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.

GIRLS WHO ARE WEAPONS MASTERS:
Thalia Grace from Percy Jackson, Evaline Stoker from Stoker and Holmes:
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.
