Fight Like A Girl Tag | YA Edition

No one tagged me, but I saw this and thought it would be fun to do! I am also all about strong females! If you do this leave me a link to your post in the comments.

THE RULES

  • Thank the person who tagged you.
  • Mention the creator Krysti at YA and Wine
  • Match at least one YA girl with each of the themes below.
  • Tag as many people as you like!
WARRIOR GIRLS

Alanna from Song of the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce. She pretends to be her brother and goes off to get trained as a page. She eventually makes it to a knight!

GIRLS WHO FIGHT WITH THEIR MIND

Denna from Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst. She is brilliant and is able to use her brain to her advantage.

GIRLS WHO FIGHT WITH THEIR HEART

Elisa from The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson. I think she is a very atypical heroine, but has so much compassion and heart.

GIRLS WHO ARE TRAINED FIGHTERS

Rose Hathaway from the Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead. Rose will always be one of my favorite female heroines and she has some awesome fighting moves.

STRONG GIRLS OF COLOR

Rue from the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. She gave her life for Katniss and became a symbol.

GIRLS WHO FIGHT TO SURVIVE

Rose from Garden of Thorns by Amber Mitchell. Rose does everything she could in order to survive because others gave their life so she could.

GIRLS WHO ARE WEAPONS MASTERS

Katniss from the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I mean the way she uses that bow would make me run.

GIRLS WHO DON’T CONFORM TO GENDER ROLES

This one is a little hard. I do not think I have read enough books to have an answer for this.

GIRLS WITH KICK-BUTT MAGICAL POWERS

Vin from Misborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. The whole magic system in this trilogy is so awesome and Vin does some great things with her powers.

STRONG GIRLS IN CONTEMPORARY NOVELS

Reagan from Open Road Summer by Emery Lord. I love her! She stands up for herself and takes care of herself even though she has been through some stuff.

SERIOUSLY FIERCE GIRLS

Kate Harker from This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab. Kate is such a kick ass female. She is also super sassy which I love.

Who are some of your favorite strong females?

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland | Book Tag

I first saw this on HardbackHoarder

♠ Alice : a quote from your favourite strong, female protagonist.

“Fire is catching and if we burn, you burn with us.”

Katniss Everdeen, Mockingjay

The White Rabbit: a book everyone has read that you were/are late to the party on.

Harry Potter Series, I still have to read 5-7

Down The Rabbit Hole: your favourite first book sentence.

“All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”              – Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Drink Me: your favourite thing to drink while reading (tea, coffee, other) 

Definitely coffee and sometimes hot chocolate, but I am a sucker for teavana tea

The Caterpillar: a character who gives good advice, and a character who needs it.

Whenever I think of good advice I think of Dumbledore. A character that needs advice is definitely Adrian Ivashkov

The Cheshire Cat: try and give a six word explanation of a book that confused you.

Modern fairy tale of childhood nostalgia – The Ocean At The End Of The Lane

The March Hare and Mad Hatter: a fictional friendship you wish you could join in on.

Locke Lamora and Jean from The Gentleman Bastard series

The Dormouse: a book that put you to sleep.

After Alice by Gregory Maguire

The Queen of Hearts: a book you would decree as compulsory reading.

There are so many. I have to say I would decree The Giver by Lois Lowry as a compulsory read.

The Mock Turtle:  a quote or passage from a book that made you cry.

“If I run or breathe too deep, the cheap stitches holding me together will snap, and all the stickiness inside will pour out and burn through the concrete.”
― Laurie Halse Anderson, Wintergirls

The Flowers: a pretty book cover.

The Walrus and The Carpenter: a character whose original appearance was deceptive.

I am not sure. I cannot think of anyone.

Unbirthdays: a book you would gladly read every day of the year.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol it never gets old for me

The White Knight: a character that everyone laughs at but who deserves better.

I cannot really think of one to answer this question either.

Let me know if you do this tag!

Stranger Things

I discovered that a book tag had been created by Nisha @ A Running Commentary based on this brilliant show. I saw this on Nut Free Nerd! I absolutely loved this show and thought it was the season to do this!

THE FIRST BOOK IN A SERIES THAT LEFT YOU INTRIGUED AND SLIGHTLY CONFUSED

17357347

THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN BY MEREDITH MCCARDLE

This is a book that when I read it, I absolutely loved it. It pulled me in with the action and time travel. I have to admit though it was a little confusing at times and kept me intrigued the whole time. I think it is about time I pick up the second book. theupside-down

A BOOK WITH A SETTING YOU WOULD NEVER WANT TO LIVE IN

The Handmaid's TaleTHE HANDMAID’S TALE BY MARGARET ATWOOD

The fact that this is a world in which many woman are oppressed makes for a setting in which I do not want to live in.

A BOOK YOU OWN THAT IS SOMEWHAT DAMAGED, BUT LOVED TO PIECES

450a319f8da0884ee0da7110.LTHE GIVER BY LOIS LOWRY

I have read this book so many times. It is not my favorite book, but one I truly adore. Each time I read it I discover something new, whether it be a different emotion or view point.

A TRILOGY YOU ALWAYS GO TO WHENEVER YOU NEED A PICK-ME-UP

THE SPLINTERED TRILOGY BY A.G.HOWARD

I absolutely love this story and the writing. I believe that each of the three books has something to offer and doesn’t have one that is bad. I have been thinking about how I need to reread this soon.

A BOOK WITH A TERRIFYING BEAST YOU WOULDN’T WANT TO FACE IN A DARK ALLEY

42899DARK LOVER BY J.R.WARD

The men in these book are ones I would not want to face alone in a dark alley. Although not all of them are mean or look like beast I am still fearful of them.

A BOOK WITH A VILLAIN WHO IS BOTH MANIPULATIVE AND DEDICATED

20821614YOU BY CAROLINE KEPNES

Joe is a very manipulative villain and never gives up on what he wants. Even when I thought he was done he came back with a vengeance.

A BOOK YOU DIDN’T EXPECT TO LOVE

Volition Amazon (1)VOLITION BY LILY PARADIS

I was a beta reader for this book and it sounded intriguing, but I am weird about contemporary and new adult so I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this book. I have now read this like a total of 3 times since I have received it.

A BOOK WITH A SETTING THAT’S JUST A LITTLE BIT STRANGE

18044277THE WALLS AROUND US BY NOVA REN SUMA

The setting of this book is a juvenile detention center that keeps jumping back and forth between the past and present.

Feel free to do this yourself if you loved this show as well! I tag everyone!

This or That Book Tag

“THE RULES:

Mention the creator of the tag (Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks).
Thank the blogger who tagged you!
Choose one of the options, you don’t have to tell the reasons why you chose that but you can also do them if you want to.
Tag 10 other people to do this tag to spread the love!”

I was tagged by Pore Over The Pages  to complete the This or That Book Tag. The original tag was created by Ayunda @ Tea and Paperbacks. As the title suggests, you choose one of two options, this or that. Here we go!

1. READING ON THE COUCH OR ON THE BED?

I love reading in my bed, but when I read in my bed that results in me falling asleep.

2. FEMALE OR MALE MAIN CHARACTER?

I do enjoy reading books with male main characters, but seeing as I am a female it is always so much better to have a female kicking some butt and being awesome!

3. SWEET OR SALTY SNACKS WHILE READING?

I have a HUGE sweet tooth!

4. TRILOGIES OR QUARTETS?

I have always found that that trilogies seem to have horrible middle book syndrome. I find that I enjoy quartets or longer series because I always want more.

5. FIRST PERSON OR THIRD PERSON POINT OF VIEW?

I cannot chose. There are different things about both that I really enjoy

6. READING AT NIGHT OR IN THE MORNING?

I like to sleep in. I am a night owl and have a hard time sleeping sometimes so the reading helps me sleep

7. LIBRARIES OR BOOKSTORES?

Libraries are awesome and I wish I utilized them more, but there is nothing better than walking around and looking at all the new books.

8. BOOKS THAT MAKE YOU LAUGH OR CRY?

I dont really laugh at books a lot. I find that books that can move me to tears it must be amazing

9. BLACK OR WHITE BOOK COVERS?

Black. White gets too dirty

10. CHARACTER OR PLOT DRIVEN?

Character development it everything. I mean it is important to have a moving plot but if the characters are flat then the story is ruined.

Tag, you’re it! If you want to complete this book tag, consider yourself tagged. Have fun and happy reading!
