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聽so this list took me a bit longer to think of.

Denna & Mare – Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst
Binti – Binti by Nnedi Okorafor
Jane Grey – My Lady Jane (The Lady Janies #1) by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton & Jodi Meadows

February 24: Author Appreciation! Pick 1 author you love and then choose 5 of their books to feature OR choose 5 authors and 1 of your favorite books from them! It’s up to you! 馃檪

Josh Lanyon

I found this week really tough, because although I have tons of fave authors with lots of books (Terry Pratchett,聽Jim Butcher etc)聽I didn’t want聽my five to all come聽from the same one or two series.聽聽I’ve decided to pick Josh Lanyon, who’s a bit of a comfort-read/ guilty pleasure author. Most of her books have the same core elements – a m/m romance and a mystery – but there’s usually enough differences or quirks to make each one interesting.
