Top Ten Tuesday (#82) (2/24/15) Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books

It took me a while to come up with this list.  I had to look at what I've read and come up with my ten.  When I think of heroines, I put them more in the paranormal, dystopian, or sci-fi catagories.  I have a hard time thinking of main characters in contemporaries as heroines.  Here is my list.
Alice (Ali) Bell
Linh Cinder
Nikki Beckett
Miranda North

This one is tricky to explain without spoiling things too much, but the Miranda North that is the main character of the series, not any of the other Miranda Norths.
Hermione Granger
Katniss Everdeen
Gwen Frost

Who doesn't wish she was as bad-ass as Rose Hathaway?  She gets a little irritating in some of the middle books, but by the end, she is back to being her awesome self.
Cammie Morgan
Suze Simon


  1. I freakin love Cammie and Katniss and Cinder!! Yes! Good choices. Haha I love this top 10.

    The Life of Little Me

  2. SUZE!!! YAY!!!! Looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooved this series when I read it several years ago!! It was one of those rare paranormal series I discovered loooooooooooooong before paranormal YA took off! And I am beyond excited for the 7th book to release next year! 2016 will rock!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Awesome list!! I included Katniss, Cammie, Rose, and Hermione on my list as well. I've only read the first book in the Everneath series so far, but I can see why you included Nikki. The Lunar Chronicles series is still on my TBR list and it looks like I will have to check out Alice in Zombieland.

    Here is my TTT:

  4. Katniss, Hermione, and Rose made my list too! Guess we got good taste!! I still need to read Cinder, I'm so behind on everything I need to read. There doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to get around to them all!!

  5. I picked Hermione too! Especially in Prisoner of Azkaban.
    I love that you put Cammie on this list - I can't believe I neglected her on mine! She's the best.

  6. I really need to read the White Rabbit Chronicles. I bought the first two books. I forgot about the Mediator series, good choice! Katniss and Rose are on my list, too. Great list!
