For #grimdragon, Bad ass females, Penryn from Angelfall and Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone. If you love post apocalyptic/dystopian stories, you’ll love these! Penryn and Karou are some of my favorite bad ass female heroines. .
Penryn from Angelfall was trained from a young age in self defense which she didn’t understand why her mother had her trained until the angels attacked the world. Her younger sister is kidnapped by a vengeful angel and Penryn is determined to get her sister back—by capturing another angel, Raffe, and forcing him to show her the way to their hideout. Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone is an art student who, in her spare time, draws about a particular group of monsters. The other students enjoy the stories and entertainment, but they’re not just stories. The monsters in Karou’s stories are real, also known as Chimera and who happen to be her family. Her family is threatened when angels come looking for them and Karou is forced to protect and eventually face the truth about who she is and her family—are the chimera the villains? Or are the angels?
If you liked Daughter of Smoke and Bone, you’ll enjoy Angel Fall and vice versa. They’re both fantastic urban/angel stories full of action and strong characters. #livelaughbooksoctober Liked this? Read this and Under-hyped books.
How’s everyone’s week so far? I’ve been productive in the early part of the week and hoping to relax a little for the rest of the week. Yay for bullet journaling!
