This week has been super exciting for me - I am finally back into reading, writing reviews, and participating in blog tours! Plus I'm in full steam ahead with Science Fiction and Fantasy Fridays by hosting a giveaway for a copy of THE FIFTH SEASON by N.K. Jemisin that runs until the end of the month!

See what I've been up to below...

What are some of your favourite aspects of strong female characters? I like my female characters to have a quiet strength and be open and vulnerable. I've found the two main characters in THE PHOENIX EMPRESS by @arsenaultrivera to embody these traits (and some badassery too!). Check out the summary to THE TIGER'S DAUGHTER, the first in this series, below!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ //⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even gods can be slain….⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Hokkaran empire has conquered every land within their bold reach―but failed to notice a lurking darkness festering within the people. Now, their border walls begin to crumble, and villages fall to demons swarming out of the forests.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Away on the silver steppes, the remaining tribes of nomadic Qorin retreat and protect their own, having bartered a treaty with the empire, exchanging inheritance through the dynasties. It is up to two young warriors, raised together across borders since their prophesied birth, to save the world from the encroaching demons.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is the story of an infamous Qorin warrior, Barsalayaa Shefali, a spoiled divine warrior empress, O-Shizuka, and a power that can reach through time and space to save a land from a truly insidious evil.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ //⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Day 09: #janinbooks19 [Strong Female Characters] & #janbookstagram19 [First Chapters]⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ //⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #booklover #bookworm #bookstagrammer #booknerd #bookaddict #bookishlove #bookcommunity #bookwormlife #bookgram #igreads #readersofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #goodreads #bookishcanadians #bookishfeature #books #bookstagram #ireadya #iloveya #yalover #yalovin
