To celebrate International Women's Day, I put together a list of literary women who made a mark through their work, imagination, creativity, and dedication to the written word.

What is so thrilling about Tahir's writing is that everything, and I mean everything plays a role - every tidbit of information scattered either in Ember or in Torch, every simple line a character says. Nothing is left unused. And it makes the writing as sharp as a Teluman sword.
Sabaa Tahir has a kehanni's skill in weaving a story. An Ember in the Ashes writhes with emotion, tension, and a world so built out, scenes are vivid.
A new year has arrived, and a new year means new books! 2020 anticipated reads includes sequels to books read and loved in 2019 and books barely heard of before.
