Hello, my fellow book loving friends. I’m glad you’ve stopped by today whether you’re a new reader or a devoted one, I appreciate it.
Instead of the usual book review or other ramble, today I’m finally (finally!) getting around to publishing a tag that the kind Flavia
tagged me with – thank you. Remembering when she did is a little embarrassing since I believe it was over a month ago. (My apologies, Flavia.) But here we go. Today is all about fulfilling this fun tag because if there’s one thing I enjoy over here on Finding Wonderland, it’s putting together tags.
This one is especially fun because it gives bloggers a chance to spotlight some fierce YA girls (and yes, I am breaking the rules and talking about some characters who are not from YA books). So, while some of these are kind of half-hearted (Because I simply couldn’t think of MORE characters), I still had tons of fun with this tag – and just so you know, there are more tags coming because fun. Below are my answers to some of the tag questions.
The Rules: 1. Thank the person who tagged you 2. Mention the creator Krysti at YA and Wine 3. Match at least one YA girl with each of the themes below. 4. Tag as many people as you like!* (*You’re all tagged, so if you join in, please come back and
leave your blog link.)
Without further ado, Finding Wonderland presents.
➤➤➤Fight Like a YA Girl Book Tag 2017
GIRLS WHO FIGHT WITH THEIR HEART
The first character who comes to mind is Henrietta “Nettie” Howel. I don’t remember everything about her because it’s been to long since I read this novel, but Nettie seems to fit this label really well. I also feel like Samantha Donaldson from Terri Brown’s Velvet Undercover is a good fit.
GIRLS WHO ARE TRAINED FIGHTERS
Um, aside from Katniss Everdeen, who else is a trained fight in YA lit?? *wonders* *looks* *thinks some more* Oh, there’s also Tris from Divergent.
STRONG GIRLS OF COLOR
Maddie Whittier (Everything, Everything) is a fabulous character, and I love how she takes control of her life.
GIRLS WHO DON’T CONFORM TO GENDER ROLES
The only character who comes to mind is Gwen from the Disney film, Princess of Thieves.
GIRLS WITH KICK-BUTT MAGICAL POWERS
Ooo, this is a fun question! To be honest, no one from a book come to mind (is this a good or bad thing?). However from TV, I
thought of Dorothy from Emerald City.
STRONG GIRLS IN CONTEMPORARY NOVELS
Tess Eckhart (The Gifting), and also Nora Bradford from True to You or Sam from The Whys Have It. None of these ladies are anywhere near the “normal” kind of strong this prompt is thinking of when asking this question, but there is more than one kind of strength.
SERIOUSLY FIERCE GIRLS
Um, the list is probably endless, right? Sadly, I couldn’t think of a whole list, but those I did are sure fierce.
MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK WITH A STRONG LEADING LADY
Nova from Marissa Meyer’s Renegades. I mean I haven’t even read any of Marissa’s books, and even still, this book sounds and looks fierce!
