In Her Shoes (2): Skye from Foretold

In Her Shoes is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Vanya at YA Story Teller. To participate, simply put yourself in the shoes of a heroine you've recently read about, and then talk about what you would do in her place, or what you've learned from her.

Featuring this week:
Skye Tomaganuk from Foretold 

Skye is one of the main characters in the YA fantasy/romance trilogy (Daughters of Saraqael) by Raine Thomas and the female lead in Foretold which is the 3rd installment in the trilogy. If I was in her place, I would not change one thing. Skye is a character you can't hate or criticize, why? because she is so incredibly adorable in her personality. You can't help but like her. I guess you could describe her as someone with a bubbly personality, but not over the top. Just the right amount. And she is so animated and I love how despite all of the change and danger she is in, she always remains so incredibly positive and hopeful. 

Skye is a character full of light and considering that the has gone through so many life changing situations (learning that she is only half human and that she has to live on another plane of existence and have a guardian and train to fight) - not easy, you can't help but be impressed. She also has one of the scariest villains I've read about after her in Foretold and despite not being an aggressive person, she still tackles every dangerous situation with as much strength as she can muster and a lot of humour.

 I love how Skye's character will make the funniest of observations in the most random of moments, when you least expect it and it's very cool because her true self always emerges despite what circumstance she is placed in. She loves music, fashion, she is a bit of a girly girl, she loves dance and she just can't help and show who she is, at all times. And because she remains so true to herself, I would definitely say that if I was in her shoes, I would not adjust her attitude because it is a great one.


  1. Love the post, Jennifer! I always find it fascinating which characters in the series that readers connect with, and Skye tends to be the female character that surprises a lot of people in the end. This is a fun meme! :)

    1. Thank you, Raine :)

      Yes. Skye is constantly surprising me as I get further into the series. Love her character!

  2. Hehe, nice post. Can't help to notice that her name definitvely reflects her personality, don't you agree x)
    My In Her Shoes post this week
    Oh and, have fun reading Clockwork Prince. I love Cassandra Clare, but I didn't get there yet. But soon... ;)

    1. You make such an interesting point. I had not thought about that till now, but you are right on the money. Her name Skye truly does reflect her personality. Pretty awesome, indeed :)

      Thanks Caro :) And Clockwork Prince is going really well so far. *High Five* for loving Cassandra Clare, too ;) Her books are so much fun to read.

    2. Somtimes it just happens that you miss the most obvious things if you look too closely. Since I haven't read the book, only your post, it literally jumped at me. ^^

      *High Five* I guess you've read all CC books that are out?

    3. Gotcha and so true :)

      And, I have not read all CC books that are out yet but I own them all and plan on doing so, lol. I still need to finish most of the The Mortal Instruments books. It's just when I found out Clockwork Angel was set in Victorian England, I geeked out and put the TMI books aside for the time being and picked up The Infernal Device ones, instead, haha. But all of the CC books that I have read thus far have been amazing. I really like her style of writing :)

  3. I definitely need to read Raine's books soon! Your reviews of her books made me dying to read it so I definitely have to grab a copy soon!

    And oo! I love Defy's cover! It's gorgeous!

    Awesome post, Jennifer! I might need to participate in this meme too! ;)

    1. Yay. So happy to hear that, Celine <3 Because Raine's books are YA perfection, imo :)

      And on Defy's cover -> I am right there with you. So gorgeous!

      Thanks so much, Celine. Glad you liked it. Oh, you definitely should, girl ;) It's such a fun meme!

  4. Thanks for participating in the In Her Shoes MEME! I hope it gets popular around the book bloggers. It's lots of fun to read what people think of various book characters :))

    I haven't read Raine's books, but your post is definitely making my fingers itch to get them :)
