Reading Women Challenge

This year, I can going to attempt to follow this challenge by the Reading Women Podcast.

This will be a good way to both find new books that I was not aware of, and add to my female author repertoire. Of course, I might read additional books outside of this challenge, but I will try to find something that fits for each category.
