Today I'm sharing with you ten of my favorite heroines. These women are fantastic in every way and I love them so much. I made some tough cuts for this list - so it really is a tribute to the authors of these characters for creating such fantastic heronies.
Celeanea Sardothian- Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J Maas
Celeanea has quickly become one of my all time favorite characters. I can't get enough of her and her story. I binge read the Throne of Glass series recently and I'm practically forcing my friends to all read the books too so they can feel what I've been feeling reading these books. I am team Celeana 100%. She's bad-ass, feminine, strong, and I love her. Anyone who hears me talk about this girl can tell I'm way too emotionally attached for it to be healthy.
Beth- Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
Celia Bowen- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Scarlett O'Hara- Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
I cannot resist putting this firey Irish Southern belle on this list. I grew up watching Gone With the Wind and I read the book when I was in 7th grade. Let's be honest - Scarlett is a bitch. I wouldn't be surprised if she could kill with that single eyebrow raise. But that's what I love about her. She's that wonderful anti-heroine where you want to hate her, but you can't help but root for her.
Elizabeth Bennett- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Queen Eleanor- Eleanor of Aquitaine Trilogy by Elizabeth Chadwick
Technically, she Queen Eleanor is a real person. But, she's a prominent character in Elizabeth Chadwicks novels. I first read about her in The Greatest Knight and thought she was fabulous. When I heard she would be getting a trilogy of her own, I was over the moon! I love that a historical figure such as she is receiving the recognition she deserves.
Verity- Code Name Verity by Elizabeth E. Wein
Jo March- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Hermione Granger- Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling
Linking up with The Broke and Bookish for Top Ten Tuesday.
