In a world where some people are born with extreme and often-feared skills called Graces, Katsa struggles for redemption from her own horrifying Grace, the Grace of killing, and teams up with another young fighter to save their land from a corrupt king.
  1. 311
    Fire de Kristin Cashore (SheReads, Usuário anônimo)
    SheReads: Prequel to Graceling about different characters.
    Usuário anônimo: because you get the same different world paranormal thing and you get the romance and the good conquers evil
  2. 344
    The Hunger Games de Suzanne Collins (librarymeg, saltypepper)
    saltypepper: The heroines' voices are very similar, maybe due to their similar response to the awful circumstances they find themselves in.
  3. 220
    The Hero and the Crown de Robin McKinley (Aerrin99, humouress)
    Aerrin99: Aerin and Katsa are both gifted women who struggle to find the line between respect and fear. Also, they kick butt.
    humouress: The way the heroines feel like outsiders because of their heritage is similar, as is the way the authors describe the way the heroines think.
  4. 221
    Alanna: The First Adventure de Tamora Pierce (francescadefreitas, helgagrace, espertus)
    espertus: Both Graceling and the Lioness quartet are stories of strong but vulnerable young women wanting to use their considerable powers for good and maintain their identity in the face of romance.
  5. 170
    The Blue Sword de Robin McKinley (foggidawn, Aerrin99, humouress)
    Aerrin99: For stories that feature interesting and strong woman matched with equally interesting and strong men, with a dash of danger, adventure, and magic tossed in, try either of these books!
    humouress: The way the heroines feel like outsiders because of their heritage is similar, as is the way the authors describe the way the heroines think.
  6. 170
    Poison Study de Maria V. Snyder (deadbookdarling)
    deadbookdarling: Both are set in magical worlds, have strong female leads and a dash of romance.
  7. 100
    Terrier de Tamora Pierce (notemily)
  8. 83
    The Thief de Megan Whalen Turner (notemily, C.Vick)
    C.Vick: While different in essence, I think Turner's Attolia books have a similar feel to Graceling.
  9. 61
    First Test de Tamora Pierce (foggidawn)
  10. 50
    Finnikin of the Rock de Melina Marchetta (alaskabookworm)
  11. 40
    Uprooted de Naomi Novik (cransell)
    cransell: Both excellent YA fantasy with strong female characters and great world building.
  12. 30
    The Singer of All Songs de Kate Constable (bbrux)
    bbrux: Young woman on an adventure to discover her hidden talents.
  13. 30
    Cinder de Marissa Meyer (justjukka)
    justjukka: Protagonist is relegated to third-class citizenship because of her gifts and must overcome prejudice.
  14. 31
    Throne of Glass de Sarah J. Maas (luna_lovegood)
    luna_lovegood: Exactly as kazhout said "strong, beautiful, intelligent, and sassy." Plus, badass and good heart.
  15. 53

    hairball: Young women rebelling against their prescribed role.

A very refreshing young adult novel with an atypical female lead. Katsa is a Graceling, a person born with a special enhanced ability (not a super power persay, as they are more mundane abilities; referred to as a Grace), and evident by having eyes of two different colors. Katsa's Grace is for fighting and her uncle the King uses her as his enforcer. Katsa is a smart woman, can easily beat or kill anyone who comes against her and desires none of the trappings or roles for the women of her country. She can take care of herself, and frequently is the one doing the rescuing. This a good book for young girls, and a good alternative for a genre which can be filled with princesses needing rescuing or focused on marriage. ( )

1. That scene in Randa’s throne room when the king’s like “I’ll kill you” and Katsa goes “mm no” and he’s all “

Possibly the WORST AUDIO BOOK I'VE EVER LISTENED TO. I loathe "full-cast" audio. Ugh. Gross gross gross. I was so disgusted by the terrible voice actors that I almost ripped the CD from my car stereo and threw it into traffic.

I will have to read it by eye.

In a world where there were not so many somewhat more original, somewhat better constructed, and somewhat more well paced books featuring young women with special powers and difficult relatives, I would have rated this somewhat more highly. Graceling Katsa, an exemplary fighter from childhood with speed, endurance, accuracy is used as a enforcer by her uncle the King but has her own agenda. After meeting Po a graceling with different but similarly effective talents she realizes that she can and must claim her own freedom. ( )

I recently added this book to my list and I had high expectations for this considering I've never read from this author before and this is a start of a series but unfortunately I have two statements to make, one I was underwhelmed by this and probably won't continue with the series and two, oh wait the library I got this from only has the first book and won't get the sequels since they got their last batch this year. Where do I even begin? It starts with the main character Katsa or Kat for short and she lives in one of the seven kingdoms of this world; that's where the first problems with this book emerge. First off is the worldbuilding, it's just not there, there's no explanation for how the kingdoms were formed or the Grace system, I can't wrap my head around it. Second off is the characters, they weren't that fleshed out and the only thing that made Katsa special is that she can kill people with her bare hands and she has different coloured eyes, the other people were meh and the pacing is slow to say the least. Now with that out of the way Katsa initially lives by herself until she meets this person called Prince Po who is a sovereign of a kingdom whose name I forgot and that is why readers consider this a "romantasy", a fantasy romance like Fourth Wing however I wasn't a fan of this one. Most of the book revolves around Katsa's new relationship with Po and there were some events that garnered some interest like that horse scene and meeting new people like Leck who dies later and Bitterblue, I struggled to find a connection with them even when Bitterblue got better at fighting with Katsa's help. That's essentially it. What a shame. ( )

In a world of gossip girls, it is perhaps refreshing to have a teenage heroine who cuts off all her hair because it gets in her way; and Kristin Cashore’s eccentric and absorbing first novel, “Graceling,” has such a heroine. Katsa is tough, awkward, beautiful and consumed by pressing moral issues
