Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Heroines from Books

nfn tttHi everyone! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week the theme is Top Ten Favorite Heroines from Books, which I’m really excited about. There are so many great female characters in fiction these days that seem to be always in the shadow of the men. Well, step aside guys, because the girls are here to steal the show! In no particular order:

  1. Hermione Granger, Isabelle Lightwood, and Marie-Laure would all be on my list. I’d also add Meira from Snow Like Ashes and Tris Prior from The Divergent series. The rest of my list would take time to think about.


    1. I haven’t read Snow Like Ashes yet, but it sounds like such a great book! The fact that there’s a good heroine in it makes me want to read it even more. Thanks for commenting! 🙂
