  1. I love this list! I completely forgot what day it was >.< Happy International Women's Day! I've read a few of these, but the majority of those are all on my TBR and I can't wait to read them!

  2. So interesting you included Alessandra! I think she’s a bit divisive. I’m torn on her myself because she’s pretty feminist but also rather cruel! It was an interesting book, at least, and I love how different she is from many YA protagonists.
