Fae Friday is an awesome new weekly post created by Kristy at Caffeinated Fae. I’m super excited to participate in this (and to have been an avid supporter of it from the beginning)! A topic is provided each week, and Kristy is so welcoming to ideas from others. If you have any ideas for topics, reach out to her through her blog or on Twitter (@caffeinatedfae).
Here’s how it works:
- Link back to this page on Caffeinated Fae.
- If the prompt idea comes from another blog, link to that blog as well.
- Use #FaeFriday when posting to social media so we can all find each other!
- Participate when you can and have fun with the prompt!
We are constantly evolving as people which is why the prompt this week is: What are some of your favorite books that show character growth?
- Mona at Sea by Elizabeth Gonzalez James – one of my favorite parts of the book was seeing how much Mona changed over the course of the story, especially since she wasn’t really the most likable character at first.
- This Poison Heart by Kalynn Bayron – while the entire premise of the story and how it was carried out was amazing, I loved seeing Briseis grow and change throughout the story, and really come into her own power.
- The Intimacy Experiment by Rosie Danan – Naomi was such an awesome character, and seeing her learn how to become vulnerable and really open up to someone else was one of my favorite parts of the story. I especially loved that she ended up picking a rabbi, of all people.
- A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas – I’ve always had a soft spot for Nesta, as bitchy as she was, but seeing her character arc had me in heaven. It was really cool to see her own perspective and watch her learn how to manage her trauma in her own way.
- Hook by Gina L. Maxwell – Hook stole my heart from the beginning, but the way that he changed so much in this story made it melt completely.
- Red Rising by Pierce Brown – not just in this book, but over the course of the series, there’s so much change that occurs in Darrow. He goes from basically the bottom of the food chain to the top and everywhere in between, and his psyche has to adjust to all these rapid changes, while still trying to stay true to himself.
What are some of your favorite books featuring character growth?
