    Graceling por Kristin Cashore (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.

    Eon por Alison Goodman (shadrach_anki, Caramellunacy)
    shadrach_anki: There are definite similarities in theme between these two books, but each has its own take on it.
    Caramellunacy: Both of these stories are fantasy stories about a girl disguising herself as a boy in order to be allowed to apprentice & learn to fight.

    Nobody's Princess por Esther M. Friesner (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Both are stories about a headstrong young woman determined to learn to fight like the boys. Nobody's Princess is an imagining of Helen of Troy's life as a teenager (more tenacity and brains, less vapid beauty) steeped in Greek mythology. Alanna is the first in a fantasy series about a young woman who disguises herself as a boy so that she can be trained as a knight. Both are great girl power reads.… (mais)

    Six of Crows por Leigh Bardugo (wordcauldron)
    wordcauldron: This book sort of seemed to me like an in-depth look at what George's side of life (thieving, gangs, assassins, espionage, etc.) may have been like (though a little more violent than it would have been in Alanna's universe), plus has magic and dangerous adventures.… (mais)

Not super believable in the interpersonal relationships sometimes but it's fantasy so whatever. ( )

Very good read. I loved meeting all the new characters and exploring the world. Some of the Villan stuff was a tad obvious but i overall love it. ( )

I totally missed Tamora Pierce when I was a young person, so I am giving her a read now.

Alanna is one of those classic young adult novels that uses the language of children's literature to tell a somewhat more mature story. It's a fairly engaging school story that captures the emotional intensity of adolescence (I love how Alanna either LOVES or HATES everyone she meets). However, I didn't care for the prose (endless narrative passages! POV jumps galore!), the worldbuilding was uneven, and there were some pretty sentimental moments that didn't move me as a grown-up reader.

Yet Pierce does many things very, very well in telling the now cliched story of a cross-dressing young woman training to become a warrior. Alanna herself is a very honest depiction of a woman trying to succeed in a traditionally male role. No one knows Alanna is female, but Alanna knows and is possessed by a powerful, sometimes self-destructive need to prove herself. She is haunted by fear that she's not good enough and guilt that she's lying to her friends.

At the end of the day, Pierce's message is not that women can do everything men can do. It's that women can do everything men can do, but the experience of being the exceptional woman will totally suck.

As an aside, it occurred to me that the cross-dressing lady warrior trope fails to address the historical experiences of cross-dressing people who didn't identify with their birth gender. Alanna is told that it's important that she not lose touch with her female identity. This is somewhat fair if she's happy identifying as a woman, but super unhelpful otherwise. By assuming that people cross-dress in order to get access to male privilege, these narratives tend to push aside the reality of transgender people in the past. ( )

I just finished rereading the whole Song of the Lioness. Miscellaneous thoughts:

* This is the best story Tamora Pierce has written, by far. If you've read other Tamora Pierce books and didn't like them, I still recommend this one to you.

* While it's sold as four separate books, and each book does manage to stand on its own, they're best read together as a single long story and all at once.

* Simple, straightforward style of writing.

* I just love it, ok? It's not always perfect but I even love the imperfections. ( )
