Girl power (for older dee’s)

Hi dee’s!

Are you unhealthily obsessed with girl power books set in the middle ages? (no modern day books here) then i got a perfect list for you!
then turn on the Katy Perry and look at you library cos i’m gonna show you the best books in the world here’s the list of the ones i have infront of me now i’ll make the ones i don’t have in front of me bold:

Tamora peirce (the best girl power writer ever)
the song of the lioness

Alanna The First Adventure, In The Hand Of The Goddess, The Woman Who Rides Like A Man, Lioness Rampant

the immortals

Wild Magic, Wolf Speaker. The Emperor Mage, The Realms Of The Gods.

The Protector Of The Small

First test, Page, Squire, Lady Knight.

Okay now i explain the books…
The Song Of The Lioness: Alanna doesn’t want to be a lady so she and her twin brother Thom switch places and Thom becomes a sorcerer and Alanna has a lot of adventures (won’t tell you if  she passes the ordeal or not cos then I’d spoil the whole thing.)

Immortals: Daine is a young girl from Galla she comes to Tortall and gets a job with the hostler for the queens riders  she is an orphan and she doesn’t know she has Wild Magic until a black robed mage Numair Salmalin (sal-mar-leen) tells her and she has loads of adventure with a bit of romance (my fave)

Protector Of The Small: Keladry of Mindealan wants to follow in her heros foot steps (Alanna) and be the first known girl knight but all the boys and the training master and the king  don’t want her to (in a way) what’ll she do?..

The Enchanted Forest Chronicles

Dealing with dragons, Searching For Dragons, Calling On Dragons, Talking To Dragons.

The books:

Dealing With Dragons: Princess Cimorene really doesn’t like being a princess so she runs away to live with a dragon named Kazul, But everyone wants her to go home and then she runs into some wizards and things get bad…

Searching For Dragons: Mendanbar is a king who doesn’t want to be a king (surprise surprise) after finding a burnt part of the forest he goes to the dragons unfortunately Kazul is kidnapped and they don’t know what to do, I love this one it’s romantic!

Calling On Dragons:Princess Cimorene is now Queen Cimorene  and the evil wizards are trying to take over the Enchanted Forest (surprise surprise) and Cimorene with the help of not so witchy witch a magician two cats a dragon and a six foot blue flying donkey named Killer (?) have to go out to save the Enchanted Forest.

Talking To Dragons: Daystar is a prince who doesn’t know he’s a prince (that is not a spoiler) and he has to  with a magic sword and a feisty dragon and a bee-yoo-ty-ful Fire witch (the beautiful part is mine) find out what on earth he is doing well actually he’s trying to save his dad sooo…. oh and everyone he meets knows who he is… dun dun dun!

there is also..: Ella Enachanted: Ella is a merchants daughter when she was born she was “gifted” with obedience “if it’s hop on one foot for a day and a half or chopping of her own head Ella has to obey. But Strong ella doesn’t accept her fate meekly” that is my general attemt of a quote from the back of the book anyway she comes alot of troubles when her mum dies and that incudes saving the prince char (does this sound familliar) wit the hinderers of step sisters and mum and a zillion trols and other stuff Ella has to find a way to remove her curse.

That is my fave girl power middle ages books my modern day ones will be up soon!
