Fight Like a YA Girl Tag

Thank you so much Mandy for tagging me for this super awesome, inspiring tag! When I first saw it, I really, really liked it. Different kinds of strength is an interesting topic to me that needs to be explored more (I even have my own Women’s Strength in Fiction Series) It’s really inspirational, makes you think more (about which characters go where) and celebrates different kinds of strength, not just one, which I think is really important.

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:

Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games, Isabelle Lightwood from The Mortal Instruments, Reyna from Heroes of Olympus:



GIRLS WHO FIGHT WITH THEIR MIND:

Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, Charlotte Holmes from A Study in Charlotte, Mattie Ross from True Grit, Abigail Rook from Jackaby, Mina Holmes from Stoker and Holmes:

GIRLS WHO FIGHT WITH THEIR HEART:

Liesel Meminger from The Book Thief, Risa Ward from Unwind, Audrey Rose Wadsworth from Stalking Jack the Ripper, Jenny Cavanaugh from Jackaby:


GIRLS WHO ARE TRAINED FIGHTERS:

Tris Prior from Divergent, Annabeth Chase from Percy Jackson, Emma Carstairs from The Dark Artifices:


STRONG GIRLS OF COLOR:

Hazel, Piper, and Reyna from Heroes of Olympus, Christina from The Dark Artifices, Naomi Misora from Death Note Another Note: The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases, Zia Rashid from The Kane Chronicles, Bronwyn Rojas from One of Us is Lying: 


GIRLS WHO FIGHT TO SURVIVE:

Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games,  Gemma and Lyra from Replica, Willa from Famous Last Words:



GIRLS WHO ARE WEAPONS MASTERS:

Thalia Grace from Percy Jackson, Evaline Stoker from Stoker and Holmes:


GIRLS WHO DON’T CONFORM TO GENDER ROLES:

A lot of the girls I’ve already mentioned fit here. Mattie Ross from True Grit barters and is more shrewd than most men, and Cassandra Clare even said that she switched gender roles with Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn. 

GIRLS WITH KICK-BUTT MAGICAL POWERS:

Tessa Gray from The Infernal Devices, The women from Harry Potter, and most of the girls from Percy Jackson:



STRONG GIRLS IN CONTEMPORARY NOVELS:

Hazel from The Fault in Our Stars, Sam Kingston from Before I Fall:



SERIOUSLY FIERCE GIRLS:

Most of the warriors or physically strong female characters belong here. I have a hard time distinguishing a lot of differences between those types, and I feel like “seriously fierce” matches most, if not all of them.

MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK WITH A STRONG LEADING LADY:

The Carnelian Crow! I can’t wait to revisit Mina and Evaline again.

  1. Yay! Love that you did this tag! I loved seeing the characters you chose for it too! I really need to read Replica before the sequel comes out. Your post definitely reminded me of that! Loved seeing some of the incredible Shadowhunter ladies on here as well! Awesome! πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

  2. Loved this, Kate!! ❀ I loveddddd how you included Jenny. She really does it quite brilliantly (fighting from her heart that is in Ghostly Echoes), and I was so excited to see her in here. Also, I didn't know that you read Famous Last Words! What did you think of it? Wonderful post, Kate, and loved all of your choices!! πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks so much, Mandy! Jenny was amazing in Ghostly Echoes! She had so much development and a great character journey. Of course I had to include her! I did read Famous Last Words, and I did enjoy it. While it isn’t a perfect book, I found it to be an enjoyable paranormal mystery that I can reread quite a bit.

      1. Yes! I’m really hoping she’s going to play a major part in the fourth one. But yes! I read her first one, and it was more character driven less mystery but still rather good. And then there is another one Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall, I believe, that seems like Famous Last Words but just set in a haunted boarding school in my mind Goodreads is correct. XD

      2. I hope she will too. She likely will, after GE. Oh, what’s Alender’s first one? And hmm, I’ve heard of Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall, but I’ve leaned away from it due to the title πŸ˜…. It just seems kind of gimmicky and melodramatic to me, but hey, if the plot is good…

      3. Her first one was Bad Girls Don’t Die. All I remember is a girl moves to a new house and something with her sister and a ghost/demon? And lol, it really does sound so gimmicky. And the cover does me in too because it’s like basically every YA ghost story. XD But I am intrigued if it will be like Famous Last Words.

    1. Sam had fantastic develop, especially mental. She changed her whole outlook in seven days. That’s strength. And anyone who claims Hazel isn’t a warrior in her own right just confuse me. And that’s okay, we all have different tastes in books!
      And no problem! I can’t wait to see who you choose.
