Book Recommendations for Tamora Pierce lovers (pt. 1)
Our followers recommend:
The Farsala Trilogy by Hilari Bell
“One of the POV characters is a woman and she’s really kick ass. Plus there’s war, magic, rebellion, spies, lots of really awesome characters and a mule that thinks he’s a duck.”
Uprooted by Naomi Novik
The Ranger’s Apprentice by John Flanagan
“The main characters are men, but the women are kickass and actually have important functioning roles in the plot!”
Literally Anything by Brandon Mull (Fablehaven or the Beyonders especially)
You might feel weird picking up a 600-page-each-book series written for 5-8th graders but believe me when I say that these books are so damn phenomenal, you’ll be glad you did. Really imaginative stories. Good characters. Patton Burgess.
The Name of the Wind (of The Kingkiller Chronicle series) by Patrick Rothfuss
A more adult fantasy novel that is so unbelievably good I can’t even put it into words. Just do it.
Sabriel by Garth Nix
A classic. No explanation needed.
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
We love a good two-perspective story. Bonus points for supporting an author who is a WOC!
The Young Elites by Marie Lu
This story is not without its weak moments, but A+ for a non-Medieval England setting and main characters with physical deformities. Also revenge is good.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas
Beauty and the Beast retelling. Curses, trials, fairies. If for nothing else, read for the scene where the protag gets mad at the two male characters and paints portraits of their faces on pigs’ bodies for hours.
