Note: In 2016 all the books I read will be written by women, about women (either fictional or non-).
Inferno: A Poet’s Novel by Eileen Myles
Sisters in Law: How Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg Went to the Supreme Court and Changed the World by Linda Hirshman
Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy: Four Women Undercover in the Civil War by Karen Abbott
Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor (I started reading this before 2015 ended so it’s grandfathered in here. At least the two main characters are women, even if it was written by men.)
I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb
I Can Barely Take Care of Myself: Tales from a Happy Life Without Kids by Jen Kirkman
