Have some Terry Pratchett. Buzzfeed put together a nice set of quotes a while back.
–edited to add–
Equal Rites is a wonderful story about a young girl named Eskarina who at birth was given a wizard’s staff by inattentive accident – the donating wizard thought she was the 8th son of an 8th son at the time – and grows up bonded to it in ways she doesn’t realize immediately. As she ages, though, it becomes clear the staff is working through her and the only solution to this magical problem is to give her adequate magical training.
Granny Weatherwax, a very talented witch on the Discworld, takes Esk under her wing to teach her proper witching – which is to say: how to get things done without resorting to (much) magic. Esk learns a lot from her but when Esk learns of the existence of a school for wizards called the Unseen University, she’s determined to show that women can be just as good at wizardry as the men. Of course, nothing quite goes to plan…
It’s a good one.
