Also, a huge thank you to Alexa, Jaz, Judith, Katie and Rachel for creating this unofficial street team and a way for us to share our love of this series with you all.

For my stop on the tour... 

Last year I listed 5 reasons why I love this series and they all still stand. This year I wanted to do something different and decided to highlight some of the many wonderful (secondary) female characters in this book and have y'all vote on your favorite, if you can choose! We all know that Sarah is pretty skilled at creating swoon-worthy males, but she is as equally skilled at creating inspiring females, all of whom will stay with me forever. So without further ado, her are some of the badass ladies we have the privilege of reading about and why I love them...


Time to choose!

I didn't know who I was going to choose as I was making this list, and I still could go back and forth between all of these characters because they are all amazing, but right now I am leaning towards...

*drum roll please*


Love and loyalty are two of the things I value most in this world and Asterin is the epitome of both. I also love that she was willing to stand up for what she believed in even if it would cost her.

Now, it's your turn!

Which secondary female character is your favorite?

I'd rather die than choose!
