This maybe slightly ‘off-topic’ with regard to AR but can there really be ‘female’ and ‘male’ books?

If there are, then when and who decided that AR’s are for ‘boys’ (though some of the early editions reviews show that they were clearly thought of as that.)

To the general question, I just read novels that look interesting from their blurb, if when I start reading them I don’t enjoy them or like them I just stop. Quickly thinking about it most of my favourite novels are by women and so are my favourite writers, at a very quick estimate I would say 70%.

Not that it matters, it doesn’t even come down to the quality. Sometimes I read ‘rubbish’ as a form or relaxation or escape.
