Back in 2011 I was part of two really awesome book clubs focused on scifi/fantasy written by women. They covered a wide range of authors and subgenres, and I really enjoyed being a part of them. They’re both defunct now, unfortunately, and I haven’t found been able to find something to fill the gap. So I decided to start a book club myself!
So: #SFFWomen, a book club centered around scifi/fantasy books written by women. Anyone can join at any time, and you don’t have to read all the books if you don’t want to. I’ll be hosting discussions on Twitter and on my blog each month, and everyone’s welcome to to join in.
January’s book is Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach, the first book in a space opera trilogy which recently concluded.
Devi Morris isn’t your average mercenary. She has plans. Big ones. And a ton of ambition. It’s a combination that’s going to get her killed one day – but not just yet.
That is, until she just gets a job on a tiny trade ship with a nasty reputation for surprises. The Glorious Fool isn’t misnamed: it likes to get into trouble, so much so that one year of security work under its captain is equal to five years everywhere else. With odds like that, Devi knows she’s found the perfect way to get the jump on the next part of her Plan. But the Fool doesn’t give up its secrets without a fight, and one year on this ship might be more than even Devi can handle.
The Twitter discussion will be on January 25th (at 4pm PST/7pm EST), and the blog discussion will be later that week. AND the publisher has kindly provided a complete set of the series for a giveaway! Yay!
The complete list of books for the year can be found here, as well as links to suggested reading lists and such.
Come read some awesome books with me! Join the #SFFWomen Book Club today.
