Anonymous whispered: I have a rec for books like Tamora Pierce's! It's called The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson. I don't think anyone recommended it before, or perhaps my skimming skills are bad. It's a great kind of herione-ism where the girl just seems as average as anyone else, insecure teenager, but she grows and develops so well throughout the book. Good reads says, It's about a princess with a magical god stone who gets an arrange marriage. She goes from being weakling to a strong independent woman.
Thanks for the recommendation!
You know I used to love Tamora Pierce books when I was younger and adored that they were all about strong women and multi faceted women and now I realize that they’re basically the poster…
