Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted  by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s category was Top Ten Favourite Heroines in Books (or movies/ tv.)

1. Elizabeth Bennett (Pride and Prejudice) Because she goes against the conventional norms and wants to marry for love- even if she despises the man when she first meets him. She also seems like a real genuine woman.

2. Hermione Granger (Harry Potter series) She’s brainy, she’s obviously the one in charge out of the three of them, and she’s a bookworm!

3. Tris Prior (Divergent) She’s bad ass. Enough said.

4. Valkyrie Cain (Skulduggery Pleasant) Because hanging out with a skeleton detective and dealing with magic is awesome!

5. Bridget Jones (does she count?) She’s a curvy woman with many vices but she’s also very very funny!

6. Mrs Hudson (Sherlock Holmes) She’s more than just a sweet old lady.

7. Arwen (Lord of the Rings) A badass she-elf helping to save Middle Earth and Queen of Gondor. I love her.

8. Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games) Faced with death she does everything she can to survive.

9. Molly Weasley (Harry Potter) “Not my daughter, you bitch!”

10. Wanderer (The Host) She might be an alien but her character spoke to me about how to fight vulnerability.

  1. Firstly, I love you automatically because you love Sherlock. 10/10 would fangirl over your blog again.

    Secondly, I should have added Molly Weasley to my Top Ten! Darn! But I already have Hermione and Ginny, so that’s too much Harry Potter in one list 😉
    Out of all these books, which one would you recommend the most? 🙂
    Your blog is so cute, I love the fact that it has the wallpaper and skull from Sherlock ❤

    My TTT (

    • Thanks 😀
      I actually have a TTT that is completely Sherlock Holmes based if you’ve not found it yet 😛
      Haha you can never have too much Harry Potter! !!

      I’d actually recommend the Skulduggery Pleasant series just because it needs more love.

      Aw thank you. It’s gone through a lot of redecorating and I’m finally happy with it.
      I’ll check out your TTT! 😀
