So, I read a review of Mockingjay Part 2, and I was somewhat troubled by the idea that there should be “romance” happening at the end of the movie (especially, since, really, there wasn’t one happening in the books).
Quite a while ago now (in Internet terms at least), Preeti Chhibber started the hashtag #Womeninfiction on Twitter. She wrote about it here for Book Riot, and though it’s been a while, I still wanted to offer up my reasoning for why I chose the women I did, because I did not do so the night I posted my tweets.
I hardly ever identify with female protagonists. Either they’re too pretty, too privileged, or too prissy. Sometimes all three.
