This week we’re talking about our favorite heroines from books!! I’m happy to admit that this is hard because there are a ton that we would love to feature… which isn’t always the case when we’re talking about character types. It makes me happy that there are so many strong female characters in fiction and while I know we didn’t list ten, these ladies are at the top of any list for us!
Celaena Sardothien – Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas.
Celaena is one of those characters that has more to her than what is on the surface. She is definitely full of herself (it’s what usually gets her into trouble) but let’s face it, she is strong, smart, and definitely earned her reputation. But underneath that, she is also just a young girl who likes girly things, loves to read, and wants to be loved.
Wick Tate – Find Me Series by Romily Bernard.
She is nerdy, sarcastic, smart, and loyal and if she were real, I would want to be BFF’s with her. Her inner dialogue is one of the best things I’ve read and I think everyone should read this series to get introduced to her.
Caymen Meyers – The Distance Between Us by Kasie West
Caymen is like a long lost sister of ours… she’s snarky, sarcastic and funny and totally someone we can see hanging out with all the time.
Kestrel – The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski
I love smart characters and Kestrel is always thinking ahead. I don’t always agree with her decisions but I appreciate the fact that she does what she thinks is right and she doesn’t apologize for the things she loves (music).
Mary Howard – Brazen by Katherine Longshore
Mary is an interesting mix of personalities and that is what made her stand out for me in this book. She challenged the norms of society and did what she wanted to…which probably wasn’t easy in the sixteenth century.
Sage Czinski – The Queen of Bright and Shiny Things by Ann Aguirre
Sage has been through quite a bit and despite that she recognizes the importance of seeing the good things in life even though you might have to look really hard for them. I loved her desire to focus on the positive versus dwelling on the negatives…and trust me, she had every opportunity to go the other way.
Rachel Watts – Every Breath by Ellie Marney
I want to spend a day hanging out with Rachel… Not only does she get to hang out with Mycroft all the time, but she’s smart and I just adore her!
Blue Sargent – Raven Boys Series by Maggie Stiefvater
I can’t even put into words how much I heart Blue … and I love her relationships with the boys and her family. She’s one of my absolute favorites!
There you have it… Some our favorite heroines from books that we love! Who are your favorites? Let us know in the comments!
