sadie hawkins day
a female character who takes her fate in her own hands
MANDY: Tella from Legendary. She certainly isn’t waiting for anyone or anything. She is determined to live life by her own way, and she is certainly…omg, wait. I just got the actual Fate thing. LOOK AT ME GO.
SHA: Ava from Fairest. Her entire life, people shun her because her beauty does not match society’s ideals. Finally, she decides to leave the inn she calls home and journey to the palace to see how she can change her fate.
guy fawkes night
a plot that was stopped at the last minute
MANDY: Escaping from Houdini. I found the ending to be just cut the moment they stepped off the boat and then they had to scurry up and rectify the things that they messed up in the last few seconds.
SHA: There is a plot in Descendant of the Crane that is stopped at the last minute — but then we find out it backfires. I won’t say anymore because of spoilers ~~~
a character with an uncommon hobby
MANDY: Meg from The Trials of Apollo series. I’m not sure it’s really an uncommon hobby, but I so rarely see people with gardening and a love of gardening in YA stories. It’s mostly stuff like photography, reading, or etc. but I was excited to see gardening.
SHA: In Stepsister, sisters Octavia and Isabelle love the sciences and swordfighting (respectively). But in their time, this is extremely uncommon for women. In fact, the talents are scolded.
world kindness day
a villain who is changed by kindness
MANDY: Perle from Our Bloody Pearl. They are literally a murderous siren, but when they see not all humans are terrible and can kind like Dejean, they changed their mind on how to react with humans.
SHA: Can I say Elizabeth Frankenstein? She was selfish, lacked independence, and was extremely manipulative. Then she encountered people who were kind, and she made changes for the better.
use less stuff day
a character who gives up something in their life (i.e. a dream, a possession)
MANDY: Tella in Legendary. Lol, you can tell that I just read this book when I was answering these questions. She certainly has some tough decisions, and she continously makes sacrifices for who she loves and what she wants.
SHA: Brynn in The Deceivers dreamed to be a strong student, someone who could succeed in school and make things happen for herself. She didn’t entirely give up that dream, but she realized that she would have to make it happen in not so legal ways when she ends up enlisted in a school for thieves and pickpockets.
start your own country day
a book with its own land / world
MANDY: *is trying really hard not to say Caraval so much* The Good Luck Girls! Magic, murder, and the Wild Wild West – but so much more unique.
SHA: In House of Salt and Sorrows, the characters live in the fictional Salann Islands which are ruled by a Duke. (Which in turn are in the land of Arcannia, or something like that, under the rule of a King.)
