The Song of the Lioness Quartet
The Song of the Lioness Quartet | Tamora Pierce
20 posts | 31 read | 13 to read
TAMORA PIERCE creates worlds you'll fall in love with... A captivating author, whose books combine the drama and action of The Lord of the Rings with the characters girls love - J.R.R. Tolkien meets Jacqueline Wilson! Alanna is feisty and brave, and she wants to be a knight. But she's a girl, and girls don't get to be knights. So she decides to travel to Tortall disguised as a boy. It's crazy and dangerous, but it's also just the beginning of Alanna's big adventure...

1) Alanna of Trebond
2) LOVE!
3) one of the first examples of female knights I ever saw, and her strength, both mental & physical, are examples to me.
4) @ShelleyBooksie
Thanks for the tag, @BookwormAHN !

Always nice to start my week off with #ManicMonday, @JoScho 😊

📖 “Alanna - The First Adventure” from Tamora Pierce‘s “Song of the Lioness” series

🍿 “Madagascar” (Okay, I really thought of Lion King first, but since I‘m guessing at least 99% of people will pick that one, I went with my second choice! 😂)

🎶 “Lyin‘ Eyes” by The Eagles

JoScho Lol how did I NOT think of Lion King?!? 8mo
DaveGreen7777 @JoScho That‘s the beauty of these Manic Monday challenges, someone will always come up with an answer you‘re not expecting! 😁 8mo
JoScho Yes! It seems like such an obvious choice and it never even crossed my mind. 8mo

#anewchapter #wife Alanna is an unconventional wife at best - trained as a knight, her life is full of danger, and she‘s often away from home. She & her daughter struggle to connect in later books, and I love how richly marriage is portrayed through the Tortall series.

MayJasper I like your blurb 😊 10mo

I happened across this crowdfunding page for Mr B's Emporium of Reading Delights in Bath, where I whiled away a wonderful few hours on a trip once. One of their rewards was that they would choose books that a hero/heroine (fictional or not) would have on their bookshelf.

I immediately wondered what Alanna of Trebond would be reading (hence the tag). Which hero would you want to read like?

Still strolling down memory lane and still loving it. Part of my love for books is in their ability to transport you into a story, or a world. The other part is that stories like this one, that I loved and loved when I was young transport me back to a time when I felt safe. Not that I don't feel safe now, but to a time where things like grocery money and rent were abstract concepts. I'm delighted that these books are holding up to this reread.

#aprilbookshowers #muscles No muscled men on any of my covers, so I decided to go with someone who, while less conventional, is definitely strong!

The first #LoveTriangles I read all had Alanna of Trebond at their centers! Generally, I am annoyed by the whole #LoveTriangle shtick, but it really doesn't bother me here since it's more about her personal development than about "who will she pick?"

These books are absolutely amazing. They are the first books that immerse you into the magical realm TortalI! A place of wonder, beauty and girls that kickass! I reread the entire collection every 2 years or so.

For #kickassheroines I have to go with Alanna of Trebond. I'm reading this series to my two sons right now (age 10 and 6) and they agree that she is a total badass. We're just getting to the parts where she's getting romantically involved which is kinda awkward but I'm soldiering on amongst giggles! #seasonsreadings2016

Beachesnbooks Alanna is such a badass. 3y

decided to reread the Song of the Lioness Quartet for the Popsugar Reading Challenge (book you haven't read since high school) & I am sure glad I did. while it is never going to be my favorite series of hers, I did forget how much I enjoyed Alanna's adventures ☺📚💜

klwestenberg Omg I LOVED these books growing up! 3y

For #FantasyFriday : one of my favorite YA series about a girl who pretends to be her twin brother in order to train to be a knight. Alanna is such a badass and was one of the first female characters I can remember making me want to kick down gender norms. It's high time I reread this series.
