Series for Strong Girlz & Their Moms!
Looking for a series with strong female leads to
share with your tween/teen or planning your spring break reading escape? Last year, my daughter and I started listening to books together in the car. Here are a few that we have enjoyed!
1. The Fair Assassin series by Robin LaFevers/ A little historical fiction, a little paganism, a little magic and assassin nuns, Set in the 14th century amidst the political intrigue of France, Catholicism and paganism. If you like Game of Thrones, you might enjoy this as there is less gratuitous violence. Not really marketed for teens, but totally accessible.
3. If you are a fan of the Beautiful Creatures series and want to read the genre described as Southern Gothic, you will fall deep for the romantic and magical lure of The Inheritance of Watson Island series by Martina Boone. Plenty of the paranormal and a little history here too.
Happy Reading and\or Listening!
