Fight Like a YA Girl Book Tag

Hello beautiful people!

The lovely Mandy over at Book Princess Reviews tagged me in the very popular Fight Like a YA Girl book tag, which I’m super excited about! Mandy is a wonderful book blogger who writes incredible book reviews and created the amazing idea of using Disney Princesses to organize her ratings for the books she reads. Honestly, I wish I thought of this…I LOVE DISNEY PRINCESSES! It makes her blog SO unique! Thank you Mandy for tagging me! And to those reading this, go over and see her blog!

The tag was created by Krysti at YA and Wine…another book blogger you REALLY need to check out if you haven’t yet! Basically, this tag is to demonstrate the importance and power of strong women in literature. I truly think this is both a fun and important book tag; demonstrating the strength and power of women is vital to our ever growing and ever changing society. Why not show this in the book world?

Side note: I don’t believe all of these classify as YA; there are a few children and a few adult. I was getting frustrated with choosing only YA…I fail! I’m sorry!

The Rules

  1. Thank the person who tagged you.
  2. Mention the creator Krysti at YA and Wine
  3. Match at least one YA girl with each of the themes below.

  1. This was SO much to read! I loved all of your choices, and it was cool how you brought in more than just YA (I was having a struggle with that as well). I loved seeing all the different fierce ladies, and I definitely see a few new ones that I need to get reading about. Thanks so much for the sweet introduction as well, and your post was just wonderful, Jenna! 🙂
