Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Heroines
When it comes to characters, readers have an endless amount of chatter to share. If they're good characters, we gush about them. If they're villains, there is no end to our dislike of them. If they're wishy-washy, we bemoan the fact that they never do anything. In particular we girls do tend to gush about the leading men - because who doesn't love a good swoon-worthy hero!? But we don't want to forget the lovely heroines who seem to be dominating the book world - particularly the YA market. That is a genre that gives readers countless strong females. We all love a female character that isn't afraid to be kick-butt if need be, but who also knows when to ask for help or is memorable simply for her personality. Here are some of my favorites.
Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books (Or you could pick movies/tv)
We've done this topic before so you could always do heroines you love since the last time we did this topic,
This novel gets a lot of recognition because of its titular character - and a particularly unique kiss, but its heroine shouldn't go unnoticed. She's a great leading lady and I admire her grit and determination to make a life for her family even in such terrible circumstances.
Technically Felicity isn't a book character, but since this was opened up to movies or TV shows and Felicity is a character from a comic book, she totally fits in this meme. I love Felicity's character so much and am hoping in the end she won't be so stubborn as regards her feelings for Oliver.
Finley is a lovely character. She's vulnerable yet much stronger than those around her give her credit for.
Again, Kate is another TV show character but she does have a connection to books. The lead male character on Castle, Richard Castle is an author and the show is so popular that the books he writes as that character are published under the name Richard Castle and in them is a character named Nikki Heat who was inspired by Kate Beckett. So yeah, it goes.
Aside from her foolishness regarding her mother's case - decisions that nearly cost her Castle, I love Kate's character.
One of my favorites always. Love this series and this heroine.
This book is too cute for its own good. Every time I get to one of Lizzie's humorous quips I immediately can picture Ashley's portrayal of her in the video series. Lots of fun.
Definitely a memorable YA character who is not only cool as a person, she has some pretty awesome super powers.
Though we might not have gotten to know her as well as I'd have liked, Rosemarie shows great promise in becoming the kind of leading lady we crave in YA fiction. She's lovely and feminine yet isn't without great strengths that will serve her well in ruling her lands.
Wonderful character. 'Nuff said.
Though she first appeared in the WB TV show, Veronica Mars has now become a book series, written by the TV script writer/creator. I'm very glad since she is a savvy and fabulous female lead.
There are countless others I could share. But these ten are awesome.
