I submitted a request to the Goodreads Librarians Group to have Dragon Bones by Patricia Briggs removed from this list.


message 3: by JenniferD (new)

JenniferD removed Casanegra, as Blair Underwood is not, as is the focus of this list, a woman. ;)


message 4: by Carol (new)

Carol Paco Ignacio Taibo II is a fine author, but male. Please remove Mexico Coty Noir from this list.
