So in doing this goal, I am both avoiding reading reading another book by female authors I've already read and also deliberately favouring genres and subjects I don't habitually visit.

These are all on my "Want to Read" list at GoodReads but they're possibly outliers compared to my usual diet of light mysteries, music memoirs and criticism and music nonfiction in general, chick lit and Young Adult dystopian fiction.

The Raven Boys - Maggie Steifvater

All the way through reading this book I felt as if Stiefvater had continuously thought "What would Imre like?" This book was perfect for me, and I'm so glad I decided to buy the series.
