  1. YES to Alanna and Kel. While it’s been a while since I read any of Tamora Pierce’s books, those two really stick out in my mind as being completely awesome. I need to read more (or all) of the other books on your list.

  2. I haven’t read either of the Tamora Pierce or Maria Synder novels and I know that I neeeeed to! I know I would love them so much, but i’ve just never gotten around to them 🙁

    Katsa, Elisa and Cinder, yes yes and yes! So phenomenal. I think Elisa’s character growth is the best i’ve ever seen!

    Great list Kate 🙂 And i’m very glad I found your blog!

  3. Cinder made my list too, man I love that little cyborg ♥ I can NOT believe I forgot to include Mac though, she’s the BOSS and she definitely deserves a spot on this list^^ I’m actually reading Alanna for the first time atm but I’m loving it – I’m about halfway through but I have a feeling she’ll make the cut next time 🙂 Awesome list!!
