21st Century Literature by Women: A Reading List

Last week, I asked for help putting together a list of women writers and their works from the 21st century. While some people got stuck in the 20th century for their recommendations, I was able to compile quite a list to share with my students. And now, I'm going to share it with you. It's a very long list, but it is by no means complete. It is, however, an excellent starting point. Add your recommendations in the comments.
