Top Ten Favourite Heroines

I… I just can’t… I have literally been staring at all the books/mangas/movies I have loved and have had female characters in there that I love and I just cannot pick my favourite. It is hard enough to pick my favourite book which has many people and a story to love but just one character? I just can’t do it. So this list is in no particular order.

1. Sorcha from The Sevenwaters Series by Juliet Marillie – The struggle she has to go through pretty much all by herself. She is a truly awesome and strong heroine.

2. Faina from The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey – While she isn’t a typical choice, I just love the mystery surrounding her and that makes her an amazing character.

3. Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer – She is such an awesome characters. I love how she handles things and her general personality.

4. Ceriana from The Forgotten War by Howard Sargent – Im not even going to go into why I love her because it would ruin it, but I love her.

5. Lucy from Elfen Lied by Lynn Okamoto – She goes through so much struggle and it has made her sort of bad (well really bad), but she doesn’t want to be. Her story and character is just amazing.

6. Wanda/Melanie from The Host by Stephanie Meyer – I am putting them together since they are for pretty much all of the book. Together they really make a completely well rounded character who is so interesting.

7. Katniss from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – Do I really need to go into this one? Im sure she is on a lot of lists this week.

8. Rose from The Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead – Again, do I need to say much. Rose may have some issues but she is still an awesome female of butt kicking.

9. Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – I felt like I needed to put a heroine from the classics in here. She goes for what she wants even if its looked down on, and she stays true to herself.

10. I struggled with choosing this last place, there are still a number of heroines I wanted to put on this list, but since I have mostly picked goody goody people I have chosen to put Nyx from Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge – She is brave and willing to sacrifice herself for those she is supposed to love, but because she is being asked to do those things makes her have hatred within her heart and this makes her an interesting heroine.

  1. I recognize only Katniss from this list (I’ve seen the first movie, never read the books)
    I am hearing a lot about Lunar Chronicles, especially Cinder, I am hoping to get around to reading it this year!

  2. I love Nyx. She almost made my list as well. And Katniss and Rose, of course. There’s a lot of the books on your list that I haven’t read though, so I’ll probably check some of them out. Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my TTT earlier. :)

  3. It really is hard! One of the hardest topics yet!!! Definitely overlooked some great heroines! Oooh, I love Sorcha, nice choice! Eep, and I STILL need to read THE SNOW CHILD. Every year, I say I will for Fairy Tale Fortnight. I never do. ^^;;; I almost chose Cinder and Katniss!!! No room! Great choices!

  4. I have the Sevenwaters series on my TBR pile, so glad that one of the characters from that made your list. I’m really looking forward to starting the books.

    Elizabeth Bennett is a great heroine, I wish I had her way with words (I love all her confrontations with Darcy) :)
