Friday Favorites: Books about Rebellion/Freedom

Friday Favorites: Books about Rebellion/Freedom

Heck yes! Time for another Friday Favorites, courtesy of Something of the Book (thank you so much for creating this fun weekly meme!) and this one is all about rebellion and freedom. I love me some books that fight the system, okayyyyyyy? Go check out the topics for July and join in on the fun! Trust me, you’ll love it.

It all started with this book. The Inheritance Cycle is a huge book about rebelling from the evil Empire and gaining freedom from the rule of Galbatorix. I just finished the second book recently (check out my review if you haven’t already) and holy crap. That book was insane! I need to find out what happens. I need to know if Eragon beats Galbatorix!


I would say this series is about rebellion because Tea grew up thinking that she was going in one direction, only to be betrayed. So you best believe she’s going to rebel from the kingdom that placed a price on her head and she’s gonna cause some havoc, just like I want her to. (I haven’t read the last two books yet, so I don’t know what happens but I know that it’s going to be amazing.)


Big duh! You know that these kids are gonna kick some major ass and rebel against Bei-Tech for destroying a whole colony! I mean, what else would you expect from a space opera like this?


Another evil Empire, another rebellion to fight. While maybe only one half of the story is about a rebellion… well maybe not. Rebelling against the angels, rebelling against the Empire, rebelling against one’s nature… there’s a lot of rebelling in this one. I can’t wait to read the second one.


I’m still trying to figure out how it took 74 years for someone to finally rebel against the system of KILLING CHILDREN FOR SPORT but whatever. There’s rebellion. There’s a sense of freedom at the end. There’s four movies for three books. It happens.

Well that was a fun list! What’s on yours? I know I’m missing a lot since I’m still not caught up on a lot of awesome books out there. Let me know what I should add to my TBR list (trust me, I love adding recommendations from you guys so don’t be shy!) and which rebellion or freedom story was your favorite.

  1. I absolutely adore the Illuminae trilogy, it was so great! I also loved the Hunger Games because I feel Katniss is one of the few protagonists of dystopic YA that doesn’t annoy the crap out of me,
    All the other books are on my TBR, hope I get to them soon lol.
    Great post!

    1. Right?! Katniss wasn’t too terrible for me either, although I did not finish the third book yet. I still also need to finish Illuminae trilogy as well (last two books for me). Thanks so much Marti! You’ll have to let me know what you think once you get to them ❤
