Top Ten Tuesday #89: Top Ten Books I'm Thankful For

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I'm Thankful For (Happy Thanksgiving week in the USA!)

Tina's Picks
I'm thankful for the brave headstrong female protagonists in YA series. I love when awesome characters are brilliant yet innocent, manipulatively devilish yet gentle and sincere, and all around great examples of the complexity that is female.

Warcross by Marie Lu - female hacker uncovers the dark workings (terrorists?) of the virtual world.

Secondborn by Amy A. Bartol - second child citizens are raised as lowborns and treated as mindless soldiers of this dystopian society.

The Winter King by C.L. Wilson - Khamsin isn't about to sit back and let the men dictate her life. She leads her armies into the tumultuous battle of humans vs. ice demons.

Paladin by Sally Slater - Sam wants more than live a sheltered boring privileged life, she wants to become a warrior.

The Final Empire (Mistborn) by Brandon Sanderson - Vin didn't even know she holds Allomantic powers. As she was invited to join a complex thieving crew, she embraced her powers and grew to become a force to be reckon with.

The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli - female dragon hunter who is more feared than her father's commander of the army. 

Roar by Cora Carmack - Aurora takes control of her destiny.

Prism by Nina Walker - wanted by her alchemy abilities, Jessa decides to become a player and change the game.


Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid - a creation to serve mankind turns more human than her creators and seeks to change the outcome of the Empire.
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo
