Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme was:
Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books (Or you could pick movies/tv): We’ve done this topic before so you could always do heroines you love since the last time we did this topic, heroines in a particular genre, etc.
I could go on and on and on about my favorite women in literature, but I’ve narrowed it down to ten somehow. So in no particular order, here are ten of my favorite female heroes?
Hermione (Harry Potter series; JK Rowling)
Katniss (Hunger Games trilogy; Suzanne Collins)
Blue Sargent (The Raven Cycle; Maggie Stiefvater)
Michonne (The Walking Dead; Robert Kirkman)
Alana (Saga; Brian K. Vaughan)
Scout Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird; Harper Lee)
Celaena Sardothien (Throne of Glass; Sarah J. Maas) – I’ve only read one and a half books about her and I already love her
Lila Bard (A Darker Shade of Magic; V.E. Schwab) – this book comes out today! Check out my review HERE.
Ree (Winter’s Bone; Daniel Woodrell)
Alice (Alice Adventure’s in Wonderland; Lewis Carroll)
Who are some of your favorite heroines?

So many favoutries, and so many others I haven’t read but really want to, especially The Raven Cycle and To Kill a Mockingbird. Great list!
You should definitely check out BOTH of those! 🙂
Hermione, Katniss, and Scout definitely deserved to be on this list! 😉 Girl power!
(Tris from Divergent and June from Legend would also be featured on my list.) 😀
Exactly! Girl power! 🙂
I haven’t read Legend yet, but she was on a TON of lists this week. I definitely need to read those books soon.
Who doesn’t love hermione and Katniss!
Only crazy people! 🙂
I don’t believe that I didn’t think Alice because she is one of my fav. Great choices!
I almost forgot about her too, but I’m glad I didn’t! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
Michonne is such a fantastic character. And I LOVE Alana. SHe is so fierce! Great list!
Thanks for stoppin’ by! have a great week!
I LOVE Michonne! She’s so awesome and a total boss. 🙂 Hope you have a great week as well!
Most excellent! I would’ve probably chosen Michonne, too, if I’d been making a list with women characters instead of just girls. Because, really, it’s hard to imagine not wanting her on your side. :
She’s exactly who’d I’d want on my side in a zombie apocalypse! You’re so right.
I’m seriously wondering how I somehow forgot Blue from The Raven Cycle! Love your list, and that you’ve included Scout!
I HAD to include Blue. She’s so wonderfully weird and I love her. 🙂
Blue is a great character–I love the ones who embrace the weird.
Same here! She’s so strange and I love that.
I love Alice on your list, thanks is an awesome addition! Great list!

She’s so great. Had to put her on the list!
Scout! I love that you included her!!! And I’m excited for ADSOM! I’ve heard such great things! Totally agree with Hermione, Katniss, and Celaena! Great choices!
Scout’s been one of my favorite characters in literature for a long time!
I hope you get to read ADSOM SOON!!
I imagine that Hermione is getting a lot of love today! Scout is also an amazing choice – I hadn’t thought of her. Love the list!!
SO much love. Hermione deserves to be on everyone’s list! As does Scout. I LOVE Scout.
Hermione and Celaena would definitely make it to my top ten list too, they are certainly without a shadow of a doubt tough heroines that I admire! I haven’t met a lot of the other ones that you’ve mentioned, I shall have to rectify that straight away. Great list! 🙂
Hermione and Celaena are both awesome, I agree! They are tough and independent, which I definitely appreciate!
I really like your list, even if I don’t know some of those characters! my ttt<3
Hey! It won’t let me comment on your blog, but I really need to read Legend already so I can meet June!
Great list. There are a few I haven’t head of, but I’ll be checking them out.
Which ones? i’m just curious! I love to spread the book love! 🙂
Wooh! We both have Katniss and Hermione on our lists!! I sense they were popular picks this week 🙂 also, thanks for dropping by on my list. Your choices are great, as always!
I honestly don’t know if there was a single list I saw today that didn’t have Hermione on it! She totally deserves to be on every single one! 🙂
Excited for the Raven Cycle! All these new characters to meet that have made lists today! R x
I CAN’T wait for you to read those books, Rachel! 🙂
Blue is getting a whole lot of love today! Also, Hermione forever. 🙂
I love seeing Blue on so many lists! She so deserves it. Blue is awesome. 🙂
I think Hermione made a lot of people’s lists! She’s definitely one of the most awesome female characters in Lit. I was thinking of Blue in from TRB, but then my feelings changed towards her after reading TDT. I’ve heard so many amazing things about Saga, but I haven’t read it yet. I should read it at some point! Great list 😀
Hermione is a boss. I totally agree she’s one of the most awesome female characters in literature.
You should definitely check out Saga! It’s awesome! 🙂
Hermione is a pretty good one, but i have to say that overall i wasn’t impressed with the female representation in the HP books. (I won’t rant, though i could write essays!)
I have yet to read To Kill A Mocking Bird, but it’s coming up on my list soon 🙂
Feel free to rant! Lol.
AH! I can’t wait for you to read To Kill a Mockingbird. it’s wonderful. Hope you enjoy!
Good list. Yay for Hermione, Katniss, and Scout! 🙂
Yay! I love all three of them. 🙂
Oh, I think Scout deserves to be on every single list. Such a cool character. Hermione and Katniss too!
YES. Scout deserves to have her OWN list. 🙂
That is an interesting list! Alice – how did I not think about her?
There were just so many to choose from! I left so many off my list.
Man I still need to pick Saga up! Loved your list 😀
YES! Saga is SO good!
I can’t believe that I forgot Hermoine! But I feel like she’s a given! Great choices! You’re blog is amazing and you’ve got a new follower!
Lizzie @ lizziethesarcasticblonde.blogspot.com
I think you’re right – Hermione is a given as a favorite heroine. She’s awesome!
Aw! Thank you!! 🙂
Great list! We both added Hermione to ours. She’s fantastic.
She’s so awesome! She’s on pretty much every single list today!
I almost put Hermione on my list too, she’s truly amazing! I haven’t read Saga yet but I see all kinds of love for it online!
You should check Saga out! It’s weird and crazy and strange and so totally awesome.
It’s great to see you mentioned Scout Finch!
I love Scout! She’s always been one of my favorite characters in literature! 🙂
Yay for Alice, Scout, and Hermione! Such a good list!
So many awesome women in literature to choose from!
Hermione and Katniss, of course! Scout and Alice are great choices! I haven’t read Winter’s Bone, but I did see the film – Ree was amazing!
She’s just as badass in the book as she is in the movie! She’s incredible.
Honestly, I only just this week found out there was a book! Added it to my Goodreads TBR.
I cannot believe I didn’t even think about Scout & Delilah. I am ashamed of myself for that. I do however love seeing who everyone picked! Great choices!

Scout has always and will always be one of my favorite characters in literature! 🙂
