200 Incredible Books by Women

200 books written by women. These books range from fiction, to memoir, to essay, to poetry and more. I believe this list to contain the best of the best. Obviously many more are not included. Also I wanted to display the high career points of a few chosen writers, such as Pat Barker, Toni Morrison, J.K. Rowling, Iris Murdoch, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Margaret Atwood, Angela Carter, Joan Didion, Jane Austen, and George Eliot.
