March 10: National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day – Choose 5 books that feature strong female leads.

I wanted to avoid the choices that I thought were a bit obvious for this week (Hermione, Annabeth, Katniss etc), and I also wanted to avoid the action-hero type of strong woman so this list took me a bit longer to think of.

Josh Lanyon

I found this week really tough, because although I have tons of fave authors with lots of books (Terry Pratchett, Jim Butcher etc) I didn’t want my five to all come from the same one or two series.  I’ve decided to pick Josh Lanyon, who’s a bit of a comfort-read/ guilty pleasure author.
