Memery

Remember the 20 top geek novels thing? Well, here's the 20 top geek novels written by women.

Bold I've read - sadly few, this time.

The Earthsea Trilogy - Ursula Le Guin
Ash - Mary Gentle (I've read the first two, and am planning to get the third as soon as I can.)
Cyteen - CJ Cherryh
Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone - JK Rowling
The Warrior's Apprentice - Lois McMaster Bujold
Nylon Angel - Marianne de Pierres
The Sparrow - Mary Doria Russell
Slow River - Nicola Griffith
1610: A Sundial in the Grave - Mary Gentle
Deep Secret - Diana Wynne Jones
Dark Lord of Derkholm - Diana Wynne Jones

China Mountain Zhiang - Maureen McHugh
Magic for Beginners - Kelly Link
Wildseed - Octavia Butler
Oryx & Crake - Margaret Atwood (Well, the first half)
The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood
The Doomsday Book - Connie Willis
Dragonflight - Anne McCaffrey
Frankenstein - Mary Shelley
Tam Lin - Pamela Dean
The Lioness Quartet - Tamora Pierce


You scored as Willow. Willow. Smart. Resourceful. Understanding. Full of Self-Doubt. Shy. Unstable. Your live has mostly been about relying on your smarts. You parents mostly ignored you, so you had to learn to be resourceful. Magic came along as a boundless frontier that had a unique set of chalanges and rewards. The mystical is one of most compelling things for you. Only love can surmount that. You emotions are a whirlwind of either strength or destruction. The combination of Brains, Magic & Overwhelming Emotions makes you a dangerous, but very interesting person.

W00t! Willow and Giles. So me.


And a quizzy (for anyone who's not also reading userpicks, anyway) - what's my icon all about, then?

The Sparrow is absolutely wonderful. I ended up giving about half a dozen copies to people that Christmas.

A friend of mine's in a book group (she calls it the lesbian book group, because they're all women and they only choose books by women) and she recommended it to them. Went down a storm, apparently. It absolutely deserved the awards it got.

I'd never even heard of it, but I'll have to look out for it.

Great icon - took ages to work it out though, as was a bit confused by the car and the strange looking bloke!
But where's Rudolf?

Yep, I'm presuming they're American things. Or something.

And I dunno...a picture of Nureyev in tights would be good!

I love all of the books in Bujold's Vorkosigan series. I've recommended them to 2 or 3 friends and they've loved them too.
