Jade Togonon (maidenofdragons) | 3 comments Hello! I'm looking for action-packed YA fantasy books with a strong female lead~ Someone who's capable or resourceful (not necessarily a fighting machine.. I just don't want to spend a quarter of a book about self-pity and foolish indecisiveness that puts people in danger).. Books like Graceling, Grave Mercy, Poison Study or Hunger Games are good. I like Ildiko from Radiance though.. A bit of romance is welcome! I do prefer slow-building relationships though.. not really a fan of "OMG he's so hot! I love him already!" stuff =_=

Romana (eponinejondrettes) | 2 comments Angelfall - Penn is a little bit of a fighting machine, but she's a very interesting character
The Winner's Curse - Kestrel the lead isn't much of a fighter, but she's very cunning
An Ember in the Ashes - this alternates perspectives between a male and female lead. Plus, it's a little slow at the start, but it picks up speed later on

Chocolatesoup Check out Finnikin of the Rock, the female lead is strong, the plot is intricate and there is a slow building romance too.

Kay (queenofrandomness) | 16 comments It's been ages since I've read it, but I remember liking Paranormalcy quite a bit.
