The female authors aren’t hiding...

Why is this still a thing? I just saw yet another article trying to recommend a few female authors as though they’re some rare species. The suggestions turned out to be just as boring as every other list: Rowling, Austen, Rowling, Bronte, Rowling.

I don’t know why people keep struggling to come up with 5 amazing female authors (or even making these lists. Like whyyy). So let me now walk over to my bookshelf and rattle off some names of my favorite modern female authors… (also, enjoy my attempt to break my endless “YA fantasy” books into groups).

Also, I have never taken a photo from this angle before! Mostly because my bed isn’t anything special… But you want to know a secret?

I hung up the photos and lights right before I took this picture LOL! Actually, this photo is exactly why I made my bed area pretty hahahaha.

That’s one of the many secrets of a bookstagrammer😂. I don’t really decorate a certain way unless it will look good in photos. And sometimes, a set up is just for show! Say for example a cup of coffee is in the photo - Of course I will end up drinking it (because I’m so obsessed), BUT 50% of the time I made that cup of coffee specifically for a photo lol.

Hmm maybe I will do a blog post or youtube video about this in the future 😏
