Happy International Women’s Day! 🙂 On this day last year, I did a post about books that I liked or loved that feature awesome females in fiction. I’m hoping to make it yearly thing.

Why am I not surprised that all of the above are fantasy novels? Next, I thought it would be a good idea to highlight my favorite females who have strength of character instead of physical prowess:
Love me some courageous ladies. Care to share some of your own favorite fictional females?
