Ratio Female/Male authors.

Most years the books I read seem to be predominantly written by female authors but I've noticed that so far this year I've read more male authors than female.  I wonder if this is going to be a trend that continues for the whole year.

Read in January, 4 male and one female.

Read in 2013, 78 female and 23 male.

Read in 2012, 50 female and 24 male with one book being jointly written by both sexes.


  1. You should check out Vadim Babenko, A friend suggested I read his book A Simple Soul, it was amazing. I didn't know men could write such a great romantic suspense. I now find myself looking for more male authors writing in that genre as I think they don't follow the predictable themes as many of the female authors do.

    1. Thankyou for taking the time to reply to this post. I'll have a look at him and his books and let you know how I get on. :-)
