FemPowerAThon is a readathon which is focused on female empowerment and so the challenges are focused around that. The readathon spans 19th March-26th March.  Twitter


  1. woman in a position of power
  2. a woman of color
  3. a LGBT+ woman
  4. prominent sister relationship
  5. a woman with a mental illness
  6. an own voices novel
  7. read a book about a woman not set in the western world
  8. a graphic novel by a female author

So many challenges, I might be doubling up on them as I’m still travelling so I can’t read nine books in a week (though it would be fun to try!).

The Perilous Life of Jade YeoThe Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1)







The Terracotta BrideAngelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1)








Black Butler, Volume 01The Alchemists of Loom (Loom Saga, #1)








One thing I discovered when searching for these books is that I have a lot of books with female main characters, a lot of books with LGBTQ+ male characters but not many with female LGBTQ+ which I haven’t read already. I also do not have a book for challenge #5 so I’ll have to do some more scrolling through the books on my Kindle (I’m trying not to buy any new books for this challenge).


The Perilous Life of Jade Yeo – Woman of Colour, Own Voices

The Girl of Fire and Thorns – Woman of Colour, Woman in Position of Power, Book Not Set in Western World

The Terracotta Bride – Woman of Colour, Book Not Set In Western World, Own Voices, Woman In Position of Power

Angelfall  – Prominent Sister Relationship

Black Butler Volume #1 – Graphic Novel by Female Author

The Alchemists of Loom – LGBTQ+ female main character

This TBR might change (especially when I add another book on for the last challenge) but at the moment this is it!
