THROWDOWN THURSDAY (5)
Throwdown Thursday is a meme invented by Kate at The Neverending Shelf. It's a weekly thing where we tackle books with similar characters, covers, themes, etc. to determine which one rocks more. And it is up to YOU to determine the winner!
Last week, my throwdown saw Malinda Lo's Ash facing off against Alex Flinn's Beastly. And the winner was...
Both! It was a tie.
These week, I'm throwing down two books which both have kick-ass female protagonists. (Okay, so I'm English, and technically I should say kick-arse, but that sounds lamer.) Both characters have a knack for staying alive, they're both awesome with a bow and arrow, and even their names are pretty evenly matched. So which girl hero gets your vote?
Katsa from Kristin Cashore's Graceling
Katniss from Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy?
