Books that Give me *Insert Your Country* Pride
July 4th is America’s Independence Day. So, in honour of that, I’ll be listing books that I feel inspire me with American pride! You will list books that you feel inspire you with your country’s pride!
- The Gallagher Girls Series by Ally Carter: When I first saw this prompt, this was the series that instantly came to mind. Told in the perspective of Cammie, we are taken into this elite boarding school for Exceptional Young Women, where Cammie and her fellow classmates are groomed and taught to become the world’s best spies. I don’t even know why this made me feel inspired by my country, but it is what it is. America=Female badass spies who get shit done. Sounds about right I think…
- Hamilton: The Revolution: My thespian heart fills with American pride with this breakdown book of the groundbreaking and game changing musical Hamilton. It’s literally a breakdown of the process creating and rehearsing the musical, but like the musical, you can’t help but feel a sense of pride and wonder about how amazing our ancestors were and their determination to leave a legacy that will surpass us all. 10/10 would recommend!
- The Wall of Winnipeg and Me: There is no other sport that screams AMERICAAAAAA more so than football. Because I am a slut for some good sports romance I had a lot of options to choose from, but ultimately I chose this one because a) Zapata is my favorite romance author and who would I be not to mention her at least once during this event and b) even though Aiden is Canadian, ya girl feels a sense of pride that America snagged him to play football for us. A time truly.
What books make you feel patriotic? Let me know!
