My love and appreciation for Fangirl is kind of indescribable.
Beautifully foggy morning today
The wonderful thing about tiggers, is tiggers are wonderful things
“Girls are 50% of the population. We deserve to represent 50% of the heroes.” ― Tamora Pierce
Tamora Pierce’s books were so hugely important to me. I got Alanna: the First Adventure and In the Hand of the Goddess for my tenth birthday, back when there just wasn’t YA fantasy with girl characters. I read them until they fell apart.
I really want to read these, after hearing so many good things about this author. Next time, used book store, next time.
I actually just finished reading Circle of Magic for the first time in aaaages, and I’m starting on The Circle Opens now. Such awesome books <3
I mean, I was actually a little shocked when I was reading Daja’s Book and it literally went “A WHITE MAN WALKED IN” to specify because a huge portion of the characters are POC. And I didn’t even notice things like that when I was reading these as a kid, but holy crap.
YOU MUST GET THESE BOOKS LENA. And omg yessssss, Aaron. There’s SO many PoC (and of them, most are women of colour) in her writings, it’s FABULOUS.
Thank god I had native-feeling women like Onua (she always felt native to me) to look up to growing up.
These books really made an amazingly important impact on my life everyone around me NEEEEEEEEDS to read them
I grew up battling a pretty nasty case of dyslexia. I HATED reading. Then a friend, Danielle, showed me The Lioness books, I think we were 12 at the time and the story caught me up so much, it was easy enough to read that I could get into it but complex enough to feel challenged. I ate up everything else Tammy wrote, actually I still do! Thanks to those books I developed a serious love of books and read everything I get my hands on these days.
OKAY LISTEN UP.
If you haven’t read any of these books, YOU CHANGE THAT. LIKE NOW.
They’re all young adult, but god damn holy shit balls are they not awesome reads, but all have female protagonists that you can really look up to. Yes, there is romance, but it’s not about the boy. It’s about these hot damn women kickin’ ass and taking name AND READ THESEEEE ALLLL.
How Much Is Finn & Jake’s Treefort Worth?
Turns out you Adventure Time fans wrote to Movoto asking if they could valuate the cost of Finn & Jake’s treehouse. Being fans themselves, they took on the challenge.
