Dun mind me chipping in some book recs. For adult series, Women of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong features a series of strong and different women protagonists, it is not fantasy but more of supernatural though. And I also strongly recommend the Abhorsen series by Garth Nix that had been recc-ed by others :D

A

Sounds interesting! Thanks!

Thank goodness someone finally recommended Sunshine by Robin McKinley! It's my favorite stand alone novel and it's falling apart from how many times I've read it. All of her books are great but that's definitely my go to. I also really enjoy Beauty by her as well, a retelling of beauty and the beast.

A

Amanda read Sunshine and Holly has read Beauty. Four thumbs up from us!

The series Riyria Revelations series by Michael J Sullivan is one of my favourite series. Epic fantasy adventure with 3 major female characters who pass the bechdal test and are, honestly, really cool. All major characters are well fleshed out and it will keep you guessing until the very end. Narrative themes of oppression and the power that people in power have over the masses. If you can find them, you should totally give them a try.

A

I think we got at least one other rec for this series. Thanks!

I did it! I made a book shelf on my Goodreads account that has all of the books that y’all have been recommending the past few days. All 385 books (so far).

Don’t forget to check out the new FYTortall Book Club on Goodreads to keep the conversations going!

I’ve never attempted anything quite like this so it was a bit of a shot in the dark, but I think it came out okay and I had to do it because I love Tammy’s books too much not too. It’s based off the Tortall map from PoTS for one of the UK editions. It’s entirely hand-sewn into cotton  and for those who care, the border is double herringbone stitch (I think)and there are little glass beads in each corner and blanket stitch around the edge of the brown backing fabric.

“There are so many writers of color out there, and often what they get when they bring their books to their editors, they say, ‘We don’t relate to the character.’ Well it’s not for you to relate to! And why can’t you expand yourself so you can relate to the humanity of a character as opposed to the color of what they are?”

Anika Noni Rose in Vanity Fair, via this excellent Buzzfeed article on diversity in publishing. (via leeandlow)

Yup. I’ve gotten this rejection many a time. Never by my editor, but let’s be honest. We all know what it really means.
