Lei from Girls of Paper and Fire is the ultimate disobedient, fierce, and patriarchy-smashing protagonist. I just got started with the sequel (Girls of Storm and Shadow), and though it’s not quite as potent as book 1, I’d forgotten how much I loved her and Wren.
Alouette from Sky Without Stars is a character that I always love to see in a female protagonist–daring and determined, but also incredibly intelligent, and VERY bookish!
One of the perspectives that I enjoyed the most of Catherine in The Smoke Thieves, and her later struggle (and GREAT successes) of ascending to the throne as Queen of Brigant.
The prose in Wild Beauty was one of the elements that most stood out to me in the book, as flowery as the gardens of La Pradera.
Although this was only a three-star read for me, Sky in the Deep was what immediately came to mind. Eelyn was most definitely a Wonder Woman-ish character, in an almost Viking setting.
Ooh, boy, I’ve got a lot to choose from…
A Conspiracy of Stars stands out so much in the YA sci-fi genre, with its spectacular world-building and memorable writing. WHERE. IS. BOOK. THREE.
(Heeeeey, we learned about her in my bio class not long ago!)
Chilling and masterfully written, it honestly saddens me how little recognition Other Words for Smoke (and anything by Sarah Maria Griffin, really) has gotten.
Another vastly underrated novel, Everything Grows is a beautiful and deeply relatable book about exploring one’s sexuality.
I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again: The Poet X deserves every ounce of hype that it has received.
Sally Ride has been one of my personal heroes ever since I did a project on her in 8th grade. The first American woman in space and an LGBTQ+ icon, she is continually one of my biggest inspirations. 💗
With its tackling of many issues that plague our modern society today, This Time Will be Different inspires me to not just look at the big picture, but to look within local communities to remedy these ills.
I tag anyone who’d like to participate during this lovely Women’s History Month!
That’s it for this post! Have a wonderful day, and take care of yourselves!

Thank you so much for doing this tag!! I loved all your answers to these questions, and I’m so happy that you chose Sally Ride for the last one, since I almost included her in the tag 😀 I completely agree that Lei from GoPaF is AMAZING and that The Poet X deserves every bit of praise that it has received.
