I miss it terribly, I’m sort of out of my reading/life slump so decided to come back, for the time being I’m not going to have any sort of real schedule, I’m just going to post as and when! 💕💕
I’ve also had a little new logo design made by my amazing fiancé (I did have to pester him loads to do it for me though)
So now I’ve got that little bit out of the way, today I thought we could chat about one of the things I HATE most in YA books, and that is girl on girl hate. SERIOUSLY, the amount of YA (I’d go more so for contemporary than fantasy) that has a lot of girl hate in it crazy. Real life isn’t always like that?? Yet in so many YA books I feel like it is used constantly in them 🙄🙄!!!
I just don’t understand why there is so much girl on girl hate? Surely YA women should be supporting each other in books not automatically creating some sort of petty squabbling relationship? It’s usually the same sort of thing, one would be the popular girl the other one not so much, or it would be something to do with them both liking the same guy? I want to see SO MUCH MORE amazing female friendships in YA books.
I can name SO MANY guy friendships in YA books (take the raven boys for example? or the darker shade of magic series??) Sadly, I can’t mention that many female friendships, not the ones that hated each other but are now friends but ones that are friends all the way through and it’s such a shame.
Basically, I just want to see some healthy girl friendships, girls supporting girls (think moxie), don’t get me wrong I love some of the friendships from books that I have listed above but I long for some awesome female friendships.
(PLEASE RECOMMEND ME SOME AWESOME FEMALE FRIENDSHIPS BOOKS IN THE COMMENTS BELOW)
What do you think? Are you fed up of seeing a lack of female friendships in YA books?
