Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite heroines

Top Ten Tuesday

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?

  1. 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. :

  2. 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! 🙂

  3. 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 😀

  4. 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 🙂
