    I love this tag! You picked such good books for all the categories too! I especially liked the differences between girls who fight with their mind and girls who fight with their heart — celebrating all kinds of personalities. Thanks for sharing!

    Awesome answers! 🙂 I always love seeing what people come up with for this tag. You knocked it out of the park. I’m reading Strange the Dreamer right now and I just got to the part of the book where we meet Sarai. It’s so good so far. Can’t wait to see where the story winds up going.
