This week, share your favourite female fantasy authors. :)

Hahaha preach!! 🙌


message 9: by Shae (new)

Shae | 372 comments 1. Robin Hobb - Happy to join the choir here, loved every page of The Fitz and The Fool Trilogy in particular.
2. Lois McMaster Bujold - Paladin of Souls is a comforting favourite.
3. J. V. Jones - Still sad that she never finished the Sword of Shadows series, read the first 4 books as an older teen/young adult and they made an impact as I've never forgotten about them :-)

Narilka | 2477 comments Robin Hobb
Anne Bishop
J. K. Rowling


message 11: by Soo (new)

Soo (silverlyn) | 3698 comments OO, this is hard. I decided to cut out the female classic authors that I love. The following in no particular order:

- Janny Wurts
- Michelle Sagara West
- Robin Hobb
- Lois McMaster Bujold

So tempted to write more but I'll leave it at 4. I tried to cut one out and I can't. LOL


message 12: by Melissa (new)

Melissa | 1256 comments I'm just choosing more recent authors I've read in order to narrow it down

1. Madeleine Miller
2. Becky Chambers
3. C.S. Pacat
3. Martha Wells

There. Three.

And okay okay, apparently I really need to get around to reading Robin Hobb. I've had Assassin's Apprentice on my shelf for faaaar too long. (Haha, cause it's like, the Farseer Trilogy?)

Lois McMaster Bujold has been high in my list for a while now. I keep wanting to pick up Curse of Chalion, just knowing I'll love it, and then get torn away. I really ought to try to set up a BR.


message 13: by Sha (new)

Sha | 1522 comments Lois Bujold, Naomi Novik, Martha Wells and also a ton of others whose names escape me run but are also excellent I just picked the three authors I like best from the previous answers :D


message 15: by Siobhan (new)

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7589 comments 4 is the new 3 😂


message 16: by Bill (new)

Bill | 2130 comments If we get a 4th I’m throwing Jacqueline Carey on my list.


message 17: by Soo (new)

Soo (silverlyn) | 3698 comments We can't count. LOL


message 18: by Virginie (last edited May 25, 2020 06:42AM) (new)

Virginie | 5795 comments Well, if we're going for four now, I'm adding Robin Hobb to my list! (and Janny Wurts)

Obeying rules has never been high on my list, no matter how many digits we're allowing, of things to do. :)

Choko (chokog) | 5102 comments - Janny Wurts
- Ilona Andrews
- Ann Rice
- Anne Bishop

There are so many others, and also those I really love what I have read from them, but it is a very small sample, like Robin Hobb... And to my shame, I have not gotten to reading anything by Lois McMaster Bujold...


message 26: by Tammie (new)

Tammie | 3893 comments Patricia Briggs
Juliett Marillier

Which ones did you read? I know Heart's Blood was one of them.


message 30: by Chris (new)

Chris  (haughtc) | 1630 comments Carrie Vaughn
V.E. Schwab
Seanan McGuire

Didn't see these 3 ladies listed...

Think Heart’s Blood might have been last year after you recommend it. This year I read the Wildwood Dancing duology and Beautiful which is a audible exclusive I was lucky enough to grab in a sale. Thoroughly enjoyed all 3.

I was going to do her Shadowfell series after seeing it on hoopla but they never made an audiobook for the third one so might wait on it.

Victoria Schwab was one I was apologising in my head to ! <3


message 36: by Eva (new)

Eva | 61 comments I'm only counting contemporary authors who are still alive:

Eleanor Catton
Patricia Briggs
Amy Tan and Lois McMaster Bujold (it's a tie, what can I do)

But the female half of the "Ilona Andrews" duo, JK Rowling and Margaret Weis are also very dear to my heart and have created such wonderful worlds to lose oneself in.


message 37: by Shaitarn (new)

Shaitarn | 1865 comments There are loads, but the top three/four for me:

Robin Hobb
Ursula Le Guin
Barbara Hambly
C J Cherryh


message 38: by Alexandra (new)

Alexandra Wilson (wilsonal87929) | 5 comments I haven't read many of the authors mentioned, so I'm interested in checking out some of them! Here are my current favorite female authors:
1. Leigh Bardugo
2. Martha Wells
3. V.E. Schwab
And if I had to choose a fourth, I'd choose Rainbow Rowell. I feel like she is tied with V.E. Schwab, though. But all of their writing is my favorite for varying reasons, so I can't pick just one hahaha


message 39: by Siobhan (new)

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7589 comments It's hard choosing just three, right?! 😅
