Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is a Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books. This topic will be quite hard for me because I find few heroines in books memorable enough to remember why I like them.
So here’s my list in no particular order:
1. Emily from Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
Emily is basically me. While I was reading Since You’ve Been Gone, I had to stop reading, blink in disbelief, and wonder HEY. Is Morgan Matson writing about me? I connected with Emily utterly and completely.
2. Scarlet from Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
I love this girl. Scarlet is tough, never gives up, and cares a lot about her family, which was how she got dragged into the whole mess in the first place. Plus, Scarlet also won over a handsome awesome guy like Wolf.
3. Em from All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill
Em is brave. Like, there are no other words to describe her – who else will have the guts to try to kill the person she loves, who is also her best friend? Not only did she try to do so once, she tries to do so countless times in order to save the world.
4. Sophie from Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
Sophie is well-known in my mind for making me laugh so much and so hard. I also love how she didn’t fall and bow to Archer’s feet when she first met him. Sophie can care less about a guy who is hot if his personality is horrible.
5. Vicky from A Mad Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller
Vicky was an extremely brave character (I know, I know, I need to stop using “brave” so much), especially for a girl in her era. Vicky wasn’t afraid to get naked in her art class, join the women’s suffrage, and go against her parents wishes, which was a HUGE deal back then.
6. Anna from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
“Anna confused.” That was the moment Anna utterly and complete won my heart. That line is exactly something I would say, you just replace “Anna” with “Kelly.”
Okay, that’s sadly it. I have to give up on six heroines because I can’t think of any others that I like. What are your top ten favorite heroines in books? I want to know!
