My Top Ten Favorite Heroines

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week, they post a new Top Ten topic and other bloggers respond with their own lists. I take part in this meme when I have something to say for the topic and I remember what day it is.

The Meriam Webster definition of heroine is

1. a woman who is admired for great or brave acts or fine qualities

2. the chief female character in a story, play, movie, etc.

That being said, I’m focusing on female characters that I feel are emotionally, mentally, and–to some extent–physically strong. Characters that command the story they are in and grow throughout. Most of all, characters that I connected with as a reader–the kind of protagonist that I would befriend in a heartbeat if they were real.

In no particular order…

  1. Vin from Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn Trilogy
  2. Cammie from Ally Carter’s Gallagher Girl Series
  3. Celaena from Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series
  4. Miriam Black from Chuck Wendig’s Blackbirds series
  5. Gemma Doyle from Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle trilogy
  6. Puck from Maggie Stiefvater’s Scorpio Races
  7. Viola from Patrick Ness’s Chaos Walking trilogy
  8. Verity from Elizabeth Wein’s Code Name Verity
  9. Kat from Ally Carter’s Heist Society series
  10. Rose from Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series
