Enjoying Eon by Alison Goodman

I am reading and *loving* EON by Alison Goodman (YA fantasy). I love it when a good book really makes me care about and root for a character, and believe in the story world. I also love finding strong girl characters, especially in fantasy. And I enjoy finding an author new to me that I love, where I think I’ll want to keep reading and buying all their books. That’s such a delight!

Goodman’s book reminds me a little of some of Tamora Pierce’s books that I’ve loved–a girl warrior who is emotionally strong, talented, and who finds her own way. And in EON, I love that it’s a girl who is posing as a boy, being a warrior when it is forbidden to girls. It’s also very cool to find a trans character in the book. Loving it so much so far!

Have you read Eon? Did you enjoy it? Do you have a YA fantasy with a strong girl character you want to recommend?
