Childfree-Friendly Fiction

This list is for those of us who prefer to avoid books in which pregnancy or children are a prominent theme or motivation of the main characters. Existing CF book lists focus primarily on nonfiction, while this one will include all genres of fiction.

message 1: by Amber (new)

Amber I haven't read many of the books on this list, and I'm wondering how many of these feature protagonists who are openly CF versus just being sort of accidentally CF? I.e., there are lots of books I'd call "accidentally CF" because the subject just doesn't come up - for example, the majority of fantasy, which tends to be coming-of-age stories featuring young people who just aren't old enough to settle down yet.


message 2: by Amber (new)

Amber Any thoughts on how we feel about adding books with child protagonists? If people think those are fair game, I'd like to add Paper Moon, which is an awesome book featuring 11-year-old Addie Pray, who joins up with a grifter who plays her dad, and they con their way across Depression-era Alabama.
