Top Ten Favourite Heroines From Books
2. Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. She’s sassy and frustrating, but loyal and fierce. She fights for what she believes in and she has blue hair.
3. Claire Randal/Beauchamp/Fraser from Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Gawd Claire is an incredible woman. Her perseverance and strength in the face of what she went through made me realize I would probably lie down and cry if I were in her position. Her character through the entire series is spectacular; witty and quick, strong willed and loving, kind, opinionated, and absolutely captivating.
4. Brianna Mackenzie from the Outlander series. Bree is just such a full of life, exuberant character. I fell in love with her in Dragonfly in Amber and being a part of her epic journey has been incredible. She certainly takes after her father and absolutely leaps off the pages.
6. Fiona Finnegan from The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly. Fiona goes through some tough tough shit in her life, but she emerges through it all one of the wealthiest women in London and New York, finding her happily ever after through strong will and fiesty personality. She was breathtaking.
7. India Selwyn-Jones from The Winter Rose by Jennifer Donnelly. Being a female doctor in the 1900’s is no easy feat, and India came up against plenty of hard situations, but she kept a dream alive throughout it all and wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. She fought tooth and nail for what she wanted. The women of these two (three but I haven’t read the 3rd yet) books are incredible heroine’s!
9. Caroline Piasecki from Deeper by Robin York. Caroline goes through some really tough stuff in this duology and she pulls through it incredibly. I loved how up to date her struggle is and it made me really admire her for the way she handles herself in the day and age of the internet and the repercussions it can have.
10. Victoria Darling from A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller. Victoria was awesome. She stuck up for what she wanted in life, she made sacrifices, she embraced her art in all forms it came in, she didn’t conform to what her stuffy parents wanted, and she took an active part in the Woman’s Suffrage Movement in London. She was a fantastic heroine!
10. Lucero Elisa de Riqueza from The Girl of Fire and Thorns but most specifically The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson. Elisa goes through SO much growth throughout this series and i’ve never come across another heroine who does grow as much as her. Her strength and grit are incredible. And her romance with Hector will forever be my favourite.
