Fight like a YA girl – book tag!

I was tagged by Krysti at YA and Wine (who also happens to be the creator of this fabulous tag!) and haven’t stopped thinking of it since! Strong kick ass girls are always a big motivator for me in books. I grew up watching Disney movies but never seemed to relate to the princesses. It was always the girls who took matters into their own hands, fought with their hands or their minds, and showed incredible amounts of strength that I admired.

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

Manon – Throne of Glass
Helene – An Ember in the Ashes

GIRLS WHO FIGHT WITH THEIR MIND

Art3mis – Ready Player One
Cress – The Lunar Chronicles

GIRLS WHO FIGHT WITH THEIR HEART

Feyre – A Court of Thorns and Roses
Shazi – The Wrath and the Dawn

GIRLS WHO ARE TRAINED FIGHTERS

Celeana Sardothian – Throne of Glass
Isabelle Lightwood – City of Bones

STRONG GIRLS OF COLOUR

Starr Carter – The Hate you Give
Sarai – Strange the Dreamer

GIRLS WHO FIGHT TO SURVIVE

Eden – The Sandcastle Empire
Yeva – Hunted

GIRLS WHO ARE WEAPONS MASTERS

Kady – Illuminae
Katniss Everdeen – The Hunger Games

GIRLS WHO DON’T CONFORM TO GENDER ROLES

Mariko – Flame in the Mist

Flame in the mist

GIRLS WITH KICK ASS MAGICAL POWERS

Celia – The Night Circus
Hermoine – Harry Potter

STRONG GIRLS IN CONTEMPORARY NOVELS

I’ve seen this tag all over the place lately so I don’t know who to tag and who’s already done it. So if this tag looks like fun then, TAG! You’re it!

Until next time, happy reading!

      1. I feel like it happens a lot when I use reader on my phone, but on my laptop it’s fine. Most likely it’s just user error though honestly. 😉
