Galentine's Day: Celebrating Fierce Female Friendships


With Valentine’s Day in our rearview, boxes of chocolates downed, and romance sufficiently celebrated, we’d be remiss if we didn’t call out another—maybe EVEN MORE important—recent holiday. Galentine’s Day, a day to honor friendships between women, was February 13th, and what better way to celebrate than to highlight some of the fierce lady friendships found in the Midnight Tide Publishing catalog. As a publishing company home to many fierce female voices and friendships, we’re happy to help you find your next Galentine-worthy read.


Here are just a few recommendations from our collection:


The P.A.N. by Jenny Hickman

Vivienne and Emily


In this modern-day Peter Pan reimagining, Vivienne’s best friend Emily is funny, fiercely protective, and not afraid to tell it to you straight. Vivienne and Emily are proof that you don’t need to be related by blood to be family, as together, the two new PAN recruits navigate the exciting world of Neverland’s Kensington Academy while having each other’s backs no matter what.


The Dragon’s Bride by galentines Elle Beaumont and Christis Christie

Imara and Sylvi


In the Dragon’s Bride, Imara is thrust into a new life, betrothed to the Dragon Master. She’s alone, and having been ostracized most of her life, she is without friends. However, she and one of the household members in Master Lajos’ home soon form a tight-knit bond and often serve to exasperate the master of the house. What better way to bond than to infuriate one’s future husband?


Heart and Hero by Gianne Rabena

Karla and Nida


As two of the main female protagonists in the New Hero series, Karla and Nida have a developing sister-like relationship. While both are introverted, Nida is usually the one who acts strong and dependable despite often feeling like her powers never contribute to more heroic efforts. Nida plays a key role in helping Karla, who is simultaneously overpowered and helpless in the face of a prophecy, come to terms with her power and role.


Between the Quiet by Candace Robinson

Tuesday and Francis


In Between the Quiet, a paranormal novelette, Tuesday and Francis have a special, defy-all-odds friendship and are committed to helping each other always. After a life-altering event occurs, Tuesday’s dreams are put on hold, but even a thing like death can’t stop true friendship from reaching Tuesday when she needs it most.
