This post is part of a series on reading women 2019 hosted by Lonely Cryptid Media’s Narrative Designer, Dan Michael Fielding.
It’s no secret that this challenge was inspired by the fabulous work being done by Kendra and Autumn over at ReadingWomenPodcast.com. Each year they host their own reading women challenge.
For this prompt I wanted to highlight their Reading Women Award. Each year they celebrate outstanding books written by or about women. The award winners and shortlisted books also function as a great resource to find new and wonderful books to read.
I recommend you click through a peruse their shortlisted books. They have categories for both fiction and non-fiction, so there should be something for everybody.
I’ve decided to read a book that appeared on their 2018 fiction shortlist: Terra Nullius by Claire G. Coleman.
If you’ve been following along with previous challenge prompts you’ll note this book could also fill the independent press prompt, as well as the upcoming book by an Indigenous, Aboriginal, or Native author prompt. Coleman is an Aboriginal Australian writing a science fictional take on Australian colonization.
I’m eager to read the book! Which of the Reading Women Award books looks most interesting to you? Let me know down below!
