Top Ten Tuesday this week is about
❄ Favourite Heroines ❄
1. Celeana Sardothien (Throne of Glass series). Smart + fabulous + lethal = perfect.
2. Hermione Granger (Harry Potter). I think Hermione has been one of my my role models ever since I first read about her. She's so likable and easy to identify with, without even mentioning how kind, loyal, and hardworking she is. Hermione seriously is the perfect human being (witches are humans, right?).
3. Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games Trilogy). Come one, does this one even need explaining? Katniss is the definition of kickass!
4. Daenerys Targaryen (A Song of Ice and Fire series). Another strong, intelligent, independent, glorious, and kind character. If I ended up being in the game of thrones, Daenerys would most definitely be in my top 3 when thinking about with whom to team up with.
5. Raisa ana'Marianna (The Seven Realms series). Queendom can be better than kingdom, and Raisa sure can demonstrate that.
6. Bridget Jones (Bridget Jones). If we're being technical, Bridget is more of a antiheroine than heroine. But in my opinion, the fact that she lacks the traditional heroine traits makes her just as good heroine as any other. If not even better.
7. Elizabeth Bennett (Pride and Prejudice). Funny, witty, and caring but doesn't care what others think of her - sold!
8. Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles series). Who doesn't love the underdog? Especially, when it's clear that she is meant for great things!
9. Kestrel (The Winner's Trilogy). Even though she is only seventeen, I love the fact that she is able to think with her own brain - she knows where to put her efforts and is a critical thinker. No BS with her.
10. Magdalena "Lena" Haloway (Delirium Trilogy). Lena's character development has to be one of my favourites: to develop from conforming, timid girl into this brave and loyal person.
Just talking about these wonderful heroines makes me want to reread all these books. I can't think of many other amazing things than a well written heroine!
