The Me in Characters Book Tag

At last, it’s back to bookblogging!

I’m done with the hiatus, so let’s kick things off with a long overdue book tag: Me in Characters. I thought this was a really cool idea back when I spotted this on Kristin Kraves Books, but since I was stuck in with book promo stuff, I’ve been saving it until now. Many thanks to Kristin for her post and to the original book tag creator, Emma @ Dreamers Library.  I suppose there’s no statute of limitations on book tags, so if you want to do it, here are the rules:

  1. Thank the creators of the tag
  2. Thank whoever tagged you!
  3. List 5 book characters who you are most like and explain why.
  4. Tag your friends!

Outpost: 6 Warrior Women and the Fiction They Inspired

What do an escaped slave in Jamaica, an ex-prostitute in southern China and an Apache prophetess have in common? They rose from humble origins to become some of the most remarkable warrior women in history.

It’s a busy time for guest posts. On this occasion, Lauralee over at History From a Woman’s Perspective has kindly played host. Following on my last post about Soviet women combat pilots, I expanded my scope to look at warrior women through history. In particular, I wanted to focus on women from humble origins. Not surprisingly, their stories have caught the attention of other writers, so I also got to highlight the stories and novels that these women inspired. A bookish and historical post in one!
