I’m taking a different approach to today’s topic. Instead of listing five favorites, I’m going to give five book ideas for those who enjoy strong, female protagonists.
Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
Let’s begin the list with one of my favorite books. Although she’s orphaned at a young age, Ann-with-an-e perseveres and remains a hopeless romantic despite all her hardships. It’s difficult to read Anne’s story without laughing at her antics.
Girl of Fire and Thorns (series) by Rae Carson
Elisa doesn’t necessarily want to be the Chosen One, but she has no choice. She must embrace her true identity and protect her kingdom and the ones she loves— or die trying.
The Frost Chronicles by Kate Avery Ellison
When Lia Weaver saves the life of a fugitive named Gabe, she embarks on a journey that will change everything she believes about her village, her family, and herself.
The Scribes of Medeisia by R.K. Ryals
Drastona (Stone) dreams of becoming a scribe. She achieves her dream and much more when she realizes she is also a mage and possibly the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy. However, “with great power comes great responsibility” (it’s the catchphrase of ole Uncle Ben), and she must learn to wield her power if she wants to overthrow a king and become the leader her kingdom deserves.
These books come highly recommended by yours truly. Let me know if you give them a try!
Until the next post . . . keep smiling!
