Elsa? Do you want to build a book list?
1. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Girl who has spent a lifetime suppressing magical powers learns to LET THEM GO. Also there is snow everywhere.
2. The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine
Two royal sisters who love each other more than anything, and one is shy and afraid while the the other is outgoing. When the life of one of the sisters becomes imperiled, the other sets out on a perilous quest to save her.
3. Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
More sisters!It's darker and certainly more violent than Frozen, but still. Fairy tale sisters.
4. Princess Academy by Shannon Hale
Princesses! Set in a snowy place! People mining stone just like Kristoff mines ice!
5. Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George
Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow is the more obvious George pick but a) I haven't read that and b) this still fits very well. Sisters! Magic! Curses! True love! Fairy tale retelling!
6. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Lady power! A palace! Two boys! And in the sequel there is HIDDEN POWERS INSIDE PEOPLE THAT THEY MUST SUPPRESS. Plus, "a heart of ice". It says so right there in the tagline. Plus Elsa and Celaena have so many commonalities.
7. Poison by Bridget Zinn
Feel good fantasy, strong female friendship, adorable animal sidekick, super adorable ship.
8. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
Definitely darker and more complex than Frozen, but there's a strong sister dynamic, a tricksy false love interest, and fairy tale redux-ing.
9. Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
Sisters again! Magic-doing sisters.
10. Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay
Another fairy tale redux wherein the first boy might not be the right boy, and what you think of as monstrous or dangerous might not actually be.
11. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
Let it go! Embrace your inner awesome! Seraphina needs to stop concealing and not feeling and putting on a show.
