I’ve ranted about my love for TP before (but in a more philosophical way), so imagine my utter joy when I found out that there are other TP fans in the online book community! Nori, another huge TP fan, is doing a Read Tamora Pierce Challenge in 2016, and she has kindly shared her challenge with the rest of us Internet dwellers. What this means is that there will be a good amount of Tamora Pierce here over the next few months, starting this month. TP fans, come forth and celebrate with me! 🎉🎉🎉
My personal goal for this challenge is to review all major Tamora Pierce books by the end of 2016. I’ll update this post with my progress. I also want to generate some TP-related discussion (but not necessarily TP-centric), such as what constitutes good heroines in fiction, imaginary casting for TP movie adaptations, fanart(!!!), if-you-like-TP-books-you’ll-also-like-these-other-books, etc. etc. etc.
For new TP readers – welcome! Please join Nori’s challenge and get ready for some potentially life-changing moments! Here are some Tamora Pierce resources for you to get started:
- Tamora Pierce’s website (her bibliography section might be helpful, but she also has book/movie/show recommendations)
- Goodreads TP series page (although she has some standalones and contributions to anthologies too, that are not included on this list)
For old TP readers – Goddess bless you all! If you aren’t already aware of TP fanart or other unofficial TP stuff… HERE YOU GO. But I’ll let you find the fanfiction on your own.
- Tamora Pierce Fans on DeviantArt (pretty old, but an awesome collection of fanart!)
- Tamora Pierce’s Tumblr (TP’s blog, where she writes about current events, books, and kitties)
- Tamora Pierce on Reddit’s Ask Me Anything, September 2015 and November 2015 (the latest info about her upcoming books, her writing process, etc.)
What are you waiting for? Go read TP!
