Fatimah good list! :D

message 11: by Bev (new)

Bev There are books on here that are just plain good fiction. I don't really get how some of them are "women's fiction." Harry Potter is "women's"?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You add books to the list at the top of the list, at the tab next to "all votes."

I find I really do not know what qualifies as "women's fiction," so I find it hard to vote on this one.


message 13: by Laura (new)

Laura According to Wiki, the definition of women's fiction is given below:

Women's fiction

Great idea for a list! I have a lot of thinking to do though. I'd rather make my own list first, before relying on the books already on this one, though I'm sure I'll add some of them.


message 15: by Laura (new)

Laura But perhaps this list must be "cleaned" according to the above definition.


message 16: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Vegan Laura wrote: "But perhaps this list must be "cleaned" according to the above definition."

Because these lists are crowd sourced, a lot of books that don't fit end up on them, even the ones without subjective guidelines.


message 17: by Laura (new)

Laura Agreed.


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

SINCE WHEN ARE THE ABOVE BOOKS 'WOMEN'S FICTION'? A LOT OF MEN, INCLUDING MYSELF, HAVE READ MANY BOOKS ON THIS LIST. STOP WITH THE REVERSE DISCRIMINATION.


message 19: by Patricia (new)

Patricia Is there a way you can make the lists into a printable list with just text for out reference? Love lists and love going through them to see how many I have read and then finish the list! :)

You may choose to print and then save as pdf file.

Lobstergirl Some books here which are not fiction...I removed a few, but I'm sure there are more.

I've removed The Diary of a Young Girl, as it is not fiction. (I came across it twice, actually, on #23 and #854, so I had the system check for duplicates as well).


message 23: by Booklovinglady (last edited May 07, 2016 05:46AM) (new)

Booklovinglady To me, "Women's Fiction" still is first and foremost fiction written by women, no matter what Wikipedia might say on the subject... :-)
