Women’s History Book Tag

I’ve done quite a few tags on my blog but I’ve honestly never seen such an interesting tag. Today, I’m attempting the Women’s History Book Tag for which I was tagged by Sophie @Me and Ink. Sophie has a beautiful blog that you all should totally check out 🙂

Also, this tag was created by Margaret @ Weird Zeal who is really creative and awesome so give her blog a look too.

Harley from Harley In The Sky is an amazing character who does whatever the hell she wants. That doesn’t always mean that things end up well for her but mostly she finds her way. She’s definitely unlike any character I’ve ever read and if characters are super reckless and don’t think about the consequences, I end up not liking them. But somehow these traits just really work with Harley.

There are so many intelligent YA characters I could have chosen but I love Ellie from The Sound of Stars, not only because she’s well-read and book smart but also she’s intelligent when it comes to putting herself and others into risk when it comes to adventures. For once we et a protagonist who actually thinks things through and I love her.

All of Amanda Lovelace’s poetry is about empowering woman and woman defying the stereotypes so this is just perfect for this prompt. I will say that I like her first one or two books better than Break Your Glass Slippers but either way, they’re all revolutionary.

The writing is so fluid and beautiful! The writer merges two totally different worlds flawlessly in When She Wrote Him. It’s a book about an author writing a character who is also a writer. Now, who’s the real writer and who’s their character? I really didn’t think anyone else could have accomplished this tricky yet beautiful plot as well as the author did!

I absolutely stan Zafira from We Hunt the Flame. She’s a badass who is passionate and sensible and gah one of the best female characters I’ve ever read! She disguises herself as the Hunter and hunts in the dark forests which eat everyone alive and drive them insane. I can’t praise her enough okay, she’s my idol.

A Spark Of White Fire is probably my favourite sci-fi book ever. It’s a retelling of Mahabharata set in space and the whole plot as well as the characters will definitely blow your mind.

Before the Coffee Gets Cold is honestly the most underrated book I’ve ever come across. I’ve heard about it from like 5 people and all of them loved it. It’s a beautiful story about relationships and life set in a cafe where you can travel to the past. But there are so many rules which revolve around it that hardly anyone ever travels and the story revolves around the few people who do travel.

Again, I can pick so many books but this cutesy book is the one I read most recently. Only Mostly Devastated is about Nick and Ollie who met and had a great summer relationship at camp. Things happen and their courses run at Nick’s school, except that Nick’s not out and sort of a jerkish jock. It’s a nice book where they try to figure out where they are.

The Hate U Give has won so many awards and hell yes, it deserves them! You simply cannot have not come across this book in the bookish community. Angie Thomas is a delight and her books are moving and filled with incredible voices and themes that need to be heard.

Anne Frank (1929-1945)

She was a German-born Dutch-Jewish diarist. One of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust, she gained fame posthumously with the publication of The Diary of a Young Girl , in which she documents her life in hiding from 1942 to 1944, during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. It is one of the world’s best known books and has been the basis for several plays and films.

I admire Anne Frank’s bravery and her writing so much. I’m a huge fan of her book and I really am astounded that she could write so deeply and beautifully at such a young age.

I recently read Kari and it was such an enlightening experience. It’s a gorgeous book and more than that, I love how the author’s bio said ‘writer-painter’ which is what inspires me so much. The world keeps telling you to choose one passion or hobby but here’s someone who refuses to do that 🙂

  1. This is a really interesting tag and I loved doing it myself. I also LOVED reading your answers. Also thank you so much for your kind words about me too!! ❤
    This " For once we get a protagonist who actually thinks things through and I love her." haha yes in so many books you often get a protagonist that acts on impulse then get confused why it went wrong! haha!! She sounds like a great protagonist!!
    After She Wrote Him sounds like a very unique plot and I can't imagine how the plot was handled so I'm definitely curious to see the execution and I'm glad you liked it!!
    We Hunt The Flame is amazing!! I loved it and I loved Zafira, great pick!!
    Before The Coffee Gets Cold and Only Mostly Devastated sound like interesting reads, I will have to read them both at one point!!
    Anne Frank really is amazing and she had such a powerful story!!
    Also this "The world keeps telling you to choose one passion or hobby but here’s someone who refuses to do that" YES I LOVE THAT SO MUCH!! ❤

    • Thank you so much! Aww you deserve them 💖
      Oh yes it’s one of my major pet peeves 🙄
      Yesss, you should absolutely pick up After She Wrote Him! The ending idan open one though so I’ll warn you about that if you’re not very fond of open endings.
      Ahhh I can’t wait for We Free the Stars 😍 Oh yaay, I get so happy when people take my recommendations!
      THANK YOU! I’ve always had a billion hobbies and managing them is exhausting but I couldn’t bear to give them up 🙂

  2. Ahhh thanks so much for doing this tag! I loved reading all your answers – so many books that I need to check out! I absolutely agree that The Hate U Give deserves all the hype 🙂 And your choice of Anne Frank for the last question is absolutely perfect!!
