buying a book unless I already know who it is.

7. Have you read any feminist non fiction books?

Malala - I am Malala

I think that I am Malala is a feminist non fiction book , right? She stands up for girls’ rights for education in Pakistan and all. That girl is a real badass.

8. Who is your favourite female character? Someone strong and role model-ish.

I would say Hermione, but as Astra said, it is a universal answer for this question, because she rocks. Okay ? Other than her, one that came to me as soon as I read the question is Yael from Wolf by Wolf. She is one of the best female characters I ever read, so strong and independant.

9. Is there a really popular female author that you haven’t read at all?

Oh ! There are plenty ! I’m still catching up on the popular books and authors. To name a few : Alexandra Bracken, Colleen Hoover, Sarah Dessen, Sarah J. Maas, V.E Schwaab etc… I’m getting to them though, I swear.

10. Is there a popular non feminist book that you really enjoyed?

Mmm, I don’t know, maybe? I can’t recall any from the top of my head right now.

I tag :

Càtia @ TheGirlWhoReadTooMuch

Felicia @ FellForBooks

Marie @ DrizzleAndHurricaneBooks

Lauren @ WonderlessReviews

Ps: If you’ve already done it or you just don’t feel like it, I’m sorry just ignore my tag hah.


That’s it until next time.

If you did the tag, go ahead and leave the link in the comments so that I can check it out.

Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.

  1. Ahh, yay, thanks for the tag! I’m excited to do this one! I understand what you mean about the author thing. I never really pay attention to that either. Also, If you decide to start getting digital comics/graphic novels and need any recs then I’m happy to throw some your way!

  2. Fluffy hugs! I’m going to use that term everywhere.
    I’m glad you didn’t like Aristotle And Dante either. I couldn’t care about it. I just couldn’t. No matter how much I tried. Also you’ll love Schwab. She’s awesome. Thanks for doing the tag!!!
