So, as a women’s day special I decided to talk about female authors I love and am in awe of. This wasn’t a very easy task as I don’t really read books by a lot of male authors, and even if I do the books are usually standalones (Exception: Rick Riordan). So, without further ado, let’s get started!

1. Agatha Christie

Well, how could I not mention the Queen of Crime in this post?! She is one of my favourite authors and I am in awe of her plot twists and well, her genius. I enjoy reading her novels so much, even if some are over a hundred years old!!

2. Karen M. McManus

Ah, where do I even start?

When I first read Karen M. McManus’ books, I was astounded by how uncanny the resemblance between her and Agatha Christie’s books was. Sure, the writing style wasn’t exactly the same, but the plot twists and the story telling was rather similar. I can say with conviction that she might be able to take the crown of The Queen of Crime from Agatha Christie.

3. Kasie West

Now, a lot of you must be wondering what a teen romance novel author is doing on this list. Well, I love the simplicity of Kasie West’s novels. I love how not-out-of-the-blue they are and how relaxing they are. This is not what all teen romance authors are able to achieve and I admire that.

4. Sarah J. Maas

Okay, so well, the reason I am in awe of her, is her capability to write such long books and series. I mean have you seen Throne of Glass?! It’s seven books long (excluding Assassin’s Blade) and all the books are super long too! Like Kingdom of Ash is 900+ pages. It’s just…. amazing.

5. Jojo Moyes

So, this is an author I do not talk a lot about on my blog. The reason is that I have read only one book. But that book destroyed me to my core. I was so close to tears, and I rarely cry over books. So, yes, I was shooketh. Well, the book’s name is Me Before You. And I love the book.

So, that’s all for today people!!! A very happy Women’s Day once again! I hope that you celebrate it in your own ways and give yourself a treat!

P.S.- Is anyone feeling like we are in the middle of March already, even though we are just a week into it? I am definitely feeling like that.

  1. This is such a wonderful article! Agatha Christie’s books have been on my TBR for ages. I think Enid Blyton’s a great author for children’s books. I mean, there are simply hundreds of her books around! I loved reading this post!

  4. This is a great post, Riddhi. Out of these 5 female authors, I have only read books by Agatha Christie. I will look out for books by the other authors mentioned. Thanks for the recommendation, and Happy Women’s Day!

  5. I loved how your started your list with Agatha Christie ❤ For me it would have to be Jane Austen – I have so much love and respect for her and I think I'll always be in awe of her. Especially to write characters like Lizzy Bennet in a time like the 1800s is by itself awe-inspiring.

      1. Oh that is a really good book! I mean I don’t think any of Jane Austen’s books are bad, Pride & Prejudice is probably the most popular, but Mansfield Park is not too bad. You may find a lot of average reviews for it, but I think that is mainly because the protagonist in Mansfield Park has been written differently than her other books. Still a good book though 🙂

  6. I loved this Riddhi!! Specially because you included authors from many genres. And I completely agree with what you said about Kasie West! Her novels are so… normal I guess I could say. But they’re still very well done and beautiful.

    Great post ☺️

  7. I really enjoy Sarah Dessen. I think she is technically a YA writer, but she writes of romance, and trauma, and overcoming tragedy. You can’t help but love her characters and all the books make a small nod to another.

    I’m always excited to see a new one of her books out 🥰
