Thanks so much for calling me out on this

I wish I’d gotten around to responding when this post was getting it’s peak traffic, but I did want to follow up with you for one simple reason:

You’re right.

This post was written on the go. I knocked it out with my phone and pulled up the first books which came to my mind.

It wasn’t until I started skimming the responses that I realized — nearly all of my book list was penned by males. Almost all of those males were white.

That’s scary to me.

Holly (or anyone else who stumbles across this), I would love to hear any of the recommendations you have of women authors in general. It’s clear I need to be a little better rounded with my reading.

Again, thanks for the response.
