Pormenores da obra

Graceling por Kristin Cashore

  1. 333
    The Hunger Games por Suzanne Collins (librarymeg, saltypepper)
    saltypepper: The heroines' voices are very similar, maybe due to their similar response to the awful circumstances they find themselves in.
  2. 291
    Fire por Kristin Cashore (SheReads, Utilizador anónimo)
    SheReads: Prequel to Graceling about different characters.
    Utilizador anónimo: because you get the same different world paranormal thing and you get the romance and the good conquers evil
  3. 230
    The Hero and the Crown por Robin McKinley (Aerrin99, humouress)
    Aerrin99: Aerin and Katsa are both gifted women who struggle to find the line between respect and fear. Also, they kick butt.
    humouress: The way the heroines feel like outsiders because of their heritage is similar, as is the way the authors describe the way the heroines think.
  4. 201
    Alanna: The First Adventure por Tamora Pierce (francescadefreitas, helgagrace, espertus)
    espertus: Both Graceling and the Lioness quartet are stories of strong but vulnerable young women wanting to use their considerable powers for good and maintain their identity in the face of romance.
  5. 170
    Poison Study por Maria V. Snyder (deadbookdarling)
    deadbookdarling: Both are set in magical worlds, have strong female leads and a dash of romance.
  6. 170
    The Blue Sword por Robin McKinley (foggidawn, Aerrin99, humouress)
    Aerrin99: For stories that feature interesting and strong woman matched with equally interesting and strong men, with a dash of danger, adventure, and magic tossed in, try either of these books!
    humouress: The way the heroines feel like outsiders because of their heritage is similar, as is the way the authors describe the way the heroines think.
  7. 90
    Terrier por Tamora Pierce (notemily)
  8. 83
    The Thief por Megan Whalen Turner (notemily, C.Vick)
    C.Vick: While different in essence, I think Turner's Attolia books have a similar feel to Graceling.
  9. 50
    Finnikin of the Rock por Melina Marchetta (alaskabookworm)
  10. 61
    First Test por Tamora Pierce (foggidawn)
  11. 30
    The Singer of All Songs por Kate Constable (bbrux)
    bbrux: Young woman on an adventure to discover her hidden talents.
  12. 30
    Uprooted por Naomi Novik (cransell)
    cransell: Both excellent YA fantasy with strong female characters and great world building.
  13. 20
    Mistwood por Leah Cypess (foggidawn)
  14. 20
    Cinder por Marissa Meyer (justjukka)
    justjukka: Protagonist is relegated to third-class citizenship because of her gifts and must overcome prejudice.
  15. 21
    Throne of Glass por Sarah J. Maas (luna_lovegood)
    luna_lovegood: Exactly as kazhout said "strong, beautiful, intelligent, and sassy." Plus, badass and good heart.
  16. 43
    Divergent por Veronica Roth (hairball, Echocliffs)
    hairball: Young women rebelling against their prescribed role.
  17. 21
    The Queen of Attolia por Megan Whalen Turner (Nikkles)
  18. 10
    Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit por Nahoko Uehashi (avatiakh)

I love Kristin Cashore's writing style and her characters. I think her world building is excellent although it can get a bit overly complicated at points. I do think the Graceling Realm books started off incredibly strong and got a bit weaker with each subsequent book. ( )

More of a 4.5, I loved this book and everything about it. Katsa is a strong female character that I can identify with through and through. Highly recommended. ( )

I was totally ready to rip this book apart in my review when halfway through, but some unexpected developments of character and plot changed my mind. The overall problem I had is the same that Felica Day hit upon in her review. Things seem too sketchy and not thought out throughout a lot of the book. Again and again I found myself yelling out loud, "The character wouldn't do that!", too. It was like after the plot was sketched out, Ms Cashore didn't think through the character's motivations and thoughts anymore.

So, as I said, at 50% the book was on par for a 2-star review. The pace picked up and--more importantly--the characters began to grow. The climb through the pass was especially good for this. Descriptions became more vibrant, history was revealed, and I didn't have to rely on just the basics of a story. By the end of the book I was interested in reading the sequel. Way to pull it out in the end. ( )

I really enjoyed this and can't wait to read more. I think if you are a fan of the Throne of Glass series then you will enjoy this as well. If you want to hear all my thoughts on this book, then stay tuned for my August 2020 Wrap Up Vlog coming soon to my YouTube channel called Completely Melanie. ( )

I just want to start off by saying do NOT listen to the audiobook, the voice acting is so bad. Fortunately, this was a re-read/listen for me so it did not detract as much as if this was my initial impression of the story. 1/5 stars to the audiobook, 4/5 stars to the actual book!

CW: Sex.
Like I said, this is a re read for me. Maybe because it’s been like 10 years since I first read this series but I totally forgot about the sex scene in Graceling. It’s for the most part tasteful and I loved that it showed Katsa responsibly thinking about birth control. However, it shockingly tries to normalize women feeling painduring sex. With my background in Sexual Health Advocacy and with an intended reader audience of an impressionable age, I feel like I really can’t let this slide. Please, please, please do NOT let this be a take-away for you, especially to my younger followers. I still think Graceling is a good book, but sex should not hurt and if it does that means your body is not ready (and needs more foreplay). Please take care of yourself.

Other than that incident, this book has aged quite well which I find impressive. ( )

In a world of gossip girls, it is perhaps refreshing to have a teenage heroine who cuts off all her hair because it gets in her way; and Kristin Cashore’s eccentric and absorbing first novel, “Graceling,” has such a heroine. Katsa is tough, awkward, beautiful and consumed by pressing moral issues
