Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books

toptentuesday This weeks topic was hard for me. I obviously love literary heroines … I mean look at the title of this blog. So narrowing down all my favorite female characters to ten was no easy task. Here’s what I came up with … even though some of the ladies left off the list are breaking my heart. Let me know who your favorite heroines from books are in the comments!

Big thanks to The Broke and the Bookishย for hosting this weekly book meme!

  1. Jo March! How did I forget Jo March?
    I found the History of Love too confusing and convoluted to have any strong feelings about any of the characters! What did you find in Alma that was admirable?

  2. A great list! I have similar favorites. My list would include Sabriel from the book bearing her name (by Garth Nix); Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird; Moses from Three Times Lucky (Sheila Turnage); Katarina Bishop from Ally Carter’s Heist Society series; Francesca from Saving Franesca by Melina Marchetta.

  3. I love that you included so many childhood favourites, because I think the heroines we read as children impact us on such a deep level and are so important to our developing sense or our place in the world. Basically, the more badass ladies we encounter on the page, the goddamn better!
