princeless shorts

If you think I’m here for the lady heroes, you’d be 110% correct.

These are some of my faves that I keep right next to my bed for easy access:

  • The Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede. These were probably the first books I ever read with a kick-ass female protagonist, and Cimorene and the gang will forever hold a special place in my heart and bookshelf.
  • Nimona by Noelle Stevenson. I guess technically she’s a villain, what with the murder and destruction and everything, but, to be fair, the system was corrupt in the first place so… I don’t know, but I love her with all my soul.
  • Princeless: Save Yourself (Volume 1) and Princeless: Short Stories by Jeremy Whitley and Co. I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW. Or if you’ve read it, you probably do. It’s just so beautiful and hilarious and amazing and I need to read the rest right now (if only I weren’t so broke sigh).
  • The Sirens of San Francisco by Jacquelin de Leon. A story about a girl gang that is beautiful and violent- oh so violent. Normally I’m not that big a fan of violence but when it’s against misogynistic assholes, bring it on.
  • Lumberjanes: Beware the Kitten Holy (Volume 1) by Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, Shannon Watters, and Brooke A. Allen. Funny and cute and LGBT inclusive- my friend and I were dying over Molly and Mal (THEY’RE SO CUTE OH MY GOD).
