Top 10 Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish!
These are my favourite bookish heroines! They aren’t really in order.
1) Lizzie Bennet from Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
Lizzie is just the best. She’s funny, she’s smart, she’s well read, and she doesn’t take any crap! She’s my favourite character.
2) Jane Eyre from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
Jane is pretty excellent. She is smart, and convicted! She never waivers in her beliefs!
3) Meira from Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch
She is totally kick butt! She’d do anything for her people.
4) Kelsea from The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
She’s smart and a great queen! She’s also just totally awesome.
5) Kestrel from The Winner’s Curse Marie Rutkoski
She’s strong-willed and talented, and super smart.
6) Carol Danvers from Captain Marvel by Kelly Sue DeConnick
Because girl superheroes are the best.
7) Kamala Khan from Ms Marvel by G. Willow Wilson
She’s so funny and goofy and such a good friend!
8) Kathy from Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
There’s just something about her.
9) Becky Bloomwood from Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
She’s so funny I could die.
10) Emily from Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi
This little girl with powers that has to save everybody! She’s awesome!
