Want to escape from the ordinary? I have 12 female-driven sci-fi and fantasy novels you'll love to read, so be sure to add these new and newish adventures to your TBR, A. I have loved science fiction and fantasy stories ever since I was a child, and geeking out over great books is one of my favorite pastimes. I seize on every chance I get to recommend a speculative fiction read to a friend, so writing up lists like this one is exactly what I live for. The 12 sci-fi and fantasy novels on the list below are all recent releases, or are the first installments in series with new releases coming this year, so you'll have plenty to read and discuss with other fans of speculative fiction. No matter what kind of science fiction or fantasy story you're looking for, you'll find something to tickle your reading tastebuds here.
Some women want fantasy books that are different from those for men. Now, I know many women read the same fantasy as the boys and are fine with that, but for the women who want fantasy with strong female protagonists, fantasy that's not all about some hunk whose mission is to slay dark lords and sleep with as many women as possible while doing so, this list is for you. Why have I created this list? I've heard many women complaining most fantasy novels are 'boy' fantasy. Sounds familiar? You know, fantasy books with male protagonists, pathetic females whose sole role is only to be saved by the hero, and to be part of a ham-fisted romance. If you like that sort of book as a woman, that's fine.
I read more fantasy, so for the purposes of this list, YA fantasy has been subdivided. Urban fantasy has also been subdivided, since it can be harder to find female characters in the more traditional epic fantasy. Or this list of must read female SFF authors. Very cool! Try this new saga with Neath A.
